Supernatural’s Misha Collins to Play Harvey Dent in Gotham Knights Series


The CW’s Gotham Knights series has found its Two-Face. The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Misha Collins (Supernatural) has just signed on to appear in the Gotham Knights pilot as Gotham City District Attorney Harvey Dent, the man who becomes the two-faced supervillain in the original comic books. Whether he has the same fate in Gotham Knights remains to be seen, but it seems more likely than not if the series gets picked up.

A logline for the pilot reads: “Gotham Knights is set in a Gotham City reeling from the murder of Bruce Wayne. His rebellious 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.”

The Gotham Knights pilot is written by Batwoman’s Chad Fiveash, James Stoteraux, and Natalie Abrams. The cast also includes Olivia Rose Keegan, Navia Robinson, Fallon Smythe, and Tylier DiChiara. Fiveash and Stoteraux are executive producing with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden. Danny Cannon will also executive produce along with directing the pilot. Abrams is a co-executive producer. The show is a collaboration between Warner Bros. TV and Berlanti Productions.

In a tweet confirming his casting, Collins posted an image of Aaron Eckhart’s Two-Face from The Dark Knight and wrote, “I’ve asked if my version of the character could be wearing a beige trench coat over the grey suit. (I’m just not sure I’ll be comfortable in front of a camera without one.)”

Collins is referring to his character from Supernatural, Castiel, who was often seen in his trademark beige trench coat. His casting on Gotham Knights reunites him with The CW following his former co-star Jared Padalecki doing the same with his role on Walker. Collins played Castiel in 12 of Supernatural‘s overall 15 seasons. Last year, Collins also appeared in the Prime Video film Encounter with Riz Ahmed and Octavia Spencer. His other TV work includes 24, ER, and The Venture Bros.

Gotham Knights Is Unconnected to the Upcoming Video Game

Gotham Knights Video Game Trailer Reveals First Gameplay, 2021 Release Date Announced

It’s said that the Gotham Knights TV show pilot is not a Batwoman spinoff, though it comes from some of the same members of the creative team. The show also is not connected to the upcoming video game of the same name that has been generating a lot of attention in the gaming community. While they’re separate from one another, the pilot and the video game do share similar plots, exploring a version of Gotham City that calls for other superheroes to rise in the absence of Batman’s presence.

There’s a chance The CW passes on Gotham Knights as a series if the pilot does not sell executives on a full series order. Casting someone like Misha Collins as an iconic character is a good start and a promising update, but it remains to be seen what ultimately happens with the potential show’s future. In the meantime, The CW has just given a bunch of its current shows renewals, including other big-name DC programs like The Flash and Superman & Lois.
