Batman Writer Alan Brennert, ‘Gotham’, And The Truth About DC Comics Media Royalties

Untitled-2

A favorite among many longtime and hardcore Batman fans, writer Alan Brennert released a statement on Facebook this week regarding his lack of compensation for the use of the character Barbara Kean Gordon in the upcoming Fox TV show Gotham, a live-action series based on the Batman characters. Brennert wrote a story in 1981 where the character was created as the fiancée of then-Lt. James Gordon. While it was an out-of-continuity story, the character was later brought into canon as Commissioner Gordon’s wife (most notably in Batman: Year One, and in the films Batman Begins and The Dark Knight). In the television series' pilot episode -- which ComicsAlliance staffers have seen and verified -- Barbara Kean is introduced as James Gordon's bride-to-be, played by Erin Richards.

For this reason, Brennert requested equity in the character and compensation for her use in Gotham – a request that has been denied, which has in turn inspired consternation among Brennert's fans, industry observers and other creators.

‘Gotham’ Exec Producers Say Show Will Reveal ‘Psychological Truth’ Of Batman

Gotham-Fox1

For months now, Fox has insisted that its new series Gotham isn't a Batman show. It's a Jim Gordon show.

However, executive producers Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon, who wrote and directed the pilot respectively, were more than happy to tell IGN that the Gotham City of the series will eventually forge Batman from the pre-teen Bruce Wayne, who is a regular character on the show. (The secret is that he'll be dark and damaged. A bold new vision!) They also discussed how they established the look and feel of the city, and a lot more about their goals.

New ‘Gotham’ Character Portraits Include Poison Ivy And Her Completely Different Name

IvyMain

Viewers have had plenty of opportunities to see the lead characters of Fox's new not-Batman-we're-serious series Gotham staring ahead and looking solemn, but they haven't seen everyone just yet.

Entertainment Weekly has published eight new character portaits, and though they include some familiar faces -- Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Jada Pinkett-Smith as Fish Mooney, and David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, to name a few --the feature also comes with some new ones. Not only are viewers getting their first really good look at Edward Nygma, a.k.a. the Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), they're also seeing the show's version of Poison Ivy, played by Clare Foley. You'll notice she's not Pamela Isley anymore.

‘Gotham’ Star Ben McKenzie Says ‘This Is Not A Batman-From-The-’50s Kind Of Show’

Ben-McKenzie-Detective-James-Gordon-Gotham-main

Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller already sat under Entertainment Weekly's spotlight to talk about the new Fox series, and now it's series star Ben McKenzie's turn.

McKenzie will play a young James Gordon on the show (which the producers have promised will not be about Batman, even though there's a preteen Bruce Wayne running around). He told EW pretty unequivocally that the show will be a darker take, with plenty of moral gray areas, in case you were wondering whether it would be like every other Batman media property of the past 30 years or so. Here are some highlights from his interview.
