Right after Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finished its first episode, The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Fox has committed to a new Batman prequel series entitled Gotham, starring a young Jim Gordan. Bruno Heller (The Mentalist) will executive produce and serve as the showrunner for the series, which will focus on the early life of Officer Jim Gordon squaring off against an assortment of criminals that will eventually form a certain Dark Knight's rogue gallery. It's important to note the series has been given a "straight to series commitment", meaning that it won't have to compete with other pilots during pilot season.
If everything goes as planned, DC will have three superhero series on network television next fall. Arrow will be debuting its second season in October, and a planned Flash spinoff is currently in development. While there's no official commitment, it wouldn't be surprising to see Gotham act as a stepping stone between last summer's Man of Steel and 2015's Batman/Superman movie.
No doubt we'll be learning more about Gotham in the coming weeks, stay tuned.
