>In the aftermath of Bruce Wayne’s murder, his rebellious adopted son forges an unlikely alliance with the children of Batman’s enemies when they are all framed for killing the Caped Crusader. As the city’s most wanted criminals, this renegade band of misfits must fight to clear their names.

However, hope comes from the most unexpected of places as this team of mismatched fugitives will become its next generation of saviors known as the Gotham Knights.
The CW's GOTHAM KNIGHTS Synopsis And Cast
TURNER HAYES (Oscar Morgan)
>The adopted son of Bruce Wayne. Despite the murder of his biological parents, Turner remains resilient and driven to live up to Bruce’s name. While charming and soulful, he has never quite felt comfortable in this world of wealth and privilege, and when Bruce is murdered and he is framed alongside the children of Batman's enemies, Turner assembles them into the Gotham Knights to clear their names and defend the city from sinister forces.
Who cares? This shit will get cancelled
STEPHANIE BROWN (Anna Lore)
>With sarcasm matched only by her intellect, Stephanie was raised on a steady diet of brain teasers and puzzles by her criminal father. She has honed her skills to become a formidable hacker. But her greatest talent might be hiding a less-than-perfect home life.
CARRIE KELLEY (Navia Robinson)
>Fearless, plucky and idealistic, Carrie talked her way into being an aging Batman’s unlikely new Robin. If there’s a burning building or a person in need, she’s the first to rush in, just as long as she’s home by curfew. Batman's murder, seemingly at the hands of his own son, will force her to choose a side.
Damian better be in this
>>In the aftermath of Bruce Wayne’s murder, his rebellious adopted son forges an unlikely alliance with the children of Batman’s enemies
So... it's like Teen Titans but Suicide Squad?
Who the fuck is Turner Hayes?
>Who the fuck is Turner Hayes?
OC Donut Steel.
Be careful of monkey paws, user.
HARPER ROW (Fallon Smythe)
>Streetwise, acerbic and often underestimated, the blue-haired bisexual is a gifted engineer who can fix anything. But what Harper wants most of all is to repair the broken lives of her and her brother, Cullen, the only person she trusts, and might find a way to do that as a member of the Gotham Knights.
the "batman show without batman" concept worked with gotham because it had younger versions of familiar characters and their origins. being set after bruce wayne's death here means no familiar villains. guarantee you this will only last a season.
They didn't use Tim or Damian because....
People would whine but honestly Steph would make more sense
CULLEN ROW (Tyler DiChiara)
>After years of hiding his true self from an abusive parent, the transgender teen is tired of being polite and agreeable. Clever and adept at reading human nature, Cullen is ready to fight his own battles and will do so alongside his chosen family, the Gotham Knights.
Who's the target audience for this?
DUELA (Olivia Rose-Keegan)
>Abrasive, unpredictable and a little unhinged, Duela is, above all, a survivor. Born in Arkham Asylum and abandoned by her father – the most dangerous man in Gotham – Duela forged herself into a brutal fighter, a skilled thief, and the most volatile member of the Gotham Knights.
Ah great, now they’re turning the gays into trannies.
BRODY (Rahart Adams)
>A confident and charismatic loner whose past is shrouded in secrecy, Brody’s got the brains and the looks — and he knows it. However, his entitled attitude covers his insecurity and jealousy of anyone who rivals him, causing him to oscilate between friend and foe to the Gotham Knights.
inshallah it will crash and burn
Are we gonna get Rose/Jericho?
HARVEY DENT (Misha Collins)
>Gotham’s dashing, charismatic, hard-charging District Attorney. With a rigid sense of right and wrong and the swagger to back it up, Harvey’s idealism and single-minded quest for justice will ironically and tragically transform him into one of Gotham’s most feared supervillains, Two-Face.
the car crash will be fun to watch at least
>>The adopted son of Bruce Wayne. Despite the murder of his biological parents
So Dick/Jason without Dick/Jason?
Can't wait for
>Another redhead bites the bullets
Pourquoi? No really, why? This just reminds me of that comic panel of picrel.
>Clever and adept at reading human nature
What the fuck does this even mean? Bro if he's the Orcale of this team...
They can't. WB doesn't allow multiple versions of the same character save in special cases and the Titans shows on HBO Max is already using Dick, Jason, Tim and is gearing up for Damian.
At least Gotham managed to go it’s entire run without saying “batman” or “joker” and absolutely work around it
Wait, is Harvey becoming Two-Face AFTER Batman dies?
Feels like confirmation Batman isn’t actually dead
What the hell is that thing? Is that pic real?
I feel like that would be the plot twist at the end.
Sounds like they turned FanFiction.Net upside down and gave it a shake to see what tumbled out.
Still wild that it's not enough anymore to be a gay teen
That’s insulting to FanFiction.Net
With so many Batman-without-Batman shows WB shits out, you would think they would have tried adapting Gotham Central.
God this all sounds fucking horrible.
This looks like a shitshow you'd expect from CW. After a flaming pile of shit that was Batwoman, you'd think they'll rethink a few things.
>The adopted son of Bruce Wayne
Why not just use one of the twenty other kids Bruce has adopted over the years?
Misha... How far you've fallen...
that's pretty much what the idea behind Gotham was, but then they decided it had to have everyone else in it
Are we really pretending Supernatural was high art now?
Okay but Gotham was great
Nope, Titans already used them.
This is Mortal Kombat Cole Young levels of dumb.
Also THAT'S CLEARLY THE SECRET MAIN BAD GUY.
didn't say otherwise
>End of Season One
>Hey Turner! Where are you going now?
>Bludhaven? What the hell is in Bludhaven?
What were they thinking?
They didn't want a white guy to be the lead. Yet they didn't bother expanding on Liu Kang and Kung Lao's roles to fill the gap. That would have felt more natural, at least. Even in the 90s movie, Johnny was more the comic relief. Liu Kang defeated the villain, and hooked up with the princess. But no. They didn't think audiences would accept badass martial artists on a mission to save the world and had to shoehorn in some weird family angle with a new OC.
If they don't pull Annihilation in sequel and kill him off in first 5 minutes, I don't think I would care for it even for Johnny
>spend over a decade doing CW shit
>continue doing CW shit
it's a lateral move
Yep. From the upcoming LGBT special.
Is there going to be a team of Barbara's former roommates now?
>Every fucking thread
You're reaching cope levels that shouldn't even be possible.
>Teen Titans but Suicide Squad?
More like DC's Descendants.
>forges an unlikely alliance with the children of Batman’s enemies
They just need one more to complete the team.
He DID join at its peak.
What is it with trying to make Batman shows that get rid of, kill off, or otherwise remove Batman?
Earth Prime or different?
Because Warner's movie division doesn't let them use Batman. If you notice a lot of these series still tease Batman as being around (I guarantee Season 1 will end with something like "Bruce isn't really dead, guys!") so people think they'll get Batman, but they never do.
