Next season's Arrowverse crossover event is going to feature an even bigger kick-ass lineup of DC comics superheroes. "I need to leave right now and start filming it".
Batwoman's addition also means that the Arrowverse will expand to include Gotham City, something many fans have been dying to see. The heroine, who was first introduced as Kathy Kane in the July 1956 DC Comics issue Detective Comics #233, is one of a number of powerful vigilantes that keep a watchful eye over the city that houses Arkham Asylum, Blackgate Penitentiary, Iceberg Lounge, Wayne Enterprises, and Wayne Manor. There was no confirmation on which Earth this Gotham is - Arrow recently alluded to the existence of Bruce Wayne and Gotham on its own Earth, but Supergirl has also made references acknowledging its existence on Earth-38.
