The Batman offered a set visit to select press the past few days and even permitted them to take photos to share with the world. This new film will be set in its own universe, separate from the world of Ben Affleck’s Batman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. However, that doesn’t mean that parallel characters for all of our favorite superheroes don’t exist in this realm.
Set photos tease that the likes of Superman, Wonder Woman and Flash exist. Exterior shots have been filming in Chicago this past week and we’re getting more information about the wold of The Batman.
The below photo shared on social media by Jake Hamilton reveals what appears to be a Flash logo on it. However, if you look closer, you can see that there are references to two of Gotham’s worst criminals on display, too. Namely, Anarky and Mr. Freeze.
The poster reads “STAB OUT THE EYE – DESTROY GOTHCORP.” The stylized ‘A’ in the word ‘STAB’ is lifted from the symbol worn by Anarky in the comics. What’s more, the company they wish to destroy, GothCorp, comes from Batman: The Animated Series. It appeared in acclaimed episode “Heart of Ice,” which told the origin story of Victor Fries.
Wait — is the THE FLASH logo on the Chicago set of THE BATMAN?! pic.twitter.com/p2pRpBv6kn
