Just over a week away from the debut of the highly-anticipated "Elseworlds" Arrowverse crossover on The CW, one of the stars slated to appear in the show shared an image of cast surrounding an iconic item that DC fans will instantly recognize.

Though the Bat-Signal is typically used to draw attention from Batman, Bruce Wayne won't be appearing in the three-night "Elseworlds" crossover. Rather, it'll be used to signal Kate Kane's Batwoman, a character who's making her live-action debut.
Arrowverse architect Marc Guggenheim previously told EW that Batman has been missing from Gotham for years, creating a "dead city," which allowed crime to grow at exponential rates.
“It’s a dead city,” said Guggenheim. “The way I sort of described it to Stephen is, it’s there but for the grace of God goes Star City. It’s the worst case scenario. The reason no one talks about Gotham is the city might as well be dead. It’s practically a ghost town.”
It Batman's place, however, will be Kate Kane — played by Orange Is The New Black and John Wick alum Ruby Rose. According to Rose, it was an empowering moment putting on the Batwoman costume for the first time.
“It’s a strange feeling to put on a suit like this that has been custom made for you knowing that it’s going to transform you into a character that does amazing things,” Rose told EW. “You feel very empowered and it just instantly changes everything you feel in that moment.”5comments
