The CW’s ‘Arrowverse’ Rebrands as ‘TheCWverse’ in New Promo for Superhero Shows (Video)

Guess that’s one way to solve the ”Arrow“-is-over problem

The CW has found a way to solve its “Arrowverse” name problem (considering the fact “Arrow” is now over, but the universe of shows lives on) — though we don’t know if you’re going to like it.

On Tuesday, the broadcast network dropped a promo for its new and returning superhero series, which labeled the universe they all exist in — which has long been dubbed the “Arrowverse,” after the now-ended Stephen Amell-led series that started it all — “TheCWverse.”

The 2-minute promo, which you can view via the video above, kicks off, appropriately, with scenes from “Arrow,” as the words “From one hero an entire universe was born” flash across the screen.

And then comes “TheCWverse” logo, before the video cuts to clips from all the network’s currently airing superhero series that have launched since the premiere of “Arrow” in 2012, including “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Stargirl,” “Batwoman,” “Black Lightning,” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” as well as upcoming “Superman & Lois.”

None of these series made The CW’s fall lineup due to COVID-related production shutdowns and delays, but are expected to debut at midseason.

A representative for The CW told TheWrap the network has actually been using “TheCWverse” rebrand “for a while,” pointing to this promo from last year, which ran before well before “Arrow” concluded in January.
