After screening the pilot at Comic-Con 2014 last month, Fox's Gotham has been met with critical praise from several of the nation's critics, which is shown in the latest trailer along with new footage. A young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) screams for help alongside his murdered parents, while rookie detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) chases down a suspect on a rooftop in the latest footage from this Batman prequel series, debuting Monday, September 22 at 8 PM ET on Fox.
Before there was Batman, there was Gotham. Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world's greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon's story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world's most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them - the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker? Gotham is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told.
