Fox Plans On Using Gotham To Build The Bat!

Fox Plans On Using Gotham To Build The Bat!

Back in September Fox announced that they were developing a Gotham TV Series that will follow Detective James Gordon and tell his origins and those of the famous city’s villains that have defined it for the last 75 years. 

The original show announcement was described as an origin story for Commissioner Gordon and the villains with Batman not being a part of the series. During their Television Critics Association panel Fox Chairman Kevin Reilly announced yesterday that the series will include all of the classic Batman villains and heroes, including a young Bruce Wayne.

“The show will arc a young Bruce Wayne from a child (around 12) into the final episode of the series, when he will put on the cape.
 – Kevin Reilly, Fox Chairman

DC Comics is currently exploring Batman’s origins in the Scott Snyder Zero Year story arc in Batman. Whether or not Snyder’s arc will influence any of Gotham isn’t known. What we do know is that we can also look forward to seeing villains like The Riddler, Catwoman, The Penguin, and the Dark Knight’s most known rogue, The Joker.

“We will see how they get to become who they are as Gotham is teetering on the edge. It is an operatic soap that has a slightly larger-than-life quality.”
– Kevin Reilly, Fox Chairman

Reilly also confirmed that Gotham has a greenlighted pilot with Danny Cannon directing it. The series is from Warner Brothers TV with The Mentalist creator Bruno Heller at the helm is setting up a writer’s room in mid-February with the full intention to go to series.

Gotham isn’t the only TV series that WBTV has in the works with the Flash racing over to The CW this fall and as Comic Related recently reported that NBC Greenlights Constantine Series.
