For years, Arrow has danced around references to the Dark Knight, a comic character seemingly forever out of reach to the CW/DC multiverse of shows. But no more — because the next crossover is heading to Gotham City, and meeting up with a familiar face: Batwoman herself.
Confirmed by Stephen Amell and CW CEO Mark Pedowitz on stage at the CW’s upfronts presentation today, this fall’s four-way crossover between Arrow, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl will take place in Gotham City. There was no confirmation on which Earth this Gotham is — Arrow recently alluded to the existence of Bruce Wayne and Gotham on its own Earth, but Supergirl has also made references acknowledging its existence on Earth-38. But we do know that at least one bat-hero will be there to meet the gang in the form of Batwoman herself.
We’ll bring you more details on the CW’s bat-tastic plans for the next DC crossover as we learn them, but get ready to gear up for a trip to Gotham this autumn!
