Commissioner Gordon is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. His work alongside Batman is well-documented in television and cinematic history. But what do you know about Gordon’s backstory and his rise from rookie detective to police commissioner? What did it take to navigate the layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground for many of the world’s most iconic villains? What were the circumstances that lead to the creation of these larger-than-life personas, who would go on to become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Ridder, The Joker, and Two-Face?
The original story behind the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes continues in Gotham S2, but now the stakes are higher than ever. A new cast of super villains are introduced, who are even more ambitious and depraved than their predecessors. Alliances are both broken and made, shaking up the fight for power in gloomy Gotham City.
With Detective Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie, The O.C.) and the ethically questionable veteran Detective Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue, Sons of Anarchy) at the forefront of the fight against crime, the biggest question of all is whether Gordon’s moral compass will begin to waver as he confronts Gotham’s most notorious criminals.
You can catch the premiere of Gotham S2 on September 28th at 6:50pm. Tune into Channel 37/Warner TV.
