Earlier today I noted on this, the premiere night of Agents of SHIELD, how DC would be smart to a Gotham Central TV show. Gotham Central, like Marvel’s new show, focused on the people in the background of the superheroes, the police force of Gotham City.
Tonight Deadline has revealed that Fox has won the rights to a new show called Gotham from the producer of the Mentalist. The story will star James Gordon and focus on Gotham before Batman shows up.
This premise is unlike that of Gotham Central which took place concurrent to Batman (and his family) operating in Gotham. Whether that premise will exclude using characters from the run by Greg Rucka and Ed Brubaker, remains to be seen. But I personally would love for Renee Montoya and Josie Mac to show up.
At what point we find Jim Gordon in his life will also determine whether we see his daughter and wife or his future wife, Sarah Essen.
I love Jim Gordon but it IS pretty amazing that he now has his own show while certain “tricky” characters don’t.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT GOTHAM CENTRAL GOTHAM CENTRAL GOTHAM CENTRALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
RENEE MONTOYA AND JOSIE MAC AND CRISPUS ALLEN MARCUS DRIVER ROMY CHANDLER FUCKING STACY!!!!!
HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS
As you guys can see, I’m a little bit excited, enough to interrupt your confessing to give you this news.
It would be awesome if we could give this show viewership, especially because of the lack of turn-out DC is getting lately. We need new fans and new product, and the only thing The Company will understand is ratings and buzz. Please help contribute to your fandom and get more exposure!
I don't have any particular DC confession (oh sure, they're finding new ways to break my heart every month lately, but that's not unique). But I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy this tumblr, seeing what other fans love and hate, and how you frame these confessions. DC (mainstream comics in general) goes through phases. If you don't like the comics now, just wait and something you like will come along... Eventually.
