Gotham Extended Trailer: First Look at Fox’s New Batman Prequel Series

by Clarissa / May 5, 2014

GothamCommissioner James Gordon is the star of Fox’s new drama Gotham, which has already been picked up to series for at least 13 episodes over at Fox. Gotham takes place when the future Batman (Bruce Wayne) is a 12 year old boy and his parents are gunned down in the pilot episode. Enter Gordon, who is an officer at the time and must try to navigate through the Gotham Police Department and the more corrupt areas of the iconic city.

The series is meant to be a prequel to the Batman saga as fans know it. While we may never see Bruce Wayne don the bat suit unless they jump ahead in the timeline, expect to see many other familiar faces from the comics and previous movies. We’ll be introduced to the origin stories of the Penguin, The Riddler, Catwoman and Poison Ivy as Gordon establishes himself as the top cop in the city.

Gotham will premiere this fall on Fox.
