The CW is looking to add another Arrowverse show to its 2020-2021 lineup. Here’s a list of five shows that could be the next DC show to join the Arrowverse. 

Arrow is almost at its finish line with its final 10 episodes airing this fall. With Arrow ending and opening up another slot in The CW’s lineup, the network is looking to add yet another Arrowverse show by the next season, according to Deadline.

While we still don’t know which superhero is getting their own series and other details are not yet clear, we know for a fact that it will be connected to Arrowverse.

During the recent TCAs, CW president Mark Pedowitz revealed that he is looking forward to adding another DC property to the network’s programming, for the 2020-2021 TV season, according to the report.

Now, your minds might be initially going to a conclusion that it could be a Star City 2040 spinoff centering around Mia, William, Connor, and Zoey, but The CW president has made it clear that, while this spinoff is certainly a possibility, it is still yet to be discussed upon.

With Star City 2040 storyline out of the picture for this spinoff show, here are our top five picks for what this upcoming show might be based on what we would like to see the most.

5. Birds of Prey

Arrow season 7 included an all-star team-up between Black Siren, Black Canary, Overwatch, and White Canary. Felicity referred to themselves as Birds of Justice towards the end of the episode.

It seems very likely that with the end of Arrow that we might see these characters eventually form another team to fight crime and take up this title. The episode was really good and showed that it had great potential with the cast certainly able to hold their own show.

The only problem with this seems to be the fact that the DCEU has their own definitive version of Birds of Prey coming to theaters next year. With that, it doesn’t seem likely that they’d hand over the rights to The CW to make a show when they are making a movie at the same time.

4. Suicide Squad

Arrow did justice to Suicide Squad back in season 3. It was even gonna get its own TV Show with Deadshot set to lead the team, but Warner Bros. did not allow it to happen.

During Season 7, Arrow tried their version of Suicide Squad again without actually calling it that, and once again it was really better than the movie. I think it would actually make for a more engaging watch, while the chances of this happening are really slim.

3. Green Lantern 

During Elseworlds, it was teased that John Diggle is Green Lantern in another earth. Toward the end of the season, we also got to find out that Diggle’s real name is John Stewart aka one of the beloved versions of Green Lantern.

It has been rumored that the superhero would make its Arrowverse entrance during Crisis. David Ramsey has also teased that we will see the conclusion to Green Lantern mythology during season 8, according to Cinema Blend. All of this lifts our hopes of getting a Green Lantern series starring Ramsey. We would be thrilled if that happened!

2. Superman

Tyler Hoechlin is my favorite Superman. Hoechlin’s Clark Kent and Superman resembles hope, and it is a joy to watch him on the screen.

With the DCEU not making another Superman movie for a while and Clarke and Lois Lane having a kid during Crisis, it is the perfect setup to a new story with these characters.

This would not impact whatever Warner Bros. has planned for Superman. While Hoechlin could certainly hold a show on his own, Bitsie Tulloch as Lois Lane and Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor would take the series up another notch and would make it worthwhile. This is the one I’m rooting for.

1. Batman Beyond

According to TheWrap, it has been recently announced that the legendary voice actor Kevin Conroy, who voiced Batman for more than two decades, will play the future version of Bruce Wayne in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths.

This announcement has officially sparked conversations about a potential Batman Beyond show set in the future with Conroy as an older version of Batman mentoring Terry McGinnis.

With Batman Beyond not likely to happen in the big screens for a while, as of now, Arrowverse seems to be the perfect place for the show.
