Switching off Gotham now would be premature damnation of a potentially-excellent show. Rob explains why…
This article talks about Gotham up to episode five. There are no big spoilers, though.
In some corners of the internet, there are those who are already trying to call time on the Gotham TV show. From the small handful of episodes we’ve seen so far (5 have aired stateside and 2 in the UK), a few folk out there are acting all Ra’s al Ghul about the matter and telling us that Gotham is beyond saving and must be allowed to die.
The tone of some of these pieces, we'd suggest, goes beyond criticism into lambasting. It feels somewhat like the cool kids ganging up on the new boy who read the questions wrong in his school entrance exam and landed himself in the bottom set for everything. Sure, there have been mistakes, but »
A huge amount of thought went into fall's most lavishly costumed new show. Below Fox's Gotham designer, Lisa Padovani, reveals the inspirations behind the clothing for Gotham City's most notorious villains (and hero): Selina Kyle: "She is probably the most modern; we did a steampunk variation on her. Her goggles on top her head are like her ears. She’s always sneaking around so she’s all in black. It's a cat burglar feeling." Oswald Cobblepot: "Everybody’s got such an iconic image in their mind of what the Penguin is. We’ve seen a lot of shows where »

It’s a strange power. Almost a mutant ability. Being right for the wrong reason.
Ask anyone who’s played a round of trivia with me, they’ll tell you. I frequently figure out the correct answer by making logical deductions from a known fact. Then, when I give my reasons for my answer, I’m told my “known” fact was incorrect. Still, I came up with the right answer. For the wrong reason.
Oh it’s a thing, all right. It exists. And for proof you have to look no farther than Batgirl Annual v 4 # 2.
In the story, Batgirl and Poison Ivy were investigating a large, fenced-in medical research compound in Kane County somewhere on the mainland just outside of Gotham City. Why they were there isn’t really important to this column. So I’m not going to bother explaining. That way I don’t have to write another spoiler warning. »

Warner Bros. unleashed a huge list of planned DC movies just yesterday, and one of them was David Ayer’s Suicide Squad movie, which is set to hit right after Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice in 2016. Today, we’re hearing that Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie and Will Smith have all been approached for roles.
The film, which is based on the comic book series of the same name, created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru, will possibly see a host of DC villain’s contained within in it, potentially including Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Bane, Killer Frost, Poison Ivy, Count Vertigo, Deathstroke, and Harley Quinn.
We have absolutely no idea as to who has been approached for which role (we’re guessing Hardy for Bane – ?), or if they are being looked at for the same roles, but the source is a solid one; The Hollywood Reporter.
As far as we can tell, »

If you’ve ever cosplayed, or even just been close enough to smell the cosplayers at Comic-Con, you’ve probably realized that superhero costumes aren’t really designed for extreme climates. Or even just regular climates. This comic — "We All Have That One Season..." — by deviant artist Nebezial highlights the flaws in Batman and his rogues’ costumes. I should point out, all of these problems could be solved by moving. Poison Ivy could move to L.A. where the leaves don’t turn, Harley Quinn would probably do well in Miami, and Batman could hit the far north where it never gets too hot. Stockholm, maybe? I’ve seen The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. He would have plenty to do. Or if he’s too attached to his dysfunctional relationship with Gotham, he could have a summer suit based on Superman’s new, sun-friendly costume. Of course, Mr. Freeze »

In the world of Fox's "Gotham," Future Batman is a sad middle schooler. Future Riddler is a puzzle enthusiast working for Gotham Pd. Future Catwoman is an agile girl with trust issues. And Future Poison Ivy is just a kid with some interest in horticulture. Perhaps that's why it's so much fun to watch Robin Lord Taylor strutting or waddling his stuff as Oswald Cobblepot. No, he isn't The Penguin, but Oswald is well on his way to being an ingratiating little budding psychopath. "I don't know if there was ever a completely 'normal' Oswald," Taylor said when he stopped by the HitFix video studio last week, referencing the eccentric performance by Carol Kane as Mama Cobblepot as some of the origin for the eventual supervillain. When last we saw Oswald, he was popping up at Jim Gordon's door, which is sure to cause awkwardness since so far as several crime lords know, »

