Now that Fox has officially ordered Gotham to series, only more plot details are beginning to surface. The first full trailer put the focus on telling Jim Gordon’s story, yet to fan’s surprise didn’t shy away from incorporating many of Gotham’s most infamous residents.

The first official cast photo (seen above) drove home the same point, with Harvey Bullock and Gordon taking center stage but making sure a young Bruce Wayne, Selina Kyle, and Oswald Cobblebot among others were seen waiting in the wings. Almost since its inception Gotham was intended to not only chronicle Gordon’s early days in Gotham, but also the formative period for those villains as well as Bruce.

Yet Gotham is by no means Batman’s origin retold yet again. Showrunner Bruno Heller has made it abundantly clear we won’t see Bruce don a cowl or even attempt any juvenile vigilantism. The cast is an ensemble of some the most interesting characters to ever set foot in Gotham, but it’s the dynamic between Bullock and Gordon that will form the series’ core.

Adding to their earlier announcement today that Gotham will air on Mondays at 8pm EST, Fox has also released a collection of new photos and character images of the series’ intriguing line-up. Check them out, below:

Gotham will serve as the lead in program for Fox’s hit series, Sleepy Hollow. The network is obviously hopeful the decision will be mutually beneficial for both series seeing as Sleepy Hollow‘s supernatural procedural will compliment Gotham‘s neo-noir police drama. And if successful, fans of one could easily become fans of the other.

The first season of Gotham has already been entirely plotted out and is expected to be at least” 13 episodes, following along with the ongoing trend of shorter seasons for dramas. We know its premise will focus on Gordon investigating the murder of Bruce’s parents, but whether or not that mystery will unfold over one season or the entire series’ run is less clear. Either way, with a supporting cast filled with such colorful characters (and many more available to introduce), Gotham won’t be running out of material any time soon.

Which characters and back stories are you most looking forward to Gotham exploring? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. This already looks better than Benman and MOS.

    This casting looks great.

    • How would you know? The only thing of the MoS sequel we’ve seen yet is the back of the Batmobile…

      • Now that we’ve seen Batfleck, I’m curious to hear what you think.

  2. not impressed at all… the trailer was bad too. i dont get the hype, now constantine, that was an amazing trailer. but who wants to see a guy that needs batman to do his work for him? insane really.

    they should have given a tv series to another character… but if they cant do batman then they will try and do the closest thing to it.

    • I felt that way at first too. And a previous SR post about a leaked early draft of the pilot episode made me worry even more. But after seeing the trailer and reading the character descriptions, I started to change my mind.

      Not every comic book inspired TV show needs to be about a superhero. Heck, even in comic books, some of the most interesting stories are about people on the sidelines (e.g., Marvel’s Front Lines). And even if this show is half as successful as the first few seasons of Smallville, it will be great.

      Maybe you should just wait to watch the first few episodes until you form an opinion about it. It may not be the DC superhero TV show that you wanted, but it may very well still be one of the best new TV shows of next year.

      • Marvels is probably the greatest Marvel Comics story I’ve ever read and it was purely about a photographer in the newspaper business who manages to take shots of iconic events in the Marvel universe and his opinions on what happened.

        This Gotham show looks like it’ll be kinda like that without the superpowers and setting up a world similar to one seen in recent great detective shows like True Detective, Low Winter Sun and Mob City.

      • i wont waste my time watching it. i think its a stupid series to make and the trailer was not good

        • …and yet you keep coming back to complain about it.

          Classy.

  3. I liked the trailer but Selena Kyle should not be older than Bruce Wayne.

    Hopefully in the series she has a daughter and names her Selena and it is the child who will one day become cat woman.

    • I think that they are both 13 in real life. I’m pretty sure she is Catwoman. I’m sure they’re both the same age in the show, as well.

      • i ain’t a 100% sure but still sure enough to tell, i heard somewhere that she’s going to be like 14 maybe 15 and bruce like 10 or 12

        • I heard that too. I think it was a previous SR post. But a two or three year age gap is quite negligible.

  4. The shadow in the pic of Donal Logue looks intentional and helps stylise the shot. The shadow in everyone elses pic is no doubt intended to do the same but not near as well.

  5. Mrs . Jada slaying in these promo pics looking like a fierce b!tch !!!!

  6. I am really looking forward to this show. Some Batman characters I wouldn’t mind showing are Carmine Falcone, Rupert Thorne. I would like to see an old Batman villain from Batman Year Two show up,The Reaper. I think that he would fit nicely in this show. Maybe seeing an older vigilante come back to wreak havoc on Gotham’s underworld and Jim Gordon has to stop him.

  7. Sarah Essen looks older than Gordon, and Barbara is smoking

  8. I don’t know why… but one of my first impressions of this show after watching the trailer, was that it reminded me of Battlestar Galactica. In that, it’s a classic that you’re familiar with, but it has the opportunity for reinterpreting some iconic ideas and characters. I really hope they have some earth shattering twists about the different characters and their stories. Like how they revealed Sharon Valeri was a Cylon, or how Kara Thrace and Gauis Balter were more than what they seemed.

  9. That character image of Cobblepot… I wasn’t sure I liked him as the future Penguin, but I’m seeing it now. Can’t wait!

  10. I’m not sure why but I’m quite digging Sean Pertwee as Alfred. I’m hoping this iteration of Alfred is a badass just like in Batman: Earth One.

  11. A TV series based on Batman characters but without Batman in it.
    I’ll pass

  12. I am really looking forward to this show. They can make it a great detective series if they don’ t mess it up. Maybe give the Dark knight mythos some more credit ith the non comic fans.

  13. This show looks very promising,really want to see their take on the Penguin,actor look the part.

  14. I cannot fathom how this can be dismissed, with the way it is shot, edited and the cast. The scripts should be sharp and well done by the looks of things. If the failure of AOS is everything we have seen, then Gotham will be leaps and bounds ahead and actually a smart serious that will have a more broad appeal. As a lead in to SH, then FOX is taking this seriously.

  15. Sean Pertwee, better put subtitles up. Had a heck of time understanding him in Elementary.

  16. From some of the photos across the net, Camren Bicondova looks like Michelle Pfeiffer at times.
