'Gotham' releases 21-minute look inside the new series

Posted on


Fans know that Gotham is described as a Batman prequel, but what does that really mean? Well, in a new 21-minute video, the creators and actors behind the show sat down to talk about everything a “prequel” entails, from individual villain origin stories to the pressures that come with taking on iconic roles.

Watch as Jada Pinkett Smith introduces the new character of Fish Mooney, Ben McKenzie talks about playing a young Jim Gordon, and executive producer Danny Cannon poses the question at the center of it all: “Who are the supervillains in the city and how did they become that way?”

Gotham premieres Monday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
