Fox has released another character photo for their upcoming Gotham City-set drama Gotham. This one gives us a look at a character we should be pretty familiar with from the films.

Following up on yesterday's glimpse of Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock for Fox's Gotham comes our first look at the beautiful Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, also known as the future Catwoman. She's just a teen in this series, which serves as a prequel to Batman's era in Gotham and will focus on Ben McKenzie's character Detective Jim Gordon.
Fox has given us our first look at Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock for their anticipated DC-inspired series Gotham. The character is Jim Gordon's partner and mentor and is described as a rough-around-the-edges" detective who "plays loose with police procedure, but get results -- and he does so with old-school, hard-ass panache." Seems like a great fit for Donal Logue.

Fox's Gotham series has found its Bruce Wayne and he's a preteen who's no stranger to the FOX network. Touch star David Mazouz has been cast to play the pre-Batman character in the drama, which will focus on Detective James Gordon and the origin story of some of Gotham City's most infamous villains. Mazouz isn't the only younger actor to join the cast, as Gotham has also cast Selena Kyle.
It looks like Fox's series Gotham has found its Fish Mooney. The latest bit of casting for the anticipated Gotham City-set drama puts Jada Pinkett Smith among the cast, and from the description of her character and at least one of her known associates, it sounds like she'll be on the villain side of this drama, which is expected to tell the origin story of some of Gotham's most infamous villains
Last time we saw Donal Logue on television, he was on a quest for vengeance in Sons of Anarchy and making a mess of things in Charming in the process. But it sounds like he'll be on the right side of the law in his role on Fox's highly anticipated Gotham series. Logue is the latest start to join the cast of the drama, which is being written by Bruno Heller and already has a series commitment from Fox.
Following word that Ben McKenzie was signed on to play the lead role in Fox's planned Gotham series comes even more casting news for roles including the Penguin -- also known as Oswald Cobblepot -- Captain Eessen, Alfred Pennyworth, and Barbara Kean. What's even more exciting about the casting news is that it comes with some character descriptions that give us some new clues about this promising new series.
Since last fall we've known that Fox would be bringing a Gotham City-set drama to the small screen. In fact, the network seemed so intent to make the Commissioner Gordon-focused Gotham happen that they sent the project straight to series, leading us to wonder who would succeed Gary Oldman and those who came before him in filling the police commissioner's shoes?
When the new Fox comic book series Gotham was announced back in September, the network was very clear about one specific aspect of the show: Batman will not be included. Set in a time before the Caped Crusader threw on his cowl and started scaring the shit out of the city's criminal element, Gotham will actually be an origin story for Police Commissioner Gordon and his battle with some notorious supervillains. But while Batman may not have a part in the series, that doesn't mean his alter ego won't.
It's been a long time since we last heard anything about the upcoming television series Gotham.
