What happened before Batman began?
That's the question that Fox will attempt to answer this fall, as the network has given the green light to Gotham, a unique drama the network teases as "an origin story of the great DC Comics super-villains and vigilantes."
It will star Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon; Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock; Jada Pinkett Smith as crime boss Fish Mooney; and David Mazouz as a young Bruce Wayne.
We'll also meet young versions of characters who will go on to become The Penguin, Catwoman and The Riddler.
Pretty cool concept, no? Check out the very first trailer for Gotham now:
