Let the fervor over Ben Affleck as Batman die down.

And let the debate over the casting of Commission Gordon begin!

During the week that ABC premieres Agents of SHIELD, Fox has given the green light to Gotham, a one-hour drama from Bruno Heller (The Mentalist) that will tell the origin story of "Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham famous.”

The show will skip the pilot process and likely be included on Fox's 2014-2015 schedule, with plenty more details still to come regarding just what we can expect.

But for now, sound off: Are you excited for Gotham?

Ugh this is just plain dumb. I mean Gordon does hae a lot of story in the comics and he is an integral character in the Batman world but this will not work out so good. There has never been a Batman-Type show that has lasted long. But I guess Fox and DC want to create a lot of hype surrounding the Sequel to Superman so this would be the way to go...
