Earlier today, Fox announced that they were officially moving forward with Bruno Heller's Gotham series. We heard that the trailer for the drama, which is set up as a prequel to the Batman era of Gotham City, might arrive tonight during the premiere of 24: Live Another Day and sure enough, Fox dropped that on us between the first and second hour. Not only does the Gotham trailer give us a look at James Gordon's introduction to a young and very recently orphaned Bruce Wayne, but it also announced that the series will arrive this fall!

Amidst the characters glimpsed in the new trailer is Ben McKenzie, who will play James Gordon, a rookie detective who's partnered with Donal Logue's Harvey Bullock...

We see Gordon's meeting with young Bruce Wayne. The trailer reveals the brutal murders of Bruce's parents, which leave him orphaned but in the care of Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee).

There's also a glimpse of Bruce standing at the edge of a building...

Ready to jump or ready to take flight? Or perhaps he's conquering his fears.

We also see young Selina Kyle a couple of times.

And among the villainous types, we have Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney, looking very glamorous...

And Poison Ivy...

The dark tone of the series comes through as much in the imagery as it does in the ominous score of the trailer. There are also lines like "Sometimes I think this place is cursed" and talk about war. It's offset by Gordon's determination, as he promises Wayne he'll find out who killed his parents. And later we hear him explaining to Bruce, "Fear doesn't need conquering. Fear tells you where the edge is."

And then there's "However dark and scary the world might be right now, there will be light. There will be light."

Gotham arrives this Fall on Fox.
