The Arrowverse - once a robust slate of DC superhero programming airing on The CW, now has but a single show remaining that actually has direct ties to this shared TV universe.
Indeed, the Arrowverse has been dying a slow, painful death for a couple of years now. At one time, it encompassed five concurrently airing series: Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman. Shows like Titans and Stargirl were also confirmed to exist within the Arrowverse’s extended multiverse. Now, it’s down to just The Flash which is ending in 2023.
Arguably the biggest draw for this universe was its annual, large-scale crossover event. These crossovers haven’t been able to move forward since 2020 due to the pandemic, but it looks like there may be one last event in the works before everything goes kaput.
DC’s Stargirl to Cross Over with Titans
Brec Bassinger posted a behind-the-scenes photo to Twitter, showing her in her superhero costume from DC’s Stargirl alongside Ryan Potter who plays Beast Boy in Titans on HBO Max. Also present are director Eric Dean Seaton, who has helmed episodes of many DCTV shows, and Stargirl producer Geoff Johns.
Bassinger also included the following caption, potentially teasing a big Arrowverse multiversal crossover on-screen:
"Omg, so crazy running into my friends in Toronto. Such a crazy coincidence. CrAzy."

The Final DCTV Crossover?
So far, only two shows are confirmed to be participating in this crossover. Stargirl, which is presently airing its third season on The CW, and Titans, which is heading into Season 4 over on HBO Max.
Given that filming wrapped on Stargirl earlier this year, the above photo is very likely for an episode of Titans. Meaning that Brec Bassinger’s Courtney Whitmore is set to be a guest star on the streaming series.
Fans may be wondering though, “Is this the last Arrowverse crossover?” Perhaps not. As mentioned above, The Flash begins its final season next year and since its series finale will seemingly mark the end of the mainline Arrowverse, it stands to reason that the powers that be may just pull out all the stops and stage one final multi-show tie in during that final run.
Supergirl star Melissa Benoist has expressed interest in putting on the cape again, and Tyler Hoechlin is still with the network, playing Clark Kent on the non-Arrowverse series Superman & Lois. These shows do have their own Justice League which was established in the closing minutes of 2020’s Crisis on Infinite Earths. Maybe The Flash will play host to one last adventure for JL members Superman, Supergirl, Martian Manhunter, Batwoman, White Canary, Black Lightning and Flash himself?
Whatever the case may be, fans can look forward to a Titans and Stargirl crossover at some point in Titans’ upcoming fourth season.
