Before Batman Began: Gotham Trailer Drops


We had our doubts. Origin stories are getting old fast, Smallville – which followed a similar path in tracking the development of a superhero before they put on their costume – was, by and large, terrible, and a television budget might not be enough to sate Batman fans used to Christopher Nolan’s big screen interpretation. But then we saw this thing, and we’re pretty impressed.

The tone is brooding, the design choices are spot on and the cast is great – Ben McKenzie makes a good Jim Gordon, Donal Logue has never been less than engaging and we’re tickled by the idea of the ultra-tough Sean Pertwee as Alfred the butler. Still, there are built in limitations that are going to make this project hard to sustain in the long term. What do you guys think?
