Comicbook.com was present during The CW's recent upfront presentation, where  Stephen Amell, Arrow announced that Batwoman will be featured in the upcoming Arrowverse Crossover.

"This is the first time they will make a live appearance on any screen," said CW President Mark Pedowitz.
Batwoman was first introduced to comics by DC Comics in 1956. Kate Kane took over the mantle in 2006. Since then, the character has developed a fairly passionate fan, especially as one of DC's first lesbian superheroes. For the past few years, fans have seen several incarnations of Batwoman about DC Comics, most recently in their own solo series, and as a leading member of Bombshells United .
For DC Comics fans, this will surely be a pleasant surprise as it expands the Arrowverse in some new – and unexpected – directions. Firstly, the launch of Gotham City is at an interesting point for DC Television as Gotham nears the end and new Batman television shows go into development. And after the rousing Bruce Wayne title from this season by Arrow, it sounds like Gotham City could play a different role.
And if Batwoman is introduced in a crossover – who knows? Could she appear at the bottom of the list Legends of Tomorrow ? Or could the event possibly build its own solo series? One thing is for sure, Arrowverse fans will probably be eager to find out.