Director: Danny Cannon
Writer: Bruno Heller
Synopsis: A new recruit in Captain Sarah Essen’s Gotham City Police Department, Detective James Gordon is paired with Harvey Bullock to solve one of Gotham’s highest-profile cases: the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne.
Verdict: After 75 years worth of Comic Books, 10 different animated shows, 8 big screen movies and 5 faces of Batman…it’s fair to say that Gotham had it’s fair share of anticipation. When it was first announced that a live action television series chronicling the early years of Gotham City was in development, the news was met with an equal amount of criticism and curiosity. After the CW’s Smallville took 10 years to put a cape on Tom Welling’s Clark Kent, »

From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome), Gotham is the origin story for a number of the characters in the Batman universe, including Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler and Poison Ivy, as it shows what made them the formidable adversaries that they will eventually become. At its core, it is the story of Detective James Gordon’s (Ben McKenzie) rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil, and it chronicles the birth of one of the most popular superheroes of our time. During this exclusive interview with Collider, co-stars Robin Lord Taylor (who gives a memorable break-out performance as Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin) and Cory Michael Smith (Edward Nygma, aka The Riddler) talked about how they each came to this show, having to read a fake scene for their auditions, the anticipation and excitement they have in being a part of this show, »

The Halloween season has arrived!
The Halloween season has arrived and we're kicking off the fall festivities with a look back at some of our all-time favorite celebrity Halloween costumes – (and no, they're not sexy versions of Disney's Frozen!)
Daytime TV Hosts
Without a doubt, the biggest costume showdown each year is between the daytime hosts of TV. There's The Talk, The View, Live with Kelly and Michael, Good Morning America, and The Today Show (complete with Matt Lauer in Baywatch drag!).
News: What Would Disney Princesses Dress Up As For »
It's that time of year again! Everyone is gearing up for Halloween, and celebrities are no exception. Hollywood stars are known for going all-out with wild, wacky and sometimes super-sexy Halloween costumes. Some stars choose to dress like their famous peers, with Paris Hilton and Kelly Ripa both going as Miley Cyrus last year. Other celebs switch it up, like Kim Kardashian, who has turned heads as Catwoman, the Queen of Hearts and Poison Ivy. Let's not forget couple's costumes! Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick went as Batman and Robin, and Gwen Stefani and Tony Kanal brought the '70s back as Sandy and Danny from Grease. Can't get enough of these crazy looks?

Earlier today at New York Comic-Con, I was able to participate in a roundtable interview with Ben McKenzie for Gotham. On the hit Fox show, McKenzie plays Detective James Gordon, and the show is about his rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil while introducing a number of the characters in the Batman universe, including Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler and Poison Ivy. While all shows take a bit of time to find a rhythm that works, Gotham is loaded with a talented cast and executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome), so I'm rooting for it. During the interview, McKenzie talked about why he wanted to take on the role after playing a cop on Southland, how he likes to approach things as an actor, what's coming up on future episodes, and he reveals that tomorrow night's episode introduces Arkham Asylum, saying it's »

DeviantArt user NoFlutter created this fun, gender-swapped version of the Batman villains Joker and Harley Quinn. It seems as if they were done in a style of anime, and I have to say that those costume designs she has the characters wearing are spectacular. I love the style and the details that are presented in the costumes. I included a work in progress sketch of the illustration below, as well as another piece from the artist featuring Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and Catwoman.

