The Dark Knight trilogy’s Jim Gordon weighed in on Fox’s Gotham TV series, with a “perplexed” looking Gary Oldman exclaiming to Access Hollywood: “A show without Batman?”

He may be sceptical but the definitive live action Gordon had advice for his younger counterpart, who’ll be played in the show by Southland‘s Ben McKenzie.

“Go back to the comic-books. That’s what I did… There’s great stuff about Gordon. He had a whole other life.

“I’m sure he’s going to be fabulous,” he added.
