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.
