First ‘Gotham’ trailer shows us a world before Batman

Update: FOX just released an extended, 2-minute version of the trailer. Check it out!

Earlier today we learned that FOX has officially ordered Gotham to series and the first trailer just aired tonight during 24: Live Another Day. A longer version was released online, check it out in the video player above. Gotham will tell the origin of James Gordon and Batman’s most popular villains. The trailer gives us a look at Penguin, Catwoman, Riddler, and Poison Ivy, early in their careers. What are your thoughts on the trailer? Let me know in the comments below.

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.
