Late last week, new character images were revealed surrounding the highly anticipated show ‘Gotham’ set to premiere this fall. Trailers have been astounding fans everywhere and the show has been gaining more and more attention the closer the fall season draws in.

These new character images focus on the heroes, rogues and notable villains in the Gotham universe, including the made for TV role Fish Mooney played by Jada Pinkett Smith. Her characters creation mimics that of Harley Quinn who first appeared on hit Batman Animated Series. If her character gains enough intrigue like Harley, there is a possibility that she may make an appearance in the comics. But that’s just a speculation.

But back to the images. Each image was brilliantly crafted, grabbing something very essential from each character and weaving it into their profile.  This is something as simple as an expression to a symbolic object.  And that is a powerful trick used to establish, for new fans and old, who they are and why they’re deadly.  There is also the added help that the actors capture who their characters are amazingly in their photos, from just a simple expression, they will hook any viewer and comic book fans a like.

Check out the gallery below featuring fan favorites like Selina Kyle, Ivy Pepper, Edward Nygma and Bruce Wayne. (All character descriptions are provided by Entertainment Weekly.)

Edward Nygma / The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith): A brilliant young forensic scientist working at Gotham PD with a penchant for speaking in, um, cryptic language.
Oswald Cobblepot / The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor): The psychopathic umbrella-touting underling for crime boss Fish Mooney, who is full of secret ambitions.
Det. Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) Det. Gordon’s pragmatic, cynical partner.
Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith): A new character to this world — an underworld gangster, club owner and boss of Cobblepot.
Camren Bicondova (Gotham)
Ivy Pepper / Poison Ivy (Clare Foley): Not too much known about the Gotham version of her character yet. However, given demeanor, they may be giving her character the new origin established in the comics.
Det. James Gordon (Ben McKenzie): Idealistic new kid in town; a good cop saddled with a cynical partner who’s determined to play by the rules in a city that doesn’t have any.
Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz): Newly orphaned with enormous wealth, a 12-year-old seeking a new purpose for his life after witnessing his parent’s murder.
