Gotham Timeline

What is on the Gotham timeline?

The Gotham timeline consists of DC Comics characters from the Batman franchise focusing on James Gordon’s early years in the Gotham City Police Department. This means that Bruce Wayne has not yet become the Caped Crusader. The series then serves as the origin stories of several Batman villains, including the Penguin, the Riddler, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, the Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze, and Hugo Strange. There is some confusion as to when this takes place in the Batman universe. The producers of Gotham have said that Gotham does not take place in a definite time period. However if Batman exists today what was it like 18 years or so years ago. This makes sense since there are only flip phones, 4X3 CRT TVs, no real computers, and 1990’s era cars. Based on this information then the series would take place in the early 2000s but I could be wrong. If you have any thoughts on this timeline please visit our Contact page and drop us a message.
