Batman Begins: 'Gotham' TV Series Will Reveal Villains' Origins
The Penguin, the Riddler and Catwoman have been confirmed for appearances on Fox's new Batman-centric television series.
By Josh Wigler


Batman Begins: ‘Gotham’ TV Series Will Reveal Villains’ Origins - MTV

Batman, prepare yourself for the "Smallville" treatment.

During their Television Critics Association panel this week, Fox executives revealed their plans for "Gotham," the network's upcoming DC Comics-based TV series centered on the early adventures of Commissioner James Gordon. But Gordon isn't the only Batman fixture lined up for "Gotham," as Fox chairman Kevin Reilly revealed that Bruce Wayne and many of his most famous villains have roles as well.

"The show will arc a young Bruce Wayne from a child (around 12) into the final episode of the series, when he will put on the cape," said Reilly, according to Deadline. On the subject of villains, Reilly added, "We will see how they get to become who they are as Gotham is teetering on the edge."

Specific characters mentioned during the presentation include the Penguin, the Riddler and Catwoman all three of whom are marquee Batman names, not just C-list rogues. It looks like Fox plans to break out the big guns with "Gotham," even if they aren't quite ready to go all-in on a Batman-focused story.

While they're batting around villains to include on "Gotham," here are a few classic Batman rogues we'd want to see on the show, given what we know of the premise:

Scarface & The Ventriloquist


Arnold Wesker suffers from multiple personality disorder. One of those personalities manifests in the form of Scarface, a puppet with the look and attitude of a 1950s Tommy-gun-shooting gangster. The '50s aesthetic might not work out so well for "Gotham," but given the series' focus on a 12-year-old Bruce, we could easily see a 12-year-old Arnold turning a Scarface action figure into a lethal weapon.

Hush

As one of Bruce's oldest childhood friends, Tommy "Hush" Elliot has plenty of reason to appear on "Gotham," even if it takes a while for him to adopt his murderous alter-ego. Batman's bandaged nemesis first appeared in Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee's acclaimed 2003 run, but he's yet to receive the live-action treatment. "Gotham," fix that.

Poison Ivy

If only to see the scene where Ivy gets her plant-like powers during a high school chemistry class gone wrong. There are other reasons, but that's the big one.

Mr. Freeze

Speaking of Ivy, how about her "Batman & Robin" cohort? We're a long way from that 1997 disaster, so any and all Arnold Schwarzeneggerisms can and should be cast aside in favor of a more serious approach to Victor Fries. Perhaps we could see him as Bruce's high school science teacher, or something similar.


Details emerge for DC Comics' 'Constantine' and 'Gotham' TV shows

Details emerge for DC Comics''' '''Constantine''' and '''Gotham''' TV shows | The Verge

Supernatural detective John Constantine will also be getting his own TV pilot after NBC purchased the rights to adapt a TV series based on the character last year. The chain-smoking, trenchcoat-sporting detective was created by Alan Moore and appeared in Vertigo Comics' Hellblazer, before shifting over to DC Comics' Constantine in 2013. Deadline reports the pilot will be written and produced by David Goyer a writer for Christopher Nolan's three Batman movies and Man of Steel and executive producer of The Mentalist, Daniel Cerone. The commitment was sold with a penalty if NBC decides not to follow through with the production of the series.

Air dates and specific plot details for the pilots are yet to be confirmed, as are the actors who'll take the lead roles. Keanu Reeves played Constantine in 2005's movie of the same name, but it's unclear if he'll be reprising the role for TV. Deadline reports that the actor that does earn the part is also likely to appear on the big screen in the future: John Constantine is rumored to appear in the Justice League Dark movie set to be directed by Guillermo del Toro.


If it's written properly that Gotham Central , TV show will be the GOAT, I wish it was going to be on cable, so we could see Gotham's violent underbelly played out on the small screen.

I wanna say if it's on CW, it'll be sh!tty (teen soap opra) but Arrow is one of my favorite shows (even with the bit of Days of Our Lives BS), and it's a CW show...

And I enjoyed Smallville for the most part, and that had WAY more teen drama crap in it...

I know I'm in the minority, but I want to see a modern take on Clock King. I even had it all laid out in my head how CK could have been an amazing follow up villain to the Joker with the Nolan movies.

I'm not familiar with Constantine, but I kinda liked the Keanu Reeves movie.



And damn almighty, I'm tired of the "caped crusader". Kinda seems like it's going the way of Smallville.

DC just doesn't get me excited.

On a side note, Fred you have made it now! You were featured in the Eddie Game. You're not just a black guy now. You're our Black Guy

I agree in that I'm also sick to death of Batman...he's got a$$loads of films and a new toon practically every year..."it's because he's popular!!"...no sh!t!...when you plaster anyone all over the place constantly they become popular...stupid a$$ car-dash-ians are popular and they are literally nobody!...give some other hero a freaking chance!...I know, I know, "it's all about the money."

As for the Smallville comparison...I'm betting Gotham will actually, most likely, mirror Arrow in style...it's a very good show, and loved by fans and critics alike...also gets great ratings...

Hopefully Wayne is just a character and not the main character. They have potential to feature some cool gotham characters if they revolve the story on the city and title, and not on the caped crusader. But I bet that never happens.

Read the very first post first to get a understanding of the rules.

Then read a few posts and finally look at the last or 2nd to the last page to see what I'm pretty sure is your first appearance.

I know, I was just being a smart ass. It bothers me that DC can't hardly ever do anything without Bats and Supes getting their nose into everything.

I hear ppl complain that Marvel treats every character like it's the most important but I feel like that's a good thing. If you're a fan of Black Panther, you want the Black Panther. Not Spidey and Iron man fixing everything.

DC has this thing where it's Bats and Supes and then nobody else matters. It makes me not want to care.

Tooooootally agree!...I'd love to see a WW movie and a Flash movie and an Aquaman movie...but no way in hell that's gonna happen unless Batman or Superman are also on board...DC obviously hasn't heard of over saturation...

It's not even over saturation imo. You can't go wrong with a good film. Make a WW movie that isn't all Nolan Emo and make it fun and interesting and it will do well in the box office. I'm not saying it will be a dark knight or avengers but not every fucking movie needs to match them to be successful.

Very true...I'd LOVE DC to make fun hero movies again...but they've discovered the dark and gritty cow, and they are gonna milk it for all it's worth, even if dark and gritty isn't right for the character...

From an article I saw, I think Batman isn't in it but Wayne is and he's just a kid.

I should clarify my statement earlier. When I said Supes and Bats, I was also talking about their other identities too.
