Other than Christopher Nolan‘s Batman Trilogy and the recent Wonder Woman film, DC has struggled to find their feet on the big screen. Films like Batman V. Superman, and The Justice League have definitely not met studio (or fan) expectations. Each Marvel film seems to have a bigger following than previous films while DC films seem to get more complaints. The discussion on Marvel films is the meaning and characters, while discussion of DC films is about their failures. But one area that DC has not only done well but has full saturation is TV. There are many live-action DC shows on TV now with more on the way. (more…)
Bruce Wayne still has some training to do on his path to becoming the Dark Knight so it’s a good thing FOX has decided to renew the series for its fourth season. The announcement came last night as many of the major networks finally let the public know which of their favorite shows were getting the axe and which were going to continue. Gotham is nearing the end of its third season with only five episodes to go so the news of the renewal comes at just the right time to ensure fans won’t be left with a series cliffhanger (something FOX is notorious for doing with their series).
If you’ve been wondering why Wonder Woman, the forth coming Warner Bros. movie featuring not only the 75 year old character’s first big screen solo effort but also arguably the biggest female lead superhero film ever (sorry 2005’s Elektra,) seems to be a little light in the promotional department well you are not alone. It really does feel like the film is getting less attention marketing wise than the previous DCEU outing, the much loved and maligned Suicide Squad, or even Justice League which doesn’t come out till this November.
Well, with a little over a month away till the Themyscira Princess’ movie hits theatres, the latest episode of FOX’s Gotham dropped a new TV spot for the film. (more…)
Do you want to visit Gotham city? The dark, twisted labyrinth of grime and sin, home to an army of psychotic villains and cut-throats? If so, you might be in desperate need of psychotherapy but, thanks to a new deal struck by Warner Bros. and Abu Dhabi’s Miral, you might also be in luck. Abu Dhabi has always been a city obsessed with racing towards world firsts, even when no one else is running (world’s furthest leaning man-made tower, anyone?) Now, they’re about to become the first city to have a recreation of Batman’s hometown and for those who can afford the flight, this could be a childhood dream come true. (more…)
In the world of Gotham, they are the prototypical dynamic duo. David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee were the first celebrity guest panel on Saturday at Toronto ComiCon, and the pair got to be significantly more light-hearted then they’re allowed to be on their TV show. Mazouz gave a hearty “Hello. Toronto,” far from being the broody pre-Batman Bruce Wayne, as he and Pertwee dug in and answered questions about the show and offered a couple of hints about what’s to come as season three draws to a close.

Alexander Siddig is about to add another nerdy franchise to his acting belt as he has been cast to play Ra’s Al Ghul in Gotham. Best known for his role as Julian Bashir on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and lately as Doran Martell on Game of Thrones, Siddig is a fantastic choice for Batman’s greatest enemy/frenemy that keeps coming back thanks to the Lazarus Pit. Check out the casting announcement below. (more…)
Cameron Monaghan, who plays Jerome Valeska in the Gotham series, just posted a photo of himself looking like a ‘certain someone’ on Twitter and the internet can’t stop talking about it. The actor shared an image of himself online looking eerily similar to the Joker, before the photo was deleted only a few hours later. The Joker has yet to appear officially in the series, though fans have been teased by the Joker-like mannerisms of Jerome throughout it, although in a bizarre twist, he was later supposedly killed off. However, his upcoming return to the show has been teased heavily too, but now the big question is: who exactly will he be returning as? (more…)
It was already announced that is season three of Gotham, there would be some changes to the character of Poison Ivy. First and foremost, the young actress who played the Ivy, Clare Foley would be recast with an actress, Maggie Geha. Last night on Gotham seemed to start that process for the audience. (more…)
One of the more memorable villains of Gotham was Jerome. He captured many of The Joker’s mannerisms and displayed psychosis very well on the show. The producers threw us a major curveball when they actually killed the character as he was made a sacrificial lamb for Theo Galavan’s rise to power. Jerome’s impact was made though as his psychosis seemed to infect people on many of its citizens. This led many people to believe that whoever the “real” Joker is, will be inspired by Jerome. However, with the release of the inmates from Indian Hill, we heard Jerome’s infectious laugh signifying that he is one of those who escaped and now at large.
Pretty much on most network television channels (and some streaming) we have a superhero show. ABC Television has Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and previously had Agent Carter, shows tied into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Netflix has been churning out shows (and will continue ever six months going forward) like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders. Syfy is developing a superman spin-off titled Krypton. Freeform is developing a Cloak and Dagger show which will also be affiliated with the MCU. Hulu Prime is developing Runaways after the famous Marvel series. Of course, The CW has a superhero show on almost every night of the week with Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow. Last but not least, Fox has Gotham based on characters from Batman and features many DC Comics characters.
