Bruno Heller who’s the creator of Gotham, spoke exclusively to ComicBook.com on exploring The Court of Owls on the television series sometime down the line, depending on the longevity of the show.
When asked on having an interest in exploring The Court of Owls, Heller had this to say:
“Yeah, absolutely, I’m interested. I won’t say that it’s part of – I don’t even want to say that, because I don’t want to spoil part of the story, The Court of Owls is deep, deep, deep Gotham mythology. The comic book fans know about it, but I would suspect the larger audience is not so familiar. We sometimes have to make a distinction between the ‘Nolan-era Batman movie fans’ and the comic book fans. It’s not that they’re two separate audiences, just that there are two levels of engagement. Court of Owls is very much deep DC mythology.”
When asked if The Court of Owls is coming to Gotham, Heller responded with the following:
“We are absolutely going to explore that world down the line. Looking at the longevity of the show, we have to hold some cards back, we can’t just throw all of the elements, all of the story at once, the long arc of the show is Bruce Wayne’s journey of discovery down into the depths of the physical and meta-physical world of Gotham. The Court of Owls is a brilliant conceit that will absolutely be part of our storytelling. I just won’t tell you when.”
Looks like The Court of Owls will be coming to Gotham, but it doesn’t sound like it’ll be happening right away.
