Gotham Tv: Worlds of Gotham

gotham_62759Gotham is quickly becoming one of my most anticipated new shows (just behind The Strain and Flash) so im jumping at the opportunity to get my hands on any new images or footage. And today we have been treated to a new featurette that highlights the ‘Worlds of Gotham’ in an interview with the show runner along with som new footage- so lets see it.

The featurette above contains a short interview with showrunner Bruno Heller, and some brief new scenes featuring characters like Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), Detective Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Detective Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), Edward Nygma/The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith), Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Robin Taylor), Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) and Ivy Pepper/Poison Ivy (Clare Foley).

Are you guys as excited by this show as I am?

If so heres the latest ‘Hero’ TV spot as small bonus

Gotham signed by FOX

Well DC had some big news last night to try and take some of the attention away from the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D premiere- and that news is that Gotham will be getting a full series to air on the FOX network.

The series is set to focus on a young James Gordon and the villains that have made Gotham famous. This is huge news (and may solve this rumour) as this will officially be DC’s second live action television series- along with Arrow. However DC could potentially have a third arriving soon with Flash set to debut in Arrow series2, and if rumours are true get his own series from there.

The series is set to be written by Bruno Heller, who’s previous work includes ‘Rome’ and ‘The Mentalist’ and will launch during the 2014-2015 television season. The only real confirmed information, except for the title, is that the series will be set prior to Gordon meeting Batman and the Caped Crusader will not be appearing in the series at all.

Let speculation begin on how this could tie-in into the other DC television programmes, but i would think with them being on different networks and set in different times (Gotham will be earlier than Arrow) I’m fairly certainly this will be a stand alone series. But that makes me no less excited by the news.
