So What’s The Hype About
All Arrowverse and Supernatural fans got hyped up after Jensen Ackles made an unexpected appearance on the sets of Elseworlds crossover over. While many die-hard fans hoped that Ackles would be appearing in the event, alongside The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl, this isn’t the case. Arrow Star Stephen Amell took to social media after Ackles’ photo surfaced on the internet to clear up the confusion surrounding the film, letting everyone know that it was just a friendly visit.
Let me squash this rumor right now. @JensenAckles was on set tonight because he’s Grant Gustin’s #2 fan (I’m #1) and not because he’s playing The Batman.

“Let me squash this rumor right now,” Amell wrote in the tweet. “[Jensen Ackles] was on set tonight because he’s Grant Gustin’s #2 fan (I’m #1) and not because he’s playing The Batman.”
Batman Not To Appear In Elseworlds
Batman will not be appearing in Elseworlds, although Ruby Rose’s Batwoman will make her Arrowverse debut in Elseworlds. So it’s clear that Ackles won’t be joining the Arrowverse anytime soon, not as Batman or any other character, although we wish that were true.
The hype surrounding Ackles began on Thursday after a user named scoobykoo posted a selfie with the Supernatural star on his Instagram account with a caption, “I kid you not, Supernatural’s Jensen Ackles was just hanging out at The Flash Elseworlds set chatting with Grant and Stephen.”
However, there is still a lot to be excited about. In a recent Facebook Live video, Amell revealed that this crossover will be the best till date.
“The crossover is freaking bananas. It’s crazy… I think that this will be the best crossover event that we do. And not just the best but the best by a really, really wide margin. And I think that last year was fantastic,” Amell told his fans.
“Crisis on Earth X, I think that’s what it was called, that was pretty crazy and getting to play doppelgängers was pretty crazy,” he said. “When Greg Berlanti first talked to me about why he wanted to do crossovers, it was because it’s for the fans. It’s so people can watch characters and scenarios that combine their favorite things on TV or introduce them to new things on TV. But you also get this license to do things that we could never do in the vacuum — especially on Arrow — that we can never do in the vacuum of just our show.”
