Gotham: New Promo Throws Gordon a Sinister Welcome-Home Party

Villains on all sides, messages written in blood: Yep, Gotham‘s (Un)Welcome Wagon has found Jim Gordon.

In this new promo for the upcoming Fox drama, the future Commissioner Gordon (played by Southland/O.C. alum Ben McKenzie) arrives at a crime scene and gets the once-over from a slew of the city’s least-upstanding citizens, including Jada Pinkett Smith’s Fish Mooney, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle (aka the kitten who’ll later become Catwoman) and Robin Lord Taylor as The Penguin.

As McKenzie told TVLine last month, the DC Comics origin story focuses on returned war hero Gordon during his detective days, when he and partner Harvey Bullock (Sons of Anarchy‘s Donal Logue) try to keep the city safe from the likes of the baddies you see in this video.

Press PLAY on the video at the top of the page to watch Gordon’s dark homecoming.

    I’m never sure about prequels. It feels pointless rooting for a commissioner we already know is doomed to fail.

    • We don’t know that at all. This is not the comic book and there’s no reason why the show will stick to the comic canon.

        Methinks the cannon out of the window before they even started writing an ep – and I’m keen to see what they do. Hopefully I can enjoy the series without constantly being irked that we’ll never get a Bruce Wayne series which starts with him leaving Gotham and follows his journey around the world learning from masters in various crime fighting applicable techniques.

      Jim Gordon’s story isn’t Batman’s story. He can succeed in certain ways, and without his success, Batman couldn’t succeed at his mission. View this as something like The Chicago Code. The criminals will always be there, but that doesn’t mean that some can’t be taken down.
      Of course, this could also just be a different universe where Gordon roots out the crime in time for Bruce Wayne to lead a normal and happy life. DC does love its multiverse.

    Really loving the whole comic book vibe that some of the networks have going on at the moment. Between this and Arrow and The Flash I’m turning into quite the comic book nerd!!!! Can’t wait for all of them

    New promo video looks good. Excited to see show!

    I see this show as the next big hit on Fox, I don’t see it dropping below at least a 2 18-49 during its run. I’m hoping it does near enough, if not better than Sleepy Hollow as far as numbers go. Fox having another hit show would do it a lot of good.

    This show just looks so good in the promos. I can’t wait to watch. I love the concept, its original and edgy and the casting is perfect.
