Following two new teasers in which Oliver Queen and Barry Allen switch places, EW has shared a new Elseworlds photo featuring Ruby Rose’s Batwoman in the Arrowverse crossover. Elseworlds will mark her first appearance, but Rose will also play the role in the Batwoman series in development for the 2019-20 season.
The magazine says that in the scene depicted in the Elseworlds photo above, Batwoman uses her grapple hook and Batarang to stop two inmates from escaping Arkham Asylum, and saves Green Arrow and Cisco in the process. “I wanted all of the bat toys to be revealed in one scene,” said director James Bamford.
Newcomers to the Elseworlds cast also include Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, Cassandra Jean Amell (Stephen Amell’s real-life wife) as Nora Fries, the wife of Mr. Freeze, LaMonica Garrett (Designated Survivor) as The Monitor, and Jeremy Davies as Dr. John Deegan.
The crossover starts on Sunday, Dec. 9 with The Flash at 8 p.m., followed by Arrow on Dec. 10 at 8 p.m., and concluding Dec. 11 at the same time with Supergirl. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is not part of the crossover this year.
