Gotham Season 2 has debuted a few teasers and posters by now, with series star Ben McKenzie swearing up and down this year won’t make the same ‘mistake’ of last year, but does Season 2 look any different by its first photo? Former Commish and Freak Show vet Michael Chiklis arrives in Gotham by its first official promo shot, staring down the corrupt GCPD.

Marvel’s Jessica Jones doesn’t yet have an official photo to its name, but already Netflix successor Luke Cage may have his big bad. Alfre Woodard has reportedly joined the series in a majorly antagonistic role, one adapted from classic Luke Cage villain “Black Mariah.”
The Flash gave us a speedy look at Season 2 the other day, and while a full trailer seems to be lagging behind, The CW has given us another burst. See The Flash’s new Season 2 duds in action, and find out what Legends of Tomorrow put in an appearance by the latest teaser footage!
A few months back, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans were surprised to learn Marvel and ABC intended to develop a spinoff around Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter, ostensibly two of the strongest additions to the main series. That project was quickly shelved, but will apparently fly again with a pilot order for Marvel’s Most Wanted on ABC.
FOX’s Gotham clearly made enough Bat-fans happy to justify an extended first season order, as well as the Season 2 renewal, though many (like us) derided the show’s take on the Dark Knight’s early days. Series lead Ben McKenzie apparently agrees, calling Season 1 a “mistake,” and assuring this year will be “exactly what the fans want to see.”
The Walking Dead won’t shamble out its sixth season until October, but in the meantime this weekend will kick off the zombie apocalypse anew in a different part of the country with “companion series” spinoff Fear The Walking Dead. Want an early sneak peek? Check out the first scene of the series right now!
The fluid design of Netflix’s website has occasionally given way to early gaffes among the original series, including an early House of Cards Season 3 leak, and Daredevil’s red costume, so might Jessica Jones follow suit? All 13 episode titles from Marvel’s next Defender have reportedly emerged online, some of which could tease a Power-ful climax to the season.
Can you believe it took until the second season was about to start for Funko to get on board the Gotham train? To be fair, it did also take a few seasons to get Arrow Pops, but Funko moved fast with the Flash [insert Price is Right winning theme here]. These are the jokes, people. Anyway, this week, Funko announced the superhero police drama Gotham would indeed finally join the Pop family of figures, with the major players from the cast getting their own caricatures in the highly popular line.
Coming in September, the Gotham Funko Pop series will include James Gordon, Harvey Bullock, Fish Mooney, Oswald Cobblepot, Selina Kyle and Bruce Wayne. All of them are immediately familiar if you've seen the show, but Fish Mooney and Selina Kyle, and to a degree Oswald, have a bit more of a signature look that transcends the plainclothes stylings of the GCPD and boarding school brat Bruce. There's an outfit you never saw Kenner make way back when.
The early timing of Comic-Con 2015 prevented The Flash or Arrow from debuting any new footage of the fall premiers, despite myriad set photo teases, but it seems Barry Allen has won the race to get some footage out there. Watch The Flash face off against Atom Smasher, and check out Barry’s Bat-Signal in our first official Season 2 teaser!
FOX’s Gotham has been reticent to use more notable Batman villains in recurring roles (instead making near everyone a series regular), but the FOX DC drama will burn one off for its its take on Firefly. The flaming Bat-baddie will blaze through Gotham for a short Season 2 arc, but is it another setup for decades down the line?
