Gotham: welcome back to the cursed capital of crime
With Zack Snyder already promoting his Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice on social media, Fox has given its primetime spot for the fall season to Gotham. Here is a preview on the series telling you what you can expect from it.tv Updated: Jun 05, 2014 14:56 IST
There are good times ahead for Batman fans. One of the comic world's most-admired superhero is returning to small and big screens, as well as the gaming arena.
Rumour has it that we may also get to see a lot of the Joker, Batman's arch nemesis and worst nightmare. Perhaps, we'll finally get to know how he got those scars.
This version is sans VFX and has a more realistic adaptation of Batman's story. In one of the few experiments of its kind in the comic world, the superhero is not the protagonist. The reactions on the choice of the central character and this bold experiment have been interesting.
While American stand-up Jimmy Kimmel joked, "This is a show for people who love everything about Batman except Batman," the 7.5 million trailer views tell their own story.
Snyder posted the first glimpses of the Batmobile and Ben Affleck in his Batman avatar and they have elicited mixed reactions. There have been critical comments in the social media on Ben Affleck being chosen as the next Batman. Fans are unsure about choice of love-hate relationship between Batman and Superman as the subject of the next film.
Gotham, on the other hand, has got praise for its subtle method of production and a divergent take on the legendary comics.
The battle of superheroes is poised to begin and we will be waiting to see who takes home the spoils. But one thing is for sure: it's the audience which is in a win-win situation.
