Fox has released a new promo for this fall's Gotham. Instead of highlighting the lead character (Detective James Gordon), it focuses on his biggest adversaries. These are the men and women who will go on to become the most dangerous criminals in Gotham's history. They will be a problem for not only Gordon but also Batman down the line.
The video features Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), a nightclub owner and crime boss who'll serve as the first season's Big Bad. There's also a teen Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova), who goes on to become a cat burglar and love interest of Bruce Wayne/Batman. And we round things out with a young Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor), who'll later be known as the Penguin.
Gotham is “an origin story of the great DC Comics super-villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told.” The pilot was recently screened for the press, and the reaction's been mostly positive. DC could have another small-screen hit on its hands similar to Arrow and, hopefully, The Flash.
Gotham will air Mondays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
