Just in case you thought the CW was done making shows based on DC characters, the network unveils a first look at their newest show, Gotham Knights focused on Gotham City after the death of Batman.
The photo was posted to Twitter by showrunner Natalie Abrams as well as the official Gotham Knights Twitter page. This first look shows off the main cast members including Oscar Morgan as Turner Hayes, Tyler DiChiara as Cullen Bow, Navia Robinson as Carrie Kelley, Fallon Smythe as Harper Row, and Olivia Rose Keegan as Duela.

Not to be confused with the video game, Gotham Knights, the show is nevertheless centered around the Dark Knight being killed. The official synopsis is as follows:
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 (Oscar Morgan, “De Son Vivant”) is framed for killing the Caped Crusader, along with the children of some of Batman’s enemies: Duela (Olivia Rose Keegan, “Days of Our Lives”), an unpredictable fighter and skilled thief who was born in Arkham Asylum and abandoned by her father, Harper Row (Fallon Smythe, “grown-ish”), a streetwise and acerbic engineer who can fix anything, and her brother Cullen Row (Tyler DiChiara, “The Virgin of Highland Park”), a clever transgender teen who is tired of being polite and agreeable. With the charismatic and hard-charging District Attorney Harvey Dent (Misha Collins, “Supernatural”) and the GCPD hot on their trail, Turner will rely on allies including his best friend and formidable coder Stephanie Brown (Anna Lore, “All American”) , and unlikely Batman sidekick Carrie Kelley (Navia Robinson, “Raven’s Home”). 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.
To be clear, Gotham Knights doesn’t take place with the well-established “Arrowverse.” That said, Supergirl and Black Lightning didn’t either, yet were able to take place in crossover events like Crisis on Infinite Earths. It wouldn’t be surprising if Gotham Knights somehow made a cameo appearance in one of the Arrowverse shows.
