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.

^I feel the same way
ruadh - 5/5/2014, 5:21 PM
What I was expecting. Now to see if the show delivers.
ComicsBornAndBred - 5/5/2014, 5:21 PM
Looks okay. Poison ivy what??? Not much given away. The tone looks okay. The killing of the Wayne's looked visceral which was nice. Idk. Need to see more
alijoe - 5/5/2014, 5:21 PM
Looks dark and awesome
MrBlackjack - 5/5/2014, 5:21 PM
The contrast hasn't returned to normal on my laptop since I viewed that video. [frick].
CASH - 5/5/2014, 5:21 PM
Looks Promising. I'll catch it!
ComicsBornAndBred - 5/5/2014, 5:21 PM
@Lozzy haha agree
BIGBMH - 5/5/2014, 5:22 PM
Eh, it looks like they're trying too hard to fit lots of Batman characters in. Do we really need to see kid versions of Catwoman and Poison Ivy?
MrCBM56 - 5/5/2014, 5:22 PM
Actually looks good!

And this might sound weird but his scream sounded perfect. Not at all forced or weak.
grif - 5/5/2014, 5:22 PM
kid cat burglar catwoman. lmfao

looks worse than i could have imagined.
MrCamw1 - 5/5/2014, 5:22 PM
I liked everything except for Bruce Wayne screaming like a little girl.
Comedian03 - 5/5/2014, 5:22 PM
Hmmm, I gotta say, that didn't look too bad.

I've been kind of dissing on this show since it was announced, but that really looks better than what I imagined. Nicely done Fox.
ComicsBornAndBred - 5/5/2014, 5:22 PM
Bruce screaming at his parents death---Nice. The tone seems dark which is great.
SuperDude001 - 5/5/2014, 5:22 PM
Yeahhhhh no. Gordon looks completely wrong, he's supposed to be comforting and an amatuer at this point, not wise and that super-dedicated hero crap cop like he does in this trailer. And I really dislike the dependence on comic villains, it would've been better to just develop Gordon and Bullock with a normal cop-show premise with some eccentrics, leaving the comics stuff till a few seasons in. Looks like a high-class CW show, and that's not even good.
ComicsBornAndBred - 5/5/2014, 5:23 PM
@MrCamw he's a ten year old kid---no puberty yet of course his scream sounds girlish. It sounds genuine and real
Comedian03 - 5/5/2014, 5:23 PM
The way they covered up Joe Chill's face, makes me think they've got bigger plans for his character down the road, and haven't figured out who they want to cast yet.

Me thinks we might see a big change from the source material.
YoungThanos - 5/5/2014, 5:23 PM
Hmm...I'll give it a chance.
ComicsBornAndBred - 5/5/2014, 5:24 PM
@SuperDude001 welcome hater number one
IronConstantine68 - 5/5/2014, 5:24 PM
HOW DID HE BEAT ME TO IT! why...
Mercwitham0uth - 5/5/2014, 5:24 PM
Looks bad.
ComicsBornAndBred - 5/5/2014, 5:24 PM
The killin of the Wayne's seems like a conspiracy. Joe chill face was hidden. It's prob a pitiful conspiracy like on Earth One Batman comic
Alexjames13 - 5/5/2014, 5:25 PM
looks good! A fresh and unique take on the batman saga. im all in!
WingDingaLing - 5/5/2014, 5:25 PM
Feels like Arrow... It looks okay overall.
IronConstantine68 - 5/5/2014, 5:25 PM
I was going to post this... but he beat me.

ComicsBornAndBred @ I'm not trying to hate it for the sake of it, I've been very optimistic about this show until now. I'm still gonna give it a chance, but I just mean this trailer isn't doing it any help.
SaxoWolf - 5/5/2014, 5:26 PM
let's wait and see
mbembet - 5/5/2014, 5:26 PM
so this is prequel to ben affleck
Alexjames13 - 5/5/2014, 5:27 PM
the question is who are they going to cast as the joker??!!
symbiotics - 5/5/2014, 5:27 PM
Pheezmatic - 5/5/2014, 5:28 PM
I'd love to see Fox stick to what they're good at for once....



... making me f*cking sandwiches.

randallstevens - 5/5/2014, 5:30 PM
Looks less cheesy than Arrow and Agents of SHIELD.
Arrow96 - 5/5/2014, 5:30 PM
Givin' it a shot!
SuperDude001 - 5/5/2014, 5:30 PM
Alexjames13 @ Maybe they're going the acid route for Joker, and just have Joe Chill as Joker pre-accident, maybe that's why they're hiding his face so they can cast someone impressive later :/
MikeRaider - 5/5/2014, 5:30 PM
Hey, I'll take anything to get the DC Cinematic Universe going! :P
patrat18 - 5/5/2014, 5:30 PM
