Batman Easter Egg in Newest ‘Supergirl’ Episode ‘City of Lost Children’

Supergirl TV Interviews dc comics news

CAUTION!! Before I get started there are some minor episode spoilers ahead. So if you don’t wanna know anything about the newest episode I suggest you stop reading now. However if you want to be spoiled or have seen the newest episode be my guest and continue reading. Here we go!


Fans have picked up a wonderful easter egg in the newest Supergirl episode. Supposedly Batman exists in the Arrowverse on Earth-38. Good ol’ Jimmy Olsen is struggling with feeling like he’s not doing any good for National City in his dark body armor. He has a brief heart-to-heart with Winn about his public perception. Olsen describes the public’s reaction as “like Clark’s friend” while Winn quips with “I think they’re more like frenemies.” The conversation is not only a jab at BvS and other comic stories with Batman and Superman  fighting but also here’s the egg: Jimmy says “like Clark’s friend” which is referring to Bruce Wayne, our very own Dark Knight. It ruins the joke, but Jimmy would obviously know better than Winn about Brucey.

Now you want to listen more closely to the episode eh?

In the latest episode, when an alien attacks National City, Supergirl and the DEO learn the alien is a Phorian, a powerful race with telekinetic powers. Guardian gets a lead on the Phorian’s whereabouts but instead finds a scared boy named Marcus. Marcus will only trust Jimmy so it’s up to Guardian to stop the Phorian’s attacks. Rhea’s plan also escalates.

Supergirl’s episode “City of Lost Children” aired Monday, May 8th at 8pm EST/PST.

Hi! I'm Shaina aka the Jokergurl. I've been studying comics (namely Batman) since I was 12 years old, and possibly even before that. My forte is being up on absolutely everything there is to know about the Caped Crusader, and both the Clown Prince and Princess of Crime. I recently graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with an MA in English and Creative Writing. Currently I am earning my MFA at National University. I have 5 cats and 2 dogs, and spend what free time I have doing whatever (mostly Pokémon GO). Have a happy!
