'Fish Mooney' is "an imposing, hotheaded and notoriously sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner with street smarts and almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book who is not one to be crossed." - Deadline
As Gordon 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”).

Cast: James Gordon played by Ben McKenzie (“Southland”), Barbara Kean played by Erin Richards (“Open Grave”), Harvey Bullock played by Donal Logue (“Sons of Anarchy”), Bruce Wayne played by David Mazouz (“Touch”), Fish Mooney played by Will Smith's wife Jada Pinkett Smith (“Collateral”), Selina Kyle/Catwoman played by Camren Bicondova, Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin played by Robin Lord Taylor (“Another Earth”), Police Captain Sarah Essen played by Zabryna Guevara (“Burn Notice”), Alfred Pennyworth played by Sean Pertwee (“Camelot”).

GOTHAM is based upon characters published by DC Comics and is produced by Warner Bros. Television. Executive producer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist”) wrote the pilot, which will be directed and executive-produced by Emmy Award nominee Danny Cannon (the “CSI” series, “Nikita”).

I'm not impressed but if that interview she gave is correct she will end up dying anyway.
AxeEffect - 3/26/2014, 10:35 AM
meh
Doopie - 3/26/2014, 10:35 AM
most likely she dies after the first (and maybe only?) series
kevberg - 3/26/2014, 10:37 AM
Man.. doesnt anyone not like the fact they gave her character --a WOMAN-- the nickname--FISH?

yeeessh!
Arrowhead77 - 3/26/2014, 10:38 AM
Ooohh...Hot. That Will Smith is one lucky fella. Also, I am kinda looking forward to this. Dont know why. Maybe it fills the void that is know as the black hole of DC movie news.
TheManFromMars - 3/26/2014, 10:38 AM
Who playing who?
TheManFromMars - 3/26/2014, 10:39 AM
Oh, that's Will Smith's wife? Have never seen her before... I think.
MrSotoMan - 3/26/2014, 10:41 AM
Wheres the dumbest defenders of this show?

What the hell (Christian Bale Batman voice)
TheManFromMars - 3/26/2014, 10:44 AM
@kevberg

Maybe Fish is, in fact, her real name.

jk
Chloefornication - 3/26/2014, 10:45 AM
@Arrowhead77 You think that is hot? Come on, man.
CommanderShepard - 3/26/2014, 10:51 AM
I think Arrowhead is being sarcastic, bro. We all know that looks terrible. Of all the cast looks alright so far, except for this and Catgirl.
StarYeezus - 3/26/2014, 10:57 AM
She got them Kool-Aid highlights and shit. That's how you know she a boss.
ForMeToPoopOn - 3/26/2014, 10:59 AM
So, with that hair color thing going on, can I assume that this is not taking place in the past?

It's looking more and more Smallville-ish every day. Not setting this in the 80's (when Batfleck was a kid) and tying it to the DCU is a big miss. (sigh)
BlackIceJoe - 3/26/2014, 11:02 AM
I can see why she gets killed off. Because with a name like fish she clearly will get caught on a hook and then like a fish taken out of water she will die. Plus what's with the red on her hair for. I thought she was to be a crime boss not a kid trying to play a rebel.

I want to know when will Carmine Falcone be shown. He would be the most interesting to know his backstory. He wasn't always known as the Roman. He had to do some crazy things to get into the power he is at now in Gotham.

Plus I want to see the early years of Rupert Thorne. These are the two characters I am most interested in finding out more about.

The fact that I wasn't named "Fish Mooney" upon birth means my life was always destined to suck.

I feel like I missed out.
TheManFromMars - 3/26/2014, 11:04 AM
@BlackIceJoe

She got red on her hair because she's a... RED HERRING! *Ba-Dum-Tss*
nailbiter111 - 3/26/2014, 11:04 AM
ForMeToPoopOn - not sure why you say that. people did dye the tips of their hair for the past several decades.
Illcommunicatione - 3/26/2014, 11:05 AM
From the look of that first pic, it looks as though her special power may be constipation...
MercwithMouth - 3/26/2014, 11:05 AM
@cipher

You can always change it brother... Don't let anyone stop you from being who you want to be!


On topic, this is stupid. Jada is a horrible actress, and has proved it time and time again. She can destroy this entire show by herself.
CptAmurrikah - 3/26/2014, 11:06 AM
dumb.
HeadPool420 - 3/26/2014, 11:06 AM
Idk maybe it's me but she looks like she had some work done to her face.
smell - 3/26/2014, 11:06 AM
Looks like missy Elliot, just skinnier. Maybe she'll get her freak on
jrp6048 - 3/26/2014, 11:07 AM
Meh, I will decide my thoughts on the show after a trailer
GenerationX - 3/26/2014, 11:08 AM
Fish Mooney....ha!
Nomis - 3/26/2014, 11:08 AM
If it smells like fish...

ScorpioRisin - 3/26/2014, 11:09 AM
Dropped.
ForMeToPoopOn - 3/26/2014, 11:10 AM
@nailbiter

Sure, but the cut and color look a whole lot more 2000's than 80's to me -- along with all of the other wardrobe I've seen to this point.

Also, the shot of Cobblepot in the street had a vendor selling items that did not exist in the 80's. Continuity miss, or is this really taking place in the present day?
ForMeToPoopOn - 3/26/2014, 11:10 AM
@Nomis

Ha! Excellent old reference.
SuperCat - 3/26/2014, 11:11 AM

Not really feeling the look. I think that Jada will be good in the show though.

Why these bitches gotta have surgery on their faces ... So damn vain

@ ForMeToPoopOn - Lol! Abe Vigoda is the MAN!

Come on guy, its lunch time....Fish Tacos are on me!!

@nomis

I miss his appearances on the old Conan show -- the original Conan show.
CommanderShepard - 3/26/2014, 11:18 AM
@Yoss, ol' Gusto is going to crap his pants after seeing the desecration of Miley. LOL
