Gordon's Banner

Gotham, the TV series currently in the works over at Fox, initially sold as a series focusing on Batman’s Commissioner James Gordon before he was Gotham City’s police commissioner, has undergone a major change having been confirmed via Deadline by Fox chairman Kevin Reilly that the network’s upcoming series “Gotham” will chronicle the journey of a young Bruce Wayne saying: “The show will track Bruce from a child until he puts on a cape.”

Also mentioned was that the series will incorporate the origin stories of several classic Batman villains including Penguin, The Riddler and Selena Kyle AKA Catwoman.

Writing for the series will begin late February 2014 and the series is set for the Fox network.
