Gotham: Story Details on New Batman TV Series
More story details for the new Batman spin-off TV series have emerged.
Gotham was originally going to focus predominately on the character of Commissioner Gordon. However, now a younger Bruce Wayne and major villains from the Batman universe will feature heavily.
Fox chairman Kevin Reilly today announced that the series will include all of the classic Batman villains as well as heroes, including young Bruce Wayne. “The show will track Bruce from a child (around 12 years old) until he puts on a cape (in the finale),” he said.
Also on tap are the Riddler, Catwoman, the Penguin. “We will see how they get to become what they are as Gotham is teetering on the edge,” Reilly said. “It is an operatic soap with a larger than life quality.”
Reilly also confirmed that Gotham, originally bought with a series commitment, has a greenlighted pilot (Danny Cannon is directing), and is setting up a writers room in mid-February with the full intention to go to series.
