Gotham First Look: Season 2 Poster Teases 'Rise of the Villains'

Jim Gordon might take up the most real estate on Gotham‘s official Season 2 poster, but that doesn’t mean he’s the focus of the Fox drama’s key art.

Rather, the image — which you can view in full below — highlights the baddies who will run the city in Gotham‘s sophomore season. Sure, The Penguin makes an appearance, but there are also a few new faces, among them Jessica Lucas (Gracepoint) as Tigress and James Frain (Orphan Black) as Theo Galavan.

The poster seems to have pulled its “Rise of the Villains” tagline straight from showrunner Bruno Heller’s mouth; Heller said at Comic-Con that Season 2 will focus on those who send Gotham on a “decline into chaos.”

Added star Ben McKenzie: “As the villains rise, there’s an arms race, and the good guys have to increase their force, as well. There’ll be new heroes introduced.”

Gotham returns Monday, Sept. 21, at 8/7c. Scroll down to view the full poster, then hit the comments with your thoughts.

  2. Joey says:

    I’m just kind of befuddled as to how Barbara is going to play a major role this season.

  3. Mr. Tran K says:

    What an awesome poster. Don’t know why they didn’t shown Lucius Fox aka Chris Chalk.

  4. militantgod says:

    Barbara is still in it because Barbara is very hot.

  5. There’s another version of the poster in which the image is arranged to resemble the Batman logo.

  6. Julia says:

    Awesome poster but where is the Joker that they teased last season?

  7. Joey Padron says:

    poster looks great. excited to see season 2!

  8. J says:

    Haven’t heard anything about Joker being on the show since the tease poster and haven’t heard of anyone cast as him yet so I’m thinking it was just to build hype…Time will tell.

  9. J says:

    It would’ve been nice to see Matt Ryan guest star on this show as well as John Constantine but Bruce it’s too far back in the past. Maybe they could have Bruce Wayne meet younger John Constantine…That would be kinda cool but definitely straying from the comic’s source material.

    Oh no…where’s Fish Mooney??
