As of late, The CW have been revealing many puzzle pieces making up the next major Arrowverse crossover – it’s just that we have no idea of how they fit. All we can do is hope that an official plot synopsis is disclosed soon enough because all we can tell is that whatever’s planned will be huge and likely badass.
To briefly reiterate, Ruby Rose will suit up as the first ever live action iteration of Batwoman, Tyler Hoechlin will return as Superman, Elizabeth Tulloch will play opposite him as Lois Lane, and Cassandra Jean Amell has been cast as Nora Fries, wife of Mr. Freeze. And if that weren’t enough, Jeremy Davies has jumped aboard as Arkham Asylum’s Dr. John Deegan, who seems to be placed in a villainous role.
Adding to the intrigue is that of Arrow‘s own Juliana Harkavy, who had this to offer while speaking with ComicBook.com at San Diego Comic-Con:
“It’s going to be amazing. It’s going to be way different than it’s ever been and it’s going to be really fun.”

Based on that and everything else we covered above, it’s probably safe to say that we’re indeed in for a much different viewing experience from past offerings like, say, “Invasion!” and “Crisis on Earth-X” come later this fall. Of course, everyone will have their own preferences in the end, but I just have this gut feeling that the next one will top its predecessors.
Speaking of Harkavy’s character of Dinah Drake, I do hope that she gets to fight side by side with Batwoman for at least one scene because it’d be cool to see such iconic DC heroines sharing the small screen. It’s probably a lock that Supergirl will get that opportunity, but let’s not forget those crimefighters who aren’t in headlining gigs.
This fall’s Arrowverse crossover begins on Sunday, December 9 with The Flash, continues on Monday, December 10 with Arrow, and wraps up on Tuesday, December 11 with Supergirl.
