Gotham Knights premieres on The CW on March 14, and to say that there's a lot of excitement for the series...well, that would be a lie. From the start, fans have been left confused about everything from the title - which is exactly the same as a video game released last year - to the fact it will revolve around a character called Turner Hayes. 

Despite the fact he's surrounded by many of the teenagers who have accompanied Batman into battle, he's a newly created ward for Bruce Wayne who, in this reality (not the Arrowverse, mind you) is framed for the Dark Knight's murder. 

There's nothing wrong with introducing a character who didn't debut on the page; Harley Quinn in Batman: The Animated Series is proof of that. However, the fact that none of these young heroes will suit up is, quite frankly, perplexing, and some character portraits doing the rounds on Twitter drive home how painfully generic the lack of superhero costumes makes them all look. 

It goes without saying we have nothing against this young cast, and we're sure they all hoped to find Grant Gustin and Stephen Amell levels of fame by starring in a DC TV show. We also can't help but root for Supernatural alum Misha Collins, but it feels like this series is, unfortunately, doomed to fail.

We'll find out one way or another later this month, but for now, you can see how the likes of The Joker's Daughter has been translated to screen - the purple top and green jacket is the giveaway, you see... - below. 

In Gotham Knights, in the wake 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. And as the city's most wanted criminals, this renegade band of misfits must fight to clear their names. 

However, 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 places as this team of mismatched fugitives will become its next generation of saviours.

The series stars Oscar Morgan as Turner Hayes, Anna Lore as Stephanie Brown, Olivia Rose Keegan as Duela Dent, Navia Robinson as Carrie Kelley, Fallon Smythe as Harper Row, and Tyler DiChiara as Cullen Row.

Gotham Knights premieres on The CW on March 14 right after Superman & Lois.

Damn he wasn't wrong.

Typical dull, Millennial teen pandering CW bullshit. I'm not watching and none of us should because as the lesson we should have learned from Velma still stands, hatewatching only gives the show a second season.

After everything's that's been canceled, why move forward with this?

If Batgirl can get canceled before it's released then so can this.

On one hand I want this cancelled asap since it looks like hot garbage. On the other hand this is the only live action Stephanie Brown we’re getting for a while and I want her to be good in it

Just opened this article to comment on how pathetic you are Josh. This is what, your third article where you throw a hissy fit about something within the title? There's the crap you pulled previously and then there's your blatant attempts to get comment sections "fired" up. Seriously, have you no shame?

Whatever makes you money though I suppose, especially when you're being enabled and allowed to continue ruining this site's "reputation."

Shout-out to @KingPatel & @RorMachine for being solid contributors that makes this site still bearable.

Lmao. This show is likely to be a one and done season. When Gunn and Safran were asked about it, they had no comment. That's pretty telling.
