Re: Gotham PD show in "Nolanverse" being developed by the WB

I don't see the comparison to Arrow. Arrow begins with an adult Oliver Queen already in his vigilante role, taking on fully formed nemeses. The show has been about his maturation from vigilante to hero, sure, but he's been in costume since week one. This sounds far, far more like Smallville. And we've already had Smallville for ten years and it kind of drove the concept into the ground.

I hope the Gordon-centric, police-procedural focus hasn't been entirely abandoned. That's the one thing that could make this more than a Smallville rehash.
