When last we left the guys and gals of Gotham, a lot had happened. The Penguin had finally ascended to the top of the Gotham underworld after Fish Mooney appeared to fall to her death. Don Falcone had left the city, and with Maroni dead, it would appear that the criminal old guard is no more. Barbara Kean had flipped out, murdered her parents and tried to kill Leslie Thompkins. Detective Gordon had vowed to bring down the corrupt Commissioner Loeb. Bruce Wayne had found a hidden cave beneath his father’s study.
We’re used to seeing Superman as in control and good tempered. He may be a man of action and willing to throw a punch in the name of justice, but rarely does he get mad. And yet, that’s the only way to describe him in one of the latest photos to be released from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Squaring off against Batman, the Man of Steel looks moments away from letting loose with a blast of heat vision. We think it’s fair to say that in the battle between these two heroes, the gloves are off!
Of all of Bruce Wayne’s friends and allies, none are more important than his loyal butler. After the tragic death of his parents, it was Alfred who raised the young “master Bruce,” before going on to become his most trusted adviser in the Batman’s mission to protect the streets of Gotham. Today, we received our first look at actor Sean Pertwee (Elementary, Camelot) in this crucial Gotham role.
Don’t know about you, but we anticipate spending quite a bit of time in Gotham in the future, for what is shaping up to be one heck of an awesome television series.
Following the exploits of rookie detective James Gordon (played by Ben McKenzie), the upcoming Fox television show will explore the infamous titular city years before the Dark Knight first cast his vengeful shadow upon the criminal underground, back when Bruce Wayne was still a young boy that only recently saw his parents murdered right before his eyes.
