‘Supergirl’: Another Batman Easter Egg Dropped In Tonight’s Episode

supergirl-batman[DISCLAIMER: This article features a spoiler from tonight’s episode of Supergirl – Episode 7, Season 2 titled “The Darkest Place”]

At the beginning of the season two for Supergirl, the famous DC city, Gotham City was referenced in one of the earlier episodes when Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) was visiting National City. With Gotham City officially existing on Kara’s Earth, and supposedly Earth-1 with the other CW heroes, could Batman himself possibly exist in the DC TV Universe?

Well, after tonight’s episode, it seems that the chances are very strong. During a conversation about vigilantes, Kara references her cousin having worked with a brooding vigilante before as she says the following:

“My cousin worked with a vigilante once. Tons of gadgets, lots of demons.”

Knowing the World’s Finest, it’s most likely the Caped Crusader that Kara was mentioning, meaning that Batman exists and is active in the DC TV Universe. Whether this means that we will see The Dark Knight on any of The CW shows in the near future remains a mystery. Currently over at FOX, Gotham is exploring Bruce Wayne’s teenage years while also seeing the rise of his many future villains.

Although, now that Superman has been allowed to be on television since Geoff Johns become the co-head of DC Films, maybe we could see Batman on television in the future. Never say never because a year ago, everyone thought it was impossible that the Man of Steel could be on television and look where we are now. At least they can do the references to the iconic detective every once in a while.

Would you like to see Batman appear on any of the other CW DC TV shows? Sound off in the comments below and make sure to check out our review of tonight’s episode of Supergirl.

Supergirl Season 2 airs on Monday nights at 8/7c on The CW. Make sure to check back at Heroic Hollywood after every single episode of Season 2 for our weekly reviews.

    The DCTV restrictions are pretty silly, so I hope he does makes an apperance, along with Green Lantern, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman one day, really don’t think it would have any impact on the movie box office

  • razorstar90

    Just allow them full access to the DC library. There’s no reason not to considering Superman is on the show now too.

  • SAMURAI36

    I’ve never really understood why people want the big 7 on TV. I view the DC Universe on a tiered level. The top characters belong strictly in the movies, where as the mid tier characters are more for TV.

    But that’s just me.

    • Darthmanwe

      If the biggest of them all, Flash, can exist on TV, so can the others.

      • SAMURAI36

        LOL, I wouldn’t call Flash the biggest, but okay.

      • SAMURAI36

        Also, the beauty about the Flash, is that it can be more than one person, unlike Batman, Superman or WW. It would have been nothing for them to put Wally in the DCEU instead of Barry (which I’m still really surprised that they didn’t do), and it wouldn’t conflict with Barry on the show.

      ‘Cause Batman is awesome. :)

      DC’s main 7 are too iconic for TV.

      That said, if they were on Netflix where you’d get the scope the characters’ deserve while also having the time to really get into the characters and story, I could get with that.

      Not saying more is necessarily better and it would massively depend on the show runner but I’d love to be able to focus on a pre-explosion Krypton for an episode or two. Or outright do a cosmic crime show around Green Lantern.

      • SAMURAI36

        I do somewhat agree, that a story like the GLC could do well as its own show, moreso on HBO than Netflix. That way, the massive story could be told episodically, rather than crammed as a trilogy.

        • 32-44-33-34-24

          Why HBO over Netflix?

          • SAMURAI36

            1) Because HBO has an unrelenting track record of Award winning shows.
            2) Because HBO would be considered “in house” of sorts for DCTV shows. No need to go elsewhere, especially if the rumors are true, that Disney might be buying Netflix.

  • Darthmanwe

    Berlanti is going to needle and gnaw with these references until they let him use Batman and Green Lantern proper.

    The man is relentless.

  • GDog

    What a terrible line, this is exactly the reason why the CW doesn’t deserve Batman

      Terrible line? How was it terrible? It wasn’t. It was a perfect line. And an accurate line. Batman is a vigilante. He has tons of gadgets. And lots of demons. You are just a sad pathetic loser who will be to afraid to respond with an intelligent response.

  • In first chapter of The flash, there was a Batman comic, I hope they don’t forget about that if they ever get Batman in the TV universe

  • Jason Scarpelli

    At least the term “Easter egg” has been used correctly for this
