Fox Debuts Trailer for Batman Prequel Series “Gotham”

Say hello to your new favorite show.

During last night’s premiere of 24: Live Another Day, Fox teased viewers with an extended trailer for the network’s forthcoming Batman prequel series, Gotham. Starring Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon and child actor David Mazouz as a young Bruce Wayne, Gotham offers a glimpse into Batman’s beginnings, and focuses on Gordon’s position within Gotham City before Wayne’s rise to greatness. And the two-minute preview seems to support the idea that Gotham will be a dark and tortured series – in the best possible way. While an official air date has yet to be announced, we’re looking forward to delving into this one. Watch the teaser above.
