Here’s what we know about Gotham, DC’s answer to Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, built around James Gordon’s character. It was penned by Bruno Heller (The Mentalist), who will co-produce the show along with director director Danny Cannon (Nikita). Gotham has been ordered straight to series, and is expected to air on Fox this September.

This is the cast, so far. It’s basically Ben McKenzie and a bunch of who?

Ben McKenzie as James Gordon.


Robin Lord Taylor, as Oswald Cobblepot aka The Penguin.


Sean Pertwee, as Alfred Pennyworth.


Zabryna Guevara, as Captain Essen, James Gordon’s boss at the GCPD Homicide Squad.


Erin Richards, as James’ fiancée, Barbara Kean.
