Batman's crime-ridden universe Gotham City is reportedly heading for the small screen.
According to Deadline, US television network Fox has nabbed the rights for a new series entitled Gotham, which "explores the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains who made Gotham City famous."
While caped crusader Batman will not appear in the series, the fictional world in which it takes place will be familiar to fans of the much-loved DC Comics series and recent big-budget movie adaptations.
The series will be overseen by the creator of The Mentalist, Bruno Heller, with Fox already promising to air the show before the pilot has even been shot.
As yet, there is no word on casting plans or a premiere date for the eagerly-anticipated new series.
In other Batman-related news, it was recently announced that Ben Affleck will take on the role of the man in black in the upcoming Superman: Man of Steel sequel.
