Batman: The Golden Age Vol. 1 contains Detective Comics #27-45, Batman #1-3, and New York World’s Fair Comics #2 – so it really hones in on the Caped Crusader’s first published outings as Gotham’s go-to vigilante. Director Matt Reeves has said that The Batman will focus on Batman’s detective abilities, emphasizing a rogues gallery and offering a more mystery, Noir-influenced take on Gotham City.
Though no one knows yet if Wright’s Jim Gordon will hold the title of “commissioner” in The Batman, or if the story will have him start out as a detective or lieutenant, Gordon was police commissioner in his first appearance in Detective Comics #27.
