We’re still a while off the premiere of brand new prequel show Gotham, but lucky viewers got to see the pilot episode at an exclusive screening with the cast and crew. So, what do we know about Gotham following this screening?
This Earth One inspired Alfred isn’t the only connection the comics, as Geoff Johns, DC comics writer and Chief Creative Officer at DC Entertainment has had a large hand in the making of the show, offering tips and advice to the cast and crew. In addition, it’s possible that the series may take influence from the Batman storyline “Zero Year”, which saw The Riddler isolate Gotham City from the rest of the world until someone could beat him in a riddle contest, as part of Edward Nygma/The Riddler’s storyline. Finally, two characters from “Gotham Central”, Renee Montoya and Crispus Allen, will be making appearances.
It’s still another two months until Gotham hits our screens, but reactions to the pilot have been fantastic. Here’s hoping for the best!
