The first trailer for Fox’s new series Gotham has arrived, All the players are here.They’re just a little younger.
The trailer does a good job of establishing the world while also making it pretty clear for newcomers that this is taking place neck-deep in the Batman universe. We get a feel for the grittiness and tone, and it seems to be a good fit for the subject matter. The network has ordered "at least" 13 episodes.
We also get a look at young Bruce Wayne, along with the murder of his parents. We apparently won't have to wait long for that one, and from how it looks, that mugging is the catalyst for much of the series (which kinda makes sense). The trailer shows what appears to be Gordon and Wayne’s first meeting, as the young detective vows to bring the killer to justice.
A shortened version of the trailer debuted Monday night on the season premiere of 24 live another day, but it didn't take long for Fox to unveil more. Check out the extended 2+ minute cut below and let us know what you think:
The series stars Ben McKenzie, Robin Lord Taylor, Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett Smith and Sean Pertwee.
