Fox has unleashed a new quick-cut clip for its upcoming Batman prequel ‘Gotham’ focusing on the famous Batman origin, dropping pearls and all.  We see the series real star, Ben McKenzie as James Gordon comforting the newly orphaned Bruce Wayne, played by David Mazouz.

Though the clip focuses on Bruce Wayne, it also guarantees that the series will not focus solely on the fledgling Dark Knight, with the tag line “The Origin Stories Begin.”  That’s “Stories” plural and the clip also includes Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith) and Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Carmen Bicondova).

The show will air on Mondays this fall on Fox.  The pilot episode will be shown to audiences at San Diego Comic Con along with the pilot for ‘The Flash’ and clips from the premiers of ‘Constantine’ and ‘Arrow’ on July 26th at 8:45 pm in Hall H.  The event will be hosted by ‘Arrow’ leading man Stephen Amell.

Check out the new clip below:
