Das US network "Fox" hat eine ca. 20-minütige Dokumentation zur Ende September anlaufenden "pre-Batman" TV-Serie "GOTHAM" veröffentlicht (verfügbar in 4 Segmenten, z.B. per youTube; siehe unten).
Ab dem Herbst flankieren DC Comics den Start der TV-Show mit mehreren neuen Comic Book- Serien, die im Umfeld der titelgebenden Stadt angesiedelt sind (ebenso wie Paperback- Collections älterer Mini-Serien um Police Commisoner James Gordon).
"...Based upon characters published by DC Entertainment and produced by Warner Bros. Television, GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told.
Starring Ben McKenzie ("Southland," "The O.C."), Donal Logue ("Sons of Anarchy," "Terriers," "Vikings," "Copper") and Jada Pinkett Smith ("The Matrix" films, "HawthoRNe"), 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.
Executive producer Bruno Heller ("The Mentalist") wrote the pilot, which was directed and executive-produced by Emmy Award nominee Danny Cannon (the "CSI" franchise, "Nikita"). John Stephens will serve as an executive producer on the series...."
