"That's not on us," Leslie quickly added. "That's more so because of everything going on with COVID. We have protocols. Just to be able to collaborate with another show, it's really going to be about whether or not we can do it in a safe way."
Any Arrowverse fan knows the most-anticipated events every fall on The CW are the crossover episodes, which unite multiple heroes across series, including "The Flash," "Supergirl," "Batwoman," and "The Legends of Tomorrow."
December 2019's massive "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover event - the final time we saw the DC
In June 2020, The CW president Mark Pedowitz said the network was aiming for a smaller crossover to involve characters from "Batwoman" and the upcoming new spinoff, "Superman & Lois," out in February. Executive producer Greg Berlanti reiterated this at WB's DC FanDome event two months later.
It's unclear whether or not that's still the plan with the ongoing pandemic.
The first Black actress to play the superhero, Leslie takes over the famous cape and cowl from Ruby Rose, who stepped down from the role of Kate Kane (Batman's cousin) in May 2020. Leslie will not take over the role of Kane, instead she's playing an original character, Ryan Wilder.
Leslie told Insider they've been "really blessed" to be able to film the second season during the pandemic.
"Our studio, our network is doing such an amazing job, making sure that we're safe, whether it be through PPE, new protocols through staying in our own zones," Leslie said. "I think they're doing the best that they can to make sure that we're able to still continue to come to work and provide for our families."
