This past weekend, we were blindsided to learn that FOX's forthcoming Batman prequel TV series, 'Gotham,' cast 'Southland' and 'The O.C.' star Ben McKenzie in the central role of Detective Jim Gordon, but now the new DC drama unveiled an even plumper portion of casting. Meet your new Oswald "The Penguin" Cobblepot, as well as young Bruce Wayne's loyal Alfred, Captain Essen, and Gordon's fiancée Barbara!
After a vast amount of rumors circled as to who could be the villain in the highly anticipated 'Batman vs. Superman' movie, Warner Bros. finally made the big reveal today by announcing Jesse Eisenberg of 'The Social Network' fame in the role of iconic Superman nemesis Lex Luthor. But that's not all! Jeremy Irons also joins the cast as the new Alfred, Bruce Wayne's famous butler.
The announcement of FOX's Batman-adjacent 'Gotham' TV series proved a mostly-welcome surprise, though few details beyond Commissioner Gordon's central role emerged at the time. That all changes today, as we know how and when Bruce Wayne will finally don his cape, and which major Batman villains will suit up over the course of the series!
So far we've heard criminally little of FOX's surprise 'Gotham' TV series, centering its story on the detective career of a pre-Batman Commissioner Gordon, but apart from a few recent rumors, it seems the buzzworthy pilot at least has a respectable director. 'CSI' vet Danny Cannon will helm the inaugural installment of 'Gotham,' while a new report suggests a young Bruce Wayne's inclusion in the series may not come to pass.
Wow, people are upset that Ben Affleck is going to be the next Batman. Like, really upset. It's almost like this somehow simultaneously affects them personally (it doesn't), and they have nothing else in their lives to worry about (we're jealous). They may be upset about it, but at least some folks have a sense of humor about it. Here are some choice tweets on the subject.
