New TV spot arrives online for Gotham: watch now

While plot details emerge regarding the series’ Joker…

A new TV spot has emerged online for Gotham, the TV prequel series following the exploits of a young Jim Gordon as he makes his way in America’s crime capital.

The new spot focuses on Ben McKenzie’s Gordon, a former war hero who finds himself in at the deep end after accepting the position of Detective in the Gotham City PD.

Indeed, this latest spot shows several of Gordon’s future nemeses skulking in the shadows as he makes his way towards a crime scene. “Someone needs to take a stand,” says his voiceover, “and that is where we come in.”

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

You might have noticed that the Joker wasn’t present in that little rogues gallery, and according to Bleeding Cool, the writers are going to enjoy themselves teasing the audience with his origin story…

According to the report, each episode in the first season will introduce a character who could well be a future Joker. Think clowns, card-sharps, or simply somebody with a prominent grin…

Gotham will make its US debut on 22 September 2014, with a UK air date to be confirmed.

What do you think of the new trailer? Tell us, below!

      Part of what makes the jokes so great is that his origin story usually remains a mystery. They don't need to touch his origin just use the character.

      I just hope they don't rush through to many characters to fast! Has the potential to be really good, very excited

      The problem with Batman so far is that all the films are well done with the origins (arguably Burton, 100% Nolan) and when the Joker is in it. After that though the films seem to disappear up their own ar@e and have no clue about what to do next and are all terrible despite the wealth of material to use. Seems like Gotham may just be more than OK with the Batman origin story and teasing The Joker throughout, but lets hope they can use the material of 75 years plus of Batman in a appropriate way. Liking the aesthetics as well, seems to have the Gothic 30's feel Batman Begins got just right. Was impressed with Ben Mckenzie in Southland too.
