‘Gotham’ UK Trailer: From the Darkness, Heroes Will Be Born

11 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

While Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice is promising fans an older, more world-weary Bruce Wayne, Fox’s upcoming prequel show Gotham is going in the opposite direction with a pilot episode that kicks off with a pre-teen Bruce losing his parents to a mugger in an alley. Ostensibly the show is not really about Bruce Wayne, however; instead, it follows the early career of newly-minted Detective Jim Gordon as he struggles to maintain his moral code in a city that’s in love with its own corruption.

That’s not to say, of course, that Gotham isn’t also going to feature a whole host of mini-heroes and mini-villains – they’re just too cute to resist. While Jim tackles mob bosses like Fish Mooney and Salvatore Maroni, he’ll also cross paths with the likes of a young Poison Ivy, ...

Review: Batman: Assault on Arkham is Bad.....Bad Ass!

11 August 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | Legions of Gotham | See recent Legions of Gotham news »

You can pre-order this film on Amazon.com

Yeah, I said it. I'm obviously a lifelong Batman fan, especially in the realm of animation.  I'm very critical of the Dc Universe films..they're very hit and miss for  me.   This film is without a doubt my favorite of the Dc Universe films to date.  Assault on Arkham has it all..violence, sex, humor and dark twisted enjoyment for all.  This one is what 'The Losers' should have been.  Its like the Expendables with Dc Comics villains.  Top all that off with tons of villain cameos and Kevin Conroy reprising Batman, the role that he owns, and you have an absolute winner.

This review will contain some, but not all, Spoilers!  I'm not going to give you the plot points, but don't read if you don't want a few things revealed, I don't wanna have to call you a waaaaahmbulance.

A Dark Stain: The Infamous ‘Batman & Robin’

10 August 2014 4:57 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It suffered a 63% box office drop in its second week of cinematic release. It was nominated for eleven Golden Raspberry Awards, winning one. It has been singled out as a source of massive regret for much of its cast. It effectively ended two A-list film careers, signaled the decline of Hollywood’s most celebrated guilty pleasure strongman, and doomed its helmsman to a pantheon of lingering disgrace. It torpedoed a multimillion dollar franchise, wiped out two green-lit blockbusters and put one of pop culture’s biggest names into the dark for eight years. It is often cited as one of the worst movies ever made, and was crowned number one by Empire. Years later, its director would be compelled to actually apologize for it. When you collect your wits at last and begin to look at the mess with something approaching rationalization, you will be hard pressed to find a »

Broken, and Done: ‘Batman Knightfall’ shatters an icon

9 August 2014 7:33 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Batman: Knightfall

Written by Various

Art by Various

Published by DC Comics

It has long been argued, and rightfully so, that the Batman has the strongest rogues gallery in the biz. From the psychotic mirror image of the Joker, to his fractured former ally Two-Face. From the intellectual prowess of the Riddler to the shocking brutality of Killer Croc. From the demure sass of Catwoman to the psychosexual lust of Poison Ivy. And on and on the list goes.

Still, even with such an impressive and engaging list of villains, not a single one of them has ever beaten the Batman as handily and ruthlessly as Bane; never before, and never since.

It all begins, unsurprisingly, with a plot to bring down the Batman. What is surprising though is the scope and strategy that Bane puts into taking down the Bat. Bane doesn’t engage the Dark Knight directly when he arrives in Gotham, »

Holy Criminal Reincarnation! : Top 10 Underused TV Batman Villains Repackaged in the Movies

9 August 2014 7:16 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We are incorporating two elements here in the Caped Crusader’s universe: applying the Batman 60′s ABC-tv show (1966-1968/3 seasons) with the Batman film franchise (1989 and beyond). The link that we are looking for to connect Batman’s cheesy television past and its current and future filming state of mind is the conception of repackaging the Dynamic Duo’s cartoonish villains from the small screen and giving them new life on the big screen in the millennium. Let’s examine this line of reasoning, shall we?

As any Batman enthusiast (or casual observer) knows about the campy TV series back in the late 60′s is that the main off-kilter charm was the colorful and wacky regular guest star villains that populated the program many times through the three-year broadcast on the network. Household hooligans such as Catwoman, the Joker, the Penguin and the Riddler would return and become the routine »

‘Gotham’ TV Spots: A Dark City and the Criminals Who Live There

8 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Fans are eagerly anticipating the fall premiere of Fox’s Gotham – a series promising to explore a pre-Batman Gotham through the eyes of a young, inexperienced Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie). Yet it’s an anticipation mixed with apprehension as many are unsure of how well a series pitting Gordon against Gotham’s most infamous criminals will pan out.

The comparisons to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy are inevitable, and already the series might be trying too hard to fill the void left by excluding Gotham’s brooding protector. The marketing has made no secret of the series’ plan to introduce a bevy of Batman’s infamous rogues, with Catwoman, The Penquin, The Riddler, Poison Ivy, and most recently the mobster Sal Maroni set to appear. Seemingly, Gotham is approaching the popular mythos from the angle that the city’s most ...

Meet Fish Mooney in New 'Gotham' Trailer

7 August 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Almost every single character in Fox's upcoming Batman prequel series Gotham has origins in the DC Comics, such as James Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Robin Taylor), Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova), Edward Nygma/The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith) and Ivy Pepper/Poison Ivy (Clare Foley ll).

