Yesterday’s first clip of Gotham Season 2 had things looking more or less the same, despite what series star Ben McKenzie says about an improved approach, though the full photo set from the premiere bring with them an intriguing new figure. Are citizens of Gotham finally suiting up, costume, cape and all?
Gotham split itself right down the middle between serious drama and campy Schumacher homage, and now with Barbara and a proto-Joker front and center for Season 2, which one would you imagine leads the charge by our first clip? Are you ready to visit Arkham and kick off the “Rise of the Villains?”
Gotham hasn’t proven particularly shy with the lion’s share of Season 2 footage and teasers, but at least a few faces have been missing from its city streets. No longer, as the full character gallery for Gotham Season 2 brings Two-Face, Lucius Fox and more back into the fold, along with some new menace for our future Batman.
As Gotham Season 2's promotion ramps up, focus continually aims at the colorful villains emerging throughout the city, rather than young Bruce Wayne’s cowled future. Still, a new photo takes us inside the major Bat-revelation of Season 1's finale, while Ben McKenzie offers his take on when the series should introduce a full-grown Batman.
Gotham star Ben McKenzie recently promised the second season to improve upon muddled reception of the first, but the latest trailer seems to be clowning around. There’s more Joker camp than ever in a new “Rise of the Villains” spot, and we even get a taste of (sigh) Barbara’s arc to boot.
Gotham Season 2 has debuted a few teasers and posters by now, with series star Ben McKenzie swearing up and down this year won’t make the same ‘mistake’ of last year, but does Season 2 look any different by its first photo? Former Commish and Freak Show vet Michael Chiklis arrives in Gotham by its first official promo shot, staring down the corrupt GCPD.
FOX’s Gotham clearly made enough Bat-fans happy to justify an extended first season order, as well as the Season 2 renewal, though many (like us) derided the show’s take on the Dark Knight’s early days. Series lead Ben McKenzie apparently agrees, calling Season 1 a “mistake,” and assuring this year will be “exactly what the fans want to see.”
FOX’s Gotham has been reticent to use more notable Batman villains in recurring roles (instead making near everyone a series regular), but the FOX DC drama will burn one off for its its take on Firefly. The flaming Bat-baddie will blaze through Gotham for a short Season 2 arc, but is it another setup for decades down the line?
Five different DC dramas will air on the major networks by early 2016, another even resurrected for a surprise crossover, and now the comic company has its eye on a new angle. NBC has put into development Powerless, a — and we’re in no way joking here — workplace comedy set amid the backdrop of DC superheroes and their destructive battles.
In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies, You Think You Know TV, and Post Credits comes a brand new YouTube series: Top Five!
