Wonder Woman and Robin were name dropped in Ruby Rose’s Batwoman.
The most interesting thing about the Arrowverse shows is that there are a multitude of superheroes in it that come and go. Ruby Rose’s Batwoman is the latest show in the Arrowverse and it focuses on Kate Kane, who is the cousin of Bruce Wayne. Ruby Rose’s Batwoman is a unique show in that it operates within the context of Batman’s world but it also has to separate itself from it. During the second episode of Ruby Rose’s Batwoman, Kate Kane name dropped two iconic heroes who are frequently seen with Batman. During the episode, Ruby Rose’s Batwoman name-dropped Wonder Woman and Robin, who are now canonized in the Arrowverse.
In the episode, Ruby Rose’s Batwoman is saving Sophie, her friend. Afterwards, Sophie asks Kate if she was wearing the Batsuit. Kate throws off the question by suggesting that if she were to save Sophie, she would do so in a dramatic fashion like Wonder Woman. While there isn’t any photographic evidence that shows us what Wonder Woman looks like, she’s probably wearing her normal outfit. By bringing up Wonder Woman, we can also imagine that the Amazons are out there in the Arrowverse, which would be very interesting to see further developed in the future.
Once again in the episode, Robin was name-dropped. With Kate wearing the Batsuit in public, many speculated that Batman was back as he has been absent for years. Speculation of Batman’s whereabouts continued to rise as a truck fell off a bridge but Batman was nowhere to be found. In reality, Batwoman was there but just under the water. Later, Vesper brought up where Batman was and suggested that he was probably at Robin’s high-school gradation.
So, with that being said, we are now more than privy to the fact that Robin and Wonder Woman exist within the Arrowverse. This makes us wonder if Robin and Wonder Woman will show up in a limited capacity in the upcoming Crisis On Infinite Earths. Obviously, we’ll be seeing an alternate Earth version of Batman in the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths, and it would be interesting to see him respond to Ruby Rose’s Batwoman as the two are cousins.
