“However dark and scary the world may be right now, there will be light.”

FOX has just released the extended trailer for what I’m calling one of my picks of the upcoming Fall pilot season, Gotham.

The Batman prequel series will follow a young Detective Gordon after he is recruited by Captain Sarah Essen of the Gotham City Police Department, to try and solve one of Gotham’s most high-profile cases: the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne.

After meeting the couple’s son Bruce, now in the care of the family butler Alfred, Detective Gordon tells the boy “I promise you, I will find the man who did this”.

Once we can reconcile within ourselves seeing “Batman” as a child, we are then introduced to a host of others who will eventually become some of the best known villains in the DC universe, The Penguin, The Joker, Poison Ivy and Catwoman.

Check out the full length trailer below:


Gotham stars Ben McKenzie as Det. Gordon, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne and Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, alongside Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett Smith, Robin Lord Taylor, Camren Bicondova, Erin Richards, Zabryna Guevara and Cory Michael Smith.
