Only time will tell which shows will emerge as the best of the 2014-2015 freshman crop, but certainly one of the most highly anticipated is Fox’s Gotham. The DC prequel series promises to reveal the origins of the Gotham City personalities we know and love.
That includes protagonist Jim Gordon, of course, and Bruce Wayne the future Batman — but also the troubled souls who will become Catwoman, the Penguin, the Riddler, Poison Ivy, and more. Get a better look at these not-quite-superheroes and not-quite-supervillains with a new batch of Gotham character posters after the jump.

Fox’s Gotham is ostensibly the origin story of Jim Gordon and Batman, but it seems to be as much about the villains as it is the heroes. Catwoman, the Penguin, the Riddler, and Poison Ivy are just a few of the classic characters we can expect to meet, along with new inventions like Jada Pinkett Smith‘s Fish Mooney.

We’ve seen plenty of Gotham footage at this point, and even heard quite a few positive reactions to the pilot. But why not see one more trailer? This one is good, because it spotlights the villains, including The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), and Catwoman (Camren Bicondova).
Bruno Heller‘s show (with a pilot directed by Danny Cannon) also features Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, and David Mazouz as a very young Bruce Wayne. But for now, the focus is mostly on the villains, with only a little time left over for the good guys. Watch below. Read More »
