Cameras have started rolling on Gotham Knights, and a video taken by a fan on the set of The CW pilot confirms that Bruce Wayne has been cast. The entire premise of the series is that the Dark Knight dies, setting the stage for a group of teenage heroes to pick up where he left off protecting Gotham City. 

Still, it makes sense for him to appear in the pilot and it looks like these scenes will focus on Bruce and his adopted son, Cullen Row (Tyler DiChiara). While there had been speculation that Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, or Tim Drake might be this show's lead, it appears The CW has decided to create a new character and surround him with familiar faces from the comic books like Spoiler and Bluebird. 

There's no word on who is playing Bruce in Gotham Knights, but based on past experience, don't be surprised if he's left hidden in shadow. One thing we can say for sure is that he won't suit up as Batman because, for whatever reason, the Caped Crusader remains mostly off-limits to The CW.

Check out the set video below:

Written by Batwoman scribes Chad Fiveash, James Stoteraux and Natalie Abrams, 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 been.

However, hope comes from the most unexpected of places as this team of mismatched fugitives will become its next generation of saviours known, of course, as the Gotham Knights.

Danny Cannon will direct and executive produce the pilot, though it's yet to be ordered to series by The CW. With cameras now rolling, we're hoping to soon see what these young heroes look like. Remember, the show isn't expected to be set in the Arrowverse and will likely be standalone.

Another Batman? Really?
Dope21 - 4/19/2022, 6:37 AM
@Forthas - it's DC😂😂😂

What did you expect. Cannabolizing their brand with horse shit.
JohnCastillo - 4/19/2022, 9:29 AM
@Forthas - I mean the show’s called Gotham Knights so we should have assumed he would make an appearance.. also if it’s anything like the game than he will die and that will make the other Bat Family “Gotham Knights” join forces.
Forthas - 4/19/2022, 10:03 AM
@JohnCastillo - Part of the appeal of the other Bat family members is their relationship to Batman. Don't be too sure they don't plan for Batman to appear in flashbacks.

Yeah.. F this.

Time for TheCW to dig their grave next to DCUniverse

Long live HBOMax.

Cullen Row is Bruce's adopted son in this? Was that ever the case in the comics? What about Harper?
Odin - 4/19/2022, 10:54 AM
@AC1 - Well according to other sources, Cullen Row is not Bruce Wayne's adopted son in this. Oscar Morgan will play a new character called Turner Hayes, who is Bruce Wayne's adopted son. He seems original character but there are some speculation that he might turn out to be Tim Drake later on. Kind of like he was in withness protection in New 52.

I wonder if we’ll get Clownhunter in this? He’s easy enough to adapt to live action
OmegaBlack13 - 4/19/2022, 12:36 PM
@WruceBayne - Seems like he’d be perfect for this type of thing

Now this, I'm not into. I'd prefer something more like this, if at all:

Matthew Daddario as Dick Grayson/Nightwing

Allison Scagliotti as Barbara Gordon/Oracle/Batgirl

Niko Guardado as Jason Todd/Red Hood

Matthew Sato as Tim Drake/Red Robin

Shelby Bain as Stephanie Brown/Spoiler

Niles Fitch as Duke Thomas/The Signal

Ashley Liao as Cassandra Cain/Batgirl/Black Bat

Azia Dinea Hale as Isabella Ortiz/Robin/Robina

@dagenspear - I'll give you this...
You've assembled the most "CW" looking cast I've ever seen.
dagenspear - 4/20/2022, 1:31 AM
@AmySabadini - I think they all have solid looks for their parts.

Why is DC allowing so many Bruce Wayne(s) on tv but no Batman? Was there ever a serious answer to this?
SpiderBloke2099 - 4/19/2022, 2:34 PM
@Darth258 - BeCaUsE BaTmAn'S a MoViE cHaRaCtEr is their answer.

Oh look at that a new DC show featuring Batman characters, AND ITS GONE...
