Deadline is reporting that after a bidding war, Fox has landed Gotham, from Warner Bros. TV and Bruno Heller, with a series commitment. The background story for Gotham is based off of DC Comics‘ most popular character universes, Batman. It explores the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham famous. In Gotham, Gordon is still a detective with the Gotham City Police Department and is yet to meet Batman who will not be part of the series. The Gordon character was created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane in 1939 and appeared in the very first Batman comic.
