Arguably no live-action comic book adaption has become more willing to take risks than Gotham. The Fox series started its life as a simple Batman prequel series in 2014, but it has since evolved into something much more complicated and bizarre. Over the course of the last three years, fans of The Dark Knight's history have learned to throw out their expectations whenever they watch this show because expectations are pretty much useless in Gotham City. Even when it has broached a classic Batman tale, Gotham has always found ways to take extreme left turns with its storytelling and delve into completely unfamiliar territory.

Considering the sheer depth of the Batman mythos, there is always room for even stranger adaptations. To build on that idea, we have compiled a list of six iconic Batman stories that Gotham should consider adapting in some form or another in the near future. Take a look at our list and let us know what classic Batman stories you think deserve the Gotham treatment. Now, without further ado, let's kick this list off with a story about Gotham's most enigmatic character.

Riddler Hijacks The City - Batman: Zero Year - Dark City

Out of all the characters on Gotham, one of the most fascinating character to watch over the course of the last two and a half seasons has been Edward Nygma. Beginning the series as little more than a gimmick character, Nygma has experienced a serious fall from grace, and he has subsequently gone on to genuinely embrace his status as one of Gotham's most notorious big bads. Now we think it's time for him to step things up a notch. On that note, we believe that it's time for the Dark City storyline to play out in live-action. During that particular Zero Year arc, Nygma embraces his status as The Riddler during the early years of Batman's career and uses his vast technical know-how to knock the power out in Gotham and flood the city. His one condition for turning the power back on is for a "worthy opponent" to face him, and I think we wall know who that is.
