The roles of Carrie Kelley, Duela Dent, and Turner Hayes have been cast for The CW’s Gotham Knights pilot.
The CW’s Gotham Knights is gearing up to start filming next month. More details on which DC characters will be part of the series are starting to come out, with Fallon Smythe and Tyler DiChiara leading Gotham Knights as Harper and Cullen Row. Variety has now shared that Navia Robinson joins the series as Carrie Kelley, Olivia Rose Keegan will play Duela Dent, and Oscar Morgan has been cast as Turner Hayes.
The Dark Knight Returns character Carrie Kelley, played by Navia Robinson, is the most significant addition to Gotham Knights, said to be “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.” The CW series will mark Carrie Kelley’s live-action debut.
Meanwhile, Olivia Rose Keegan’s Duela Dent 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.” Duela Dent has also appeared in Batwoman, played by Alessandra Torresani.
The upcoming series will also feature Oscar Morgan as 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.”
Here is the premise for The CW’s 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. 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.
