Here we at another episode of Gotham, last week was a rather interesting episode because there was a man killing corrupt cops because someone needed to and he didn’t trust the system. I find it interesting how many of the people in Gotham know that Gordon is a good guy.
Howdy, nerds. PattyinRealLife here filling in for ChristenaGarcia this week, bringing you a recap of last night’s episode.
Let’s just jump right in.
Last week ended on a bit of a cliffhanger.
Last night’s episode opens with Penguin’s return to Gotham, heralded by a series of petty thefts just within his own line of sight, and a story being broadcast on the news about
Bernie Madoff a fellow named Danzer who is charged with a massive Ponzi scheme.
Enter: The Balloonman.
Fox’s “Gotham” is already moving forward with plans for its second season, adding another future villain to its cast.
Nicholas D’Agosto (Masters of Sex) has signed on to play Harvey Dent. Although D’Agosto looks very young, he is in his mid-30s, so it appears that he’ll be a contemporary of Jim Gordon’s rather than young Bruce Wayne.
How exactly they’re going to play that remains to be seen. Personally, I’ll be eagerly anticipating all of the double entendres that will henceforth and forevermore be slipped into the dialogue whenever he’s around.
Here we are at the second of Gotham, but I enjoyed the first episode it was great to get a feel for the characters and to meet most of the main players. The Penguin betrayed Fish who betrayed Falcone, Gordon “shot” The Penguin. Bullock is a dirty cop and a drunk but we already knew that. The Wayne’s were killed and Gordon plans on doing everything to bring their killer to justice.
Here is it the series premiere of Gotham which we have all been waiting for, well I know I have. I am super excited for this, I am hoping they don’t disappoint.
I know we are all very excited for the new Gotham show, I bet we all have things that we would like to see happen. I wanted to go over the list of some of what I would like to see happen over the series, not just the first season because we all know that this will be the set up season for the show.
There is a first look trailer out for Gotham, where they give us some more footage of the show but also explain more about it.
I will say this, every trailer or video I see for the show looks amazing so I am really hoping that the show looks like this for real and that its not just some amazing editing job. Here are somethings that they went over in this video that I really like.
- I like the fact that the show will be more of a detective show then another comic show. I like this because I feel like they can do more with the show if they focus on that element and just make sure to make the DC characters the main cast. What I think people forget sometimes is that a lot happens in Gotham; drug deals, murder, rape, muggings, poverty, etc. Everyone gets focused on the villains that they forget there are other aspects of the city that Batman fights. If they focus on that then we will really get to see the destruction and corruption of this city and why Batman is needed. I am sure that all the other gritty aspects of Gotham are what caused the villains to become who they are. I think making this a detective drama and using the characters that we know and love as the main cast is the right idea. This way we can see how they become who they are and why Gotham is so bad.
- I also like how they mention more of the villains that have yet to be cast, that tells us they have plans for them and that we will be seeing more villains throughout the show. I guess right now they are seeing how the show does and if it does well then they will be adding more. I am looking forward to seeing more of the villains pop up.
- I am intrigued to learn more about Gordon, since he really is the main focus. We all know Batman’s story, we have read it and seen it a millions times. We really don’t know Gordon’s, so I have been enjoying seeing all of his scenes. He looks like an interesting character that it will be great to see how he becomes the police commission and how he manages to keep is good heart and undying belief in the city.
I think if they writers and creators keep going the way that they are this show could do really well. It already has an amazing following just from DC alone. Everyone knows that Batman is the bread and butter of the DC universe. It was smart for the show to include little Bruce Wayne as a cast member. I think this show has a lot of potential to do really well.
What did you like about this video? What are you looking forward to the most?
In honors of Father’s Day, the ladies of the TFP wanted to spotlight some of our favorite dads in the DC and Marvel Universe.
News hit a few days back that “Batman: Arkham Knight,” the fourth (console) installment of the stellar Arkham games, had its release date pushed back to early next year. Well, if the following trailer is any indication, this baby is going to be well worth the wait!
Warner Brothers has released the official title to the Man of Steel sequel, the film fans have been calling Batman vs Superman. The official title is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This does confirm the that movie will be a Batman against Superman. Not sure how Wonder Woman is supposed to fit into this, but maybe she stops the fight.
This movie will serve as the prequel to Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Justice League which is anticipated to be released in 2018.
Well we all knew they were trying to lead up to a Justice League movie, but I am not sure this is the proper way to go. The title Dawn of Justice does give us some idea of where they might be going with the movie. With any luck it will emphasis the different approaches that Batman and Superman have when it comes to justice. The end of the movie should highlight the similarities that they have when it comes to justice which would explain the creation of the Justice League. Since the movie is only showcasing a Superman villain as far as we know, Bruce Wayne is probably going to have some business dealings with Lex Luthor. Since we all know Luthor is shady, it would not be surprising to see Batman investigate Luthor and thus run into Superman. Doing it that way would be a great way to highlight the differences between Batman and Superman. I guess we are just going to have to wait and see.
What are your speculations about the movie?
