“Gotham” TV Series Starts With Gordon Investigating The Death Of Bruce Wayne’s Parents

December 3, 2013

According to Bleeding Cool, their source at Warner Bros. revealed to them that, “the pilot script for GOTHAM has Detective Jim Gordon trying to solve a very famous double homicide.” 

It doesn’t necessarily say Thomas and Martha Wayne, but since the plot follows a younger Jim Gordon, what other double homicide would it be?

Word is that the show will focus solely on Jim Gordon and his early years meaning Batman won’t be making an appearance. This is another reason why the Wayne’s murder makes sense. In the show Bruce would still be a child and years away from becoming Batman.

I personally think it’s a good idea to keep Batman out of it. That way Gordon becomes the sole focus of the show without audiences waiting for Batman to arrive. It also gives the writers more freedom.

Now all we need is for Bryan Cranston to be cast as Gordon and we’re set.
