A couple of weeks ago saw a rumor hit that suggested both Constantine and Batman would be a part of the CW DC TV universe.

Now EP Greg Berlanti is stating that's not the case.

At the Television Critics Association press tour, Berlanti said, "We haven't had any conversations with them about Constantine. Constantine exists in a certain place in the DC world and universe. They're kind of internally examining what they want to do with that character next."

Berlanti mentioning they are internally examining what they are going to do with Constantine may suggest the character could be featured in the DC movies.

Regarding Batman on the CW, Berlanti shot down the rumors of using Batman, Batwoman and Oracle, and said they are "completely baseless."

Berlanti said there are currently no plans to include Batman characters in Arrow, Supergirl or any of the Arrowverse shows.

The original rumor mentioned that Fox owned the Batman rights and would have to share the Batman rights for a fee, so it's possible Fox may have scoffed at the idea.
