The first trailer for Fox’s upcoming Batman prequel series Gotham made its debut Monday night during the premiere of 24: Live Another Day.
The show will see former O.C. star Benjamin McKenzie return to Fox as Gotham City Police Department Detective James Gordon, who’s tasked with solving the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. In turn, he finds himself spending a lot of time with their son (and witness) Bruce, who, of course, grows up to be Batman.
But in addition to explaining the beginnings of Batman, Gotham offers the origin stories of some classic DC Comics characters and villains. And it introduces some newbies too.
