According to Film Music Reporter, Fox's Batman prequel series has found a composer in Graeme Revell. Having previously collaborated with the pilot's director and executive producer Danny Cannon on the first season of CSI: Miami, Revell has also worked on the likes of Daredevil, Pitch Black/Chronicles of Riddick, Pineapple Express, From Dusk Till Dawn and Sin City.



Before there was Batman, there was GOTHAM. Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker? GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), GOTHAM follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time. Growing up in Gotham City’s surrounding suburbs, JAMES GORDON (Ben McKenzie, “Southland,” “The O.C.”) romanticized the city as a glamorous and exciting metropolis where his late father once served as a successful district attorney. Now, two weeks into his new job as a Gotham City detective and engaged to his beloved fiancée, BARBARA KEAN (Erin Richards, “Open Grave,” “Breaking In”), Gordon is living his dream – even as he hopes to restore the city back to the pure version he remembers it was as a kid. Brave, honest and ready to prove himself, the newly-minted detective is partnered with the brash, but shrewd police legend HARVEY BULLOCK (Donal Logue, “Sons of Anarchy,” “Terriers,” “Vikings,” “Copper”), as the two stumble upon the city’s highest-profile case ever: the murder of local billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne. At the scene of the crime, Gordon meets the sole survivor: the Waynes’ hauntingly intense 12-year-old son, BRUCE (David Mazouz, “Touch”), toward whom the young detective feels an inexplicable kinship. Moved by the boy’s profound loss, Gordon vows to catch the killer. As he navigates the often-underhanded politics of Gotham’s criminal justice system, Gordon will confront imposing gang boss FISH MOONEY (Jada Pinkett Smith, “The Matrix” franchise, “HawthoRNe”), and many of the characters who will become some of fiction’s most renowned, enduring villains, including a teenaged SELINA KYLE/the future CATWOMAN (acting newcomer Camren Bicondova) and OSWALD COBBLEPOT/THE PENGUIN (Robin Lord Taylor, “The Walking Dead”).While the crime drama will follow Gordon’s turbulent and singular rise through the Gotham City police department, led by Police Captain SARAH ESSEN (Zabryna Guevara, “Burn Notice”), it also will focus on the unlikely friendship Gordon forms with the young heir to the Wayne fortune, who is being raised by his unflappable butler, ALFRED (Sean Pertwee, “Camelot,” “Elementary”). It is a friendship that will last them all of their lives, playing a crucial role in helping the young boy eventually become the crusader he’s destined to be.GOTHAM is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment and is produced by Warner Bros. Television. Executive producer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist”) wrote the pilot, which was directed and executive-produced by Emmy Award nominee Danny Cannon (the “CSI” franchise, “Nikita”). John Stephens will serve as an executive producer on the series.

I'm not too familiar with him or his work, but... okay.

Great choice. It`s actually funny -> I always believed that if they ever made a TV show about Batman, he should be the one to score it. So my wish came true, I guess.

Don't forget his score for The Crow. That's why most people hire him for these projects. Not that it'll help.
Good god this show will suck harder than Schumacher sucking on a bat-nipple.

Alright....calm down BatManiac.

BatManiac....calm down.

Speaking of Daredevil, don't they start shooting this month? I'm already looking forward to the leaked photos.

Awww shit.

You just know BatManiac is just waiting for the Gotham pilot to leak...


....so he can....review it!!!


McGee - 7/2/2014, 3:10 AM
The Gotham pilot is like a kid in High School that talked shit on BatManiac....but then Bats heard about it and straight up told this kid he was gonna kick his ass after school.

Now...the bell has rung to go home, and BatManiac is waiting outside.

Sooner or later....the Gotham pilot has to come out.


Mothchild - 7/2/2014, 3:25 AM
I hope he nails it.
BatManiac - 7/2/2014, 4:21 AM
"You thought you could shit on the Batman mythos, Gotham? Is that what you THOUGHT you could do? Nah, son..."



"... and this shit ain't even over yet. You wait until after that last bell has rung you little punk bitch!"

How ironic. Ben Affleck was Daredevil and now he's Batman.
McGee - 7/2/2014, 4:54 AM
Stop it BatManiac! You're scaring the Gotham pilot!

ruadh - 7/2/2014, 6:51 AM
Duke beat me to it, The Crow was definitely the first time I took notice of him.

Ethan...that's not really irony.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 7/2/2014, 8:10 AM
I'm cool with this
DCGuy - 7/2/2014, 9:01 AM
nice
Mrcool210 - 7/2/2014, 9:55 AM
not a bad choice, although aside from the main theme the score to daredevil to me was pretty forgettable, lets hope its not the case here.
RobtimusPrime - 7/2/2014, 11:37 AM
I swear. I only come to these, Gotham threads to read, Batmaniac tear this Smallville retread a new asshole. Pleas Batmaniac don't give up the fight.

I don't know how good or bad the composer of Dare Devil is but i just have to ask does whoever makes these decisions not allowed to go on the internet? You would think if anyone at Warner Bros had more than 2 brain cells they'd figure out the need to distance themselves from Dare Devil as much as possible
