"The show will track Bruce from a child (around 12 years old) until he puts on a cape (in the finale)." (Whoa, spoiler alert, Kevin! Yeesh).
As soon as this show was announced, my biggest fear was that they would bring in some kid to be a young Bruce Wayne. Who likes brooding kids on TV? Nobody. Now he's not just going to pop up every now and again but be the STAR in every episode? I do not sense a "lighthearted" or "wacky" series here; it will be week after week of resentful child syndrome or of Bruce very, very slowly learning to control his anger or thirst for revenge.
|"Should I start brooding now, or later....?"|
Am I the only one concerned about the longevity of this series? It is called Gotham and matches up with Smallville in the realm of titles but it really could be called We Need To Talk About Bruce.
What say you, fanboys and girls? Will this survive past season one on it's own merits? Or will it depend heavily on forced crossovers?
