 Wiseguy, well said. In most origin stories the big villains come after the main hero arrives. Which to me always brings up the question, if Batman didn't show up... would the "big villains" have showed up? Or does evil become something bigger because the one fighting for good stepped up his game? Would Gotham have been better off if Bruce Wayne had also been shot in the alley? It's to each reader or viewer to determine the answer on their own and it's makes the story more compelling. I like both ideas, I am curious to see what kind of spin that will put on it. I believe they could create a strong foundation and explore Gotham in a way that hasn't been seen before. I have really enjoyed Arrow so far, but for me as a fan (and not a huge GA fan) I wanted more of the set up. In the first two weeks he came back and had a million dollar "bat cave" set up that would have taken a crew of 10 to set up in a few months. For me (just me) I would love to see Bruce fall in the cave. Have it start as a place to hide, maybe a place to show a friend (or girlfriend*). Have him make it a place to think, eventually bring a laptop, a table, show him building not only his cave but his character. I think this could be truly rich and exciting. Looking at some of the "big villains" and making weapons to use against them in future years/seasons. To me, as I lay out what could be a story, I see exactly what I want to see. I am a Batman fan for sure for many, many years, I don't have the extensive comic knowledge that many do, but I looking forward to seeing one of my favorite charters of all time on TV and getting a chance to see him grow into his universe.

From other, more extensive, articles I have read, they're not saying that the actual final villains are appearing on the show, but their younger selves.

The way I read this, here's how the show woudl play out - You could show a young Selina Kyle in a troubled home, and see what leads to her living a life of crime. A young Edward Nygma being a brilliant youth with an obsession with puzzles. It's not until after the series finale appearance of the caped Batman that these characters would presumably parlay their lifestyles and character traits into the costumed personae that we have come to know and love. But the series would demonstrate how they were heading in that direction.

 I'm a HUGE Batman fan. But, they need to let the character rest a bit. They're milking that teet dry.

I'd rather Gotham be centered around Gordon and how he has to deal with, not only other corrupt cops, but an ever growing class of super criminal. Have it lead up to Batman's first appearance in the final episode.
