TV WEEK: Gotham series premiere billboards...

Gotham series premiere billboard
Gotham is one of most anticipated and promising shows of the new Fall season, but when you have such storied history from the world of DC Comics Batman to draw upon that's a major head start over other freshman series with no solid fanbase.

This origin series for many of Batman's foes and allies takes place in the Gotham City of the Caped Crusader's youth and chronicles the early days in the corrupt city of a rookie detective who will grow to be police 'Commissioner Gordon'.

Southland's Ben McKenzie stars as 'James Gordon' and he'll be crossing paths with the likes of some familiar thieves, killers and vigilantes like 'The Penguin', 'Catwoman', 'The Riddler' and even a few new adversaries like Jada Pinkett Smith's 'Fish Mooney'.

This series premiere billboard for Gotham certainly has a noir detective feel and was first spied at the busy intersection of Fairfax Avenue and San Vicente Boulevard on August 27, plus later along Westwood Boulevard on September 14, 2014.

If you're a Batman fan, be sure to also check out all these movie billboards for The Dark Knight Trilogy and video games based on the Caped Crusader.

Now that The CW has two series based on DC Comics characters, Arrow and The Flash, plus Fox has this Batman prequel series, it'll be interesting to see if viewers will get confused with the advent of a DC cinematic universe with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and these stand-alone TV shows existing at the same time, whilst in the meantime Marvel seems to be building a more cohesive television and big screen experience.

Well the DC Multiverse is no stranger to a crisis or two of multiple Earths, so only time will tell.

UPDATED: Now that the first season of Gotham is over it's time for Fox to see if it can nab any Emmy nominations for its Batman prequel show, especially as now we know it's returning for a second season.
