Gotham, based on the DC Comics of Batman, premieres tonight! The show mainly features the characters of Detective James Gordon and Bruce Wayne. Ben McKenzie plays a young Detective James Gordon with the series serving as a straightforward story of Gordon’s early days on the Gotham City police force. The idea evolved not only to include the Bruce Wayne character, but will also tell the origin stories of several Batman villains, including Penguin, Riddler, Catwoman, Joker, Poison Ivy, Scarecrow, Hugo Strange, Harvey Dent and Mr. Freeze. We can’t wait to see how all the stories unfold for each of the characters!
Bruce Wayne is only eight years old in the beginning of the show. This has been one of the most highlighted pilots of this fall season, so we can’t wait to see how it does. The show has been heavily advertised and seems very promising. Everyone tends to love the movies and television shows that are based of popular comic books. The pilot is said to start off with a flashback with young Bruce Wayne.
Bruce’s parents are gunned down in the street as he watches as they are on their way home from the theater. In the show “Gotham,” the murders are also witnessed by a rooftop prowler, who will turn out to be Selina Kyle, the future Catwoman. Sounds like it is going to be good, we will definitely be tuning in.
