Is Batman and Gotham City In Play For The CW Universe?


With Supergirl season 2 returning next Monday (and making its debut on The CW) and officially being a part of the “Arrowverse,” producers recently released another new trailer for the upcoming season premiere showing Kara in action with her famous cousin Superman.

The official synopsis for the season premiere episode titled “The Adventures of Supergirl” are as follows.

When a new threat emerges in National City, Kara/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) teams up with her cousin, Clark Kent/Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin), to stop it. Kara is thrilled to have family in town but it leaves Alex (Chyler Leigh) feeling a bit left out. Meanwhile, Hank (David Harewood) and Supergirl are stunned by the pod that came crashing to Earth.

Take a look at the trailer:

Towards the end of the episode, there is a little Easter Egg where a bystander mentions “We’re moving back to Gotham” as in Gotham City, home of Batman. Current everything Batman related is happening on the Fox show, Gotham. With this casual reference to Gotham City, this has led fans to speculate if everything Batman related might potentially be able to be a part of the DC CW universe. Supergirl executive producer was asked about the reference and weather this means that the Caped Crusader might be dropping by any of the CW shows.

“I feel like we have our hands full with the crossover we’re shooting right now. I think people will be satisfied with how much crossover they’re getting this season. We have this beautiful history with DC, and I like that we get to borrow from this amazing, wonderful canon that we have.”

While this isn’t a yes, it isn’t a no either. Let’s keep in mind that we didn’t think that we would have Superman on Supergirl and that’s coming to fruition. And there also has been another Easter egg that was slyly in the background last season of Supergirl where the television show “Gordon and Jim” was seen in the background of Cat Grant’s television monitor during the “Red Faced” episode.


All these references can’t be coincidence, right?
