Oliver Name-Drops Bruce Wayne In Arrow Season 6 Clip

Contains spoilers for the Arrow season 6 premiere

Batman officially exists in the Arrowverse. Well, Bruce Wayne does, at least.

There have been previous references to Wayne and Gotham City on The Flash and Supergirl, but a new clip (below) from this week's Arrow calls out Wayne by name. 

After the events of last week's episode, "Fallout," the people of Star City begin to suspect that mayor Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is actually the Green Arrow. But in the upcoming episode, "Tribute," Oliver denies it during a press conference. 

"Photos can be doctored," he says. "They could've put Bruce Wayne's head on that body. Has Bruce Wayne left Gotham to hang out in Star City recently?"

Of course, Batman reportedly can't appear in the Arrowverse, but there's apparently no rule against mentioning him. In the first episode of The Flash, we see a newspaper with "Wayne Tech" in the headline, and in the second season of Supergirl, there were references to Gotham City and the vigilante that Superman knows. Arrow has also featured other characters from Batman comics including Ra's al Ghul. 

It's pretty unlikely that the Caped Crusader will actually show up on Arrow, but it's fun to dream.
