With Arrow having now sadly concluded after eight seasons, there’s a new Arrowverse offering on the horizon in the form of Superman and Lois – and now, there’s news that that new series is due to crossover with another of The CW’s shared universe.
Via Deadline, The CW Chairman Mark Pedowitz has revealed that plans are afoot for a crossover story involving Superman and Lois and Batwoman.
Speaking on a scheduling call, Pedowitz explained, “We’re still working on it. It will be a smaller event than usual, we’re only planning a two-hour event. We are talking about doing Superman and Batwoman together. There’s lots of characters coming from our other shows.”
This shared realm has never been shy of a good crossover or two, of course. Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen crossovers incorporating all of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Black Lightning. Before that, there have been crossovers between Arrow and The Flash, and there was even that brilliant first season episode of Supergirl where Grant Gustin’s Scarlet Speedster accidentally found himself on the world of Kara Danvers.
Most recently, audiences are fresh off the jaw-dropping Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event which had some huge consequences for this shared universe.
As for Superman and Lois, that series will find Tyler Hoechlin and Bitsie Tulloch back in the titular roles that they’ve played sporadically throughout the Arrowverse. Filming of the pilot episode for that show has been delayed due to the ongoing global pandemic we found ourselves in the midst of, but The Cw has plans to deliver a 13-episode first season for the show. Where the possible Superman and Lois and Batwoman crossover story will fit, the current word is that any such event will air in the first half of next year.
