The Arrowverse is expanding once again and this time its adding another classic DC Comics character. This time it is in the form of Kathy Kane aka Batwoman. She will be making her arrival in the next massive crossover that features all of the Arrowverse shows which include Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash and Supergirl. Kane was originally introduced in DC comics back in 1956 and was re-imagined into the “New 52”. Her character now is a Jewish lesbian which potentially means another superhero love affair for Sara Lance (played by Caity Lotz).
Arrow star Stephen Amell shared the amazing news at The CW’s upfront presentation. “We’re incredibly excited to announce that we’ll be doing another crossover event this fall on the CW, and we’ll be introducing a new character,” Amell said. “For the very first time appearing, we’ll be fighting alongside Batwoman, which is terrific. The crossover is going to make it to air in December. I need to leave right now and start filming it.”
CW boss Mark Pedowitz added. “We are adding the city of Gotham into the Arrowverse,” “This will be another full-throttled, action-packed event.”
We have constantly been teased about the arrival of Gotham City within the Arrowverse. It was referenced in Supergirl by both Kara (Supergirl) who said her cousin has worked with a guy with a lot of tech and gadgets. Also by a couple who stated “we need to go back to Gotham” In The Flash in Season one the newspaper in which they kept going to about the future stated the Wayne Tech was merging with Queen Consolidated. Also in Arrow while Oliver Queen was still mayor of Star City and being questioned at a press conference mentioned both Gotham and Bruce Wayne by name.
Are you excited for Karly Kane’s arrival and are you hoping this will lead into seeing Bruce himself? Let us know what you think in the comments.
It seems as if Star City will once again be looking for a new mayor. Paul Blackthorne who plays Mayor Quentin Lance is leaving the DC superhero show Arrow at the end of its sixth season.
Blackthorne has been with Arrow since the very beginning and become an essential part in Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) traversing Star City as both the former billionaire and superhero vigilante known as The Green Arrow. He also initially despised Oliver’s vigilante alter ego the Hood before slowly coming to work in tandem with the Emerald Archer, eventually discovering Oliver and the Green Arrow were one and the same.This will be the second series original leaving the show since Willa Holland who played Oliver’s sister, Thea Quinn earlier this season.
Quentin Lance has gone through an array of emotions throughout the show. In the first season he dealt with the loss of his daughter Sara (played by Caity Lotz) only to find out later that she was indeed alive and had become a trained assassin…only to be killed again by Thea Queen only to be resurrected once again and become a LEGEND on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. He also battled alcoholism after both Sara’s death and later on his other daughter Laurel (Katie Cassidy) at the hands of Damien Dahrk.
Arrow was just recently renewed for its seventh season. Things are being kept very tight lip as to how exactly Blackthorne’s Quentin Lance will exit the show at the end of this season.
Could the scarlet speedster become the victim of a jackhammer? This is a question we will get the answer to because the WWE’s own superhero, Goldberg will be appearing on two upcoming episodes of CW’s The Flash.
The former WWE Universal Champion confirmed this himself via his Twitter.
Goldberg is not the first WWE Superstar to grace the ARROWVERSE. After his Summer Slam encounter with Arrow’s Stephen Smell, Cody Rhodes appeared on the show as the character Stardust (a nod to his WWE persona at the time).
Does this mean that Goldberg will potentially one of the new Metahumans created by the dark matter that struck the bus as part of a grand scheme by The Thinker? Will he be an adversary for Team Flash or Will he be a new barista at Jitters?
Guess we all just have to wait and see.
Since the first CW superhero crossover, each one has gotten better and better. Last year’s Dominators storyline was solid, but the trailer for this year’s looks incredible!
Already slated to have upwards of 20 characters on-screen at a time, the 2-night, 4 show event will be covering the famed Barry-Iris wedding, one of the most famous in all of comic book history. The core story for this year revolves around an attack from the 53rd universe in the known DC world, Earth-X. Iris and Barry’s wedding is interrupted by an assault from Nazi’s and anti-heroes – including evil versions of Arrow, Flash and Supergirl, and it will take the full onslaught of CW’s full catalog, plus newcomer, The Ray, to save the day.
Supergirl kicks everything off on Monday, November 27th at it’s normal time slot, followed by a special Monday edition of Arrow. Flash and Legends will follow on Tuesday at their normal times, and we can’t wait!
We talked about how right Jay was about the return of Deathstroke and how it was going to happen, and the season 5 sizzle reel for Arrow proves it. There’s a ton of new action in the featurette, including more Black Siren, a showdown between the al-Ghul sisters and Manu Bennett, back as Slade Wilson! We’ll keep bringing you more from C2E2 all weekend!
Not just Slade Wilson, but more specifically Manu Bennett? Could this be a setup to a potentially action packed season finale of Arrow?
Stephen Amell who portrays Oliver Queen, tweeted a pic featuring the Infamous Deathstroke mask with the caption “Desperate times call for desperate measures. Welcome back @manubennett”. Could this mean that Oliver Queen will go to the A.R.G.U.S. maximum security prison on Lian Yu and recruit Slade Wilson (played by Bennett) to help him deal with the homicidal Adrian Chase/Simon Morrison/Promethius?
This season has been loaded with action and I for one would love to see Slade both suited and mirakuru’ed up.
Denizens of the CW network’s Arrowverse — the fictional universe that encompasses the CW television shows “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Legends of Tomorrow” and now “Supergirl” — have seen a lot in their time, but nothing quite like Kara Zor-El, Supergirl. The network is planning a massive crossover event for this fall, though, so some viewers are naturally curious about how the only bonafide alien in the crew is going to be received.
According to a report from Entertainment Weekly, Supergirl — the orphan Kryptonian played by Melissa Benoist — is greeted with a mix of intrigue and uncertainty by her peers. And then she starts flying around.
“Some people, like Barry [Grant Gustin], already know her, so Barry’s completely cool with her,” said “Supergirl” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “Some people are instantly charmed by her; I think Sara’s [Caity Lotz] got a little crush on her. Diggle [David Ramsey], as always, just when he thinks he’s seen it all, there’s a moment in it where somebody says, ‘This is Supergirl,’ and they say, ‘What’s so super about her?’ and she just lifts off the ground. Dig’s like, ‘I’m convinced.’”
Despite “Supergirl” only recently making the jump from CBS to the CW, the character is already a known quantity to some in the Arrowverse. Last year Grant Gustin, who plays the lead speedster “The Flash,” guest starred on an episode of “Supergirl.” It was Supergirl’s induction into the CW’s Arrowverse.
Details surrounding the crossover remain scarce, although it is known that the villains of the event will be the Dominators. The crossover is expected to air in December.
