CW is dedicated to keeping their Arrowverse alive even though it appears WB & DCEU seem to favor their more mature shows like Titans, Doom Patrol and the films connected Peacemaker.
Gotham Knights follows one of Batman’s prodigies teaming up with some of the late Dark Knight’s rogues after they are framed for the murder of Bruce Wayne.
Now it looks like casting for the show has finally begun.
Variety revealed that two new stars have joined CW’s Gotham Knights. Fallon Smythe will appear as Harper Row, and Tyler DiChiara will play her brother, Cullen Row.
In the comics, Harper is known as Bluebird and is an ally to both Batman and Red Robin. She helped save Bruce Wayne’s life after a defeat at the hands of the Court of Owls.
Cullen, besides being her brother, doesn’t have a superhero persona of his own, or much notable comic lore to go with him.
Gotham Knights will follow a story where Bruce Wayne is murdered, and his (still unidentified or casted) rebellious son forms an unlikely alliance with children of some of Batman’s biggest enemies, who all have been framed for killing the famous billionaire.
Smythe has previously been seen in the Disney Channel series I Didn’t Do It as well as Nickelodeon’s Lost in the West. As for DiChiara, two recent films of his are Relish and The Virgin of Highland Park.
“Gotham Knights” hails from “Batwoman” writers Natalie Abrams, James Stoteraux, and Chad Fiveash. Stoteraux and Fiveash are executive producers on “Gotham Knights,” with Abrams co-executive producing. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden of Berlanti Productions will also executive produce. Danny Cannon will direct and executive produce the pilot. Warner Bros. Television is the studio. “Gotham Knights” is not a spinoff of “Batwoman,” nor is it tied to the upcoming “Gotham Knights” video game.
