New Stills From 'Gotham' Reveal Possible Joker

11 July 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

We're not such a long way from Wednesday Night at Comic Con when Fox will show their Gotham pilot to attendees, but we are still pretty far from September 22nd when Gotham will debut on TV paired with Sleepy Hollow.

Bleeding Cool got a chance to pull some screencaps from the pilot and came up with some looks at a young Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) witnessing the Wayne Murders, Commissioner Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue(, a young Edward Nigma, a young Oswalt Cobblepot (holding an umbrella nonetheless) and the Gcpd department.

Most interestingly, though, this stand up comedian who is in Jada Pinkett Smith's club in the pilot, played by Jon Beavers:

In The Killing Joke comic, it's revealed the Joker was once a stand up comedian before he had his run-in with Batman. Have we just seen Gotham's much older and much less ambiguous Joker? »

Is This Our First Look at the Joker in 'Gotham'?

11 July 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Bleeding Cool has an intensive breakdown of the new Fox series Gotham and its Pilot episode. Included are screencaps, and its being speculated that one of these images is actually our first look at Gotham's Joker. The character is described as a "rather nervous stand-up comedian" at a club owned by gangster Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), but it hasn't been confirmed if he will be in any more episodes beyond the pilot.

Take a look at the images, which also feature James Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova), Edward Nygma/The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee), Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Robin Taylor), Gotham P.D. Major Crimes cops Renee Montoya (Victoria Cartagena) and Crispus Allen (Andrew Stewart-Jones), and this unnamed comedian played by Jon Beavers, then read on for more details.

Ahead of the first episode being shown at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Fox has announced a September premiere date for its Batman prequel series Gotham.

Here’s the quote from the press release…

“On Monday, Sept. 22, origin story “Gotham” (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt) kicks off. The series follows one cop, destined for greatness, as he navigates a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the rise of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes.

‘Gotham’ Gets a Premiere Date and New TV Spots

10 July 2014 3:57 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Select people who attend the International Comic-Con in San Diego later this month will get to see the pilot episode for Gotham, well before the rest of the viewing public. Everyone else, however, won’t have to wait that much longer to check out Fox’s much buzzed-about crime/procedural based in the Batman universe – as the show now has a set-in-stone date air date for its premiere, to be accompanied by at least 12 more episodes.

Gotham follows one Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), a cop and newcomer to Gotham City who is “destined for greatness,” but must first navigate an extremely corrupt city – one that will eventually give rise to “the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes,” as the show’s official description puts it. We already knew the show will be airing on Monday evenings beginning in Fall 2014, but Fox ...

The Worlds of 'Gotham' Featurette Delves Into an Underbelly of Crime

10 July 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Gotham encompasses many different worlds as it introduces early versions of iconic DC Comics villains, such as Catwoman, The Riddle, Penguin and Poisen Ivy. Creator Bruno Heller appears in a new featurette, exploring different aspects of Batman's favorite city as he takes viewers on a ride through this vast criminal underbelly. He describes the Fox series as having two distinct tones. On the one hand, it carries all the fun and excitement of the original comic stories, while on the other hand it proves to be a dark, sexy and dangerous thriller. Gotham offers a world of craziness and a world of beauty. Watch as new footage plundges deep into the depths of this gritty landscape, only able to hint at the excitement that lies ahead this fall.

Fox released its full fall schedule today, announcing that Gotham will air Monday nights starting September 22. Here is the official announcement:

Warner Bros. reveals full San Diego Comic-Con schedule

8 July 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the San Diego Comic-Con International fast approaching, Warner Bros. has revealed its full schedule for the con, which includes movies such as The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Mad Max: Fury Road, Jupiter Ascending, Into the Storm and Godzilla, as well as a range of TV shows including The Big Bang Theory, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, Arrow, Gotham, Constantine and The Flash. Oddly, there’s no mention of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so if those rumours about a teaser trailer and a big DC Cinematic Universe announcement are true, WB must be trying its best to keep it a surprise. Check out the full press release here…

Warner Bros. Entertainment will plant its flag at Comic-Con International: San Diego this year with a huge presence, with each individual division touting its upcoming offerings, including Film, Television, Interactive and Home Entertainment, as well as a variety of product from DC Entertainment, »

Danny Cannon on following Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy with Gotham

6 July 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Later this year we’ll be heading back to Gotham City for the first time since Christopher Nolan brought the curtain down on The Dark Knight Trilogy with The Dark Knight Rises as Fox launches its Batman prequel series Gotham. Speaking to IGN, pilot director and executive producer Danny Cannon (Judge Dredd) has spoken about the daunting task of having to follow the acclaimed trilogy.

“It was daunting at first, because you’re following three masterpieces. So I settled with the fact that — what we talked about when we first pitched this was, ’20 years before Batman.’ A world that’s starting to see a corrupt city rotting from the inside. It reminded us of New York in the late ’70s and early ’80s. That was our first meeting, and we kind of spring-boarded off of that. Luckily, that’s uncharted territory. Hopefully in the atmospherics of Gotham we created a romantic, »

9 Comic-Con Surprises Sure to Happen

4 July 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even if you've never set foot in the San Diego Convention Center for Comic-Con, you likely know that there are always a healthy number of surprises that aren't listed on the already-massive schedule. Last year, Warner Bros. dropped perhaps one of the biggest bombs in Con history, by simply unveiling a logo, the merging of Batman and Superman's iconic symbols that let everyone know the forthcoming Man of Steel sequel was, in fact, something much, much greater: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Marvel did the same thing last year as well, with Joss Whedon announcing that the Marvel's The Avengers sequel will be titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, thus revealing the main villain in the same breath.

Way back in 2008, my first year attending Sdcc, I was covering what I thought to be a rather innocuous Disney panel. Keep in mind, this is years before Disney had Marvel and LucasFilm in their stable. »
