Gotham puts the spotlight on a young Detective Jim Gordon following the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents, and focuses on both of them and younger versions of some of Batman’s most iconic villains.

This new TV spot for the series (which premieres this Autumn on Fox and possibly Sky One or Sky Atlantic here in the UK) puts the spotlight on two characters who will become a real problem for the Caped Crusader down the line; Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot.

As you may already know, they later become Catwoman and The Penguin. The preview also features Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney, an imposing, hotheaded and notoriously sadistic crime boss and nightclub who was created specifically for this series. The buzz for Gotham has been very positive so far.

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.
