After seeing the season preview for Gotham, I am more excited than ever. It seems that sooner, rather than later, a few new villains will make their presence known in Gotham City. In addition to Cobblepot, Nygma, and Kyle, some familiar faces will be popping up throughout Gotham’s freshman season. At the forefront of all this action looks to be a three-way turf war between Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith), Sal Maroni (David Zayas), and Carmine Falcone (John Doman). Before, it seemed as though the Mooney/Falcone plot would be more of a back story to the Gotham origins. This trailer clearly proves otherwise.
It’s almost an indisputable fact that Batman has the best rogues gallery. Gotham will seemingly be showcasing not only the main villains, but also some of the lesser known enemies of the Caped Crusader. It has already been confirmed by producers that Mr. Freeze, Harvey Dent, and Hugo Strange will be introduced somewhere down the line. Obviously Penguin is already starting to take shape.
Shown in the trailer, Mr. Zsasz will be hitting the screen with a bang. Entering the GCPD and calling out Gordon (Ben
Mckenzie) in a room full of cops is a pretty bold move. With a clean face, neck, and barely scarred arm, it would appear
that Zsasz has only begun his massacre of Gotham. Also shown briefly is someone in what looks like a burlap mask. One has to assume that it would be none other than an early version of Scarecrow. With Gotham showing so much love for villain origin stories, I think fans could keep this show going for a very long time.
In the final seconds of the trailer, Bullock (Donal Logue) is arguing with Gordon, gun pointed at him ready to fire. I’ve looked over a few comments and people are under the impression that Bullock and Gordon will be enemies moving forward. I can only speculate that something will happen that makes them both gain a deeper level of respect for each other. In Batman: The Animated Series, they aren’t the best of friends but you can certainly tell there is something they have more than a partnership.
Here is the trailer for your viewing pleasure.
