One right after the other, the goodies just keep on coming in regards to the upcoming Batman-inspired television show Gotham. On Tuesday, we showed you the first official photos of both Sean Pertwee as the Wayne family’s faithful servant Alfred Pennyworth and Robin Lord as villain Oswald Cobblepot. Now, one of the most integral pieces of the puzzle is coming into full view. Fox has released the first official image of Ben McKenzie as the young detective James Gordon.
As most of you already know, Gotham is a bit of an origin story for Gordon. The show will delve into life in Gotham City long before Batman ever arrived on the scene. In fact, when the series starts up, we will be looking at a 10 year old Bruce Wayne who very recently lost both of his parents. It is said that one of the cases being taken on by the young detective Gordon will be the murder of Wayne’s parents.
Personally, I think it is going to be rather interesting to see some of our favorite Batman villains come into play and see what they were like before the Bat came onto the scene and made their lives much more difficult. Everyone has a story behind them, now we will be able to delve deeper into some of those stories and get to know these characters on a different level.
Here is a look at the first official image of Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon in Gotham.
In addition to McKenzie, Gotham also stars 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.
