FOX has signed Ben McKenzie (Southland) to play the young Jim Gordon in their new series Gotham. McKenzie previously voiced Batman in the Batman: Year One animated film.
Danny Cannon (Judge Dredd) will direct the Gotham pilot. The show will focus on the years before Bruce Wayne became Batman. There are also rumors that we will see pre-super villain versions of the Riddler and the Penguin in the series.
We’ll keep you posted as more details surface about the new series!
