|Details emerge on Fox’s Batman related “Gotham” TV Show|
MovieWeb.com has got some new details on Fox’s upcoming Batman related “Gotham” TV show. As we previously reported, Gotham is set to be a prequel, of sorts, to the adult Batman we know. The show will focus on a younger James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and his partner Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue). The pair are investigating the murder of 12 year Bruce Wayne’s parents.
In regards to Batman and his legendary rogues gallery, villains that are set to appear prominently include Selina Kyle – who we know today as Catwoman – who is close to Bruce Wayne in age in the show, and is already beginning her life of burglary. Oswald Cobblepot – who becomes The Penguin – is a mob boss, while Edward Nigma – The Riddler – is a coroner at the Gotham City Police Department. There’s also a tease for Poison Ivy. The main villain of the show will be Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney, a club owner and gangster.
This is shaping up to be an exciting TV show as we’ll be able to see the classic villains we know and love (to hate) and how they came to be the monsters we know them as. Gotham is set to debut in the Fall on Fox.
