Recently Fox won the rights to a new TV series by DC Comics called ‘Gotham’, the show will evolve around a young James Gordon as a homicide detective in Gotham City. This will involve origin stories for Gordon and for the bad guys who make up the Batman Universe.
This concept is something that really appeals to me, I love Batman, especially the Nolan films and I really hope they keep the adult tone for this show. I think Batman is a dark character and keeping this series rooted to the ground and dark, is for me, the way to really make it work.
Fox has already commissioned a full season for the show and they are currently holding auditions for a 10 year old Bruce Wayne as a series regular, with filming on the pilot episode to start in March 2014, so expect to hear a lot more about this over the next couple of months, it will be interesting to see who they cast as Gordon and the other lead roles, such as The Joker, Two-Face and Harley Quinn etc.
What’s your thoughts on this? Who would you cast in the lead role?
