This week's issue of Entertainment Weekly includes five new photos from the highly-anticipated Batman prequel series Gotham, which offers our first look at the massive Wayne Manor. The story takes place after the murder of young Bruce Wayne's (David Mazouz) parents, with rookie detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and his partner Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) trying to solve this grisly murder.
While we don't see any new images of David Mazouz as the future Batman, we do get a fresh look at Ben McKenzie in action as James Gordon, along with Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney, Robin Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin and Sean Pertwee as Bruce Wayne's trusted butler Alfred Pennyworth. Take a look at the images below, and stay tuned for more information regarding the show as we get closer to Comic-Con 2014, where the show will debut the pilot episode.
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.
