Arrow The star Stephen Amell has knocked down the rumor that Supernatural the leader Jensen Ackles is playing Batman in the Arrowverse. Amell is currently in the middle of filming the Arrowverse 2018 cross-over event "Elseworlds," which will bring three of the DC TV series from The CW (Arrow, The flashY Supergirl) together to participate in a three-part story. "Elseworlds" will also introduce Tyler Hoechlin's Superman in his famous black suit and present Ruby Rose as Katherine Kane, also known. Batwoman to the Arrowverse before her solo series opens in 2019, among other things.
Seeing that "Elseworlds" will mark the first time the Arrowverse will visit Gotham City, many fans have wondered if that means that the Caped Crusader will also make an appearance (albeit briefly) during the crossing. Arrow Y Supergirl both have included open references to Bruce Wayne's alter ego in recent memory and, just this week, Amell, once again, refused to rule out the possibility that Batman will appear on Arrowverse, someday. Anyway, Amell took a short break from the filming and / or promotion of "Elseworlds" to rule out at least one persistent rumor related to Caped Crusader.

Dean Winchester himself has just visited the set "Elseworlds", which immediately sent many fans to the Batman conspiracy theory mode. As such, Amell took his Twitter account to shed some light on Ackles' visit to the crossover series and explain what it was do not There are for
It is worth noting that it is very unlikely that the Batman character makes his debut on Arrowverse during "Elseworlds", since Batwoman is already confirmed to do its Great entry during the television event. Most likely, if the character ever appears in the DC universe of The CW, it will be off the line, long after Rose's Katherine Kane is well established and her own series is fully operational. After all, Hoechlin as Superman did not appear on the Arrowverse until SupergirlPremiere of Season 2 and has only been an occasional guest star on the show since then. It is logical that the Batwoman television series (or any Arrowverse show, by the way) will adopt a similar approach to incorporate Batman – again, assuming it is ever presented, much less referenced again during "Elseworlds".
As for Ackles: as much as many (most?) Of his fans would love to see him put on his cloak and hood, he seems quite comfortable focusing his time and energy on Supernatural At the time. The series has just started its fourteenth season and may return for season 15 within a year, the way the fans' favorite show keeps moving forward. One should never say never, of course, but if the actor ends up playing Batman … well, it probably is not as long as Oliver Queen and Barry Allen change their identity in "Elseworlds".
