My problem is that I see a 20/30 year gap betwenn Wayne/Kyle and to a certain degree Napier vs Alfred and Gordon. If we are looking at a young Gordon, guys like Wayne would be teenagers.

Well, that wouldn't be a problem if this was CW. But since this is Fox... no, I still wouldn't quite rule it out.

Jack Napier becoming Joker is ONLY in Batman '89, joker's pre red-hood identity has never been revealed in the comics iirc.

I was under the impression that Jack Napier was going to be this series' continuity as well. Rechecking my sources, I appear to have been wrong, though that's certainly still an option at this point.

But why?

Also, I'm interested in how this series will look. Hopefully not like some generic CBS cop drama.

A throwaway line in the AICN article where I first read about Gordon's casting. Turns out the columnist was only speculating as well, so never mind.

That's fair enough, if you read it somewhere, but I wouldn't be particularly happy if they did choose to go the Jack Napier route. I prefer when they keep his origins a mystery. I wouldn't mind if they went with The Killing Joke's origin but iirc that origin story was implied to have been made up.

cool, also i didn't know Sean Pertwee was in Elementary, I might have to start watching it, that's a good choice. Dunno who the girls will play, probably just cops in Gordon's team

It says in the article, dude. One's playing a cop, the other's playing Gordon's fiancee.

It gets better. According to the Batman wiki, Barbara was only Gordon's first wife. They divorced after he had an affair. His mistress and second wife was named... Wait for it... Sarah Essen. And a Captain Essen has just been cast as well. Most intriguing.

interesting indeed, but Gordon is suppoed to have at least 1 kid with Barbera so maybe they'll have "sexual tension" but I hope they don't rush it and have him leave Barbera 1 before she gives birth to Barbera 2.

Well, there are some continuities in which Barbara dies in a car accident. Though I quite agree that little Oracle should come first, whatever happens.

Not to mention- yeah, she's way too young.

I don't see the problem here. Selina and Bruce should be about the same age, so of course she's just a kid. Also, I don't see the problem in making Catwoman a lifelong thief who started at a young age. Then again, the black leather and the poses are pushing it a bit. Hopefully the actress was just playing around for that photo.

I really hate to agree with you on this, especially since it's not a CW show, but this is Fox we're dealing with. Unless Seth MacFarlane or Matt Groening are somehow involved, this is gonna get very ugly very quickly.

Yeah, I was refering to that. Selina Kykle as a life long burglar that started at a young age? I´m cool with that. Sexualizing pree-teens?Not cool. It´s weird as fuck.
