While the colorful villains may be what many people associate with Gotham, the show’s heart is embodied by one man: Jim Gordon. A good cop trying—and failing—to keep his conscious clean in a city in which the good guys only win by being bad, it’s Jim Gordon that makes an often over-the-top show like Gotham relatable. It’s his story in which we find the message beneath the show’s madness.
You’re never too young to tangle with an immortal villain.
Over its three seasons, Gotham’s Detective Jim Gordon and young Bruce Wayne have tangled with the Penguin, the Riddler, Hugo Strange, the Scarecrow, Mister Freeze and the Mad Hatter. But their newest adversary is in another League entirely.
Warner Bros. Television announced today that Alexander Siddig has been cast in the role of Ra’s al Ghul on Gotham.
Last week, to celebrate the debut of our newest TV show, Lucifer star Tom Ellis took control of our Instagram for a day, taking us behind the scenes of the sinfully good Fox series and giving us a tease of what’s ahead. Tom was just the latest #DCTV star to take over our Instagram—we’ve also handed the keys over to his costar Lesley-Ann Brandt. You can discover what went down with Tom and Lesley below. Take a look, and don’t forget to watch Lucifer tonight at 9 p.m. (8 p.m. CST) on Fox.
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.
