First a series order, then a trailer — Batman fans were treated to plenty of “Gotham”-related news on Monday.

Fox has released the first trailer for the upcoming “Gotham,” which stars Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon. The series serves as a prequel in the Batman lore.

The video gives a glimpse of McKenzie as Gordon, as well David Mazouz as a young Bruce Wayne. They interact in what appears to be the aftermath of the death of Wayne’s parents.

“I promise you, I will find the man who did this,” says McKenzie’s Gordon.

The cast also includes Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett Smith, David Mazouz, Robin Lord Taylor, Camren Bicondova, Erin Richards, Sean Pertwee, Zabryna Guevara and Cory Michael Smith. The pilot was written by executive producer Bruno Heller and directed by Danny Cannon.

The WBTV-produced series was unsurprisingly picked up for a series order, it was announced on Monday. It will premiere on Fox this fall.
