So on the same night that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered in the US Fox has announced that they have picked up a new drama series from Warner Bros. Gotham is ment to be set before Batman has come to light within the city and will focus on the GCPD and commissioner Gordon. Im guessing the comic book basis for this will be Gotham Central the series that focused on the police officers that worked in Gotham.
I havent read Gotham Central just yet but by reputation it is meant to be a great read and this may spur me into finally giving it a read. Making this announcement on the same night as the SHIELD premier does feel a little underhanded from DC and Fox so lets hope they’re not just trying to jump on the bandwagon and that the show turns out to be good.
