FOX's Gotham

Edit by McAster.

We have an official logo and synopsis.



Quote:
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. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), GOTHAM follows one cop's rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.

Growing up in Gotham City's surrounding suburbs, JAMES GORDON (Ben McKenzie, “Southland,” “The O.C.”) romanticized the city as a glamorous and exciting metropolis where his late father once served as a successful district attorney. Now, two weeks into his new job as a Gotham City detective and engaged to his beloved fiancée, BARBARA KEAN (Erin Richards, “Open Grave,” “Breaking In”), Gordon is living his dream – even as he hopes to restore the city back to the pure version he remembers it was as a kid.

Brave, honest and ready to prove himself, the newly-minted detective is partnered with the brash, but shrewd police legend HARVEY BULLOCK (Donal Logue, “Sons of Anarchy,” “Terriers,” “Vikings,” “Copper”), as the two stumble upon the city's highest-profile case ever: the murder of local billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne. At the scene of the crime, Gordon meets the sole survivor: the Waynes' hauntingly intense 12-year-old son, BRUCE (David Mazouz, “Touch”), toward whom the young detective feels an inexplicable kinship. Moved by the boy's profound loss, Gordon vows to catch the killer.

As he navigates the often-underhanded politics of Gotham's criminal justice system, Gordon will confront imposing gang boss FISH MOONEY (Jada Pinkett Smith, “The Matrix” films, “HawthoRNe,” “Collateral”), and many of the characters who will become some of fiction's most renowned, enduring villains, including a teenaged SELINA KYLE/the future CATWOMAN (acting newcomer Camren Bicondova) and OSWALD COBBLEPOT/THE PENGUIN (Robin Lord Taylor, “The Walking Dead,” “Another Earth”).

Although the crime drama will follow Gordon's turbulent and singular rise through the Gotham City police department, led by Police Captain SARAH ESSEN (Zabryna Guevara, “Burn Notice”), it also will focus on the unlikely friendship Gordon forms with the young heir to the Wayne fortune, who is being raised by his unflappable butler, ALFRED (Sean Pertwee, “Camelot,” “Elementary”). It is a friendship that will last them all of their lives, playing a crucial role in helping the young boy eventually become the crusader he's destined to be.

Man, WB and DC really are scrambling to put their asses into high-gear, aren't they...?

I am actually really hopeful for this. A cop show with the color of DC sounds fun.

Actually, I'm with Chris Hemsworth when he says there's no competition. Marvel wins, I'm convinced completely that they have the upper hand.

Well I do think that DC/WB is going about this the wrong way:

Don't try to MEET everyone's expectations. EXCEED them.

Dammit guys, do something that Marvel Studios hasn't done yet! Not try to match them for everything they do!

DC was winning TV, but with Young Justice and Green Lantern gone not so much anymore.

Maybe so, but that doesn't mean Marvel wasn't still kicking DC's ass when it came to the movies. I mean sure, The Dark Knight managed to beat Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk in terms of hype and success but the Marvel movies grew more and more and we have The Avengers and there's hype for their upcoming films.

Yeah, DC has kind of slacked off when it comes to their live action (non Batman) franchises. Now Marvels taken the lead, and it'd take a huge shift, either due to Marvel screwing up big time, or DC pulling off an unprecedented upset, to put DC back in the running.

There's still also that Flash TV series that's being developed. Don't know what to make of this Gordon police show. Guess we're gonna have to wait and see what happens.

You're kidding, right?!
I might be one of few, but I hated GL:TAS. I hate most CGI animated series in general, but GL and Beware the Batman were/are horrible.

Moving On.

I really don't get this move from Warner Bros. This feels like the styling from movies in the "old days" when competing project (movies and TV) would come out at the same time. One always does better than the other. And judging by the SHIELD pilot tonight, DC and WB better bring something AMAZING to the table with Gordon next year.

I loved Gotham Central. It was comic that focused on the GCPD and how they live in a city of monsters and lunatics. If this show is like that and written competently, I'll love it.

If it's Generic Police Drama with vague DC naming references, pass.
