Fox Moving Ahead With GOTHAM TV Series; Will Focus On "Detective" Gordon Before BATMAN
We're all extremely familiar with Commissioner Jim Gordon and his relationship with the Caped Crusader, but a new television series being developed by Warner Bros. and aired on Fox, will explore his time as a detective in Gotham long before he ever met Batman. Read on for details!
Just minutes after the first episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. aired on ABC, Warner Bros. have released a piece of news - via Deadline - which should have little to no trouble in stealing the spotlight! In what is being described as "one of the biggest drama deals this season", Fox has nabbed the rights to Gotham and have already given the show - from Warner Bros. and Mentalist creator Bruno Heller - a series commitment. However, rather than focusing on Batman (who will NOT be a part of the series) or any of his superpowered allies, the show will tell the story of a young Commissioner James Gordon. While it's likely that we'll see some familiar faces from the DC Universe, Gotham will feature a young Gordon as a detective before he meets the Caped Crusader and takes control of the police department. The seemingly official logline states that it will tell, "the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham famous" So, who wants to bet that this will be somehow linked to Batman/Superman?
