Batman: Gotham Origins Pilot Commissioned

With the likes of Smallville and Arrow being massive successes over the past decade, could it be that we're finally getting some live action Batman TV series after all? Well, kind of.

It seems that FOX (what, not the CW this time?) have landed the rights to Gotham from Bruno Heller (Rome, The Mentalist). The pilot, which has the potential for a series will actually focus on Commission Gordon (who is unlikely to be played by Gary Oldman) and will explore his origins along with some of the city's most infamous of villains.

However the show if picked up will not feature Batman himself. The Caped Crusader as the show will be more focused on the younger years of Gordon but if the show is a success, I wouldn't rule out seeing Batman at some point. I hope this series takes off.

Press Release:

I'll post more information when it becomes available.
