"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."

Gotham premieres this Fall.

ALmazing - 3/26/2014, 1:14 PM
Where is the stache bro?

CommanderShepard - 3/26/2014, 1:14 PM
I would bet money that the moustache and Glasses come in later seasons. Looks good, though.
fceeviper - 3/26/2014, 1:16 PM
Moustache, where is???!!!!
Reasonnnn - 3/26/2014, 1:17 PM

Wait...no moustache?

To be fair I too lack the secret behind growing a great moustache ;(

CherryBomb - 3/26/2014, 1:20 PM
Nice!

And he's young, he'll get the stache as time goes on.
Spock0Clock - 3/26/2014, 1:21 PM
@CommanderShepard
I admire your optimism...
ShawnMadden - 3/26/2014, 1:23 PM
My god...Gordon is sexy as [frick].

Wait, I mean...the picture looks good.

Ah...damn it.
AXE - 3/26/2014, 1:24 PM
Lol at all the mustache comments xD
WAYNE - 3/26/2014, 1:26 PM
HAS A VERY GORDON-ISH FACE. I WAS INITIALLY UPSET BY THE LACK OF STACHE AND SPECS BUT I GUESS LOGICALLY THAT WOULD COME WITH AGE

ON THE FENCE ABOUT THIS ONE AS A WHOLE THOUGH

"FISH MOONEY" *shivers in disgust*
WombRaider - 3/26/2014, 1:27 PM
I hope he grows a mustache like arrows finally gets a mask
TheFirstAvenger97 - 3/26/2014, 1:27 PM
Cool but it's missing something...?
SuperDude001 - 3/26/2014, 1:28 PM
I think he'll make a good Gordon. Tbh the mustache would've looked awful while he's this young, but they really could've gone with the glass or a stubble beard cause right now I find this show's Bullock looks more like Gordon than this young Gordon.
Tuuralihn - 3/26/2014, 1:33 PM
'TACHE UP
Darktower - 3/26/2014, 1:34 PM
some b0dy pls put the moustache on that pic already !
SaxoWolf - 3/26/2014, 1:35 PM

Melvinwerewolf - 3/26/2014, 1:36 PM
he'll probably grow the stache throughout the show
LordOfTheZegaRealm - 3/26/2014, 1:36 PM
He needs a mustache, and if not mustache at least some glasses.
ALmazing - 3/26/2014, 1:36 PM
The stache, the stache



On a serious note, I would have liked this show to be a period piece, like a 70's detective drama ala Columbo.
AlSimmons - 3/26/2014, 1:36 PM
That's not Gordon. That's just douche prettyboy they dug up to draw in the ladies. No red hair, no mustache, no Coke bottle glasses, no revolver... He's about as much Gordon as Bale was Batman.
MrMartinMarvel - 3/26/2014, 1:38 PM
Stache or GTFO!
JorEllinator - 3/26/2014, 1:38 PM
I think it's darn selfish. Yes, I do. It's fricking selfish. How dare he? HOW DARE HE!? There are millions and millions of people out there incapable of growing a moustache. I cannot myself, it just will not grow. Benjamin McKenzie has been blessed with this special talent, with this gift. I've seen the man with facial hair, I KNOW! This man has been given a gift and he chooses not to use it? How dare he? Now, we shall take action. We shall declare war. We are declaring war on the very skin between his nose and mouth. Comicbookmovie.com vs the skin between Ben McKenzie's nose and mouth! We shall be unstoppable! MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

What am I doing with my life...?
Melvinwerewolf - 3/26/2014, 1:38 PM
guaranteed the mustache will be a part of the show
Nomis - 3/26/2014, 1:39 PM
Back in the day, Gusto always style out in a 'Boss' "tash!

AXE - 3/26/2014, 1:41 PM
LMAO @Nomis
InfiniteMonkey - 3/26/2014, 1:41 PM
Didn't he BANG Micha?!

Go Gordon!
VolkanTaskillas - 3/26/2014, 1:43 PM
No mustache, no Gordon.
Simple.
BigMikeReviews - 3/26/2014, 1:44 PM
I like it, the moustache will grow as the city decays and becomes harder for poor ol Jim to deal with
ALmazing - 3/26/2014, 1:44 PM
Gotham should have been like this!

ezra - 3/26/2014, 1:44 PM
He kinda looks like Russell Crowe from LA Confidential.
BatManiac - 3/26/2014, 1:44 PM
Dotanuki - 3/26/2014, 1:45 PM
He looks tired and he needs to lay off the lip balm.
Melvinwerewolf - 3/26/2014, 1:46 PM
@BigMikeReviews
I totally agree
DrunkenNukem - 3/26/2014, 1:47 PM
