The latest trailer for “Elseworlds” crossover in December between The Flash, Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow seems to be a featuring a cameo appearance by the Joker.
Barry Allen tells Cisco Ramon that “Batman’s an urban legend”, a man in pink has been seen leaping over the railing of Arkham Asylum staircase while a disembodied cackle rings through the air.
Everyone wears the same pinkish-red prisoner uniform but at a bare minimum, it’s clear that next week’s episode of Arrow will make a wink-and-a-nod to The Joker.
The promo sees Cisco and Barry in Green Arrow gear as part of the crossover will show Barry and Oliver crossing paths with someone who’s definitely not Batman. They will run into none other than Batwoman, played by Ruby Rose.
Rose will be making her debut during the second episode of upcoming “Elseworlds” crossover. In that event, we see Oliver, Barry, Kara travel to Gotham to track down Arkham Doctor John Deegan.
“It’s a strange feeling to put on a suit like this that has been custom made for you knowing that it’s going to transform you into a character that does amazing things,” Rose told EW. “You feel very empowered and it just instantly changes everything you feel in that moment.”
Rose also spoke about what it means to her to reprise Batwoman, an openly gay superhero.
“The fact that she is an outwardly gay superhero, which is something growing up I would’ve loved to have seen on my TV, was a big deciding factor as to why I was so passionate about the role,” she said. “This [role] just meant a lot more to me because I could relate in so many ways and, at the same time, felt like this was a job that would give me a purpose every day coming into work beyond just getting to live my dream, which is acting, and would be far more rewarding than anything I’ve done in the past.”
