Another Nod To 'The Joker' In Extended TV Spot For BATMAN Prequel, GOTHAM

Fox have released an extended teaser for Gotham, and we get a glimpse at what could possibly be yet another nod to The Joker in the series which will apparently introduce a younger version of the Clown Prince of Crime at some point during the first season. Check it out!

Before there was Batman, there was GOTHAM. 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.

Gee Whiz, that Joker nod really looks familiar...

JorL5150 - 8/5/2014, 8:15 AM
This show just proves that WB only has confidence in batman without batman in it

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, god that's terrible.
SKOne - 8/5/2014, 8:18 AM
Honestly, all I care is that this show doesn't make the one unforgivable mistake that Smallville did and not show the hero in costume even if the series finale has to jump forward huge amounts of time.

"is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes"

Batman the animated series

Batman Begins

there you go...this is an unnecessary show...ivy pepper...

This will be the first time that we'll get to follow all those Batman villains at the same time in live-action since the Adam West series, but there won't be any Batman. I'm not saying this won't be good, I'm just saying the better it is, the more and more I'll be like "Man I wish there was Batman". It would be like if Marvel announced a Skinny Steve TV show about Rogers' live before he got the serum.

KILL IT WITH FIRE!

Nah, Skinny Steve was way more interesting than 10-year-old Bruce Wayne. Thrill as Detective Gordon matches wits with the Riddler while young Master Bruce plays Pokemon!

It's funny that since the pilot leaked, fan enthusiasm went into the toilet. It's like the complete opposite of The Flash pilot leak.

What's the name of that song tho?
CherryBomb - 8/5/2014, 8:25 AM
The Good, The Evil.... Then there's Ivy Pepper...the just plain Stupid.
Gusto - 8/5/2014, 8:26 AM
That Flo sure was a joker.

Pasto - 8/5/2014, 8:27 AM
Ivy Pepper is the greatest thing ever.
Nomis - 8/5/2014, 8:28 AM
I love the feel of the trailer. Gothic. Diggin it!

Thebest2 - 8/5/2014, 8:29 AM
That was better than the whole first season of agents of shield!
WinterSoldier33 - 8/5/2014, 8:30 AM
i hope its good
Gandhi - 8/5/2014, 8:30 AM
Yeah baby

Nomis - 8/5/2014, 8:31 AM
@ Gandi - LLLLOOOOOOOLLLLLLL!!!!

He looks more like him than Freddie Prinze Jr.
JorL5150 - 8/5/2014, 8:32 AM
Kiss my grits gusto-

There's only one flo for me !
IronMountaineer - 8/5/2014, 8:34 AM
I mean I'll watch this, cause I think Jim Gordon's awesome, but the age discrepancies do make you wonder...oh well, I'll still give it a shot.
Steelers4190 - 8/5/2014, 8:35 AM
Such a dumb premise lol
RetroFit - 8/5/2014, 8:37 AM
Not interested. Sometimes the coolest thing about certain characters is the mystery behind them. Darth Vader and Boba Fett have already been ruined. Now we get to see the entire Batman gallery get ruined. Ruined!
yonny616 - 8/5/2014, 8:38 AM
This show is going to be so awesome. Haters gonna hate.
JorL5150 - 8/5/2014, 8:43 AM
Where's mcgee today?
I want to test the rumor that my foot has a surprise cameo in his ass
Nomis - 8/5/2014, 8:43 AM
I love prequels.
IronMountaineer - 8/5/2014, 8:44 AM
@Yossarian I know right!? Me too!
joppida - 8/5/2014, 8:47 AM
JOKER CAN'T EXIST WITHOUT BATMAN
fettastic - 8/5/2014, 8:51 AM
In an interview I read earlier, they essentially admitted all the Joker hints from season 1 are just to [frick] with people. At least that's how I read it.
ManDeth - 8/5/2014, 8:52 AM
In the near future, WB will package Birds Of Prey, with the few pre quick cancellation episodes of Gotham and Constantine and together they'll form some DC Bluray collectors pack.
Gusto - 8/5/2014, 8:55 AM
Ahhh...that Progressive Flo is a skank!
SpiderBat209 - 8/5/2014, 8:55 AM
I want this song! Who's it by? :D
Gusto - 8/5/2014, 8:56 AM
Me @Marky
SpiderBat209 - 8/5/2014, 8:57 AM
I want to plow Progressive Flo. I think she's worth the VD. jk ;D
Arrowhead77 - 8/5/2014, 9:00 AM
