Forget the furor over Ben Affleck as Batman for a minute and ask yourself this question:
Who should play Commission Gordon? On television? On Fox in 2014, to be specific?
The network announced last night that it has ordered Gotham straight to series. The drama will be executive produced by Bruno Heller (The Mentalist) and produced by Warner Bros. Television.
It promises to tell “the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham famous.”
So... The Joker? The Riddler? Mr. Freeze? The possibilities here seem endless and possibly very entertaining.
This news, of course, comes just as ABC is premiering its own comic book-based series. Did you tune in for the Agents of SHIELD premiere?
