Gotham has never shied away from hammering home its origins and imagery, and Season 2 seems no different by the first posters. Watch the villains rise (weren’t they already doing that?) with a batty first look at the new FOX season, complete with shots of our new big Gotham big bads.

Batman’s iconic animated series has influenced The Dark Knight’s legacy and vocal talent for decades, but did you know that Tim Curry almost voiced The Joker before Mark Hamill? Or that the animated adaptation created Harley Quinn altogether? You are vengeance, and you are the night, you will enjoy our 18th episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which flies through Gotham City on leather wings for Batman: The Animated Series!
FOX’s Gotham has only expanded as we approach the Season 2 premiere, adding more regulars and Batty villains than we can count, but may finally have stumbled over its own size. Two more of Gotham’s finest won’t return for Season 2 as series regulars, while a new international trailer spotlights lunatics running Arkham Asylum this time out.
After yesterday’s three new Batman vs. Superman images from the pages of Empire magazine, today we have even more from the upcoming superhero film. From that same magazine article, we have both Ben Affleck and director Zack Snyder talking about this film’s version of Batman (which Affleck describes as a “f---ed up Batman”), plus a bunch of new photos from the film.
Following the Batman vs. Superman info dump that came out of Comic-Con, we thought it might be a while before we saw or heard anything from the upcoming superhero movie. After all, we did get an extended new trailer, new images and a new poster. But today, we have three new Batman vs. Superman pics each showing off one of the film’s three main characters: Batman, Superman and Lex Luthor.
Gotham gave out a few tidbits of Season 2 from its Comic-Con 2015 panel, though only those in attendance got to see new footage. Now, the DC drama goes batty with villains in two new trailers for the fall premiere, including a new look at the Batcave, and the so-called “Rise of the Villains.”
FOX’s Gotham proved somewhat light on announcements at Comic-Con 2015, the only major casting since a questionable love interest for Bruce, but now the GCPD has a major new Shield on the force. Hot off the Freak Show, Vick Mack - er, Michael Chiklis will clean up Gotham city streets as a Season 2 Regular.
It’s been a week for DC castings, between Flash-y new additions and new Gotham love interests, and only hours after Arrow Season 4 added itself a Terrific new hero, so too will a new villain make anarchy reign. Bates Motel star Alexander Calvert will face off against the Green Arrow in Season 4, debuting in Star City as DC villain “Anarky.”
Whatever your feelings on FOX’s Gotham, the Bat-prequel drama certainly crammed in a number of recognizable Dark Knight names, occasionally in tyke form. That trend looks to continue in Season 2, as Gotham adds a Goldbergs star as young Master Bruce’s new “love interest,” Silver St. Cloud.
After the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, where the new trailer was unveiled, fans at the DC Comics booth were treated to a special appearance from the cast and director from the upcoming Warner Bros. tentpole film.
