We keep hearing more details about Fox’s ‘Gotham‘ and finally we have a few shots from the show being created! While not the full cast we do get to see Ben McKenzie (‘The O.C.’, ‘Southland’) as Detective Jim Gordon, Donal Logue (‘Max Payne’, Blade’) as Harvey Bullock, and Robin Lord Taylor (The Walking Dead‘, ‘Another Earth’) as The Penguin! No shots yet of David Mazouz (‘Touch’) as Bruce Wayne though there is reference to his parents slayings in the shots below.
If you zoom in on the headline on the paper that The Penguin is reading in the last shot you might notice that it says “HERO COPS SLAY WAYNE KILLER: WAYNE FUNERAL SUNDAY” with The Penguin smirking. Is he enjoying the fall of the rich or does he know something that the paper doesn’t know? At the very least it would appear that a pair of police, possibly Gordon and Bullock, kill who they believe to be responsible for the deaths of Bruce’s parents.
What do you think of the first shots from ‘Gotham’? Do the characters have the look you want to see for them? Share your thoughts below!
“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.
