The first trailer has arrived online for Gotham, Fox’s Batman prequel following the exploits of the young Jim Gordon, played here by Ben McKenzie.
Picking up with Gordon during his days as a rookie detective, the story will also dip into the life of the young Bruce Wayne, as his parents are brutally shot dead in the street in front of him.
There are also glimpses of young incarnations of Penguin, Catwoman, Riddler and Poison Ivy, as Gordon begins to get to grips with just how corrupt his new beat really is.
Take a look at the new trailer, below…
A “cop show” take on the Batman universe is certainly an interesting idea, and McKenzie makes for a gripping screen presence as the gruff young detective thrown in at the deep end.
Co-starring Jada Pinkett Smith and Sean Pertwee, Gotham will run in the US this autumn, with a UK air date yet to be confirmed.
