When The Flash ends this season, the DC/CW universe as we’ve recognized it for greater than a decade shall be no extra. However that doesn’t imply The CW is completed with DC. Not when Gotham Knights—the TV collection, and never Rocksteady’s lately launched video recreation—is coming in March, and right here’s a brand new, extremely CW-ish trailer as proof.

Principally, it’s only a bunch of indignant/quippy early 20-somethings preventing… crime? I suppose?

Regardless of the presence of Supernatural’s Misha Collins as Harvey Dent, it’s not going to fill the Legends of Tomorrow-sized gap in my coronary heart, particularly as a result of I used to be beneath the impression that the collection could be specializing in Damian Wayne, Bruce Wayne’s organic son, as he tried to unravel his father’s homicide. So think about my shock once I checked out the Wikipedia page to find the star is completely random Bruce Wayne adoptee named “Turner Hayes.”

Actually, CW? None of Batman’s 4 canonical Robins had been adequate to star in your present? Though you have got Carrie Kelley, Stephanie Brown, Harper Row, and the Joker’s maybe-daughter, Duela Dent, as characters? We’ll see if this motley crew can do something aside from glower, make out, and pout at one another when Gotham Knights premieres on March 14.
