‘Gotham’ cast and crew explain the upcoming series in new video

FOX released a “first look” featurette for Gotham today which offers a lot of new footage from the show that we haven’t already seen in the trailer. Hear from writer/producer Bruno Heller, director/executive producer Danny Cannon, Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, and Jada Pinkett Smith. The cast and crew explain what fans can expect to see in the series and which villains are likely to pop up.

Gotham will explore how Joker became the Joker, as well as Scarecrow, Penguin, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and the Riddler, to name few. It certainly looks like it’s going to have a dark tone to capture the feel of Gotham City.

Check out the new featurette and let me know what you think in the comments below.

Based upon characters published by DC Entertainment and produced by Warner Bros. Television, GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. Starring Ben McKenzie (“Southland,” “The O.C.”), Donal Logue (“Sons of Anarchy,” “Terriers,” “Vikings,” “Copper”) and Jada Pinkett Smith (“The Matrix” films, “HawthoRNe”), 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. Executive producer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist”) wrote the pilot, which was directed and executive-produced by Emmy Award nominee Danny Cannon (the “CSI” franchise, “Nikita”). John Stephens will serve as an executive producer on the series.
