Has Fox saved the best for last? After a bunch of recent reveals, the studio has released the first official photo of Gotham's headliner. Ben McKenzie (Southland, The O.C.) plays Detective James Gordon, who will go on to become the legendary Commissioner. Like the character posters before it, this one features Gordon in front of Gotham's hazy skyline.

He follows in the footsteps of Detective Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova), Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee) and Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor). Here Gordon is in full detective mode with his suit, tie and steel gaze. He doesn't look like someone you'd want to mess with.

Gotham centers on Gordon's early years within the Gotham City Police Department. It also charts the rise of some of the city's most notorious criminals, as well as its biggest hero. Expect a young and traumatized Bruce Wayne also to make an appearance.

What do you think of McKenzie's look as Gordon?
