On the heels of the first wave of casting announcements for Gotham Knights, The CW has revealed the second group of actors set to join the DC pilot. Oscar Morgan, Olivia Rose Keegan, and Navia Robinson are set as potential series regulars. The casting announcement also contains tantalizing details about the series itself, which is not based on the forthcoming Gotham Knights video game and is not a spin-off of the network’s existing DC shows.
Morgan will play Turner Hayes, Batman’s adopted son. While he’s driven and wants to uphold Batman’s legacy, he doesn’t fit in among the billionaire class. Keegan is Duela, the daughter of two villains who was born in Arkham Asylum. Duela has had to go it alone, becoming a resilient fighter. Finally, Robinson will star as Carrie Kelley, Batman’s perky sidekick. They join the previously announced Tyler DiChiara and Fallon Smythe.
Gotham Knights will follow a group of renegade children of Gotham’s most wanted criminals as they team up with Batman’s adopted son to solve the hero’s murder, which they are framed for. It will be co-created by Natalie Abrams, James Stoteraux, and Chad Fiveash of Batwoman. The pilot is set to film in April, and no series order has been announced yet.
