- "Photos can be doctored. They could have put Bruce Wayne's head on that body. Has Bruce Wayne left Gotham to hang out in Star City recently?

Amell was surprised that it made into the final cut of the episode even though the original script was supposed to have him say another famous individual. Amell originally reached out to Greg Berlanti about getting a Batman reference on the show. Berlanti then suggested that he should get permission from current DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns. It was only during a conversation at the 2017 DC Comics’ Comic-Con meeting in San Diego between Amell, Johns, Warner Bros. Entertainment CEO Kevin Tsujihara, Warner Bros. Television President Peter Roth, and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment President Diane Nelson that Tsujihara finally gave the permission to the Johns, Berlanti and eventually, to Stephen.
