'Batwoman' Season 2: Kara Danvers cameo in next installment is still a real possibility
With the upcoming season most definitely tying up a majority of the plot points of the pilot season, there is still a chance of Kara making an appearance
If everything had gone according to plan, fans' hopes of a Kara Danvers/ Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) appearance in the finale of 'Batwoman' would have come true. Unfortunately, with the coronavirus outbreak, the filming of the series' last couple of episodes had to be delayed, resulting in Episode 19 being the makeshift finale. There was a potential Kara cameo though as part of the plans.
The finale saw Kate (Ruby Rose) telling Mary and Luke that she's been keeping a shard of Kryptonite on Kara's behalf and she would need her approval to turn it over to be destroyed. Showrunner, Caroline Dries, in an interview with TVLine after the finale, recounted the time they realized a crossover wasn't possible calling it "a bummer". She added Kate had kept the Kryptonite hidden in a photo frame which was supposed to be a picture of Kate with Kara.
"Well, here is one of the COVID setbacks. The frame that Kate swipes the kryptonite out of, that was supposed to be a picture of Kara and Kate. When I saw the cut it said, 'INSERT PICTURE OF KARA & KATE.' I was like, 'Guys, why is this still in the cut?' They said, 'We can’t go and shoot a picture of them together, we're on lockdown.' So that was kind of a bummer because I wanted to show that Kate had a picture of Kara in her library because they’re friends."
This leaves fans hoping for crossover episodes in 'Batwoman' Season 2 and 'Supergirl' Season 7. Fans have been hoping for the two superheroes to have a link-up and kick-ass episode since 'Batwoman's debut and the duo's friendship that blossomed during 'Crisis on Infinite Earths', the epic five-part crossover.
'The Flash' and 'Arrow' fans have seen crossover episodes that eventually paved way to establish the two titular characters as equals and also firmly cementing them as the best of friends. Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) first showed up in 'Arrow' Season 2 and Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) made an appearance in 'The Flash's pilot. This has led 'Batwoman' and 'Supergirl' fans to question if the crossover was left too late.
Ideally, it wasn't and for good reason. With the show focusing solely on Kate Kane, giving her a rather dark origin story, it makes sense for the audience to know as much as possible about the character. Keep in mind that these shows are created for a new audience and not necessarily for the comic aficionados who already have some knowledge about Batwoman.
There is still hope though. With the upcoming season most definitely tying up a majority of the plot points of the pilot season, there is still a chance of Kara making an appearance. Only time will tell how the writers plan to make this possible.
'Batwoman' Season 1 is available to stream on The CW app and website.
