Gotham Cast Is Ready to Serve 'The Best, Most Ardent Fans in the World'

With great power comes great…. Er, wrong universe.

The cast of Fox’s Gotham knows that devotees of the Batman comic books are “the best and most ardent fans in the world,” and as such they are ready to do right by the young Bruce Wayne’s hometown.

“For 75 years, this franchise has been around, so we’re well aware of the responsibility,” notes Donal Logue (Sons of Anarchy), who plays Gotham police detective Jim Gordon’s shady partner, Harvey Bullock. “But we’re eager to show it to them.”

As the cast visited TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con suite en masse, Ben McKenzie (who plays Gordon) compared the streets of Gotham to those of Southland‘s Los Angeles, Logue and Jada Pinkett Smith teased “a long history” between Bullock and mob boss Fish Mooney, and Camren Bicondova and David Mazouz cast their votes for favorite Catwomen and Batmen of the past.

Exec producer Danny Cannon meanwhile trumpeted the titular metropolis, as envisioned here for the small screen, as “a character” in and of itself, “a perfect fantasy of everything we remember about Gotham.”

    This actually got me excited for the show. When girl immediately said Juilette Nemar that it solidified my hope that this show would be good. And is Jada Pinkett Smith holding a baseball bat, lol.

    Just by the time Gotham gets round to actually introducing any real enemies or future villain’s it will already have been bettered on Arrow — Ra’s Al Ghul, The League, Deathstroke and Harley Quinn already been done. Gotham is going to be nothing more than a procedural about Jim Gordon and very little to do with the myth and law of Batman…

      Your last sentence is how I fell as well. Will give it a shot. If they start off every episode with a murder and is basically csi in Gotham city I won’t be watching long. Also, arrow season 2 was excellent. Can’t wait for season 3.

    I can’t wait to see this show. I think its going to be awesome. A whole new slant on the superhero genre.

  7. AnnieM says:

    I’ll watch even if it IS a procedural, as I don’t watch any of them now. Last one I watched was Cold Case, which I still sometimes miss.

  8. Why do Jada have the bat with her?
