Batwoman is being lined up for an appearance on Arrow.

The news was announced at The CW’s upfront presentation (via Entertainment Weekly), by Arrow actor, Stephen Amell.

He said: “We’re incredibly excited to announce that we’ll be doing another crossover event this fall on The CW, and we’ll be introducing a new character.” He added: “For the very first time appearing, we’ll be fighting alongside Batwoman, which is terrific. The crossover is going to make it to air in December. I need to leave right now and start filming it.”

The crossover that Amell speaks of is the now annual crossover event that sees all of the Arrowverse shows cross into each other for a week-long event.

Excited?

The Arrowverse has previously done a great job of handling LGBT characters – of which Batwoman is one – so this is great news.
