This spring, Kate Kane was set to descend on the CW’s Arrowverse as a part of its now-traditional multi-show crossover. But Gotham might be about to become a permanent fixture for Ollie and friends, because the CW is planning a potential a Batwoman TV show for 2019.

With this week's season finale of Supergirl, we've come to the end of another wave of DC/CW superhero goodness. We've had highs and lows, and surprises and shocks, but it's officially time to cast our eyes to the next seasons of the frankly ludicrous number of DC superhero shows on the CW. This is what we want from Kara, Barry, Jefferson and the rest of the gang when they return this spring.
There's even more teasery footage from Ant-Man and The Wasp and Halloween. Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb offers teases about the future of Defenders, the return of Iron Fist, and John Ridley's ultra-secretive Marvel TV project. Plus, Peter Jackson is back to denying any involvement with the new Lord of the Rings show. Spoilers, go!
Recent reports revealed that Keiynan Lonsdale's Wally West would no longer be a series regular with Legends of Tomorrow's fourth season - but the actor has now confirmed that not only is he exiting the show, but moving on to new pastures for the foreseeable future.
And here we are, at the end of an uneven season of The Flash with a suitably uneven finale episode. For all the talk that Clifford DeVoe was going to be a villain unlike anything Barry and the crew had faced before, the Thinker's arc in season four has been a total slog -- but last night's Flash not only finished his reign of "enh," it gave us plenty of other points of interest.
Ever since Barry and Iris' wedding got interrupted by alt-reality Nazis last year (ah, comic book shows), The Flash has had an intriguing character to slowly peel away at: Jessica Parker Kennedy's "mystery girl". She's spent this whole season popping up in weird places, but this week gave us our biggest clue to her identity yet.
Just when Arrow fans thought Roy and Thea were going to ride off and save the world together (and cuddle along the way), news of actor Colton Haynes, who plays Roy, coming back as a series regular has shaken things up. But that, along with new comments from executive producer Marc Guggenheim, may suggest it's all part of a bigger plan.
It looks as though John Constantine (Matt Ryan) is joining the Waverider for more than his swagger and sweet style. Legends of Tomorrow's co-showrunner Phil Klemmer says the series is diving into the occult next season, and that Mallus is just "the tip of the iceberg".
Over the course of a single season of television, the CW's Legends of Tomorrow have accomplished what it's taken everyone in Marvel's Cinematic Universe 10 years and 18 movies to do: track down six powerful MacGuffins that are the keys to stopping a powerful enemy from beyond who threatens life on Earth. And because this was Legends of Tomorrow, Elvis Presley helped. Of course.
Black Lightning isn't the first television show to prominently feature black superheroes, and it also isn't the first cape series with a predominately black cast. And yet, Black Lightning is telling a very particular story about black lives that's unlike anything else on the CW right now, and it feels very much like it's operating on a different level than most other TV shows based on comic books.
