In the battle between Marvel and DC, it is fair to say that Marvel have been dominating DC on the big screen, although DC have been working hard to try to catch Marvel up and it is certainly making for a very exciting few years ahead. As for the small screen, DC have been making great progress in recent years and is now preparing for another exciting new television series.
Fans are eagerly anticipating the upcoming television series Gotham, which will see a young Bruce Wayne before his Batman days, while focusing on Jim Gordon who is going up against a number of famous Gotham criminals. As well as seeing many fans favourite Batman villains in Gotham, it looks like we might get to see a few familiar heroes in the series too.
While it is known that Sara Paxton will appear in a few episodes of Gotham season one, it has also been suggested that her role will get bigger if the show gets picked up for future seasons. We know that Sara will play the role of Bette Kane in Gotham and those of you who know your Batman history will know that Bette Kane appeared as Batgirl in the comics.
So, since it has been confirmed that Sara Paxton will see her role as Bette Kane get bigger in future seasons of Gotham, does that mean that we will see her appear as Batgirl in the series? Well, in our opinion, it does seem unlikely, since Bruce Wayne is still just a young boy and it is highly unlikely that they would introduce Batgirl before they see Bruce Wayne become Batman.
