A week ago, The CW revealed the pilot for the much-awaited Gotham Knights, a DC-verse drama that would take place after the death of Gotham’s guardian, Batman. Misha Collins, well known for his role as Castiel in Supernatural, will return to The CW network to assume the character of Harvey Dent in the next TV series.
Collins has caught the internet by storm with his post, which revealed his position as Gotham’s fallen-from-grace white knight Harvey Dent. He also added a small jest to his post, recalling his character in Supernatural, asking for a similar costume in front of the camera.
In the tweet, he utilized an image of Aaron Eckhart’s Harvey Dent from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. Since the news, social media platforms have been filled with replies from enthusiastic fans.
Fans react to Misha Collins’ announcement.
Misha Collins was one of the most popular characters in The CW’s Supernatural, and fans are tremendously thrilled to see the actor as Harvey Dent. This will also be the first television role for the actor since the long-running program finished in 2020.

Apart from Supernatural, Misha Collins’ other credits include ER, CSI: NY, Nip/Tuck, and Timeless. The actor has acquired a cult following with his appearance on Supernatural.
What is Gotham Knights About?
Gotham Knights is a program set in the DC-verse following the death of Bruce Wayne. When Wayne’s adopted son is framed for the death of Gotham’s Dark Knight, he forms an odd alliance with the offspring of Batman’s foes. This motley crew takes on the mantle of Gotham Knights to battle crime in the streets of Gotham without a Batman.
This strange offshoot will include Oscar Morgan, Olivia Rose Keegan, and Navia Robinson in the key roles. They join the already announced cast of Fallon Smythe and Tyler DiChiara. The remainder of the cast has not been revealed yet, but the news should be out shortly as the release date approaches near.
The show’s pilot will be broadcast on October 25, 2022, on the CW channel.
