With the series set to premiere alongside the third-season return of Superman & Lois on March 14th, there are a lot of DCU fans keeping a watchful eye on Chad Fiveash, James Stoteraux & Natalie Abrams‘ upcoming The CW series Gotham Knights. And Supernatural fans are keeping the show on their radar after it was announced that Misha Collins had been cast in the role of Harvey Dent. Because, as we all know, when you have Harvey Dent, then you know his twisted persona Two-Face isn’t too far behind. But with the series taking place after the death of Bruce Wayne/Batman and Collins shows still in Dent mode, we were wondering if the change would happen early on or as a build-up leading into a possible second season. Well, Collins appeared to answer that question on New Year’s Eve night by posting a time-elapsed video of himself going through makeup & effects work for what’s either his turn towards Two-Face or a hidden “Jonah Hex” project no one knows anything about. But since Gotham Knights is still filming, we’re putting our chips on The CW series…
Here’s a look at Collins’ Instagram post showing off just how much time he’s spending in the chair to do right by Dent:
The CW’s Gotham Knights: What & Who You Need To Know
Written by Fiveash, Stoteraux, and Abrams, The CW’s upcoming Gotham Knights picks up in the aftermath of Bruce Wayne’s murder, with his rebellious adopted son forging 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. But in a Gotham with no Dark Knight to protect it, the city descends into the most dangerous it’s ever been. 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. Fallon Smythe (Grown-ish), Tyler DiChiara (Relish), Olivia Rose Keegan (High School Musical: The Musical: The Series), Navia Robinson (Raven’s Home), Oscar Morgan (Master of the Air), Misha Collins (Supernatural), Anna Lore (All American), Rahart Adams (Foursome) Lauren Stamile (Complications), and Damon Dayoub (Stitchers) star.
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 (Morgan) is framed for killing the Caped Crusader, along with the children of some of Batman’s enemies: Duela (Keegan), an unpredictable fighter and skilled thief who was born in Arkham Asylum and abandoned by her father, Harper Row (Smythe), a streetwise and acerbic engineer who can fix anything, and her brother Cullen Row (DiChiara), a clever transgender teen who is tired of being polite and agreeable. With the charismatic and hard-charging District Attorney Harvey Dent (Collins) and the GCPD hot on their trail, Turner will rely on allies, including his best friend and formidable coder Stephanie Brown (Lore) and unlikely Batman sidekick Carrie Kelley (Robinson). 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.
Smythe’s Harper Row: 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. After years of hiding his true self from an abusive parent, DiChiara’s transgender teen Cullen Row is tired of being polite and agreeable. Clever and adept at reading human nature, Cullen is ready to fight his own battles. Dashing with a swagger, Collins’ Harvey Dent is Gotham’s charismatic, hard-charging District Attorney. With a rigid sense of right and wrong, Harvey’s idealism and his single-minded quest for justice will ironically and tragically transform him into one of Gotham’s most feared supervillains, Two-Face. Lore’s Stephanie Brown is someone whose sarcasm is matched only by her intellect. She was raised on a steady diet of brain teasers and puzzles and honed her skills to become a formidable coder.
Confident and charismatic, Adams’ Brody has the brains and the looks — and he knows it. However, his entitled attitude covers his insecurity and jealousy of anyone who rivals him. Dayoub’s Lincoln March is a charismatic, self-made industrialist with designs on becoming Gotham’s next mayor; the only thing more important to Lincoln than his legacy is the power he wields as one of the city’s elite. Old-money elegant, Stamile’s Rebecca plays the dutiful “Good Wife” to her business mogul husband. A caring and supportive mother, one would never know she’s trapped in an unhappy marriage. Produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, Fiveash and Stoteraux exec produce alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden. Abrams is also a co-executive producer, while Danny Cannon directed and executive produced the pilot. The series is based on characters created for DC by Bob Kane with Bill Finger.
