Gotham (FOX Show)

http://www.wired.com/underwire/2013/...m-tv-show-fox/

Interesting.

Rumor is that shows like Arrow, and the possible spin-off The Flash, may tie into the DC movie universe and lead up to the Justice League Movie. I wonder if this will have anything to do with it. Could be a cool way for DC to attack their plans for the Justice League. This way they aren't completely copying the Marvel formula.

    I dunno how I feel about this. Jim Gordan just isn't that interesting. I wouldn't mind them creating the Gotham universe for TV to setup a Batman return to TV though.

    Re: Gotham (FOX Show)

    There ARE a thousand cop shows so I hope they are able to do something to make this standout. I love the character of Jim Gordon and it will be incredibly hard to top Gary Oldman. He was absolutely perfect. According to some of the comments below the article it will be miraculous if the show makes it through 3 episodes befre being cancelled. I think this has a good shot though if done well.

    Don't see that happeneing. Not with Affleck making his first go at Batman. I don't see them launching a brand new Batman on film as well as on TV.

    Exactly. Batman certainly has a great rogues gallery. Of all the superheroes he has the most famous ones. How many people can name more than one Superman villain? I didn't know a single villain from Green Arrow until Arrow.

    If this does in fact introduce famous villains it could be pretty cool. I would love to see how Gotham falls into despair and maybe see some famous villains rise from it. I also love the mob aspect of Batman. One of the things that makes Batman Begins and Dark Knight so great is the involvement of the mob.

    Interesting. It'll be like Smallville, apparently.

    Only reason smallville worked is Superman had an origin story that was compelling already. Bruce was a spoiled brat until his parents died. Not sure how this will work out. Ill give it a few episodes before I call it.

    Everything I've seen/read about this show certainly has grabbed my attention. Hopefully the right people get involved and produce a quality product.

    One interesting thing to mention (Chad, you probably already knew this) was that upon hearing about this show, Kevin Smith and Paul Dini discussed, on the podcast Fatman on Batman, the possibilities of where a show like this could be taken. Their idea/direction of the show would be that rather than focus entirely on Gordon, it would focus on young teengage Bruce and end with him eventually donning the cape and cowl.

    Coincidentally enough, after this podcast and ideas simmered and were discussed on the interwebs for a few months, all of the sudden Fox announced the change in direction of the show which sounded quite similar to what Kevin and Paul came up with. Here's an article summarizing these events.

    http://www.darkknightnews.com/2014/0...t-tonal-shift/

    Not saying that Fox took their ideas cause somebody at Fox could have easily come up with this same story/direction on their own, but it makes one wonder if they saw the traction that Kev and Paul's idea was getting amongst their fan bases.

Could be a cool way for DC to attack their plans for the Justice League. This way they aren't completely copying the Marvel formula.

    The main reason that I don't see that happening is, when WB finally is serious about putting together the true Justice League movie, I just have trouble believing that they'd take what was basically a total unknown who played the character of The Flash in the TV series (even if it does well) and stick that kid in a major role of what would be one of the biggest films of all time.

    Fatman on Batman is awesome. I love Paul Dini, the Batman Animated is one of the best adaptations of Batman and Paul Dini did some of the best work with the Bat.
