DC Entertainment has released interviews with Ben McKenzie and the cast of Gotham. This is our first look into the series, that is not a collection of trailers or spotlights. 

Press Release: It's one of the most highly anticipated shows of the fall, and we're giving you All Access. In this exclusive new clip, we talk to the good people of Gotham including Ben McKenzie (James Gordon), Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald Cobblepot) and Jada Pinkett Smith (Fish Mooney) about what we can expect from Fox's upcoming new Batman prequel.

Gotham arrives on FOX this fall.

 Next I want them to make a show about all the other people who live in the Spider-Man  universe, but no Spider-Man.  Just imagine all the greatness of a show about all the other people living in Spidey's New York, but no costumes or web slinging.  We could call it Friends.

I can just hear the pitch meeting that started this off:  it'll be like Smallville, but grittier!

P.S.  I really wish that Mania would let me use quotation marks.  It's driving me nuts that using quotes prevents me from posting.

 Reek...yes this concept is almost as dumb as Ironman 3 where Ironman has to face a threat against U.S.A. alone (apparently the rest of the Avengers and Shield were are on vacation or busy elsewhere)...or Captain America the Winter Soldier where Cap could have used a little help from Ironman...or the TV series Marvel Agents of Shield where we never see any of the Avengers (no costumes).

Blank, your comparison makes no sense whats so ever.  So, to you, every movie has to be an Avengers movie.  What reek was saying, is that if you remove all the Super/Special characters from a Superhero show, you get a regular sitcom.  The reason other characters don't all show up in every movie to save the day, is cause they are busy, maybe in thier own movie, or something else.  The same as it is in the comics,  The heroes can't be in every situation all the time.  Iron Man, Hulk and Thor are not Shield agents, so when a SECRET covert agency gets infiltrated, they would not be there.  Thor couldn't help Ironman, because he was in asgard.  And the whole point why no Avengers showed up in Shield, was, that Coulson was dead to everyone, and these stories were about Coulson's group, not the whole of shield.  Common sense pretty much solves all your gripes.

Gotham without Batman is like putting mustard on a bun and still calling it a hot dog. They can try to sell this as a hot dog but it's still just mustard and bread. 

fft5305 6/27/2014 1:11:06 PM

Another bad analogy. They're not selling a hot dog. That would be if they were calling the show Batman, but had no Batman in it. They're calling the show The Hot Dog Stand. They're giving us the background on where they are going to sell the hot dogs...

Eldogg42 6/27/2014 5:46:32 PM

 but actually not selling any hotdogs, because of all the movie rights

Eldogg, movie rights have nothing to do with this. Gotham is a 100 pecent DC-Warner Bros. produced show syndicated by FOX to show during a Prime Time Slot. Remember there is no WB anymore. The folks at DC-Warner could call the show Young Batman, Lil Batman, Before Batman, Bruce Wayne, or they could call it Gotham. It is as FFT put it- essentially the Hot Dog Stand, albeit under construction, that will eventually be selling the hot dog.

Personally, I’m tired of DC milking their two main cash cows on all 4 teets. It’s getting to the point where I’m starting to really dislike both characters simply because that’s all I see/hear out of DC any more. Myself – I’d much rather see a Dr Fate series done in the style of Arrow. And if you think about it, would / could tie in (and possibly cross over) with Constantine when it starts this Fall. I think it would be huge hit. If only someone at DC’s entertainment division had the gonads to step outta that black/blue box and take a chance. *shrug*


Eldogg42 7/1/2014 1:42:02 PM

Alright, maybe rights are not the right words...that doesn't look good without quote marks!  I mean They don't have the balls to connect the TV properties to the movie properties.  Thats why they didn't have Bruce Wayne in Smallville, they didn't want the audience to get confused that there were two Batmen out there, during Nolan's run.  Unfortunately, DC does thier Movie/TV universes the same way they do comics.  Eventually there will be movie called Crisis on Multiple Media Universes, where Ben Affleck's Batman will meet up with Bale's Batman, and then Brandon Routh will finally get back in acting!
