Batwoman Hints At The Villain Who Killed Bruce Wayne

Batwoman’s entry into the Arrowverse brought a lot of questions with it. But the most important one was-where was Bruce Wayne? The show says that Bruce Wayne disappeared from Gotham City half a decade ago and nobody knows what happened, not even his cousin Kate Kane. But the new episode of Batwoman might have given us a clue in regards to what happened to him. He might have been killed by a villain. But this villain certainly isn’t on the lowest rung of his rogues gallery.

Episode 1×07, titled, “Tell Me The Truth,” revealed that Lucius Fox, Luke’s father and Batman’s trusted ally, was murdered. But the culprit was never caught, contrary to what everyone believed. Instead the convicted person turned out to be someone who was innocent. He was wrongfully convicted by a corrupt group of judges. But now the show might have given us a clue in regards to the person who was actually behind this. That person is a minor character from the comics with ties to the biggest crime boss in Gotham City. It is Carmine “The Roman” Falcone.

Falcone Killed Robin And Oracle Too

In the Arrowverse, Gotham’s chief of police isn’t Commissioner Gordon but Commissioner Forbes. In the comics, Forbes was a puppet of Falcone’s who took over when the gangster framed Jim Gordon for causing a disaster. Given this premise, it’s possible that Lucius’s murder wasn’t an isolated case and Falcone is actually behind it. Along with this, he might also be responsible for the disappearance of Batman as well as the rest of the Bat-family. After all, if Falcone targeted Fox then he must have found out that Wayne Enterprises was funding the Batman. This could mean that he might have worked out that it was Bruce Wayne who was behind the mask. As such, it’s possible that he might have succeeded in killing Bruce five years ago. But there’s more. The show has also hinted that Robin and Oracle once existed in the Arrowverse, yet they aren’t operating in Gotham anymore. So, maybe Falcone killed Batman’s sidekicks, too.

While Batman did get the upper-hand over Falcone in the comics but Batwoman’s Gotham is way darker so this theory does make sense.

But this is just a theory till it gets officially confirmed by the show. Check out the other Batman theories in the video below:
