Ruby Rose’s Batwoman took a shot at Ben Affleck’s Batman design in the most recent episode of the Arrowverse series focusing on Kate Kane.
Ruby Rose’s Batwoman series hasn’t shied away from making sure Kate Kane can stand on her own two bat-feet without using Batman as a crutch, although obviously he’s the catalyst for her putting on the cape and cowl. But the Batwoman show has started making jokes at the expense of other takes on live-action Batman suits. The most recent episode of Ruby Rose’s Batwoman slyly mocked Ben Affleck’s Batman suit from Justice League.
When Ruby Rose’s Batwoman began packing supplies to take down Alice once and for all, she asked Luke Fox if there were any night-vision goggles stashed away in the Batcave that she could use. But Luke quickly retorted “Batman doesn’t do goggles”. Anyone who’s sat through Justice League will spot the joke at the expense of Ben Affleck’s Batman suit, who wore goggles over the top of his cowl, for some reason. It’s a sneaky reference from Ruby Rose’s Batwoman, but it’s a great moment.
