Fox chairman, Kevin Reilly, has announced that not only will the new Gotham Series have a young Bruce Wayne, but a few classic villains as well. All this was reported on Deadline.com. “The show will track Bruce from a child (around 12 years old) until he puts on a cape (in the finale),” Reilly said. “Also on tap are the Riddler, Catwoman, the Penguin. ‘We will see how they get to become what they are as Gotham is teetering on the edge,’ Reilly said. ‘It is an operatic soap with a larger than life quality’.”
The series has been given the green light for an official pilot. The series is being supervised by The Mentalist’s Bruno Heller. Danny Cannon will be directing the pilot.
