The DC wonder that is the Batman franchise has been winning over fans for decades. It’s safe to say that from the beginning with Lewis G Wilson and Robert Lowery all the way to Christian Bale playing Bruce Wayne himself, directors and actors have wowed us with what they can do to this comic book hero. Now we have something new to sink our teeth into. New show, Gotham is due to hit our screens pretty soon and from a channel like FOX backing it, it should live up to expectations.
Instead of focusing entirely on Batman, this series follows a young Jim Gordon and his policing career through the corrupt offices of Gotham. As Gordon vows to Wayne he will find the men responsible for his parents’ death, it is unclear where the story may lead at this stage but that makes it all the more intriguing. It’s safe to say that even though this is a new stance, it is apparent from this glimpse we will be witnessing the birth of Batman, Catwoman, The Riddler and Poison Ivy alike. Delving into the past of these action characters hasn’t really been done before and certainly looks like we are in for a treat.
In the first trailer we see young actor David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, and the OC star Ben McKenzie as Officer Gordon. It seems this TV spot has a lot to offer in terms of story development and should certainly be enjoyable to watch. After all, I am sure we have all been feeling withdrawal since the final episode from Nolan has been and gone? Let us know what you think of the first trailer here!
