Stephen Amell confirms this year’s #Arrowverse crossover will involve a new superhero, Batwoman.
Each year, Amell’s show “Arrow” and its fictional world adds another hero for a special series of episodes. This year, Green Arrow (Amell), The Flash, Supergirl, and the Legends of Tomorrow will be joined by Batwoman to help fight Gotham City’s crime.
The Canadian actor, 37, teased the crossover Thursday at the CW upfront event in New York City: “We will be doing another crossover event this fall on The CW [and] we will be introducing a new character,” he told TVLine. “We will be fighting alongside Batwoman.”
“We’re adding the city of Gotham into the Arrowverse,” added CW president Mark Pedowitz, promising “another full-throttled action-packed event.”
On Wednesday, Amell got fans buzzing when he almost spilled the beans early: “I’m gonna be in New York on Thursday for the CW’s upfronts. And I get to make a really fun announcement,” he teased. “And The CW is just so freaked out that I’m going to spoil it at some point during this panel.”
Fans on Twitter are very excited about the Arrowverse’s new addition:
