TVLine Items: CW's Batwoman Teaser, Magnum Adds Mentalist Vet and More

Batwoman’s entry into the Arrowverse is nigh.

The CW on Friday released a new DC sizzle reel timed to Day 2 of San Diego Comic-Con. The video (embedded above) features footage from the most recent seasons of Arrow, Black Lightning, Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash and Supergirl. It then teases, “This December… from the shadows… a new hero will rise,” before the Batwoman logo appears on screen.

As previously reported, the yet-to-be cast Batwoman will make her debut during this fall’s annual crossover event, then is poised to get her own standalone series, as announced earlier this week.
