We are also looking forward to seeing Agent Carter during the winter break. We are also looking forward to the announcement of when Galavant will be airing.

Gotham has released the logo and official synopsis for the upcoming TV show. Let’s check out what they have to say:
“Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker?”
“GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), GOTHAM follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.”
This part we already knew about, we knew the show would deal with mostly with Gordon and a young Bruce Wayne. We also knew that we would be seeing some of the iconic villains only younger.
“Growing up in Gotham City’s surrounding suburbs, James Gordon (Ben McKenzie, “Southland,” “The O.C.”) romanticized the city as a glamorous and exciting metropolis where his late father once served as a successful district attorney. Now, two weeks into his new job as a Gotham City detective and engaged to his beloved fiancée, Barbara Kean (Erin Richards, Open Grave, “Breaking In”), Gordon is living his dream – even as he hopes to restore the city back to the pure version he remembers it was as a kid.”
I like this part; we always knew that Gordon was an idealist, which is what made Gordon who he was. Much like Batman, Gordon believed that Gotham could be saved, which is one of the reason’s why he teamed up with Batman in the first place.
“Brave, honest and ready to prove himself, the newly-minted detective is partnered with the brash, but shrewd police legend Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue, “Sons of Anarchy,” “Terriers,” “Vikings,” “Copper”), as the two stumble upon the city’s highest-profile case ever: the murder of local billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne. At the scene of the crime, Gordon meets the sole survivor: the Waynes’ hauntingly intense 12-year-old son, Bruce (David Mazouz, “Touch”), toward whom the young detective feels an inexplicable kinship. Moved by the boy’s profound loss, Gordon vows to catch the killer.”
In the Batman Begin’s movie, Gordon was one of the cops on duty when the Wayne’s were killed. He is one of the first people to comfort a young Bruce Wayne. Having Gordon vow to catch their killer will be a great way to connect Gordon and Wayne throughout the series. I like the description of hauntingly intense for young Bruce Wayne because they seem like a very Batmanesqe description. We all know that once Bruce’s parents are killed he stops being a child anymore.
“As he navigates the often-underhanded politics of Gotham’s criminal justice system, Gordon will confront imposing gang boss Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith, The Matrix films, “HawthoRNe,” Collateral), and many of the characters who will become some of fiction’s most renowned, enduring villains, including a teenaged Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman (acting newcomer Camren Bicondova) and Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor, “The Walking Dead,” Another Earth).”
It says that Gordon will run into these characters, which makes complete sense. I really hope Bruce runs into Selina, because I would love to see their interaction evolve. It would be so cute and innocent to start and then evolve into something more provocative and sexy. I have been shipping Batman and Catwoman since I was a little kid watching Batman Returns in theaters, I have been shipping them the longest. They did say Selina is a skilled pickpocket, she could very easily pickpocket Bruce Wayne, I am just saying.
“Although the crime drama will follow Gordon’s turbulent and singular rise through the Gotham City police department, led by Police Captain Sarah Essen (Zabryna Guevara, “Burn Notice”), it also will focus on the unlikely friendship Gordon forms with the young heir to the Wayne fortune, who is being raised by his unflappable butler, Alfred (Sean Pertwee, “Camelot,” “Elementary”). It is a friendship that will last them all of their lives, playing a crucial role in helping the young boy eventually become the crusader he’s destined to be.”
I am interested in seeing how the friendship between Bruce and Gordon plays out. I could see it being pivotal in helping Bruce becoming Batman. Gordon is a good detective and probably in the comics has figured out that Bruce Wayne is Batman, if a young Tim Drake can do that, then I am sure Gordon can.
I like the synopsis; I know the show obviously will not be exactly like lore because of how they are doing it. I am expecting something similar to Smallville. The logo looks great, it looks dark and gritty which is how Gotham needs to look. I am wondering if they are going to go with Joe Chill not only being the person who killed Bruce’s parents but also being the Joker. That is one of the possible origin stories for the Joker. Let’s be fair no one knows the Joker’s actual age.
I am very curious to see how this show goes.
The upcoming Constantine TV show has gained a few more cast members; Lucy Griffiths (True Blood, & BBC Robin Hood), Harold Perrineau (Lost) and Charles Halford. They will be joining Matt Ryan who has been cast as Constantine.
Griffiths will be playing a character called Liv, “She is targeted by demons and Constantine steps in to save her. Liv also has the ability to see the supernatural world among us. She joins up with Constantine to save the world and learn how to control her powers.”
Perrineau will play Manny, “Who is an angel assigned to watch over Constantine. Manny has the power to step into people’s bodies.”
Halford will be playing Chas, “Who is Constantine’s oldest friend who might be supernatural.”
They are taking some of the characters from the movie, but they are changing something’s up as well. Not sure how well they are following the comics but we can only hope they will take from the original source material.
