Summary

Instead of giving you a summary of the script itself, I'm going to give some backstory. I wrote this pilot with a good friend of mine I'd say about a decade ago. Now I'm not really looking for critical feedback on it cause I haven't worked on this since, and also if I were I'd probably do a lot of things different. I like to think I grew in my storytelling.

I decided to post it here because, I don't know if you're aware, but Matt Reeves (the director of the new Batman film) and the showrunner of Boardwalk Empire are making a show that's probably going to be in the vein of this. I'm not angry or anything. We wrote this for fun and knew that we didn't have license to any of the characters. But why write something that's only going to be shelved. I'd like people, other than my friends, to see it. And this is the site to do it.

Funny enough, a day or two after we sent this out to friends for feedback, FOX announced that they were developing the show Gotham. Talk about timing haha.

But yeah, I just want to put this out there for fun. Not in any way saying I CAME UP WITH IT FIRST or anything like that. I'm happy this show is being made by competent people. If you decide to read this, I want you to enjoy.

So I'd love to hear your thoughts. feedback and scores. If you love Batman and his lore as much as I do, I like to think you'd enjoy it, but we shall see. Cheers all.

The writer has a lot of their own understanding of the genre and his thoughts of what the characters motiv...
