Batman’s Origin Story Is Set To Unravel In New Trailer For Gotham

16 September 2014 7:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With its hotly-anticipated premiere pegged for September 22nd, Fox’s Gotham — an ambitious take on the origin stories of one Jim Gordon — is quickly shaping up to be one of fall’s most intriguing new properties.

Starring Ben McKenzie as the aforementioned crime fighter, the show will be situated in an age before The Batman, with Gordon entering the scene as a rookie member of the local police department who is “destined for greatness.” To achieve this feat, our protagonist must navigate through the corrupt underbelly of Gotham city, an unforgiving world that will introduce viewers to an array of famous DC villains in their nascent state — including The Riddler, Poison Ivy and Catwoman.

Not only that, it seems ardent fans can look forward to seeing some of the lesser known characters of Batman’s legacy on screen, with Jada Pinkett Smith’s Fish Mooney being a prime example. And »

Ben McKenzie previews the 'swift and brutal' world of 'Gotham'

15 September 2014 8:51 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

In today’s world of comic-book remakes, it’s rare that an actor gets to portray multiple characters within any given universe. It’s even more rare that an actor gets to take part in a story that hasn’t been told before. But Ben McKenzie has done both.

In 2011, McKenzie got the chance to voice an animated Bruce Wayne in Batman: Year One, and three years later, he’s playing a young James Gordon in Fox’s upcoming series, Gotham. And despite the fact that Gotham is a prequel and therefore telling a new story, McKenzie is very aware »

DC Comics Heroes and Villains Get Norman Rockwell Art Treatment

14 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here's a series of Norman Rockwell inspired "Saturday Evening Post" cover art that features some classic DC Comics heroes and villains. The art was created by DeviantArt user OnlyMilo a.k.a. Ruiz Burgos, and they include Wonder Woman, Clark Kent, Zatanna, Joker, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. I like coming across Rockwell style superhero art like this. It just gives these characters a cool, classy vintage tone. I hope you like this set!

Will Gotham fail without Batman?

9 September 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach on whether Gotham will fail without Batman…

With less than two weeks to go before the much anticpated Batman prequel series Gotham it is clear that many fans are excited to see this show. Gotham will follow James Gordon as a young detective and explore the origins of some of Gotham City’s criminals, as well as Bruce Wayne, who is set to be played by young actor David Mazouz. However, Wayne will only be a child for the duration of the series and likely take a back seat for most of it. The showrunners may try to incorporate the character as much as possible, but without his alter ego Batman do we really care?

I am glad that a character in the DC universe is getting greater development. I for one really liked Gary Oldman’s portrayal of James Gordon in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. »

Gotham TV Show: 10 Characters Who Must Appear

3 September 2014 2:53 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

We’re just three short weeks away from the launch of Fox’s hugely-anticipated Batman spin-off series Gotham, which revolves primarily around the lives of Detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) after Wayne’s parents are murdered. In addition, the show is confirmed to include the likes of Alfred Pennyworth, Oswald Cobblepot, Selina Kyle, Edward Nygma, Ivy Pepper (based on Poison Ivy), Salvatore Maroni and Carmine Falconi, all of whom will inform Bruce’s childhood and lead him to become the Dark Knight in the future.

While this is already a pretty extensive line-up, Batman’s array of colourful characters is so vast and extensive that there’s plenty more who could be included throughout the show’s run. While we already know that The Joker, Harvey Dent, Mr. Freeze, Scarecrow and Hugo Strange are set to appear some time in the future, what about beloved »

Emily S. Whitten’s Grand Sdcc Adventure: Gotham Edition

30 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

(Editor’s Note: As noted in this space last Tuesday, for the next li’l bit we’ll be running Brand-new Emily S. Whitten columns on Tuesday mornings and on Saturday afternoons! This being Saturday afternoon – Eastern USA time – here we go!)

Batman is one of DC Comics’ greatest characters, and part of what makes Batman great is his supporting cast, his rogues gallery, and the whole mood and setting of Gotham, the city that surrounds him and, in part, defines him. I’ve always loved seeing portrayals of Gotham, both in print and on screen, so I’m definitely looking forward to the new TV show Gotham (premiering September 22). Not only is the show supposed to feature the city as a character, but it’s also going to be examining the origins and psychology behind many famous characters from the Bat-verse along the way. The show focuses on Jim »

Marc Alan Fishman: Looking For Comics, Found Nothing But Posters

30 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Ahoy, mates. You’ll forgive me (or not, I don’t know how easily you get ticked off) if my post this week is a bit less meaty than my norm. My excuse: Thursday morning, on the way to the top of my stairs – a box of magic monkey balls safely in tow – my cat decided he’d prefer to be under foot rather than elsewhere. I decided that kittycide didn’t suit me. So, my other other option at the time was to return down the same flight of stairs from whence I came. Unluckily for me, my shoulder (and the hard ground/basement door) stopped an otherwise elegant descent. By the end of the evening, I’d have one less arm at normal usage then I’m normally used to. So, here I sit, in mild agony, pitter-pattering away for your enjoyment. But I (as per my usual) digress. »

Fox Releases Four-Part Online Gotham Special

25 August 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

The jury is still out on whether Fox’s new serial drama, “Gotham,” is going to be a success or not. There’s a ton of lore and it’ll be difficult for all Batman fans to get on board with the revamping of famous characters’ life stories, such as changing Poison Ivy from Pamela Isley to a girl named Ivy Pepper. But whether or not you are excited to see this new look at Batman’s city before Batman, Fox is going to give “Gotham” its best possible shot at success. Fox is airing a four-part special online. The special, released Friday, gives a look at the mythology behind “Gotham” and its villains,  [ Read More ]

DC Comics super-fans: Can't wait another month for the near-51 minute “Gotham” pilot? Perhaps the below embedded featurette will provide enough of a Batman prequel fix to carry you through to the Sept. 22 premiere. On Friday, Fox posted a 20-minute-plus behind-the-scenes “Gotham” video, featuring cast and crew interviews mixed in with episodic scenes and bonus features.

Watch: 20-Minute Gotham Featurette Delves Deep into the Upcoming Origin Story Series

23 August 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards will be held this coming Monday, which means the 2014-15 TV season is fast approaching.  One of the new shows that many are curious about is Fox’s Gotham.  The series is essentially a Batman origin story without Batman, as it follows a young James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as he works to clean up the city of Gotham.  The show will introduce a gallery of classic Batman villains from The Penguin to The Riddler to Poison Ivy, and we even get a very young Catwoman.  I’m curious to see how this show can sustain itself if it’s mostly made up of teases and hints and in-jokes (again, Batman will not materialize), and a new 20-minute Gotham featurette offers a behind-the-scenes look at how showrunner Bruno Heller and the cast see this story unfolding.  The constant “wink-wink” nature could get old fast, so hopefully »

Extended UK Preview Released For ‘Gotham’

21 August 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Alongside the news that, surprisingly, Channel 5 will be showing the upcoming Gotham, we’ve got a brand new preview released to add to the already hyper-marketing for this anticipated series. Straight from Fox, another the Batman and DC villains origin story wasn’t something we knew we needed but early signs weren’t that bad, although I’m personally concerned over the style and vibe, plus the thought that it may become a little too soap-like.

Bruno Heller is the man behind the re-invention, and you’ll know him for The Mentalist and Rome, so there’s a good sign on the latter in terms of visuals and in the first with a touch of cleverness. Gotham follows James Gordon and his rise in the corrupt city that’s on the edge of turning evil forever, plus it will chronicle the birth of many of those well-known DC names and »
