Superman and Lois will meet Batwoman in Arrowverse’s next crossover event

May 23rd, 2020 by Marc Comments

Over the last few years The CW’s Arrowverse has been giving us bigger and bigger crossover events around the Christmas season, pulling in all their shows – most recently pulling in Arrow, Flash, Legends, Supergirl, Batwoman and Black Lighting for Crisis on Infinite Earths.

But, while watching that events, I had the same feeling I had watching Avengers Infinity War and Engame… ‘how are they going to top this in the next one!?’.

And it looks like The CW, like Marvel’s Phase 4, know that they can’t go bigger so, instead, will just go smaller and, presumably, more personal.

CW chairman and CEO Mark Pedowitz during a conference call during the week revealed that this year’s crossover will focus on new series Superman and Lois and will see Batwoman coming into their show.

Although, since then we learned that Ruby Rose has stepped down as Batwoman (here), but we’d have to presume that they’ll have a new actress onboard by then.

While the current pandemic has resulted in the new shows not debuting until January 2021, Arrowverse boss Marc Guggenheim had previously said that after Crisis they would be “returning to the roots [of the events]” moving forward.

Pedowitz said the two episodes would likely air in a two-hour block on a Sunday but he said that, despite it being a smaller occasion, not to worry as “a lot of characters” from other shows would also appear.

With the shows not kicking off until January, it’s likely we’ll not see the crossover until February or March… but it should be worth waiting for.

Thoughts on the Arrowverse focusing on smaller stories moving forward? Let me know..

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
