Since the casting of Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon, the proposed Fox series Gotham has had me quietly intrigued and now it seems like they are really ramping it up with casting news.
What we know so far is that Selina Kyle aka Catwoman, Oswald Cobblepot aka The Penguin and Alfred Pennyworth has been cast.
I quite like the casting of Camren Bicondiva as Kyle, as she resembles a younger Michelle Pfeiffer who infamously portrayed the character in Batman Returns.
Also the casting of Robin Lord Taylor as Cobblepot just looks suave yet a bit demented which is surely the look they are going for. Portrayed as a small time gangster on the way up, he could be the dark horse for best character before a scene or trailer has even been shown.
The spotlight will of course be on McKenzie as the lead but strong support will be needed from these characters as well as others who will be announced as the show evolves, as Fox will look for similiar success to The CW’s Arrow, another DC export, with Gotham.
So let’s wait and see what the first trailer comes up with.
