With each new wave of seasons and spin-offs, Warner Bros.’ DC TV Universe has just continued to grow over the years, after the introduction of Oliver Queen/ArrowThe Flash, SupergirlLegends of Tomorrow, and that’s not even counting the special appearance characters who haven’t gotten their own standalone series. Though, some shows haven’t always succeeded, and some characters have been nixed, so they can be used only in the DC live-action films.

However, it looks like in addition to a number of new heroes and villains in Legends of Tomorrow‘s second season, as well as the transition Supergirl experienced from CBS to the CW this season as well, it looks like fans can expect to see even more characters popping up throughout all of the shows this time around.

Bleeding Cool is reporting that Matt Ryan’s John Constantine, Kate Kane/Batwoman, and Barbara Gordon/Oracle will all be making appearances in the DC TV shows throughout their respective 2015-16 seasons. Batwoman will apparently be introduced in Supergirl season 2 as the ex-gf of Maggie Sawyer, who’s adventures bring her occasionally to National City. Barbara will apparently also be introduced with Batwoman, and will develop a strong bond with Kara/Supergirl. If this rumor turns out to be true, at least.

This wouldn’t be shocking news either, considering some huge announcements are expected to be made at San Diego Comic-Con this week, and after both Wentworth Miller and John Barrowman have signed contracts to be series regulars for all of the CW DC shows, which the report says John Wesley Shipp could also be doing soon.

This would also explain why after already making his brief appearance in Arrow season four, the CW recently added all 13 episodes of Constantine to the CW seed, which many believed could be a new test on the network’s part to decide whether they wanted to resurrect the show or not. Though this report states he could instead be on the receiving end of a deal similar to Miller and Barrowman’s.

Make sure to take all of this with a grain of salt for the time being, though the introduction of all of these characters could make sense in the context of each show. After all, Supergirl will finally, actually be introducing Superman this season, and with him, could come even bigger and more iconic names from the DC comics than what fans have seen from the series so far. Here’s to hoping, at least.
