The series stars Winston Duke, known for playing M’Baku in Marvel‘s Black Panther film, as Bruce Wayne himself. “A serial killer known as The Harvester terrorizes Gotham City, but Batman is not coming to the rescue. In fact, Bruce Wayne has no memory of being the Caped Crusader at all…” Without Batman on the case, Detective Barbara Gordon, played by Gina Rodriguez, must turn to “Gotham’s second smartest detective: The Riddler” played by Hasan Minhaj.
