Here’s Why ‘Gotham’s Jim Gordon is Basically Murdering People Now

Gotham Gordon Galavan Murder Finale
FOX

There’s no grappling away from the fact FOX Bat-prequel Gotham isn’t every DC fan’s cup of tea, though we can at least credit them with a unique spin on Batman’s history. That spin … may have become a tailspin with Monday’s fall 2015 finale “Worse Than a Crime,” as Ben McKenzie’s Gordon seemingly broke the comic character’s morality for good, but we’ll let the showrunner and McKenzie himself explain.

Ben McKenzie Says ‘Gotham’ Season 2 Won’t Make the Same ‘Mistakes’ As Last Year

Gotham Season 2 Mistake Ben McKenzie
FOX

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.”

New ‘Gotham’ Character Portraits Include Poison Ivy And Her Completely Different Name

IvyMain

Viewers have had plenty of opportunities to see the lead characters of Fox's new not-Batman-we're-serious series Gotham staring ahead and looking solemn, but they haven't seen everyone just yet.

Entertainment Weekly has published eight new character portaits, and though they include some familiar faces -- Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Jada Pinkett-Smith as Fish Mooney, and David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, to name a few --the feature also comes with some new ones. Not only are viewers getting their first really good look at Edward Nygma, a.k.a. the Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), they're also seeing the show's version of Poison Ivy, played by Clare Foley. You'll notice she's not Pamela Isley anymore.

‘Gotham’ Star Ben McKenzie Says ‘This Is Not A Batman-From-The-’50s Kind Of Show’

Ben-McKenzie-Detective-James-Gordon-Gotham-main

Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller already sat under Entertainment Weekly's spotlight to talk about the new Fox series, and now it's series star Ben McKenzie's turn.

McKenzie will play a young James Gordon on the show (which the producers have promised will not be about Batman, even though there's a preteen Bruce Wayne running around). He told EW pretty unequivocally that the show will be a darker take, with plenty of moral gray areas, in case you were wondering whether it would be like every other Batman media property of the past 30 years or so. Here are some highlights from his interview.

First Official Photo Of Ben McKenzie As Jim Gordon From ‘Gotham’ Looks Bummed, Mustache-Free

Ben McKenzie Detective James Gordon Gotham main
FOX/Warner Bros.

The rollout of official photos of characters from the new Fox series Gotham continues as actor Ben McKenzie tweeted fans' first look at series star Jim Gordon.

While it appeared Donal Logue's Harvey Bullock will have a little more facial hair than the comics version, Gordon will notably have less. That's right: McKenzie won't be rocking Gordon's signature mustache in the role. He honestly looks a little distraught about it, but hey, Batman '66 Gordon didn't have a mustache, did he? And he came out OK. Chin up, fella.

Ben McKenzie Will Play Young James Gordon On FOX’s ‘Gotham’ TV Series

Warner Bros./TNT

He's spent most of his career protecting California -- first as an angsty teen on The O.C. and more recently as a cop on South LAnd, but it seems Benjamin McKenzie's next stop is Gotham as a young James "Jim" Gordon. This isn't McKenzie's first rodeo either, as he voiced a young Bruce Wayne in Warner Bros. Animation's 2011 Batman Year One animated feature, which adapted the comic of the same name by writer Frank Miller, artist David Mazzucchelli, colorist Richmond Lewis and letterer Todd Klein.
