New Batman spin-off TV show coming from Fox
It seems as though the news for Batman fans just keeps on coming with a recent announcement from Fox that they will be making a spin-off TV show based on police commissioner James Gordon.
This is the character played by Gary Oldman in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy although it remains to be seen if he is cast in the new series, or whether a new face will be brought in. Gordon is actually one of the longest standing characters in the Batman world, dating all the way back to 1939 when the superhero himself was introduced. However, Batman himself will not be playing a role in the new TV show.
The new series will be called Gotham and will be made by Fox after they won a huge bidding war with several other US networks. Fox will be hoping to replicate the success of ABC’s new TV spin-off, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, which pulled in almost 12m viewers on its debut.
This new TV show comes hot on the heels of another recent announcement that Batman and Superman would meet on the big screen for the first time in the summer of 2015. Henry Cavill will be returning to play Superman, while Ben Affleck has been brought in to replace Christian Bale, much to the displeasure of many Batman fans.
Many Batman fans are also looking forward to the next official video game in the series, Arkham Origins, due out on October 25.
