My 2 cents is get rid of the entire cast and make Ollie(only) part of the Legends of Tomorrow. No kids, no Team Arrow, no Felicity, would probably be much better

It wont be Superman - we've already met him. Batman may be a possibility however.

I wasn't aware it was a fun announcement either, I thought it just was an announcement. If it's a fun one, then it isn't going to be cancellation; it'll likely relate to a crossover event or cameo (Batman).

If it is a crossover event though, I can't emphasise enough that the writers need to reduce the character limit. As great as the idea may be, do we really need the entirety of each and every show in the same story? I feel it's too much - and it certainly shows. I haven't particularly favoured any of the big crossovers, and instead much prefer the smaller ones between two shows.

It may pay off, though aren't there plans for a DCEU Birds of Prey? It's unlikely they'd do a DCTV version of them at the same time.

Not sure how they'd do it (for the small screen) either, seeing as Black Canary is dead, and Black Siren certainly can't fill that role. I wouldn't bet them allowing Harley Quinn on the small screen either - she's too big a cinematic character.

I think, once Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, Black Lightning or Legends wraps up (whichever one wraps up first) they'll likely (at least think about) introducing a new superhero show.

The Teen Titans have been mentioned, though (per Black Lightning) that's rumoured to be taking part in it's own little bubble, and not (yet) connected to the Arrowverse.

For all it's faults, Arrow is, I think, a strong show with some good groundwork. Flash has, for me, been struggling as of late, and (unless I'm mistaken) ratings have fallen because of it. Arrow is the show that's naturally expected to wrap up first - because it was the first to air, but I wouldn't be surprised if Flash, or even Legends wrapped up before Arrow did.

Hopefully, if that ever is the case, they can keep many of the characters around. Worse case scenario, we can always have a TV version of the Justice League; 10-15 hour long episodes per year?
  • Oliver Queen (Arrow - standing in for Batman as the financer and strategist)
  • Barry Allen (Flash)
  • Ray Palmer (Atom - maybe as the Cyborg alternative)
  • Kendra (Hawkgirl - recast, and as the stand-in for the small screen Wonder Woman)

Cisco/Felicity/Curtis as the tech guys, alongside Wells. Could always have a rotating cast of actual heroes; maybe mix the remaining slots up between Nate, Killer Frost, maybe another version of Firestorm?

I've left Supergirl & Black Lightning out because of the different earths they reside on, though there'd be nothing to stop them from lending a hand occasionally.

stephen was recently pitched the crossover story and he said that he's as excited for the crossover as he was back when they pitched him the introduction of barry allen. he also said we would be hearing about the crossover soon. i'm guessing that's what the fun announcement will be.

Surely the only thing more exciting than Barry Allen at this point, is Bruce Wayne? It's been a long time coming if this is the case though, however it would certainly be a welcome addition to the Arrowverse.

Short of Wonder Woman, Aquaman & Cyborg, Batman is the only main JL member we've not yet seen, and he's obviously more desired than either of the former. The question though, is whether it'll be Earth-1 Bruce Wayne, or Earth 34 (that's Kara's Earth, right?) Bruce Wayne. I'm not quite convinced they'll give us Wonder Woman as I feel that persona has been fulfilled by Supergirl (as far as the DCTV goes).

Other fun options:
  • Crossover with Black Lightning
  • Introduction of Teen Titans (within Arrowverse)
  • Introduction of another DC character; Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood (basically, anyone that has backstory from Gotham)

Could the announcement be that it's coming to the dc streaming service?

Titans is on the DC streaming service, so I don't think CW will get that.

Looks like the announcement is that Batwoman is coming. I'm genuinely curious how they'll introduce Gotham City proper and how they'll differentiate it from Gotham which, being a prequel show, probably wouldn't introduce Batwoman anyway, so it's probably fair game.

The CW will host another superhero crossover event this fall, but this time they’ll be introducing the character of Batwoman into the fold.

Arrow star Stephen Amell made the announcement at The CW’s upfront presentation on Thursday. “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.”

“We are adding the city of Gotham into the Arrowverse,” CW boss Mark Pedowitz added. “This will be another full-throttled action packed event.”

So, Batman definitely exists in the Arrowverse then...

This could get a bit silly, especially given how much Arrow has stolen from Batman over the years. But, I’m interested in seeing how they handle it.

Batman is going to cast a very long shadow over the whole Arrowverse from now on.

Question is... are they going to have Kate come from the same universe? Or will there be some more multiverse shenanigans going on?

They are probably allowed to use Batman characters due to Gotham ending next year.

Very possible Arrow ends too, and they replace it with a Batwoman show. Arrow's actors signed seven year deals so it makes sense. For the show to continue, WB would have to sign everyone to more expensive contracts. Not impossible (they do it every year for Supernatural) but probably cheaper to replace it with a new DC show.

I love Batwoman, so I'm down for this.

Sounds like it won't be multiverse-related. Gotham exists in the Arrow-verse, and it has already been mentioned/hinted at before.

I doubt the Batwoman news has anything to do with Gotham ending. This would have to have been in the works for awhile now since crossovers no doubt take a lot of planning, and we only just recently found out about Gotham getting its final season. Not like they'd suddenly change their mind if Gotham ended up going beyond five seasons.

Plus, Arrow's used Ra's al Ghul before and we got a glimpse of Harley Quinn from the back in that Suicide Squad episode, not to mention that the name Oracle is apparently taken- though that could just be a wink and nod to fans- so not like Batman specific characters were ever completely off the table, as they've eased up on that, both with the Gotham name drop on Supergirl and the Bruce Wayne name drop on Arrow last year.

Batman DEFINITELY exists in Supergirl’s universe. They’ve directly referenced him multiple times on that show as Superman’s friend he’s worked with in the past. I’m kinda hoping this crossover’s set on that Earth for a change, tbh.

Gotham also exists Supergirl's universe, so essentially there's 2 Gothams.

That'll teach me for thinking my favourite characters are safe from being dragged into this.

Yeah, this would be my preferred way of doing things. Bruce Wayne may have been established in Ollie Queen's universe, but Batman hasn't.

It would make much more sense if the Bat family were to come from Supergirl's universe, given how much of Batman's canon has been nicked by Arrow over the years. A universe with Superman and Batman in makes more sense, than trying to crowbar Batman into the Flarrow universe.

I’m excited that Batwoman is coming to the Arrowverse. This could be Arrows last season but giving that we have a new showrunner I think the show still has some legs for more.
