FOX has just released what might be the most interesting trailer for Gotham yet. The new sixty second trailer shows a young Bruce Wayne starting to exhibit the sort of behavior one might expect on his journey to becoming Batman.
The end of the trailer also shows a rather amusing bit, which explains how the Penguin gets his name.
Before there was Batman, there was Gotham. Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker? Gotham is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told.
Gotham is scheduled to premiere on September 22, 2014 at 8 PM on FOX.
