A surprise announcement came this morning at The CW's upfront presentation in NY that this year's Arrowverse crossover will feature Batwoman - note that it's not Batgirl, but rather the "Kate Kane" version introduced in the 52 comic book series in 2005 - and Gotham City will also be introduced to the Arrowverse story!
Batwoman is set to finally join the Arrowverse during this year's four-way crossover event, which will be spread out over three consecutive nights. "We will be fighting alongside Batwoman".
We'll bring you more news from the Arrowverse as and when we get it!
Gotham will also be featured in some capacity (even if it is just by name) over the course of the crossover event.
That is definitely a question worth pondering over at the moment, especially since there are probably only so many Batman-related characters who can be used.
CW president Mark Pedowitz added to that, saying that "the city of Gotham" will also be integrated into the Arrowverse. We've heard about Bludhaven, we've heard about Wayne Enterprises, but these always just seemed like Easter Eggs and no indication that Batman or any of his allies actually existed in the Arrowverse.
Also new for The CW's annual crossover between DC Entertainment's Greg Berlanti dramas including Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow: the city of Gotham will be incorporated into the Arrow-verse, a natural extension given the introduction of Batwoman.
