Despite its humble beginnings, The CW's Arrowverse has become a powerhouse of modern superhero entertainment. Starting as a simple platform to tell Oliver Queen's (Stephen Amell) grounded crime drama, the network has slowly branched out and introduced major DC icons like Barry Allen a.k.a The Flash (Grant Gustin), Ray Palmer a.k.a The Atom (Brandon Routh), and many more are on the way from all eras of the comcis. However, for all the progress that the Arrowverse has made in recent years, there's still one major character that has remained decidedly absent from the modern lore: Bruce Wayne.

It's not hard to understand why The CW has steered clear of the endlessly popular Bruce Wayne (and his alter ego) for so long, but we think it's finally time for all agreements to be made to bring him into the fold. We've compiled a list of reasons why the Arrowverse should finally embrace Gotham's favorite billionaire playboy, and give him a proper introduction.

We've seen Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) face off against Ra's Al Ghul (Matt Nable) on top of a mountain without a shirt on. We've watched The Arrow do battle with the Clock King, as well as The Dollmaker. We've even picked up on references to Nightwing's home in Bludhaven, the existence of Barbara Gordon a.k.a Oracle, and The Joker's girlfriend, Harley Quinn. These are just a few examples of how The CW has teased Bat fans for the better part of four years. Arrow has danced around the idea of Bruce Wayne, Batman, and Gotham City long enough, and after four whole seasons we're ready for concrete confirmation of the existence of Gotham's favorite son, and DC's most popular character.
