The villains are prominently featured in this Gotham season 2 trailer, the first for the season. And apparently, that’s what the season may be all about as the subtitle is displayed – “Rise of the Villains”
We’ll be introduced to new villains as well as recurring ones as the city goes darker still and evil overtakes Gotham like a flood and Jim Gordon still tries to fight the good fight, without the caped crusader.
The good. The evil. The beginning.
Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker?
GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), GOTHAM follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.
And as a side note: Being a big Duran Duran fan and thus a fan of the song, I find the Epic Trailer Version of “Hungry Like the Wolf” by Hidden Citizens feat. Tim Halperin was a nice fit for this trailer.
