@HollowedIchigo It's probably fine to believe they're alive, since the script never really directly references their status. It's also as valid to assume every implication said so far indicates they're likely dead.
The idea being because neither answer has been given, neither answer is right nor wrong. How you feel about how others feel about Bright and Butter or any other story element shouldn't necessarily matter to you.
There are a number of good story ideas about Applejack as Bruce Wayne, but to be honest, having a major plot twist making it so they've turned out to alive, either missing or kidnapped or dead for reals but replaced by their other selves from a parallel reality, would be interesting if the right writer(s) was tasked to devise a script incorporating such a twist…
@HollowedIchigo No, no they're not, you come in here, dick, or rather opinion but that's neither here nor there, shouting "Oh boy, it's a good thing the Apples are alive, am I right?", and then when everyone rightly asks what the fuck you're talking about, you just go "Nah mate, they're alive, it's a red herring, I know what I'm talking about", then bitch about when people try and tell you the obvious. You don't get to bitch about getting hit when you throw the first punch.
