Re: Your ideas for a CW Batman tv series
How to make a successful Batman tv series? Don't make it about Batman.
Adapt Gotham Central. The character is mentioned every now and then and his "presence" is felt occasionally but, really, it's a show about Gotham and the non-costumed people who keep it safe.
Cop dramas are popular on TV and I imagine it'd be cheaper to produce than something with a lot of flashy characters like Smallville...
