According to Deadline, Rahart Adams (‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’) has been added to the cast of ‘Gotham Knights’, upcoming live-action adaptation based on DC’s heroes.
Adams will play a mysterious character known only as Brody.
Described as “a confident and charismatic young man, Brody has above-average intelligence and remarkable looks, which makes him somewhat arrogant. However, he hides an insecure personality and is jealous of anyone who tries to rival his attributes.”
It is worth remembering that Knute Brody was a criminal alias used by several members of the bat-family, including Dick Grayson, Tim Drake and Barbara Gordon.
In any case, it remains to be seen if Brody is a character created exclusively for the series or if he will be revealed as a hero or villain known to the public.
