Fox’s Batman-Centric Drama “Gotham” Coming to Netflix

Posted by monique On September - 3 - 2014 0 Comment

“Gotham” hasn’t even made its premiere on Fox yet, but Netflix is already snapping up the property. Netflix has acquired the rights to the Batman-based television show well in advance of the show’s premiere. This deal is unprecedented for a show that has yet to even air its first episode.

According to Deadline, Netflix and Warner Bros. announced that the show will begin streaming in 2015, way after “Gotham” airs on Fox. The deal also further cements Warner Bros. relationship with the streaming service, which was already founded through another historic streaming deal covering all CW series.

“Gotham” is one of Fox’s most buzzed-about series, due to its origins in Batman lore. The show, which aims to give viewers a more in-depth look at Gotham City history before Batman, stars Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon. As we know, Gordon eventually becomes the city’s commissioner, but as of right now, Gordon’s tenure as detective starts with the double murder of young Bruce Wayne’s parents. The story will also feature the origins of many of Batman’s later foes, including the Penguin, Catwoman, The Riddler and others. New villains, such as high-ranking criminal Fish Mooney, will also be introduced as a part of Gotham City’s underworld.

“Gotham” also stars Jada Pinkett Smith, Donal Logue, Sean Pertwee, Camren Bicondova and David Mazouz and will premiere Sept. 22.
