Ever since Gotham ended its third season in June, we’ve been suffering from a lack of proto-Batman and a younger gallery of rogues. But now, thanks to new footage at San Diego Comic-Con, we have something to look forward to.
The first four-plus minutes of the video below recap some of the highlights of the last season (including my favorite: a confrontation between Bruce and Jerome in a hall of mirrors). But from 4:26 on, we get the good stuff—fresh new footage.
Brief flashes show a much more combative and agile version of young Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Penguin, a frozen Riddler, Victor Zsasz, Barbara and Tabitha, another Jerome acolyte, and what looks to be the villain of Season 4, the Scarecrow.
In the voice over, Alfred says, “There is a time for masks, and there is a time for Bruce Wayne.” In this season, I think we’re going to be needing Batman more.
Gotham returns to television September 28 on Fox.
