It would seem as if the goodies just keep on coming in regards to the upcoming Batman-inspired spin off series Gotham. It was just two weeks ago when the network released the official synopsis of the show and displayed a new logo for all to see. This all correlated with the launch of the show’s official site. Then, the next week, we were treated to our first look at Detective Harvey Bullock, played in the series by Sons of Anarchy actor Donal Logue. Just this afternoon, we showed you an image of English actor Sean Pertwee as the Wayne Family’s faithful servant Alfred Pennyworth. Now, we have even more to show you. Fox has released an image of Robin Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot.
Now, those of you who know anything about the Batman universe know that this is the alter ego of the man who will one day be known as The Penguin.
Cobblepot is described in his official character description as “having the brains of a chess grandmaster and the morals of a jackal. He is a low-level psychopath for gangster Fish Mooney who carefully hides his sadistic lust for power behind an exquisitely polite demeanor.”
I don’t know about you, but I think it will be quite interesting to get to know some of these characters that we feel like we have known for quite some time, only to see them in a completely different light, and a much younger age.
I can’t lie to you, the more I see from the series, the more anxious I am for the show to get started.
Here is a look at Robin Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot in the upcoming series Gotham.
Gotham stars Southland’s Ben McKenzie in the role of the rookie Detective James Gordon. Joining him in the series is Jada Pinkett Smith, Sara Paxton,Camren Bicondova, Donal Logue, Sean Pertwee, Robin Taylor, Zabryna Guevara, David Mazouz, Cameron Bicondova, and many more.
There is no official premiere date for the series as of yet, but we will keep you updated as soon as more information becomes readily available.
