A new series of covers highlight the shows of the Arrowverse, including the upcoming series Batwoman.
In its annual special celebrating Comic-Con International in San Diego, Entertainment Weekly has a spotlight on the heroes of the Arrowverse. To celebrate, the magazine has unveiled five new covers that all highlight the stars and lead heroes from each of the CW's Arrowverse shows, meaning Black Lightning is not included.
The covers feature Stephen Amell's Green Arrow, Grant Gustin's Flash, Melissa Benoist's Supergirl, Caity Lotz's White Canary from Legends of Tomorrow and Ruby Rose as Batwoman.

The stars strike iconic poses as their respective heroes on their covers. For instance, the Batwoman cover pays homage to Michael Cho's striking variant for Batwoman #11, while the Supergirl image recreates an iconic chain-breaking moment featuring her cousin from Neal Adams' cover to Superman #233.
The full story—which you can read here—features interviews with the stars along with the creatives behind the Arrowverse and the various shows at a time of chance. As the Arrowverse approaches the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, Batwoman is set to start giving a new take on Gotham's other Bat-vigilante. Arrow is getting ready for its abbreviated final season.
“I’m 38 years old, and I got this job when I was 30. I’d never had a job for more than a year," said Amell. "The fact that I’ve done this for the better part of a decade, and I’m not going to do it anymore, is a little frightening."
The Arrowverse returns this fall on the CW with the Batwoman premiere kicking things off Sunday, October 6.
