Fox has released a first official look at the young Catwoman in the Gotham TV series played by Camren Bicondova.
Here is Selina Kyle.
Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world's greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous withÂ law and order. But what is known of Gordon's story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What didÂ it takeÂ 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 â€“ the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker?Â
GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely newÂ chapterÂ that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (â€śTheÂ Mentalist,â€ť â€śRomeâ€ť), GOTHAM follows one cop's rise through a dangerously corrupt city teeteringÂ on the edgeÂ ofÂ evilÂ and chroniclesÂ the birth ofÂ one of theÂ most popularÂ super heroes of our time.Â
Growing up in Gotham City's surrounding suburbs, JAMES GORDON (Ben McKenzie, â€śSouthland,â€ť â€śThe O.C.â€ť) romanticized the city as a glamorous and exciting metropolisÂ whereÂ his late father once served as a successful districtÂ attorney. Now, two weeks into hisÂ new jobÂ as a Gotham City detective and engaged to his beloved fiancĂ©e, BARBARA KEAN (Erin Richards, â€śOpen Grave,â€ť â€śBreaking Inâ€ť), Gordon is living his dream â€“ even as he hopesÂ to restoreÂ the city back to the pure version he remembers it was as a kid.Â
Brave, honest and ready to proveÂ himself, the newly-minted detective is partnered with the brash, but shrewd police legend HARVEY BULLOCK (Donal Logue, â€śSons of Anarchy,â€ť â€śTerriers,â€ť â€śVikings,â€ť â€śCopperâ€ť), as the two stumble upon the city's highest-profile case ever: the murder ofÂ localÂ billionairesÂ Thomas and Martha Wayne. At the scene of the crime, Gordon meets the sole survivor: the Waynes' hauntingly intense 12-year-old son, BRUCE (David Mazouz, â€śTouchâ€ť), toward whom the young detective feels an inexplicable kinship. Moved by the boy's profound loss, Gordon vows to catch the killer.Â
As he navigates the often-underhanded politics of Gotham'sÂ criminalÂ justiceÂ system, Gordon will confront imposing gang boss FISH MOONEY (Jada Pinkett Smith, â€śThe Matrixâ€ť films, â€śHawthoRNe,â€ť â€śCollateralâ€ť), and many of the characters who will become some of fiction's most renowned, enduring villains, including a teenaged SELINA KYLE/theÂ futureÂ CATWOMAN (acting newcomer Camren Bicondova) and OSWALD COBBLEPOT/THE PENGUIN (RobinÂ Lord Taylor, â€śThe Walking Dead,â€ť â€śAnother Earthâ€ť).Â
AlthoughÂ the crime drama will follow Gordon's turbulent and singular rise through the Gotham City police department, led by Police Captain SARAH ESSEN (Zabryna Guevara, â€śBurn Noticeâ€ť), it also will focus on the unlikely friendship Gordon forms with the youngÂ heir to theÂ Wayne fortune, who is being raised by his unflappable butler, ALFRED (Sean Pertwee, â€śCamelot,â€ť â€śElementaryâ€ť). It is a friendship that will last them all of their lives, playing a crucial role in helping the young boy eventually become the crusader he's destined to be.
GOTHAM is based upon characters published by DC Comics and is produced byÂ Warner Bros. Television. Executive producer Bruno Heller (â€śTheÂ Mentalistâ€ť) wrote theÂ pilot, which will be directed and executive-produced by Emmy Award nominee Danny Cannon (the â€śCSIâ€ť series, â€śNikitaâ€ť).Â
