Don't think a prequel to the Batman saga will do well.  Really feels anticlimactic to me, even though I loved the first few issues of the Brubaker comic series I read.  I think this idea would be a much better sell if The Bat actually made the odd appearance - maybe we'll finally get to see teases of him in the last season, if this show actually makes it past the pilot...

 Sounds abit interesting, but do people really want to follow commissioner Gorden as the lead? I've always thought a young Batman show would work. See him travel the world and train to be the greatest detective. But that's not gonna happen anytime soon.

 I don't know, I think a Gotham TV show without Batman could work.  After all, even if the show is part cop drama, Gotham is still a comic book setting.  Crime didn't start because Bruce Wayne started dressing up like a bat, he started dressing up like a bat to contend with the rampant crime and corruption that already existed.  Also, as with every change in media (comic to movie, or comic to television), it is highly unlikely they would adhere strictly to DC continuity, whatever that happens to be this week.  Batman's Rogues Gallery didn't just spring up over night.  I also wouldn't mind seeing some episodes featuring an up and coming villain who goes around in a red hood, or seeing what circumstances made Joe Chill so desperate to murder the Waynes outside of the theater.  C'mon, use your imaginations, people!  There's plenty of things they could do to make this a quality show.

Afterthought - another reason why I don't see this as DC/WB playing catch up in regard to television - Unlike Marvel/Disney, DC/WB have NEVER tied in their feature films with their television programming.  I don't see them starting to do so now.

 Smallville did 10 years. That's a success no matter how much you hate. Arrow is on season 2. Stop hating.

 Will at least see the 1st episode.  But Gotham prior to Batman would be pretty generic.  Just be another Law and Order clone - just in Gotham (this is my initial concern).

@SarcasticCaveman

You are of course right, and there is alot of stuff that would be cool...

But I think it needs to be set AFTER the Waynes are murdered, while Bruce is away and about a year or so before he returns to Gotham. Have a pre-Batgirl Barbara studying at college and the Flying Graysons as the Main Event at the Iceberg Lounge, from where Cobblepot runs his little empire...

The things is I REALLY want Cranston as Gordon, he is one of the few actors that could play Luthor AND Gordon and make them very different.

And how often are those two characters in the same room, anyway?

Alfred could also be a secondary lead in the show.

I wish these dc/marvel tv show would just own it and give full comic stories based on there best stories and characters.  Smallville and Arrow are going to be exceptions to the rule but both lines have tons of stuff they could do with main tier characters.

Yeah this is such a reactionary move to Marvel Agents of SHIELD. If you are denying that you are a moron.

Also, yeah DC has been in the superhero tv game, so has marvel. Spider Man, Hulk. Geez pay attention people.

And while I won't say who is winning, I will say Marvel has a distinct advantage right now with their vision.

DC appears to be playing catch up. Seriously. No new movies besides MOS2: the Batman/Superman showdown. And that is 2015 at best. Then we have Arrow AKA Batman/Punisher with a bow. Hopefully this season they get him closer to the REAL F*CKING CHARACTER and stop this Bats with a bow routine. GA has never been that.

For all the crap Smallville gets, it was pretty close on Clark. Well except the teen angst BS but that was the theme of the series. The core of Clark was pretty close, judging the moral implications of his actions.

Again I will say it, it is not hard, the material has been already written for you. You just are not either brave enough or imaginative enough to risk using it.

Whether you want to admit it or not. Marvel clearly has the edge currently. In both quality, scope, and execution. deal with DC fans.

Oh one note that DC is dominating in, video games. Batman:AO is amazing.

SarcasticCaveman 9/26/2013 7:47:47 AM

 lazarus ir right...if DC and WB were just a little more brave and bold, they could possibly the world's finest television show ever...uh huh huh...see what I did there?  I do agree with you, laz, just in a Takei pun mode at the moment.

DC also trumps Marvel in animation.

Think of those awesome JL or Batman direct to video movies vs (ugh) that horrible Hulk/Iron Man animated flick.

I just read NBC is developing a Constantine TV show. Again, a reaction movie by DC.
