Well, it looks like this geek is getting his Christmas wish. More details have come in regarding the upcoming Gotham television show and it’s looking like this series will shape up to be something truly worthy of the Batman name. Better yet, the news isn’t coming to us from the vacuum of the rumormill, but from an actual source – TV Guide’s twitter. Scroll down to see the awesomeness.
Revelation Number One – While we’ve already heard that a young Bruce Wayne will be appearing in the show, it appears as if they have more plans for the burgeoning Batman than were first suspected. They’ll be growing young Bruce throughout the series, eventually leading into his origin story and the donning of the cape and cowl in the final episode. Kinda spoiler-ish, for sure, but something to look forward to within the context of the series as a whole.
Revelation Number Two – Batman villains! Even though it’s James Gordon doing the detective work, many of Batman fans’ favorite villains will be showing up to cause trouble. The word is that there will be origin stories for, at the very least, Riddler, Penguin, Joker and Catwoman.
And now I want them to be done with the show already so I can watch it. Stupid time! Where’s a TARDIS when you need one?
Anyone else starting to get really freakin’ excited about this?
Thanks to ComicBookMovie for the heads-up.
