As a expert I came to see if this video was good enough to show to my friends when they ask what the arrowverse is, and why I’m like obsessed with the DC universe

But does the Flash’s universe have superman and batman or not?
Here’s what I know:
- Superman is in the same world as Batman (Bruce Wayne)
-Superman is also in the same world as Supergirl (Cara Danvers)
- Supergirl is NOT part of the same world as The Flash (Barry Allen)
The flash IS in the same world as the Green Arrow (Oliver Queen).
- At some point in Arrow’s 6th season, Oliver Queen, as the mayor, references Bruce Wayne (Batman).
- This implies that they are from the same universe.

- At the same time, Superman, Batman and the Flash are seen as being part of the same universe in ‘The Justice League’ (2016) movie.

- Even assuming that the movies are take from a totally different standpoint, that still doesn’t explain the TV series Logic.

If anybody know the answer to my predicament, please share.

Thank you for reading this. Have a lovely day 😊

What does cw superheroes mean. The meaning of CW please.

Author — Edi T


Oh so no I understand why they call it arrowverse which makes since but it still kinda stupid to me. I don't know why they just can't say dcuniverse.
