The TV shows of the Arrow-verse are preparing to crossover once again. This time, though, Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl aren’t content playing in their own worlds. For the next event, Elseworlds, the heroes will be bringing Batwoman and Gotham City into the fold, marking the first time that corner of the DC Universe has been worked into this particular franchise.
And from what we can see in the photos that have been released by The CW, it’s unlike anything these shows have tried before. In any other episode, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) taking on the mantle of The Flash and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) stepping in as the Green Arrow would be the most important thing to talk about. However, Elseworlds also has the aforementioned Batwoman (Ruby Rose), Superman (Tyler Hoechlin), Lois Lane (Elizabeth Bulloch), Nora Fries (Cassandra Jean Amell), The Monitor (LaMonica Garrett), and who knows what else?
The only thing going against Elseworlds is that Legends of Tomorrow is not included in the crossover. Of course, given that show’s penchant for jumping around in time and space, pinning them down is no easy feat. Still, even without the Legends, Elseworlds looks to be potentially the biggest game changer for the Arrow-verse yet.
After all, adding Batwoman–and a potential spinoff series–to the mix is no small feat. Now it’s just a matter of finding out how she will arrive and what role she’ll play with The Flash, Green Arrow, and Supergirl.
To find how it will all come together, you’ll have to tune into the three-night Elseworlds event, which will air on The CW from Sunday. December 9 through Tuesday, December 11. In the meantime, make sure to check out our looks at Flash and Green Arrow swapping costumes and Superman in a black suit.
