Does Batman exist in the CW TV verse? The answer is Yes. There have been multiple references to the character of Batman in the different seasons. In the Flash episode when Barry goes to Earth-2 to fight Zoom, at his home’s speed-dial we see various names are mentioned, one of the names is Bruce. In the Legends of Tomorrow, Captain Hunter says “I have seen Men of Steel die and Dark Knights fall.” In Supergirl, more she said once “My cousin worked with a vigilante once – tons of gadgets, lots of demons.” But no show is closer to Batman than Arrow which has used Ra’s Al Ghul who is Batman foe in comics. Moreover, Felicity is given a code name Overwatch instead of Oracle as it’s supposedly taken.
Recently at an event Wizard World Comic Con, New Orleans, Arrow Star David Ramsey aka John Diggle explored the possibility of Batman in Arrow.
“I think for sure Bruce Wayne. I would love to see these two guys at a table together just like ‘sup Bruce’, ‘sup Oliver’. You know what I mean? And duke it out, like no utility belt, no arrows, just hand to hand, man.”
Here’s a list of actors who can really justify the role of Dark Knight on Arrow TV show:
He played Superman/Clark Kent in Smallville, he was vying for the iconic role in Supergirl but Tyler Hoechlin got the part in the end. But nonetheless, this guy is meant to play superhero and will be a great Batman if given a chance.
He has always been in awe of Batman, he said in an interview with Larry King “I did always want to play Batman. I liked Batman because he had no super powers.” He recently appeared in American Horror Story.
He doesn’t need an introduction, the guy is TV hunk who stole the hearts of millions of girls playing Richard Castle. Imagine him playing Bruce Wayne.
He is top industry talent who has got the looks and skill to pull off Batman o the small screen. He is part of a popular sci-fi show Orphan Black.
He is classy, elegant and a very matured actor who has the acting chops to portray the persona of Bruce Wayne. He played Agent Ward in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
