Meet young Detective James Gordon. The star of Gotham, Ben McKenzie, got his own character poster Wednesday afternoon from WBTV and Fox. The show centers around Gordon’s experience as a young detective at the GCPD, years before Bruce Wayne ever donned a cape and cowl.
The story, as revealed in interviews and set photos, begins with the day Bruce Wayne’s parents are murdered. The case of their deaths will be one of Gordon’s first. The series will also introduce future Batman “Rogues” like The Penguin and Catwoman as the city develops alongside its characters.
No additional character description was given for Gordon with his promo picture.
