    Batman is one of the easiest to do well on small screen.

    Some series are too much to be on the small screen. (Batman, Spiderman, X-Men) A HBO show would be more proper of his world.

    Ironman can be on the small screen. His world is not as vast or as compelling as Batman. Does Ironman have a rogues gallery. Ironman's problem on the small screen would be money issues. (budget)

    This basically.

    It's the same reason we dont see Spider-man or Iron Man or any other A-lister on TV.

    Although WB seem to be relaxing because Superman appeared on Supergirl and Batman is set to appear on Titans.

    Spiderman and X-men are build for the small screen, Heroes was basically a X-men knock off and Gifted is pretty good without having access to big guns. Spiderman is built to be a CW drama and they can pretty much smallville it up and never have him in the suit if they wanted. CW Green Arrow is Batman it not hard to imagine Batman show. The properties you mention work on small screen something like Hulk or maybe Ironman is harder because of Cgi need to make the main character work

    There's nothing easy about doing Batman well on a small budget. Without the ability to CGI the cape well and put tons of time into post production lighting effects, you have to start out with extraordinary lighting and cinematography, and a whole lot of time to set up and shoot. Much more than you need for someone like Green Arrow. Flash's effects are pretty simple and repetitious, but with Batman they need to be subtle and complex. Just not gonna happen on a TV budget.
    Why yes, I AM a Mark Goodson/Bill Toddman production.

    Someone else pointed it out, and it bears repeating...

    The reason why Batman isn't on television is the same reason why Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, Green Lantern, etc. aren't on television.

    Marvel and Disney don't want their franchises competing with one another. Also, there are budget considerations to factor in.

    Why would Batman be any more complicated than Green Arrow? As far as the cape, Supergirl has a cape and they rarely have to CGI her cape. And when they do CGI the cape, such as having the cape wrap around Reign's arm,
    it works good enough. Sure there are the loudmouths that nit-pick and complain about everything. But most people would be happy enough. If they can do Supergirl, who is very CGI dependent, they can do Batman.

    Yeah, CGI for the cape is not in any way a necessity.

    At this point I'm burned on cinematic Batman. Give him a rest. Follow the Marvel routine and let your 3rd rate characters shine, be creative. WB could still have Gotham on the IMAX screen without Batman.

    Now, Batman is the ONLY superhero you could do on a Game of Thrones budget and make your money back. His fanbase alone is huge not including general audiences.

    Is he tho?

    For it to have a Game of Thrones budget it as to be a good story that not only grabs comic fans but as well as the general audience. Look at the ratings of Game of Thrones, from 9.5 to a 9 out 10, the show's story has shown that it can capture more than sci-fi fans.

    While I love Batman, I don't think a show about him would ever garner the same ratings from critics.

    It will probably be short lived but glorious.

    Heroes (Season 1) was amazing, The Gifted feels like a knock off of Heroes. X-Men can do well on the big and small screen as they have the stories at a maximum range and dozens of characters. Not so sure about Iron Man, He does not have the supporting cast of characters or the rogues gallery to expend on the small screen unlike Batman or X-men.

    Movies are the major leagues, while TV is the minors. IOW, I only want my favorite characters on the small screen if they can't make it on the silver screen.

    What are Game of thrones,Walking Dead and Daredevil? "TV" is the major leagues as well and with new all streaming services they are pushing premium content . They are several shows with 11 million per episode budgets at 12 episodes that is 138 million dollar show. The Get down had 16 million per show(176) and The Pacific had a 20 million per show for 10 episodes(200). For contrast Aquaman budget is 160 million
