Yesterday saw the news surface that the Detective James Gordon Gotham TV series slated for Fox will feature Batman villains and a young Bruce Wayne.

Now we get some further details from the TCA Press Tour presentation for Fox and Chairman of Entertainment Kevin Reilly.

Via The Collider:

REILLY: Batman is in it, as young Bruce Wayne.  This is an origin story.  This is what I love about it.  This is not like some of the things where you’ve bought a franchise, but then you have a bunch of characters no one’s ever heard of, or an offshoot that we make up.  This is all of the classic Batman characters, with a young Bruce Wayne, with Detective Gordon before he’s Commissioner Gordon, with the Penguin, with the Riddler, and with the Joker.  All of those characters are going to arc and become who they are.  I’ve read the script.  It’s really good.  It’s going to be this operatic soap that has a slightly larger-than-life quality.  And we will arc a young Bruce Wayne from a child into the final episode of the series, when he will put on the cape.

REILLY:  We’re playing with that with casting now.  He’s a young boy, but my guess would be that he’d be somewhere around 12.

Should be an interesting show as obviously it will deal with Bruce following his parents' death as well as most likely featuring Alfred.

Related: Further details include Gotham will be in the vein of the Nolan Batman movies and not connected to the DC movie universe.
