Constantine, Batwoman, and Oracle Rumored to Appear on Flarrowverse Shows
The Flarrowverse is about to get a lot more comics cred. Beloved comics characters including Constantine, Batwoman, and Oracle are all being primed for future appearances on Arrow/The Flash/Supergirl/Legends of Tomorrow, or all of the above.

Batwoman seems like the surest thing, since Maggie Sawyer was recently set as a series regular on Supergirl for season two. In the comics, Maggie Sawyer was Kathy Kane's ex-lover, and according to Bleeding Cool, the characters will have the same relationship (or lack thereof) in the show, and Batwoman's adventures will "occasionally take her to National City." So it sounds like she'll have a recurring role rather than a regular role, but it's exciting all the same. 

Bleeding Cool also claimed that Barbara Gordon/Oracle will appear on Supergirl in a recurring capacity, and will develop close relationships with both Kara and Batwoman. Her relationship with Batwoman is reportedly modeled after Barbara's relationship with Dinah Lance in the original Chuck Dixon era of Birds of Prey.

We hope that these reports are true, if only because they would add much-needed representation for the LGBT and disabled communities, and they sound fairly likely. Constantine may be more of a long shot, but Bleeding Cool says there's a chance that Matt Ryan will receive a role across all the Flarrowverse shows, similar to the deals struck with Wentworth Miller and, most recently, John Barrowman. It seems to be very up in the air, and contingent on Constantine's streaming popularity on CW Seed, but it's probably safe to assume that Ryan will make more Flarrowverse guest spots, at the very least.
