    Batman Will Appear On "Arrow"

    Over the years, the CW's Arrowverse has made many references regarding Batman and other members of the Bat family. Arrow has even featured a few of Batman's more popular rogues, including Ra's al Ghul and Deathstroke. Redditor /u/atomic00abomb seems to think it is inevitable that the show will feature everyone's favorite bat. 

    After all, Superman has shown up on Supergirl, it's only fair that we get Batman on Arrow

    Redditor /u/Goholite theorized that Arrow plans to introduce a new team of villans in place of the Suicide Squad: the Secret Six. Not only was Deadshot introduced as a member of the Suicide Squad in the early seasons of Arrow, but many of the other members of the Secret Six would fit right into the Arrowverse, including Scandal Savage, Vandal Savage's immortal daughter.

    Felicity Is Oracle

    Redditor /u/AnEmeraldFox suggests Arrow's Felicity Smoak is the Arrowverse version of Oracle. While Felicity was given the codename "Overwatch" in season four, she later survives being shot but is left paralyzed, paralleling when the Joker paralyzed Barbra Gordon (the original Oracle).

    Could Felicity become Oracle? Or is she simply another superhero hacker, not unlike Smallville's Watchtower?

    Dinah Drake Is Laurel And Sara Lance's Grandmother

    Arrowverse Wiki blog user Eobard95 has an interesting theory about Dinah Drake's relationship to both Dinah Laurel Lance and Sara Lance. Perhaps Dinah Drake is actually the grandmother of the ghosts of Black Canary's past. If Drake has become displaced in time after both of her grandchildren had abandoned the mantle of the Black Canary, it explains how she ended up with the Lance family name of "Dinah" as well as that powerful canary call.
