Have you ever wondered what it is like to work on a TV show? Donal Logue has been on a ton of diverse programs, including Terriers, Grounded For Life, Vikings and Copper. Obviously, the man has no beef with working on television, but if you are guessing working on the small screen is a cake walk, guess again.
Gotham has only been on for a few short weeks, yet Fox’s drama is already becoming known for its slew of well-drawn villains. Jada Pinkett Smith plays a brand new character in the Batman prequel, and recently she divulged how she was able to land the part of Fish Mooney on the high profile series. Apparently, it involves a wig, a leash and young man.
Although DC Comics has many shows on the air this fall, most of them aren’t connected with each other. While Arrow and The Flash are building their own universe, Gotham and Constantine are off doing their own thing on Fox and NBC, and there are currently no plans to cross over with the CW shows... well, intentionally cross over.
Warner Bros. and DC have big plans for the silver screen, as they revealed today. However, while the DC Cinematic Universe is being built, the Arrow and Flash world is continuing to grow. Will the movies affect how the TV universe is handled? Read on for our take.
Gotham is a series that is more gritty than glittering, but that seems to be exactly what the doctor has ordered. Fans have flocked to the DC Entertainment series airing on Fox across its first few weeks, and it seems like the show has numerous characters and directions to still develop. With that in mind, it's no surprise that Fox would want to sign on for additional episodes.
Even though its only a couple episodes into its first season, Gotham has already introduced us to younger versions of a number of recognizable names and faces from Batman's infamous rogues gallery. Catwoman, Penguin, Riddler, Poison Ivy and more have already poked their heads out, and now news has come down that yet another one of the Dark Knight's most famous foes will soon be coming to join the ranks of the comic book television show.
Fox’s comic book-inspired crime drama Gotham had quite a challenge when its pilot premiered last week, reintroducing characters that Batman fanatics are oh-so-familiar with while trying to disperse them into a fully realized fictional world. Those who were bothered by the endless line of future villain appearances aren’t going to be won over by the full season promo seen above, but the rest of us can cackle gloriously over our first looks at these murderous baddies.
As it goes with most pilots, our first look at Gotham isn’t perfect, but it’s a startlingly effective and refreshing trip into a world that we’ve already experienced a million times before. Is it the best show on TV? Not yet, but here are five reasons why we might change our minds about that in the future.
Fox is one of several networks entering the small-screen superhero fray this fall but their comic-book adaptation stands apart from the rest by shifting the focus onto the supporting cast. Bruce Wayne's tragic beginning is only the catalyst for Gotham to show how the DC Comics' city known for criminality got its start. As for the show's beginnings, the series premiere is a lot like Two-Face; it's half-good and half-bad.
A recent batch of clips has popped up, and the video seen above features one of the most important moments in comic history, as Gotham City detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) meets a young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) for the first time, cementing a lifelong semi-partnership in the name of justice.
While series like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. get fans’ imaginations going crazy over what Marvel movie cameos may or may not be happening, you'll never be seeing Zack Snyder’s Batman saving anyone on The CW’s Arrow. DC has no interest in that kind of crossover appeal.
In this excellent preview, viewers are ushered into Gotham’s world in the most immersive way possible, at least through a video clip. It helps if you splash water on your face while you’re watching. Trust me. I'm Batman.
Holy bat-quisition! Fox’s upcoming drama series Gotham has a built-in fanbase, given the near-universal love for all things Batman-related, and that appears to be good enough for Netflix, which can't be bothered with waiting for the show to come out before signing an exclusive deal for worldwide rights.
Fox’s long-awaited DC Comics series, Gotham, is finally hitting the network next month, and to give fans a little bit of an idea about what they can expect, the show released an extended preview of the series called “Gotham: The Legend Reborn.” Clocking in at 21 minutes, the preview is chock full of actors and crew members talking about the great experience shooting Gotham has been.
Fox is gearing up to premiere Gotham this fall, and while we’ve seen trailers and TV spots, it looks like there is still room to add new characters. On Friday, the Batman prequel series announced that Dexter actor David Zayas is joining the cast, and in the new series, he won’t be playing one of the detectives in the squad.
