It was a few months ago that it was announced that Supernatural favourite Misha Collins is to star in a new Batman TV show and its now been confirmed that CW has ordered a full season of the story.

GOTHAM KNIGHTS in which Collins will play Harvey Dent will be set in a new Gotham stunned by the murder of Bruce Wayne.

His adopted son (Oscar Morgan) forms an alliance with the children of Batman’s enemies when they’re all framed for killing the Caped Crusader. With Gotham as dangerous as it’s ever been, the group of fugitives could be the city’s next saviors.

Danny Cannon will direct the pilot.
