I admit, I was skeptical. A Batman-free Gotham, with younger versions of all of the main characters. Muppet Babies jokes abounded. The actor playing Gordon looked far too fresh faced.
And then this happened.
Yeah, I’m sold. This pretty much nails it, creating a world that I never thought I’d want to see, but that it turns out I’m now very interested in. The look is terrific (although for the love of god, let there be a sunny day once in a while), and the characters all are scary ringers for who they will eventually come to be (about Robin Lord Taylor — are we sure he’s not actually Oswald Cobblepot?), and it just feels good.
So yeah, I’m in.
