Deadline reports that Fox is countering Marvel’s new series Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Fox has gone all out to land the rights to the show from Warner.

The new series will follow Gordon’s early career in the Gotham City PD, focusing on his work as a detective, long before his first meeting with Batman. The Caped Crusader himself will not be a part of the series, although presumably there will be some other faces involved familiar to fans of the comic books.

The Mentalist creator Bruno Heller is heading the project.

Created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane, Commissioner Gordon has appeared in comic books as well as Batman films and series, including in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, where he was played by Gary Oldman. Along with the Superman franchise, the Batman universe is probably the most prized DC property.
