    Is "universe" the right word for this? I mean they're not connected, are they?

    Maybe "The DCW Loosely Affiliated Range of TV Shows"...

    The CW has long been quietly doing successfully what studio after studio has failed to do following the MCU's success, emulating it. Quietly they have built a concurrent TV universe across five shows and a huge array of characters, even featuring cross overs and team events in a manner that even Marvel has struggled to make work with its own TV content.

    At this point, and after losing updates from last year, it's easier for these shows to fall under one roof as the DCWU (commonly and somewhat inaccurately these days referred to as the Arrowverse, is showing no sign of ending soon and continues to expand. It's also only a short three years younger than the MCU.

    This years Arrow Season 7 will be notable because it's not just the first time one of the shows reaches the traditional finale season point that will indicate whether CW plans to place a cap on incarnations or to continually extend as they do with Supernatural, but it will be the first time that (outside a brief line of dialogue) the universe brings in the core Batman mythology.

    This coming season Ollie will travel to Gotham City and Batwoman will feature. This appears to be for this years four episode event storyline where the four active shows merge for a single threat.

    This is a rare occasion where they're all properly connected with characters regularly popping up on other shows, they've reached a point where even key events from one show can occur in another. It's only let down by the fluctuating quality levels across the shows
