The CW series Gotham Knights added Anna Lore as Stephanie Brown. In the comic books, Stephanie Brown adopted the identities of several superheroes. Stephanie Brown has been Spoiler, Robin, and Batgirl.
Writer Chuck Dixon and artist Tom Lyle co-created Stephanie Brown in 1992. She debuted in Detective Comics No. 647.
Lore actually isn’t the first actress to play Stephanie Brown. Morgan Kohan portrayed Stephanie Brown in the second season of Batwoman. Greg Berlanti produces both Batwoman and Gotham Knights for the CW. Nevertheless, this isn’t the same Stephanie Brown.
Gotham Knights Lands Anna Lore As Stephanie Brown
Lore joins Navia Robinson, Fallon Smythe, Tyler DiChiara, Olivia Rose Keegan, and Oscar Morgan for Gotham Knights.
Gotham Knights is a series planned to delve into the premise of “What would Gotham City be without Batman?” The hour-long pilot will open with an investigation on Batman’s death.
The investigation points to a group of young individuals, including Batman’s son, as suspects. The story progresses as the adoptive son gains the support of the children of Batman’s enemies to solve the mystery. It is the only way they will be able to clear their names.
As the group uncovers the mystery and who framed them for the murder, they become the team that takes on the responsibility that the Caped Crusader left behind.
If you are wondering if this is related to the upcoming game this October 2022, unfortunately, it isn’t. Gotham Knights differs from the game. Furthermore, it exists separately from the DCEU or Matt Reeves’ The Batman. In other words, it’s in its own pocket universe.
Robinson is Carrie Kelley, who is also the first female Robin. Writer/artist Frank Miller created her. Kelley first appeared in 1986’s The Dark Knight Returns.
Smythe is Harper Row. Also known as Bluebird, the genius engineer that can fix anything.
Tyler DiChiara is Cullen Row, Harper’s brother who is good at reading people.
Olivia Rose Keegan is Duela Dent, the fighter and thief in the group. Dent was originally Two-Face’s daughter in the comic books.
Oscar Morgan is Turner Hayes. He’s the adopted son of a billionaire who never felt he fit in among the people of wealth and privilege. Hayes would appear to be an original character for Gotham Knights. However, in the comic books, there is a character similar to his background and name: William Hayes. William Hayes is also known as Harm and one of the villains in the comics.
What spiraling turmoil will Gotham City face now that the Dark Knight is dead? Who will the city turn to in its darkest of days?
Could this group of youth be the answer?
