Fox’s upcoming television series “Gotham” will include several classic Batman villains Fox chairman Kevin Reilly (via Deadline) confirmed today.
“Gotham” will focus on Commissioner Gordon before he became “the commissioner.” Young Detective Gordon will also follow the journey of young Bruce Wayne as well.
“The show will track Bruce from a child until he puts on a cape (in the finale).”
Reilly confirmed that fans will see our favorite villains such as The Riddler, The Penguin, Catwoman and more.
“We will see how they get to become what they are as Gotham is teetering on the edge. It is an operatic soap with a larger than life quality.”
“Gotham” has already been greenlit as a pilot with veteran director Danny Cannon behind the camera. Reilly confirmed that the network has the full intention of taking the show to series.
Currently there are no actors attached to the project and there is no word on who the studio is eyeing for the lead role of Detective James Gordon.
