He will exist but never be shown

Problematically, Batman is a special snowflake in a way that only really Wolverine rivals (I want a nickel for everywhere that overused monstrosity appears). If he shows up, he upstages everyone and everything. He's better at angst than Arrow, he's better at fighting than Arrow, he's better at gadgets than Arrow, he's better at investigation than Arrow, he's better at money than Arrow, many of Arrow's associates are part of the expanded Bat-cohort...you get the idea.

Ollie would be a sad panda.

I hope its 0.

There are other characters in the DCU other than Batman!

Exist or appear in the show? Because the former I think we've already seen hints but the latter ehhhhh.

Yep that's what I would've said, it would go to Arrow to Batman's show in a minute. Beside I still think that WB has a Batman ban on CW.

It'd probably be best if he didn't appear. I like Arrow as existing in its own universe (like Smallville). The second we try to tie it into the movie-verse or throw in a character as huge as Batman we start to stray away from the universe that the show has built so far.

@supbatz: Agreed.

I get it, Batman is awesome! That doesn't mean he has to be involved in everything DC.

Batman is omnipresent. He exists everywhere.

He ain't gonna show up though.

Which sucks, coz i'd be cool.

I think it would be lame. Besides the Bat-fanboys are all ready annoying.

I'd rather see a dozen other heroes. Wildcat is at the top of my list.

I wouldn't say lame, i think it would be pretty great, if done well of course.

Wild cat seems good, loved him in JLU

I think it would be far more likely to be lame than great. It would have to be handled very delicately.

Wildcat is awesome plus if they are gonna kill Sarah (inevitable) someone has to train Laurel. and he did so...

M'kay, but while Sera sucks as an actress, I prefer her over Laurel :P

I don't think she sucks. And yes, she's way better.

But she's gonna die. Oliver chose her over Shado and Deathstroke wants revenge. Its gonna happen.

@fallschirmjager: Come on man, she is not a good actress, she's hot but...eh...

I didn't say she was good. I said she doesn't suck.

Most of the actors on arrow aren't good, but they don't all suck either.

if you want "suck" watch the Avatar movie.

LOL, which avatar movie?:P The last airbender?

And Only Bennet is awesome on the show, the others are ok, but sera can reach suck levels at times.

yeah. Airbender. Or watch Twilight *shudder*

I agree. Manu is amazing. Amell has improved a lot. Merlyn is also solid and so was Tommy. Rest are mostly okay in their rolls, but don't see much range out of most of them.

I think Roy is easily the worst actor on the show.

Roy? He isn't great, but Sara Is worse IMO, she's hot tho :D

AND SHEEEEET I forgot Merlyn! In both seasons the best actors were the villains! and yes Amell has improved.

no way. I use to watch Teen Wolf (also bad acting) and he is basically playing the same dude in both shows.

she's hot, but Katrina Law is the hottest. and I have thing for Thea too
