CW Gotham Knights show from Batwoman writers in the works

A “Gotham Knights” TV series is in the works at The CW from three “Batwoman” writers, Variety has learned.

The project hails from writers Natalie Abrams, James Stoteraux, and Chad Fiveash. Stoteraux and Fiveash are executive producers on the show, with Abrams co-executive producing. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden of Berlanti Productions will also executive produce. Warner Bros. Television is the studio.

“Gotham Knights” is based on the characters created for DC by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. It is not a spinoff of “Batwoman,” nor is it tied to the upcoming “Gotham Knights” video game.

In the show, 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.

Fiveash and Stoteraux are currently executive producers on “Batwoman,” which premiered its third season in October. Their other credits include “Gotham,” “Krypton,” and “The Vampire Diaries.” They are repped by Verve.

Abrams was formerly a writer for Entertainment Weekly. As a TV writer, she has written for “Batwoman,” “Supergirl,” and “All American.”

“Gotham Knights” is the latest DC show at the CW from the Berlanti camp. In addition to “Batwoman,” Berlanti Productions currently produces “The Flash,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” “Stargirl,” and “Superman and Lois” for the broadcaster. Fellow DC shows “Arrow” and “Supergirl” recently ended.

He's not gay, he's bi.

Which of course means he'll be gay forever in fiction.

Yeah. In nearly every major media that has a bisexual character (which isn't much), the bi character will basically only have same sex relationships. And the fans will basically only be allowed to ship them with same sex characters as well.

Hell, in real life, I've had people literally tell me I am not a 'true bisexual' because I am in a monogamous relationship with the opposite sex. Basically, bisexuals are expected/forced to only turn to the same sex.

Always find this position hilarious. Especially in leu of the fact, that it is LGB who usually hold it. So much for being "tolerant", "accepting" and "going against stereotypes".

There's a lot of hypocrisy in the LGBT+ community definitely, but that applies to virtually any and every group in my observation, regardless of race, religion, politics. People just suck, and are self serving when they feel like it.

I always feel bad for my bi friends, be they male or female. They tend to always get it from both ends (Hah-hah-hah), catching all kinds of grief from both straight people and "regular" gay people. "You're not bisexual, you're just afraid to pick a side." Like, what? That's gotta be pretty exhausting to hear all the time.

This always baffles me, whenever the marginalized groups can't get along. You'd think they'd know how it feels and not give each other so much of a hard time. But then, I genuinely believe that human nature is inherently tribal. So there's that.

"from Batwoman writers".

'nuff said. Hard pass.


Also, stop beating around the bush and actually make a good Batman show. Stop with this 'Batman's missing' or 'this is after he died' ********.

I agree, but what I hate the most is a sheer arrogance of it: calling others out on their supposed bigotry, while being just as bigoted against people who technically belong to your own group.

Wouldn't surprise me one bit if the comics people were "encouraged" to go that route because they knew in advance this was coming, with a gay Tim Drake.

First Two Cast Members have been announced and the characters they play reak of the Wokeness from Batwoman not surprising

Fallon Smythe & Tyler DiChiara Join CW Pilot 'Gotham Knights'

Smythe plays Harper Row. Described as 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.

DiChiara portrays Cullen Row. After years of hiding his true self from an abusive parent, the transgender teen is tired of being polite and agreeable. Clever and adept at reading human nature, Cullen is ready to fight his own battles.

Duela Dent and Carrie Kelly have been cast

Quote:
Olivia Rose Keegan will play Duela. 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.

Navia Robinson will play Carrie Kelley. 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.
https://variety.com/2022/tv/news/got...an-1235200296/

Niva Robinson is black so Carrie Kelley is black in this show another redhead turned black.

Batman didn't exist and was never mentioned until the Batwoman show started... then it turns out he has been around the whole time, except he left Gotham and has been missing for years or something. Now he will come back to die, I guess? Assuming this is Arrowverse?

Spoiler Stephanie Brown is in this show

Quote:
Deadline reports that All American actress Anna Lore is the latest addition to the cast of The CW's Gotham Knights pilot. She's landed a lead role as Stephanie Brown, a character in the comic books who has gone by Spoiler and Robin. In the main DC Universe (outside of The Dark Knight Returns), she was the first female superhero to hold the mantle.
