COMIC NEWS - Commissioner Gordon Heads to Fox In His Own Drama Series
This may not be horror, but there's something you're gonna learn about me. I love Batman and I will write about him any given chance, even though this doesn't actually have all that much to do with Batman himself.
First, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (wow, that's hard to type), now we have Gotham in the next line of superhero based TV series that will not feature any superheroes. This one, will be focusing on Commissioner James Gordon in his early years and the rise of Gotham's villains before either meet the Batman. The series will focus heavily on Gordon's years as a detective for Gotham PD, so I'm hoping maybe, just maybe, at the end we'll get a little sneak peak of Batman: Year One?
There's very little word as of yet, however Bruno Heller, creator of The Mentalist and Rome, has been tapped to write and executive produce.
I'm also grateful that this isn't being released by the giant crap-shoot that is The CW, whom DC's parent company, Time Warner, happens to own 50% of. Arrow currently airs and The Flash is in development there.
It's just too bad that Bryan Cranston is too old to play Gordon in this series, he was perfect in the animated DC feature, Batman: Year One.
