If you love #Arrow, #Flash, #LegendsofTomorrow or #Supergirl, there is some brilliant news to keep you happy, all four shows have officially been renewed! Arrow will receive its sixth season, Flash its fourth season and Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl their third seasons. Each show has proven to be popular and the CW seem to know this, and unlike the #DCExtendedUniverse, the Arrowverse is succeeding in creating a diverse world for the heroes and villains to cross between. The recent crossover story, that began in Flash, saw its middle in Arrow and finale in Legends of Tomorrow, was particularly genius as it made fans watch the other shows just to understand what was happening. With all four shows now renewed, it is likely we will see this happening again as it caused rating to spike with each show.
With the superhero numbers increasing in the shows, the question is...who could we see next, where and when? We have already had teases of #Batman existing in Supergirl with both #Gothem being named and Kara mentioning how her cousin has teamed up with a crazy vigilante before. But, with the 'Super' and 'Bat' families appearing to be absent from the universe Arrow, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow reside within, you have to wonder if it is only a matter of time before they appear?
It has already been suggested by the creators that Power Girl is set to appear in Flash, which would suggest #Krypton did exist in their world. Likewise, could it also be only a matter of time before some of the characters in the Arrowverse start to appear in Supergirl? With Supergirl set on a different Earth to the rest of the shows, they could have a lot of fun with these characters if they wanted to and alter personalities and designs for the characters between the two worlds.

The Arrowverse has done a brilliant job of avoiding the more high-profile names from DC, with Supergirl and Flash perhaps being the most famous and well-known of all the characters used so far. However, there is one big #DC name yet to even be mentioned in either of the worlds. She is quite a big and important name in DC, and that is...#WonderWoman. In 2011 NBC did attempt to create a Wonder Woman show with Adrianne Palicki as the Amazon Princess, but opted to not pick the show up for a full run. #Superman has now appeared in Supergirl and hints suggest Batman is on his way at some point, so when will the final member of the DC Trinity make her debut?
The simple reason she has not been even mentioned yet could be that Wonder Woman is set to appear in her own movie later this year. It wouldn't be crazy for the creators of the shows to be avoiding using her, as they do not wish to detract from the commercial and marketing aspects for the Wonder Woman movie. But, by this time next year the character could indeed make her debut in the shows as her movie would be out by this time and her name will have a much higher profile. With the Arrowverse lacking in extreme muscle, Wonder Woman could join Arrow, Flash or Legends of Tomorrow, but it is more likely she would be set to appear in Supergirl and be the one to help harness the true power behind the Girl-of-Steel with some Amazon training.
Another option that could appear in the Arrowverse are the #TeenTitans or #YoungJustice teams. The reasoning behind their appearance would be simple, they admire the heroes in their world and want to get in on the action. With the absence of both Superman and Batman in the Arrowverse we would most likely see an alteration in their lineups. However, Speedy and Kid Flash could both be among the roster and see them both becoming heroes away from their mentors. It would also give them the option to bring Raven, Cyborg, Beast Boy, Blue Beetle and even Starfire into a live-action arena.
We do know at one time a live-action Young Justice based show was on the table, but was scrapped due to "plans" the creators had for the team. Could their plan be for the team to become part of the Arrowverse? With the franchise's popularity rising, it is a possibility. One thing that we can say for certainty is that with the renewal of all four shows, the number of DC characters is set to skyrocket once again and we will be seeing more crossovers in the future.
