    Looks pretty good! I hope the show remembers that Gotham is to slide into darkness and ruin for Batman to be born; if Gordon's allowed to save the day then there will be nothing for Wayne to be inspired by.
     
  2. Looking forward to this starting! :)
     
  3. Have to say that it really does look bloody good, it's hard to judge from 2 minutes of footage but it appears that it's not going to be the sanitized and safe procedural I feared and it's obvious that a lot of care went into shaping the look of the show. Hopefully this will be the standout show for the coming year, after all, they have a wealth of material to choose from and it should be hard to mess it up.
     
  4. Fox has released a new spot for the series that focuses on the rise of the classic villains of Gotham City, such as Penguin, Catwoman, and Fish Mooney.

     
  5. This is getting more and more interesting.

    Anyone know when it is due to start?
     
  6. This might be the US air date but some time around the 8th September.

  7. Not too long to wait. Something to look forward to during the dark nights (see what I did there?:p)
     
  8. "Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world's greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon's story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world's most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them - the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker?

    'GOTHAM' is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller ('The Mentalist,' 'Rome'), 'GOTHAM' follows one cop's rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.

    Growing up in Gotham City's surrounding suburbs, JAMES GORDON (Ben McKenzie, 'Southland,' 'The O.C.') romanticized the city as a glamorous and exciting metropolis where his late father once served as a successful district attorney. Now, two weeks into his new job as a Gotham City detective and engaged to his beloved fiancée, BARBARA KEAN (Erin Richards, 'Open Grave,' 'Breaking In'), Gordon is living his dream - even as he hopes to restore the city back to the pure version he remembers it was as a kid.

    Brave, honest and ready to prove himself, the newly-minted detective is partnered with the brash, but shrewd police legend HARVEY BULLOCK (Donal Logue, 'Sons of Anarchy,' 'Terriers,' 'Vikings,' 'Copper'), as the two stumble upon the city's highest-profile case ever: the murder of local billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne. At the scene of the crime, Gordon meets the sole survivor: the Waynes' hauntingly intense 12-year-old son, BRUCE (David Mazouz, 'Touch'), toward whom the young detective feels an inexplicable kinship. Moved by the boy's profound loss, Gordon vows to catch the killer.

    As he navigates the often-underhanded politics of Gotham's criminal justice system, Gordon will confront imposing gang boss FISH MOONEY (Jada Pinkett Smith, 'The Matrix' films, 'HawthoRNe,' 'Collateral'), and many of the characters who will become some of fiction's most renowned, enduring villains, including a teenaged SELINA KYLE/the future CATWOMAN (acting newcomer Camren Bicondova) and OSWALD COBBLEPOT/THE PENGUIN (Robin Lord Taylor, 'The Walking Dead,' 'Another Earth').

    Although the crime drama will follow Gordon's turbulent and singular rise through the Gotham City police department, led by Police Captain SARAH ESSEN (Zabryna Guevara, 'Burn Notice'), it also will focus on the unlikely friendship Gordon forms with the young heir to the Wayne fortune, who is being raised by his unflappable butler, ALFRED (Sean Pertwee, 'Camelot,' 'Elementary'). It is a friendship that will last them all of their lives, playing a crucial role in helping the young boy eventually become the crusader he's destined to be.

    'GOTHAM' is based upon characters published by DC Comics and is produced by Warner Bros. Television. Executive producer Bruno Heller ('The Mentalist') wrote the pilot, which will be directed and executive-produced by Emmy Award nominee Danny Cannon (the 'CSI' series, 'Nikita')."
     

  9. Fox has released eight character posters for their highly anticipated series Gotham. They come from EW and feature the main characters of the series, including Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot, Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Jada Pinkett-Smith as Fish Mooney, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma, Donal Logue as Det. Harvey Bullock, and Clare Foley as Ivy Pepper.

    Before there was Batman, there was 'Gotham.' Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world's greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon's story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world's most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker?

  10. Maybe I'm being silly here but who is Fish Mooney? I know who the other "citizens" become but I've never heard of Fish Mooney before :oops:
