New ‘Gotham’ TV spot focuses on the villains (video)

A new TV spot for Gotham has been released and it focuses on the pilot episode’s main villains. The video is narrated by Ben McKenzie, who plays a young James Gordon, and teases the origins of the Penguin, Catwoman, and mob boss Fish Mooney, an original villain for the show.

In addition to the villains shown in this new video, young versions of Poison Ivy and even the Joker will show up when Gotham premieres on FOX this fall.

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.
