As we've known since the series was first announced, Fox's Gotham won't be featuring Batman in its episodes - instead handing the spotlight over to Detective James Gordon - but it will be showcasing some of comics' most legendary villains. Its those characters who are at the center of this latest spot for the show.
Over the past few months we've heard quite lot about this cast of antagonists who will be working hard to make Gotham a shittier place. Now that we have this new TV spot, why not take the opportunity to break down everything we know?
Fish MooneyLet's start with Fish Mooney, who is played by Jada Pinkett Smith. She is actually one of the few characters in Gotham who doesn't originate from the source material, but she definitely has her own comic book style flair to her. As you can see from her surroundings in the image above, she's a nightclub owner, but she also happens to be one of the baddest crime bosses in town. And that's saying a lot when discussing the city of Gotham.
Oswald CobblepotServing by Fish Mooney's side is none other than Oswald Cobblepot, played by Robin Lord Taylor. While he will one day end up becoming a crime boss in his own right - going by the name The Penguin - in the series he finds himself as more of a lackey. From the looks of the previously trailer, howver, his lack of power doesn't stop him from having serious confrontations with Gordon.
Selina KyleThe new Selina Kyle, played by newcomer Camren Bicondova, still remains a bit of a mystery. She has been shown to enjoy slinkling around, hiding out and watching people, but right now it's hard to say exactly how she will fit into the landscape of Gotham.
Detective James Gordon and Detective Harvey BullockBalancing out the evil are our heroes, who fight for the forces of good. Well, one of them fights for good and the other one waits to see how it will benefit him. Here we have Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, who has just arrived in Gotham to try and help clean up the streets, and Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock his more morally ambiguous and experienced partner who knows his way around the city's back alleys.
We couldn't possibly be more pumped to see what this show has to offer, and we'll find out when Gotham debuts next fall.
