Yesterday’s first clip of Gotham Season 2 had things looking more or less the same, despite what series star Ben McKenzie says about an improved approach, though the full photo set from the premiere bring with them an intriguing new figure. Are citizens of Gotham finally suiting up, costume, cape and all?
Gotham has never shied away from hammering home its origins and imagery, and Season 2 seems no different by the first posters. Watch the villains rise (weren’t they already doing that?) with a batty first look at the new FOX season, complete with shots of our new big Gotham big bads.
FOX’s Gotham has only expanded as we approach the Season 2 premiere, adding more regulars and Batty villains than we can count, but may finally have stumbled over its own size. Two more of Gotham’s finest won’t return for Season 2 as series regulars, while a new international trailer spotlights lunatics running Arkham Asylum this time out.
There was a whole lot of wishy-washy nonsense surrounding Cameron Monaghan’s role as Jerome in Gotham Season 1. Was he FOX’s Bat-prequel version of the Joker or wasn’t he? Executive producer Bruno Heller teased the arrival of Batman’s most famous villain in Season 1, but backtracked later to say we would see a “pre-embryonic” origin story of the character in Season 2. But according to a photo posted by Monaghan, we may have been misled — or not. I don’t know. This is getting out of hand.
They’ll never stop The Simpsons, so have no fear, they’ve got stories for years, but did you know America’s favorite animated family was thought up in the lobby before a pitch meeting? Or that Matt Groening based most of the characters on his own family? These are just some of the Springfield kwyjibos populating the tenth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which pays a visit to The Simpsons’ home state of … uh, somewhere!
Of the many Batman characters paraded through Gotham’s first FOX season, few proved so perfunctory as a Harvey Dent three times Bruce’s age and with anger issues already in place. Well, good news, Gotham fan! Nicholas D’Agosto will flip coins and double-pun through Season 2 as a series regular.
The first trailer for Fox's Lucifer TV adaptation is here, and it looks bad. Much like iZombie, this series looks to have sacrificed most of what made it vivid in the name of providing yet another procedural. Cop and wacky sidekick? What’s the new angle? Oh, he’s literally the devil. I coulda just watched The Collector.
FOX’s Gotham lay plenty of groundwork in Season 1 for Batman’s beginning (like, way too much in fact), but its first major Season 2 change proves a welcome one. Not only will Morena Baccarin reprise her role as future Bat-ally Dr. Leslie Thompkins, she’ll even stick around as a series regular.
Ladies, gentlemen and Batman fans of all types, our long national nightmare has come to an end now that Gotham has officially come to a Season 1 close. Bullets flew, Riddlers riddled and bats fluttered, so find out if "All Happy Families Are Alike" with our spoilery review of Gotham's first season finale!
DC’s foothold in the TV game got exponentially bigger with the potential for yet another Arrow spinoff for The CW, but FOX too is making strides toward its comic future. Following the pilot greenlight of Neil Gaiman Sandman spinoff Lucifer, FOX has appointed Rush star Tom Ellis as our new Prince of Darkness.
