FOX’s ‘Gotham’ has taken stabs at multiple characters of Batman lore in the past few weeks, from The Electrocutioner to Arnold Flass, but this coming Monday may see the most prequel-y origin yet. Meet Scarecrow’s pappy in a new trailer and first photos from ‘Gotham’'s introduction to “The Fearsome Dr. Crane!”
ScreenCrush editor, comic-book lover, and undiagnosed masochist Matt Singer is systematically watching every single (American) comic-book movie ever made in the order in which they were released. This week in The Complete History of Comic-Book Movies: The Dark Knight makes his first appearance on the big screen):
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ detects its 13th installment in “Welcome Back, Jim Gordon,” as the murder of a witness turns Gordon's suspicions on the GCPD itself, while a captive Fish seeks to reclaim her throne from Penguin, and Bruce looks to reconnect with Selina.
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ spends most of its time setting up major DC villains, rather than feature them outright, but at least one of Batman’s future baddies will come out of the box to play. ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ and ‘Thor’ star Colm Feore will stop by Batman’s beginnings as the villainous Dollmaker, but could the character have any connection to the ‘Arrow’ villain of the same name?
‘Gotham’ is as ‘Gotham’ does, and while the FOX Bat-prequel’s first 2015 installments weren’t entirely indicative of the series this city deserves, will “Welcome Back, Jim Gordon” right the course? Find out for yourself with the full photo set and three new clips from next week’s all-new ‘Gotham’!
While the upcoming DC Comics movie ‘Suicide Squad’ may have lost a Tom Hardy, it may be gaining a Ben Affleck. A new report suggests that Ben Affleck's Batman, will make a cameo at the end of the movie, introducing him to the new Joker (Jared Leto) and setting up his future standalone movies. Possible spoilers ahead...
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ detects its 12th installment in “What the Little Bird Told Him,” as Gordon reclaims his old job to track down escaped Arkham inmate Jack Gruber, while Fish finally makes her move on Carmine Falcone, and Penguin finds himself caught in a compromising position.
We’re pretty set with Ben Affleck as Batman for a while, though Warner Bros. currently has no plans for another solo film for the caped crusader for the time being. Eventually, we will get another solo Batman film, and WB will have to find another star to don the cowl in the pursuit of gritty justice. No worries, though—‘Game of Thrones’ star Kit Harington has volunteered for the job. You know nothing, Bruce Wayne.
FOX will give Batman further beginnings with another round of ‘Gotham’ in the fall, but Jim Gordon’s won’t be the only precinct hanging around for an additional season. In addition to the renewal, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ will officially remain open another year, along with FOX’s new hip-hop drama ‘Empire.’
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ returned with a disappointing visit to the “Rogues’ Gallery” a few weeks ago, but will Monday’s “What the Little Bird Told Him” get our Bat-beginnings back on track? Watch Gordon’s relationship with Leslie Thompkins take an expected turn, and Penguin scheme some scheming schemes in the latest clip and photos!
