Earlier this week, we reported that Fox will be handing out copies of the fictional newspaper Gotham Chronicle as a tie-in to their highly-anticipated series Gotham. The network is continuing their viral marketing push with a new promo that asks fans to "report crimes" they may see being committed by Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) to the website GothamChronicle.com. Take a look at the promo, then read on for more information regarding this hit series.
Along with the Gotham Chronicle being passed out to fans at Comic-Con, fans will also be able to ride in special Uber "police cars" where they can watch exclusive footage from the show. There will also be a Gotham zip line set up between the Hilton Bayfront and the San Diego Convention Center for fans to try out throughout the Con. Tomorrow night, Warner Bros. and Fox will host the world premiere of the show's pilot episode at their three-hour panel on Saturday, July 26 from 8 PM to 11 PM in Hall H.
Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world's greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon's story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world's most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them - the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker?
Gotham is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome), Gotham follows one cop's rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.
