Batman fans can rejoice as we start nearing the schedule date for the beginning of the Gotham TV show on Fox, 22 September 2014. Gotham will highlight the origin stories of several characters including Commissioner Gordon, Bruce Wayne and Penguin, Catwoman, Poison Ivy and The Riddler.
The show was created by Bruno Heller, based on the original characters created by Bob Kane. Currently the show will run for sixteen episodes. Gotham sports a variety of well-known stars including Jada Pinkett Smith, Donal Logue, Ben McKenzie and Sean Pertwee. I'm more than positive that this show will fill the gap for us die-hard Batman fans until the release of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016).
A new recruit in Captain Sarah Essen's Gotham City Police Department, Detective James Gordon is paired with Harvey Bullock to solve one of Gotham's most high-profile cases ever: the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. During his investigation, Gordon meets the Waynes' son, Bruce, now in the care of his butler Alfred, which further compels Gordon to catch the killer. Along the way, Gordon must confront gang boss Fish Mooney, as well as many of Gotham's future villains, such as Selina Kyle and Oswald Cobblepot. Eventually, Gordon is forced to form an unlikely friendship with Bruce, one that will help shape the boy's future in becoming the Dark Knight
