Warning: SPOILERS for the Batwoman Season 1 finale are forward!

The Arrowverse has been naming dropping Bruce Wayne for years, and we even met an older model of him from one other universe within the Disaster on Infinite Universe crossover occasion, performed by none aside from Batman: The Animated Sequence’ Kevin Conroy. Nicely, tonight within the Batwoman Season 1 finale, we lastly received our first glimpse of what Earth-Prime’s Bruce appears to be like like, with Alphas actor Warren Christie being introduced in. Solely we didn’t really meet Bruce within the episode, however see somebody who now boasts his likeness.

Throughout Batwoman’s inaugural season, antagonists Alice and Mouse have steadily disguised themselves utilizing different folks’s faces, a trick discovered from Mouse’s treacherous father, the late August Cartwright. Nicely, when Tommy Elliot, a.okay.a. Hush, allied himself with these two, he demanded a brand new face in trade, leading to his outdated visage being lower off and him rocking the bandaged appear like his comedian guide counterpart. Alice lastly gave Hush his new face within the Season 1 finale, a.okay.a.  “O, Mouse,” nevertheless it was to not his liking, to place it frivolously, and he demanded that she provide him with a brand new one.

Whereas Mouse scoffed on the thought, Alice nonetheless wanted Hush for her plans, so she agreed to his forceful request. Because the episode progressed, Alice discovered that the kryptonite needs (it’s the one substance that may penetrate the Batsuit) is situated inside Wayne Tower, a spot one can’t steal from on a whim. Determined to hold out her revenge towards Kate Kane, Alice poisoned Mouse after he threatened to depart her as a result of she was so obsessive about vengeance. And whereas she grieved for the lack of her adoptive brother, she didn’t wait lengthy to hold out the following section of her agenda.

Reduce to the top of “O, Mouse,” which noticed Alice designing Tommy Elliot’s new face, and positive sufficient, he now appears to be like like Bruce Wayne, Tommy former childhood greatest pal who he’s grow to be obsessive about. Due to his new look, Alice believes it must be simple sufficient for Tommy to stroll into Wayne Tower, take the kryptonite and produce it again to her. Judging by the smile on his face (as seen under), Tommy is all too desperate to go together with this.

There’s a precedent for Hush trying like Bruce Wayne, as within the comics, Tommy Elliot carried out cosmetic surgery on his face to disguise himself because the Gotham Metropolis playboy in his ongoing effort to torment Batman. Now we get to see Tommy Elliot wreak related havoc on Batman, with Warren Christie taking up the position from Revenge’s Gabriel Mann. It’s price noting that Christie already has a bit of Arrowverse expertise below his belt, as he appeared as Carter Bowen in Arrow Season 1.

Like so many TV reveals this season, Batwoman needed to finish a bit of abruptly as a result of present well being disaster, leading to Season 1’s remaining two episodes not being filmed. So we’ll have to attend till Batwoman Season 2 debuts in early 2021 to see how Tommy Elliot trying like Bruce Wayne will particularly ship waves throughout the present. Nonetheless, Batwoman showrunner Carolie Dries did tease TV Line with the next about what we are able to anticipate:

Nicely, there couldn’t have been a greater particular person to impersonate Bruce. He’s going to have ‘the Bruce Wayne expertise’ — he’s not going to waste a second of his new life-style. However he’ll face apparent obstacles as a result of the folks Bruce surrounds himself with are crafty and sensible, and so they’ve seen antics like this earlier than. Their guards might be up.

Making an allowance for how effectively Kate Kane and Luke Fox know Bruce Wayne, to not point out that it is a world the place all kinds of shapeshifters and folks well-versed within the artwork of disguises are working about, it is sensible that our intrepid protagonists will ultimately work out this isn’t the actually Bruce. Nonetheless, Tommy is aware of Bruce effectively sufficient too, so it’s simple sufficient to think about him profiting from Bruce’s huge assets and fooling Gotham Metropolis’s normal inhabitants.

Nonetheless, don’t assume this implies we’ve seen the final of OG Tommy Elliot, i.e. the one performed by Gabriel Mann. Warren Christie could also be respiratory life into the character for the foreseeable future, however Caroline Dries indicated that the door’s not closed on doubtlessly bringing Mann again down the road. As she put it:

Not essentially. Nope. He’s so enjoyable to work with…. I don’t have something actually in my thoughts deliberate, however once you meet a great actor, you discover a solution to hold working with them.

In fact, Warren Christie being solid as a Bruce Wayne-looking Tommy Elliot additionally implies that he also can play the actual Bruce Wayne ought to Batwoman, or any of the Arrowverse reveals, resolve to carry him in. As issues stand now, Bruce has been lacking for years, and alongside along with his whereabouts being unknown, we nonetheless don’t know why he vanished, although it might need one thing to do with the sturdy implication that he killed The Joker.

Regardless, a minimum of now we lastly know what this universe’s Bruce Wayne appears to be like like, thus bringing us one step nearer to doubtlessly assembly him within the coming years. Contemplating that the Arrowverse proudly options DC A-listers like Superman, The Flash and Martian Manhunter, it’d be good if Bruce may be part of that lineup. It’d be even bette if he received to go well with up as Batman, one thing Titans’ model hasn’t been seen doing but and Gotham’s model solely did within the sequence finale. That could be a pipe dream contemplating how specific Warner Bros and DC may be with the character being depicted on the small display screen, however hey, a fan can dream, proper?

For now although, Kate Kane and the gang have sufficient to maintain them busy. Not solely is Tommy Elliot trying like Bruce Wayne going to trigger hassle, however Kate’s father, Jacob Kane, has declared all-out battle on Batman, to the purpose that he and his Crows operatives tried to gun her down within the Season 1 finale. We additionally not too long ago discovered that Julia Pennyworth has lower ties with crime boss Safiyah Sohail, who is aware of Kate Kane is Batwoman, and Caroline Dries confirmed she might be a major villain in Batwoman Season 2.

Batwoman airs Sunday nights at Eight p.m. EST on The CW. Keep tuned to CinemaBlend for any main information regarding Season 2, however for now, hold monitor of what’s at the moment airing with our useful TV schedule.