"Somebody save me/I’ve been waiting for you"
If excitement about tonight's UK premiere of Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham has got you caterwauling the lyrics to the Smallville theme tune on rooftops in anticipation, early whispers from fellow Bat-fans over in the Us who’ve had a look at the first episodes are saying there is much for us to look forward to as we wait for it to descend on Channel 5 here.
So far, we know that the timescale Gotham sticks with sees Batman as barely a notion to the boy-Bruce Wayne, and instead takes Detective James Gordon as its central character. Gordon here is a little different to the ‘Jim’ we’ve come to know, »
It’s a brave new world for DC Comics. After the success of Arrow, the company has launched into the TV market with shows based around their popular characters. But while we wait for Supergirl to go into production and before Constantine hits the airwaves, we have a duo of new shows who have recently debuted on the idiot box. The “Before Batman” series Gotham and the Crimson Speedster’s return to television, The Flash.
But which was better?
Gotham‘s pilot was lambasted by the majority of those who saw it. Our own Anthony Stokes hasn’t been kind with his reviews and even penned an article claiming the show to be “pointless”. When speaking with other members of the Flickering Myth writing staff, the feeling seems mutual. Editor-in-chief Gary Collinson (who »

At its core, it is the story of Detective James Gordon’s (Ben McKenzie) rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil, and it chronicles the birth of one of the most popular superheroes of our time. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Camren Bicondova (who plays Selina Kyle, the future Catwoman) talked about what it means to her to get to be a part of the DC universe, not even knowing which role she was up for when she was auditioning, how special she feels to get to explore a side of the iconic character that we »

A lot of people love “Gotham,” the new Batman-themed show on Fox. Critics have given it praise for providing a new look to the Batman franchise, but if I have one big problem with the show, it’s that they are really creating a circular type of history with these characters. How is it that the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents was investigated by then-Detective Gordon and Harvey Bullock, but was also witnessed by a soon-to-be Catwoman and also involves a young Poison Ivy (now known as Ivy Pepper)? Not to mention the fact that the soon-to-be Riddler works for the Gotham Pd and an unnamed comedian auditions for Fish Mooney’s [ Read More ]
The post Nicholas D’Agosto Cast As Harvey Dent in Gotham appeared first on Shockya.com. »
Fox's Batman TV-spin-off Gotham has been underway for a couple of weeks now, but if you thought it was already heavy on the cameo super-villainy, there's yet more to come. Late to the party is Nicholas D'Agosto, who's just been cast as district attorney Harvey Dent.Dent is, of course, the upright man who will become Two-Face after half his face is burned horribly by acid. He joins a roster of nascent knavery that already includes The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), Poison Ivy (Clare Foley), Catwoman (Carmen Bicondova), The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), Carmine Falcone (John Doman), newcomer Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith) and a yet-to-be-revealed Joker (although we have an out-there theory about that).D'Agosto is best known currently as Dr Ethan Haas from Masters Of Sex. Before that he racked up nine episodes on Heroes as West Rosen in 2007, and has shown his face in the likes of House, »
Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham is continuing to fill out its cast of recognizable faces. In the pilot alone there were nods to The Riddler, Penguin, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and even The Joker, and now the show is adding Harvey Dent aka Two-Face to its roster. THR reports that Nicholas D’Agosto has landed a recurring role on the series as the city’s assistant district attorney, who of course later becomes the villainous Two-Face. Some of the show’s depictions of these famous villains are better than others—Robin Lord Taylor is quite creepy as Penguin, but Cory Michael Smith’s iteration of Edward Nigma (who later becomes the Riddler) is downright annoying and Camren Bicondova’s Catwoman (or “Cat” as she likes to be called) is too self-aware, so it’s a bit of a toss-up as to which category Harvey Dent will fall under. More after the jump. »

I watched the pilot and second episode of Gotham back-to-back as I try to do with most new shows; I think it was the smart thing to do with this one considering I felt the pilot was a bloated mess of ideas and winks while the second episode was riveting and worthy of the name. Among the multitude of characters including young versions of The Penguin, Poison Ivy, Selina Kyle, and many others, we haven’t yet seen or heard from Harvey Dent aka Two-Face. Nicholas D’Agosto »
