It looks like the cats for Gotham Knights is continuing to grow, as The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that the CW series has found its Stephanie Brown. All American‘s Anna Lore has joined the production of an already stacked cast that consists of Morgan Olivia, Navia Robinson, Fallon Smythe and many more. They even recently added Mischa Collins, another CW veteran, as the Harvey Dent. Her casting also confirms our piece from February that she would join the production.
The series will explore a Gotham that just went through the murder of Bruce Wayne, as his adopted son must form an alliance with his rogue’s gallery’s kids. Lore‘s Brown is teased as sarcastic but very smart. There’s no word if she’ll embrace her alter ego of Spoiler, as she was the daughter of Cluemaster in the comics. The character has appeared in CW’s Batwoman played by Morgan Kohan. Mae Whitman also voiced the character in the animated series Young Justice.
It’ll be interesting to see who else might get cast for the series, as there are still some open spots to potentially get filled. Gotham Knights is also getting a video game adaptation but with a very different set of characters and storyline, as the only connection is the murder of Batman. It’s also not the only time the character was taken out of comission in some form or another in a CW series, as Batwoman did a similar storyline to keep him out of Gotham. Here’s hoping that Wayne gets one chance to live in one of these series.
