Check out eight character posters for FOX's upcoming series Gotham

Jun. 25, 2014by:

As the summer movie season chugs along, many are already looking forward to the return of their favorite television series this fall. With ARROW and AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. proving that comic books can make for good small screen entertainment, there will be some news shows joining the fray including THE FLASH and Marvel's AGENT CARTER. Possibly the most exciting of the bunch is FOX's Batman origin series GOTHAM.

Harkening back to the very beginning of Bruce Wayne's tale, GOTHAM will focus on Detective James Gordon as he investigates crime in Gotham City. Promising the origins of villains like The Penguin, The Riddler, Poison Ivy, and more, GOTHAM could be really cool or an failed experiment. But if one thing is for sure, it looks dark and gritty just the way a Batman series should be.

Entertainment Weekly has revealed eight new character posters for the series bearing the tagline "The Good. The Evil. The Beginning." Most of these are images we have seen before, but we now have better looks at Poison Ivy as a child as well as Edward Nygma. Showrunner Bruno Heller has teased the idea in the past of bringing The Joker on in the future and now there are rumblings that Mr. Freeze may appear as well.

I am excited to see if GOTHAM can live up to it's potential. It all will depend on the pilot and whether the actors can play the characters as well as they resemble them. Here's hoping we get new footage at Comic Con.

GOTHAM premieres this Fall on FOX.

What's wrong with 'Pamela Isley'?

I can see why they want her to be called Ivy, but why not at least give her a proper surname? Call her at least 'Ivy Isley', doesn't sound that good neither, but still better than Pepper...ugh.

Beside that, I am looking very much forward to this show!

Isn't Gordon older than Harvey though?

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't detective Gordon older than Harvey bullock? I've seen it in the cartoons and comics.

"Ivy Pepper"? Edward Nygma looks suspiciously like Jim Carrey's Edward Nygma. So far the best looking is Oswald Cobblepot.

Why does Nygma look like he just ripped a fart?

I'm gonna echo everyone else, throw my hands in the air and ask: why couldn't they just call her "Pamela Isley"?

Really liking how Cobblepot, Nygma and Baby Catwoman are looking so far, those feel right.

No thanks

Why the heck did they change they changes Poison Ivy's name? Pamela Isley sounds a lot less laughable than Oswald Cobblepot or Edward Nygma. I'm going to guess that 1) That terrible leaked report from earlier in the year is true (everything we've heard so far has matched up) and the writing is going to be abysmal. 2) Whether it's good or not, the show will be like Arrow in that it will be a Batman show in name only, with virtually no attempt made to follow the source material or make the

I understand a lot of people love Arrow, but that show seriously bears almost no resemblance to its source material whatsoever.

Obviously because she will never be Poison Ivy and the vast majority of the people watching will not know who Pamela Isley is supposed to be. Seriously, the last live action portrayal of Poison Ivy was in Batman & Robin back in 1997 which I think we all agree was the worst Batman movie, not including the 1966 movie. I think the Nolan triology was better than the original series. Seriously, if you watch the 1989 Batman after watching Batman Begins you might be confused as to whether Bruce's

It looks like an interesting take

I'm excited to see this despite the minor (major to some) changes that have been made for the small screen. It has potential to be very good. I know some are concerned about the villians' ages but it always seemed to me that several of Batman's rogues were older then him anyway. The only problem I have is the Joker, unless they do a Red Hood or something before the accident/paint, I would be uncomfortable with it.

Ivy Pepper??? C'mon guys. Its Pamela Isley. If your going to change her name (which is completely unnecessary) don't change it to something so stupid

Why the hell did they change Poison Ivy's given name? Ivy Pepper sounds like a garnish you put on eggs.