Watch as Gordon is dragged to a meeting with the notorious gangster, where she showcases her violent temper along with a hint at how Oswald Cobblepot's Penguin nickname got started. The pilot episode debuts Monday, September 22 at 8 Pm Et on Fox.

New Gotham TV Spot Has James Gordon as the Last Honest Cop

7 August 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fox has released a new Gotham TV spot online.  The upcoming Fox series will function as a prequel featuring a young James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) trying to clean up the city that Batman will ultimately protect.  The series will also provide young versions of The Penguin, The Riddler, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, and more.  I'm curious to see how the series handles being a police procedural (the bread-and-butter of any network television lineup) while also cashing in on its comic book origins.  This TV spot leans towards a regular police procedural since a show about an honest cop in a corrupt city could be for any TV series; being based on Batman has nothing to do with it. Hit the jump to check out the Gotham TV spot, and click here for our coverage of the Comic-Con panel. The show also stars David MazouzDonal Logue, Barbara Kean, Jada Pinkett Smith, »

‘Gotham’ To Take Up Residence On UK’s Channel Five

6 August 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Gotham is the shinning jewel in Fox’s new fall television series. The show takes place in the city that Batman will one day seek to defend. The show will not feature the DC hero though with the action taking place whilst Bruce Wayne is just a boy. Set in the aftermath of his parent’s brutal murder the story will follow a younger incarnation of future commissioner Jim Gordon, played by Southland and The Oc star Ben McKenzie.

It isn’t just Gordon and Wayne that are having the time turned back on them though as famous villains Penguin, The Riddler, Poison Ivy and Catwoman will also feature in much younger guises. Given it’s comic book origins the show has obviously garnered a lot of interest but up until now we Brits were unsure of how we would see the show.

Today see’s that question answered as terrestrial UK channel, »

Gotham coming to Channel 5 in the UK

6 August 2014 12:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Channel 5 has acquired the rights to Fox's high-profile comic-book series, Gotham...

Here's a coup for Channel 5, albeit a pricy one. The UK channel has secured the broadcast rights to Fox's forthcoming Batman prequel series, Gotham.

The rumoured-to-be expensive deal may explain Channel 5's choice to drop Once Upon A Time and Justified, neither of which proved to be the ratings draw the channel was looking for, and since-reversed decision to drop The Walking Dead. With a costly new Us drama on its books, it could be that the budget didn't stretch to sticking with the older shows.

Starring Ben McKenzie, Sean Pertwee, Jada Pinkett-Smith and a clutch of promising new(ish)comers, Gotham tells the story of Det. Jim Gordon's early career, when the city's rogues gallery was packed with classic Batman villains - The Riddler, The Penguin, Catwoman, Poison Ivy - in their embryonic forms.

'Gotham' Adds 'Dexter' Star David Zayas as Mobster Sal Maroni

1 August 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Dexter star David Zayas has signed on for a recurring role in the upcoming Fox series Gotham as ruthless mob boss Sal Maroni. It hasn't been confirmed how many episodes the actor will be appearing in.

In the DC Comics, Salvatore Maroni was one of Batman's first enemies, who took control of the city's unions and drug trade. He is best known as the man responsible for the disfigurement of District Attorney Harvey Dent, and his transformation into the villainous Two-Face. However, the show is set several years before these story lines unfold.

In Gotham, Maroni is second in the criminal underworld behind Carmine Falcone (John Doman), with Season 1 putting Maroni on a "crash course" with his bitter rival Falcone as they battle for control of Gotham's underworld. Sal Maroni was most notably played by Eric Roberts in director Christopher Nolan's 2008 feature The Dark Knight.

Gotham Executive Producer Confirms Mr. Freeze Origin

31 July 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Gotham executive producer Danny Cannon, who also directed the pilot episode, said back in June that he would like to bring beloved Batman villain Mr. Freeze into the proceedings. Now, Cannon has confirmed that Freeze will appear on the show, and gave a bit of insight into how he’ll be brought into the fold.

At San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, Cannon spoke with Digital Spy and said that Freeze will get an origin story on the show, but it will be re-imagined a bit in order to fit Gotham‘s more realistic, grounded approach. Cannon hopes to explain the science behind someone like Mr. Freeze, and says his past work on CSI gave him some ideas on how to do that properly:

"Gotham" Chills With 'Mr. Freeze'

30 July 2014 3:04 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to "Gotham" executive producer Danny Cannon, the 'Batman' super-villain 'Mr. Freeze' will appear on the new series.

"...about the villains in this show...they need to be very credible and relatable and the science behind them needs to be real," said Cannon, "so I had a couple of stories that I'd held onto - real, true stories - and one of them just related to 'Mr Freeze'. I know a real way to create an origin story."

Other 'Batman' comic book villains including 'Edward "The Riddler" Nygma', 'Selina "Catwoman" Kyle', 'Harvey "Two-Face" Dent', 'Oswald "The Penguin" Cobblepot' and 'Ivy "Poison Ivy' Pepper.

Mr. Freeze has been a favorite comic book character to adapt for live-action, having been played by George Sanders, Otto Preminger and Eli Wallach in the 1966 "Batman" TV series, and by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the feature "Batmanb & Robin" (1997).
