Fox green-lights Batman prequal. Probably will focus on the early years of Commissioner Gordon, maybe drawing on 'Year One' for material.

D.C.'s answer to S.H.I.E.L.D it looks like.

I have my doubts about Gordon being a interesting enough lead character to carry a entire show. I'll still check it out, but it doesn't sound that interesting to me.

show has a series order now, most of the main casting appears to be done except for Bruce
Ben McKenzie (Southland, The O.C.) ... Detective James Gordon
Donal Logue (Grounded for Life, Sons Of Anarchy, Terriers) ... Detective Harvey Bullock
Sean Pertwee ... Alfred Pennyworth

interestingly couple of quotes say it is going to be the story of Bruce till he puts on the cape, others say it is going to follow Gordon.

Could show a little story on Batgirl and in the credits, show Oracle.

Warner Bros. TV has tapped ?Touch? alum David Mazouz for the role of a pre-teen Bruce Wayne in ?Gotham,? the studio?s Batman origins drama for Fox.

Mazouz will play boy who leans on his butler Alfred and Commissioner James Gordon for guidance after his wealthy parents are murdered. Bruce Wayne has traditionally been the alter ego of the Caped Crusader ? but Mazouz will not at any point become Batman in the show, something Warner Bros. took pains to point that out in announcing the casting.

So, basically, another cop show. That's awesome, we definitely need more of those.

Lets make super hero shows without super heroes. Because that's so compelling.

Next they'll have a Superman that just runs real fast.

Pretty sure I saw "The Flash" is already being worked on, Kreugen.

Nah, that's pushing it. They'll just have a teen drama: Ma and Pa Kent, The Early Years.

I'm just still trying to figure out how this all is supposed to fit together. It's a show about Jim Gordon working his way up through the police force, but it's also about Bruce Wayne dealing with the death of his parents, while apparently also giving us the origin of several of Batman's foes. There are parts that sound like they'd make an interesting show, but then there are parts that also sound incredibly dull, while others I have no clue how they'll do without Batman. At this point, I'm unsure if they are trying to ensure they have plenty of content for storylines in the show or if the show just lacks focus.
