A new trailer for The CW’s upcoming series “Gotham Knights” has been released, and it features the demise of Bruce Wayne aka Batman, among other surprises.
In the trailer, we see Misha Collins as Harvey Dent, breaking the news to Turner Hayes that Wayne has been murdered. It appears that Hayes, as well as three other teens are to be the suspects.
To be presented by CW in 2023, the series does not exist within the world of “Arrowverse.” And though the series centers around the Dark Knight, the series is not to be confused with the video game of the same name.
Olivia Rose Keegan, Navia Robinson, Fallon Smythe and Tyler DiChiara star alongside Misha Collins. “Gotham Knights” is written by Chad Fiveash, James Stoteraux and Natalie Abrams.
Here’s the official synopsis for ‘Gotham Knights’:
Batman is dead, and a powder keg has ignited Gotham City without the Dark Knight to protect it. In the wake of Bruce Wayne’s murder, his adopted son Turner Hayes (Oscar Morgan, “De Son Vivant”) is framed for killing the Caped Crusader, along with the children of some of Batman’s enemies: Duela (Olivia Rose Keegan, “Days of Our Lives”), an unpredictable fighter and skilled thief who was born in Arkham Asylum and abandoned by her father, Harper Row (Fallon Smythe, “grown-ish”), a streetwise and acerbic engineer who can fix anything, and her brother Cullen Row (Tyler DiChiara, “The Virgin of Highland Park”), a clever transgender teen who is tired of being polite and agreeable. With the charismatic and hard-charging District Attorney Harvey Dent (Misha Collins, “Supernatural”) and the GCPD hot on their trail, Turner will rely on allies including his best friend and formidable coder Stephanie Brown (Anna Lore, “All American”), and unlikely Batman sidekick Carrie Kelley (Navia Robinson, “Raven’s Home”). But our Knights will soon learn there is a larger, more nefarious force at work within Gotham City. This team of mismatched fugitives must band together to become its next generation of saviors known as the GOTHAM KNIGHTS.
