Although Marvel is the absolute king of connected superhero universes and epic crossover events in the movie, DC and the CWev Arrowverse universe still hold their territory on small screens, which is why it is not surprising that they do not intend to stop with this television universe anytime soon.
The Arrowverse came to life in 2012 with the launch of the Arrow series, and its expansion began two years later when the series The Flash began, and a year later was joined by Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow. This fall, the fifth Batwoman series will launch, and two animated WEB series has been created as part of this universe, with the third being in the early stages of development.
Although CW, at least for the time being, is not yet entitled to use the most important DC characters like Batman, Wonder Woman or Aquaman, they still have a very large and colorful range of characters whose stories can be told as part of this universe, but maybe even this new series it won't be about a new character, as there is even mention of a spin-off of Arrow where Mia Smoak (daughter of Oliver / Green Arrow and Felicity Smoak), played in the secondary plot set for the future in the seventh season of Arrow by the excellent Katherine McNamara, who will also return in the upcoming eighth season, which will also be the final. CW President Mark Pedowitz said this spin-off was possible but also looking for new characters to expand the universe:
"The fact that we introduced Arrow seven years ago, who would have thought he would have created six series, the entire universe he was able to create. It's a pretty remarkable feat. "
Arrow will end this season after the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, which will be the largest crossover ever and a kind of Endgame, the culmination of what has been so far and an introduction to the future of the Arrowverse.
This fall, October 6th, will have its Batwoman premiere, which Pedowitz has announced:
"It's the next step to do something. We believe that these franchises will continue this universe for many years to come, so it is important to ensure that you have characters that will keep fans coming back. How it will play out, time will tell. ”
Arrow begins its final season on October 15, and the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover will begin December 8. Which characters would you like to see more in the Arrowverse?
