Fox are eyeing a Fall debut for Gotham, and following a few hard to believe rumours, we now have our first official addition to the cast. According to Deadline and various other outlets, Southland and former star of The O.C. Ben McKenzie will play Detective James Gordon in the series. Gotham already has a series commitment, and will feature a young Bruce Wayne as well as early iterations of villains like The Joker, Catwoman, The Riddler and The Penguin. According to the official logline, "Gordon is an idealistic rookie detective for Gotham City Open Police Department’s Homicide Squad, a former college football star and a war hero." The Mentalist creator Bruno Heller penned the pilot, while Danny Cannon will direct. What do you guys think of this news?

Eh?

Ain't Gordon ginger?

Isn't Oliver Queen blonde? Isn't Roy Harper ginger? Isn't Barry Allen blonde? When it comes to live adaptations, DC really doesn't care about hair color.

But if they were, hair dye. Hair dye all the way.

They should have made a Batman show.

They already said it will have huge players from his rogues gallery, and that we'll see Bruce put on the cowl at the end of the season.

Why? This makes 1 total live-action Batman show to date. What do you think the world owes you? It's not even done with casting and you're already dissatisfied? Get a grip.

I don't want a Gordon show, I couldn't care less if there's the rogues gallery, I want a Batman show centering on Batman doing Batman things. Gordon's old and useless.

I honestly can't believe your name is Master Detective. Do you even read Batman comics? I sh** you not I read your post in a whiny kid voice "I don't wat dis, I want dis! I want dis! Eww Gordon is old and icky." Roflmao. Not to mention that that's not even true because this is focusing on a young Gordon, but whatever.

I see I have enerved the gordon fangirls (I'm not even gonna put a capital 'g')

Still, if they had done a Batman show, it would have been a million times more epic and interesting

that gordon show sounds boring. A policeman with a moustache dealing with crooks. How original.

@masterdetective: well when you look at it that way.....it ain't that very original I guess so. BUT this is Gotham were talking about! a place of the black mask! the pinguin! catwoman! maybe even killer croc...

#20 Posted by LordoftheNorth (1365 posts) - - Show Bio

@masterdetective: the differance is that this is Gotham so the whole time Gordan will not only have to deal with the everyday crooks but the young people who are slowly becoming the villains we know today and he will have to deal with the massive corruption not only with in the police force he works in but in the government and Corperations that reside within Gotham

I don't give a crap about the villains, I want Batman. At least Batgirl
