Elseworlds, the upcoming DC Television Universe crossover event, is going to introduce fans to Ruby Rose’s Batwoman along with more characters like “Black Suit” Superman. Fans will also get to see the first look at Gotham City in the “Arrowverse”, starting with new set photos.
Here’s the Arrowverse version of Gotham City (or Chicago) along with the first look at the Wayne Enterprises building:

As revealed by Marc Guggenheim, these shots in Chicago will work for the Gotham City setting, instead of locales in Vancouver, the typical setting for Arrowverse sets. We might get a little Easter Egg reference to Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy if that’s the same building Nolan used for Wayne Enterprises while filming Gotham City in Chicago.
Fans are really excited about these new characters being introduced to the Arrowverse. Lois Lane and Batwoman will be debuting in the event, while Green Arrow and The Flash will switch identities, along with the greatest threat till date: a black suit Superman. Here’s what Arrow star Stephen Amell said about the crossover event:
“The crossover is f**king bananas. It’s crazy… I think that this will be the best crossover event that we do. And not just the best but the best by a really, really wide margin. And I think that last year was fantastic. Crisis on Earth-X, I think that’s what it was called, that was pretty crazy and getting to play doppelgängers was pretty crazy. When Greg Berlanti first talked to me about why he wanted to do crossovers, it was because it’s for the fans. It’s so people can watch characters and scenarios that combine their favorite things on TV or introduce them to new things on TV. But you also get this license to do things that we could never do in the vacuum — especially on Arrow — that we can never do in the vacuum of just our show.”
