Last week, Warner Bros. Entertainment and Fox released the first official images from Gotham, the highly anticipated Batman prequel series currently in production. The images were a set of five character shots featuring Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot.
The world weary face, the slightly unkempt appearance…and the familiar city skyline that bears the show’s name. It’s all there in this first official character image from Gotham, Fox’s upcoming new series exploring the origin story of eventual Police Commissioner James Gordon (Ben McKenzie – Southland) and the rogues’ gallery of villains that made the city famous.
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.
