We’ve seen Alfred Pennyworth and Harvey Bullock. Now, Warner Bros. TV has released the first image of Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon in Fox’s origin series “Gotham.”

The studio tweeted the image Wednesday, finally unveiling the look of the show’s central character. The series will follow Gordon in the Batman universe as he navigates dangerous crime, going up against super villains.

The cast also includes David Mazouz as a young Bruce Wayne, Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney, Robin Lord Taylor as the Penguin and Sean Pertwee as Pennyworth.

    Cop show or not, very excited to see Ben again. Hoping he’s got a really great character. Nice look here with nothing hyped or cartoonish. I didn’t know about Gotham’s universe, but I got a little worried from the old pics. This is much better and fits for the time and age. Ready for Ben’s A game in prime time this fall.

    I’m not any kind of super hero universe or genre fan, but I’ll definitely be watching for Ben. If this is a good role and project, he’ll definitely knock it out of the park. Looking forward to it! Also, I like that they’re going with a character and not a caricature or parody. After seeing images of a much older character, I was hoping that Ben’s Gordon would have a younger and individual look without all of the trappings and distractions. Phew!

    Reblogged this on The Artistic Packrat and commented:
    Doesn’t look awful or anything, but where is the Gordonstache? Are they purposefully not going with it for this version or will it be added later?

    I am excited for this series but am wary of it at the same time. The concept is interesting, but I don’t want it to fall into some of the same problems as “Smallville” did, ie bringing in characters and storylines that wouldn’t have been introduced into the universe that early in the characters’ lives (like Zod in “Smallville,” for example). Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

    Hopefully there are some black people in this show
