Now, in the past, it was heavily speculated, if not outright confirmed, that DC and Warner Bros. deemed certain characters off-limits for certain projects to avoid what they perceived as audience confusion. But, the reigns have definitely seemed to loosen as of late, with top brass at both DC and Warner Bros. making mention of the fact that they no longer have such restrictions in place.
A new official promo dares to ask the cast of Superman & Lois which heroes from the DC pantheon of characters they’d like to team up with on the show.
Bitsie Tulloch expressed her desire to see Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl and Javicia Leslie’s Batwoman appear on the series, while Alexander Garfin alluded to J’onn J’onzz, aka Martian Manhunter, and Lois Lane as a team-up he’d enjoy seeing.
However, Jordan Elsass, Hoechlin, and Garfin all made sure to mention The Dark Knight himself, Batman.
And, really, the proof is right there in front of the viewer: Superman getting his own series is a huge indication that the barriers between film and TV are being broken at DC. After all, he already has a big-screen interpretation in the form of Henry Cavill.
