New Teaser And Character Posters For GOTHAM Play Up The Villains’ Origin Stories

by

gothamA teaser poster and a new set of character posters for Fox‘s pre-Batman series, Gotham, have hit the web. Keeping in line with the previous trailers and teaser spots for the highly-anticipated show, the posters are playing up the fact that we’re going to be seeing the origins of some of Batman‘s most notorious foes. Things are going to be somewhat dark and gritty before we see Bruce Wayne take on the his destiny as the city’s protector, and these posters show that perfectly.

Bleeding Cool got their hands on a nice scan of a teaser poster appearing in DC Comics today, and its interesting tagline of “The Origin Stories Begin In Gotham.” In a stroke of perfect timing, EW have posted eight character posters. While we’ve seen the images used for some of them before, we do get a brand new look at Care Foley as Ivy Pepper/Poison Ivy. What do you think about the new batch of posters?

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take 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 – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker?
