The CW's Gotham Knights pilot has added Olivia Rose Keegan, Navia Robinson, and Oscar Morgan to its cast, joining the previously announced Fallon Smythe and Tyler DiChiara.
Keegan (Days of our Lives) is set to play a version of Duela Dent, who is described as "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 and skilled thief."
Robinson (Raven's Home) has been cast as Carrie Kelley, aka the first female Robin. "Fearless, idealistic and plucky as hell, Carrie talked her way into being Batman’s unlikely sidekick. 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."
Finally, Morgan (Trauma) will portray Turner Hayes. "Despite the murder of his biological parents, Turner remains resilient and driven to live up to his billionaire adoptive father’s name. While charming and soulful, Turner has never quite felt comfortable in this world of wealth and privilege."
We found out earlier this week that Fallon Smythe (Grown-Ish) will play Bluebird, and Tyler DiChiara (Relish) will play her brother Cullen Row.
The original premise of the Gotham Knights comic was to focus on the adventures of Batman's extended family, such as Alfred, Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin, Oracle, and Catwoman, among others. Eventually, the series expanded to include some of the Dark Knight's foes, and it sounds like this take on the story will lean into that concept by introducing the sons and daughters of several well-known villains.
You can check out the show's updated logline below.
"The one-hour drama takes place in 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. 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."
