Batwoman and the rest of the Arrowverse (except DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) will be hitting our screens this December, The CW have announced.
The annual crossover event, which will introduce Ruby Rose as Kate Kane/Batwoman, will see the casts of Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl reunite once more for a special three-night adventure set to take the heroes to the streets of Gotham City.
Beginning with The Flash on December 9th, the trilogy continues with Arrow on December 10th, and finally Supergirl on December 11th, as announced in the graphic below:
While this year’s crossover will see the addition of Rose’s Batwoman, we still don’t know how her heroine will feature and for how much of the crossover she will be present. But, if Kate Kane proves to be a hit with fans, Rose could well be headlining her own series on The CW next year.
Another exciting development which has been revealed is that this three-night crossover will also see the return of Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman, and the introduction of his love interest and fellow Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane, which has yet to be cast.
Supergirl executive producers Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner said in a statement, “We couldn’t be more excited to introduce Lois Lane to the Arrowverse. This dogged, determined and brave reporter will make for a strong partner to Superman and amazing addition to our universe of DC characters.”
For his part, Flash actor Grant Gustin expressed his excitement at the continued development and expansion of the crossover to EW, “To see Flash and Superman together and to be one of the guys in the suits is something I’m definitely pretty excited about. It did feel like something they would always save for the features, to be honest. But I feel like the Arrowverse has kind of been changing that stigma with the whole TV is the lesser medium. I think it kind of doesn’t matter these days with the streaming and content’s kind of everywhere. So, it is cool to see us kind of rise to even another level and bring all of us together for these crossovers. It’s pretty epic.”
The Flash returns on October 9th, Supergirl returns on October 14th, and Arrow returns on October 15th.
