About halfway through the just-released teaser for March 19th’s Arrow episode, titled “Suicide Squad,” fans can get their first look at a mysterious, disheveled female character who seems like she might be the Batman villain Harley Quinn.
GIVE US A SUICIDE SQUAD SHOW!
We've already had Bludhaven, and if this turns out to be Harley Quinn then surely Batman must exist in the Arrow-verse.
If the Flash exist in the Arrow-verse, then you know just about everyone else exist also.
I wouldn't be surprised. Seems like Arrow's trying to set up its own DC universe parallel to Superman Vs. Batman's. Will probably turn out better at that.
Hopefully would be great xD
Smallville had a multitude of DC stars (except Batman), so Arrow should be the same. I'm not sure why Batman never featured, although I think Gotham might have been mentioned once.
There was a stupid Bat-Mebargo WB laid on smallville and almost anything DC related (including the Justice Legaue cartoon save for Batman himself), meaning they werent allowed to use Batman or anything related to him. That was due to Nolan's films being made, reserving the rights to the Batverse character for his films only. Now that the films are finished and the embargo lifted, its possible for Batman to appear in Arrow, or to meld Gotham into the show in some form, as is highly rumoured with Harley Quinn and Nightwing.
