While not everyone was up for an April Fools' Day joke or prank in light of the coronavirus pandemic, Arrow producer Marc Guggenheim tries to make things light with a prank script he made years ago.

Guggenheim took to Twitter to share the script for the episode titled "Two-Face." It was a fake draft he made during the second season of Arrow that features a campy dialogue that's reminiscent of the classic 1966 Batman TV show.

From the voice over to the character names, it shows how different the show is compared to the Batman series. The script shows a man named Mr. Bottomham, President of the Crime-Does-Not-Pay-Well Association, who was arrested for counterfeit and that only one side of the bills are counterfeit, the other side is a genuine bill.

There are also some familiar names in the script, including Moira Queen, who's apparently knitting. As well as Roy being tutored by Oliver in economics. The script's structure and tone will definitely be recognized by the fans of the 1966 TV show.


While it is a fake script, Batman ‘66 eventually made its way to the Arrowverse in Crisis on Infinite Earths. The opening montage features Burt Ward, who played Robin in the series. The actor's clothes matched the colors and aesthetic of his Robin costume and he's seen walking a German Shepherd when he noticed something peculiar in the sky, hinting that his world, Earth-66, is about to be destroyed.

Fans can check out Ward's Arrowverse cameo again when Crisis on Infinite Earths re-airs beginning April 7.
