The latest episode of Batwoman on The CW revealed the show’s Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne and it did come with a bit of a twist.
It’s been revealed that the actor who plays the Arrowverse’s Bruce Wayne is Warren Christie (The Resident, Chicago Fire).
Christie has been in the Arrowverse before.
He played Carter Bowne in Arrow Season 1 in the episode Legacies.
He’s now back in the Arrowverse and playing one of DC Comics’ most iconic characters, Bruce Wayne.
They finally revealed him in the latest episode of Batwoman, which is now actually Season 1’s finale due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
He was finally revealed, yet there was a bit of a twist.
Batman has been ‘revealed’ in Batwoman
Here’s what Screen Rant explained about the episode of Batwoman in which Batman was ‘revealed’:
In the final scenes of Batwoman season 1, episode 20 (which serves as the show’s season finale due to the Arrowverse production shutdowns), Alice (Rachel Skarsten) puts one of her skin masks on Tommy Elliott (Gabriel Mann), as she’s been promising in exchange for him acquiring Lucius Fox’s journal for her. But this particular mask is of Kate Kane’s famous cousin, Bruce Wayne, who fans – and Alice – know to be Batman.
So, it’s not really Batman or Bruce Wayne we’re seeing here, but it’s someone wearing a mask of him.
It might be considered a bit of a cop-out, but it does mean that we will probably get to see Batman in the show somewhere down the line.
