The CW president Mark Pedowitz has made it clear – the character of Batman will NOT be appearing on the upcoming in-development “Batwoman” TV pilot.
Batman already exists in the Arrowverse because last season Oliver Queen mentioned his name at one point, and the upcoming “Batwoman” pilot – should it go forward to series – is set in Gotham City. However, Pedowitz says: “There’s no discussion about a series… There’s no plan at this time to have Batman appear.”
The network would reportedly need to obtain permission from Warner Bros. Pictures before adding Batman to its roster. Batwoman is slated to make her screen debut during the annual crossover event of the DC shows on The CW.
If the “Batwoman” pilot is picked up, the series could air in 2019.
