Batman - Batman Spin-off Heading To Tv

A new show based around the Batman franchise is coming to Tv.

Small screen bosses are working on a new series called Gotham, which will tell the story of Police Commissioner James Gordon and will be set long before Batman turns up to save the city from bad guys.

It is believed the Caped Crusader himself, who will be played by Ben Affleck in a new movie, will not feature in the show, which will be broadcast on U.S. network Fox.

Gordon was previously played by Gary Oldman in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, while Pat Hingle played him in four previous films and Neil Hamilton held the role in 1960s Tv series Batman, all based on the DC Comics.

It is not known whether Oldman will return to the role for the new small screen project, which follows a rival Marvel show, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., onto the small screen.

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is based on the Avengers franchise, premiered in America on Tuesday (24Sep13).
