    The show got potential, if they make it dark and gritty, I'd check this before I'd check the shield.

    FOX's Gotham Is a Batman Origin Story and Will Have a Christopher Nolan-Esque Tone
    "Gotham on the brink."
    by Roth Cornet JANUARY 13, 2014

    Back in September, it was announced that FOX had given a straight-to-series order to a new live-action television series entitled Gotham, which was purportedly an origin story for Commissioner Gordon. Many of us were left wondering how the network planned to do a comic-based TV show without a superhero at its center. What would distinguish Gotham from another cop/detective series?

    At today's TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour Chairman of Entertainment at FOX Kevin Reilly revealed that this series would indeed function as an origin story for Batman.

    "This is an origin story for young Bruce Wayne," Reilly said, promising that all of the classic Batman characters and villains would make an appearance, including: The Penguin, The Riddler, Commissioner Gordon, and The Joker. This is a series about "Gotham on the brink" he said, and "how they all became who they were, what events led up to these characters becoming Catwoman [and so on]." The Chairman described the series as "operatic" and "larger-than-life."

    It will follow Bruce Wayne from childhood through his development into the Dark Night, with the final episode marking the moment when he puts on the cape. They're not certain what age young Bruce will be at this point, but Reilly estimates that he will be about 13 at the start of the series. "The actor will grow-up, if we do our job well he'll be a young man and ready [to be Batman] by the end," he said. "Which isn't to say we might not skip ahead."


    Reilly followed up by saying that this would be a serialized show that will function on its own, separate from the Warner Brothers DC cinematic universe. "We own all the rights.That's what we're licencing," he said. "They brought us the entire franchise for a very healthy licence fee. We're not negotiating this piece meal. We have all of the underlying Batman rights for the entire franchise for this series."

    He continued, saying, "That's what I like about this, it's not some sort of adjunct companion series. This is the Batman franchise, just backing it up. I think that gives it a real focus as to what the show is about and what stories we're telling."

    There will be no connection to the Batman/Bruce Wayne that Ben Affleck will be introducing in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel 2, tentatively titled Batman vs. Superman. "Warner Brothers manages the entire franchise and its one of their top global franchises of all," Reilly said."So there will be an awareness of both and we'll have to coordinate when we're in the market place, but the productions are not piggy-backing off one another."

    The series will be in the vein of the grittier tone that Christopher Nolan established in his Dark Knight trilogy, it will be very organic to that world, though Nolan will not have a direct connection to the production. We won't see Batman's cape and cowl till the series' conclusion, as mentioned, and it will be a slow reveal on the Supervillains alter-egos as well. "We're arcing to that," Reilly clarified. "We're not starting in that world where the villains are in costume. You see markers for it that are kind of delicious. You begin to see the evolution of the eccentricities that become those characters, but you really sort of arc there. We don't start out in capes and costumes."

    When asked if there is a possibility that they may spinoff additional characters, Reilly said that he "certainly hopes so." Adding, "Do I think we'll peel out The Riddler? I don't. There's a large tapestry of characters to service over many years. So I hope we can just keep it on for a long, long run."

    As the the number of episodes, Reilly jokes that, "Warner Brothers would like it to be 22 because they'd like as many as they can get," but no decisions have been made in regards to either the length of the series or a premiere date.

    The show begins staffing shortly, with scripts expected to quickly following.

    We will keep you updated as details on this series emerge.

    Cause then both the tv universe and movie universe have to connect constantly, and their hands become tied with what they can do. That's one of the main problems with agents of shield

    I'm expecting a lot out this series and if it's written properly, the shit will be the GOAT. I've always said that a series chronicling Bruce before he donned the cape and cowl would be the shit. I personally like how Gotham became the "Detroit," of the DC Universe, why Edward E. Nigna has an obsession with riddles, how will the writers not make the Penguin wack, will they incorporate the JSA for example, with the original Green Lantern be in it. Will The Reaper, (potna from Year 2,) be it. I just hope they don't give Mr. J a definitive origin. For me, the Joker works best when he doesn't have a definitive origin, and he's doing shit, to quote Alfred, "Just to see the world burn."

    Jada Pinkett Smith Cast as Gotham's Villain
    Matrix Reloaded star to play sadistic gangster in Fox drama.
    by Chris Tilly FEBRUARY 19, 2014

    Casting is ramping up on forthcoming TV series Gotham, with the show finding one of its villains in the shape of Jada Pinkett Smith.

    According to Deadline, Smith will play Fish Mooney, “an imposing, hot-headed and notoriously sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner with street smarts and almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book who is not one to be crossed.”

    It’s already been announced that Robin Lord Taylor will play Oswald Cobblepot, who in this version of the story is a low-level psychopath who works for Mooney.

    And as previously reported, Ben McKenzie will play the show’s lead, James Gordon, although there’s no word yet on when the show will screen on Fox.

    Where is batman?

    Basically the show hinges on whether or not we get actual batman at some point
    If its just Jim Gordon and a bunch of villain origin stories without Batman expect this show to be less interesting.

    Gotham: Young Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle Cast
    Meet the future Batman and Catwoman.
    by Eric Goldman MARCH 4, 2014

    A ton of casting news has come in for FOX's upcoming TV series Gotham recently, but today two major components were added with the announcement of who is playing Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, the final series regulars for the show.

    David Mazouz (Touch) has been cast as the preteen Bruce Wayne. The press release describes Bruce as, "sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents. Serious and soulful, young Bruce relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth and James Gordon."

    A newcomer, Camren Bicondova has been cast as Selina Kyle, "a teenage orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. A street thief and skilled pickpocket, she’s dangerous when cornered."
