Interesting! This could be a great show, but I hope it won't result in the cancellation of Beware The Batman 'cause that one's too good to be cancelled after so few episodes (then again, so was Thundercats, but that didn't stop them, so...).
Gotham Gets Pilot And Batman
Fox originally announced that “Gotham” – its upcoming Batman-themed origins television series – was going to detail how Commissioner Gordon and various villains [Penguin, Joker, Riddler, etc..] came to occupy the Gotham City turf. But now, here comes the bonus gravy boat as it was newly announced that “Gotham” would also include the origins of the young Bruce Wayne [specifically, from his tween years] and how he evolved into the Caped Crusader.
Additionally, while “Gotham” was initially announced as going straight to a full-blown series, it now will receive a pilot episode that is expected to air in Summer 2014.
