The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. look to have some TV competition in the form of James Gordon. Fox has won a bidding war for Gotham, a show centered on James Gordon when he is a detective in Gotham City before anyone ever heard of a man prowling the streets in a bat suit. Gotham was written by the creator of The Mentalist, Bruno Heller and has been given a series order by Fox so expect to see this on the schedule sooner rather than later. Next fall is the best bet.

Networks are quickly adding comic based series with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC and Arrow on The CW. The Flash will be introduced on Arrow this season also with the possibility of his own series down the road.

Gotham could very easily work especially if the show takes a darker tone than people expect and focus on disturbing crimes like in Criminal Minds. Casting will be interesting also because I am thinking it will be a mid to late-40’s Gordon and fans will no doubt let their opinions be known if they do not agree with whoever takes on the role.
