"The multiverse has a way of aligning fates...It's written in the stars and in this book, or I wouldn't know that on this Earth, Clark Kent is Superman. Where I come from, that would be ridiculous. He can't see past his glasses."

This article is about the character set in the Tim Burton universe. This article only contains information relevant to the Arrowverse. For information regarding that universe, please see Bat-Signal.

A signal was used by Gotham City whenever the city needs Batman's help.


In 2019, the signal was being used, when a wave of antimatter destroyed Gotham City and the entire universe.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • In the DC comics, the Bat-Signal is a large projection lamp that casts the silhouetted shape of a bat across the sky of Gotham City. Commissioner James Gordon incorporated it as a means of contacting Batman, whenever he was needed and it was placed on the roof of the headquarters of Gotham City Police Department.
  • The symbol used for the Bat-Signal used is from Batwoman and not 1989 Batman film. Oddly enough, when Robert Wuhl appeared on Crisis Aftermath, a screenshot of Alexander Knox's scene featured the correct Batsignal.
