With Gotham on the brink of total anarchy and cut off from the outside world, only Jim Gordon, Bruce Wayne and a handful of heroes remain behind to retake the city. Inspired by the “No Man’s Land” arc from the comics, villains including Penguin, the Riddler, the Sirens and Jeremiah have taken claim on various regions of the city. Will order be restored, or will chaos reign in Gotham?

Gotham stars Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, and Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma.

Gotham season 5 will premiere on FOX in 2019.

    ug, why is the luchadores’ mask so difficult?

    so glad this show is ending, people are impressed by some of the villains performances, so am I, but overall wow, just wow.

    Im not a body builder, and even I can see batman should be a man, not batboy, the batman they are doing is better suited for night wing and that’s the issue with DC, they don’t give two S*&^%s about making the llive shows totally loyal. Which is why once again, the animation is the DCcore of its TV/movie entertainment.

    I like DC, so it sucks saying this, but I treat every show with an objective perspective because I know how it could be better.

    If these people involved who we knowingly know don’t have in depth knowledge about how to adapt these characters correctly cant listen to the fans, or pay respect to the stuff that belongs to us, because it does once it becomes public, it becomes everyones.

    I mean, look at micheal myers, a character who wears a mask and a freakin mechanics jumpsuit, and he gets more respect from genre fans than anything put out by marvel or DC, and sure it may get praise from the new aged fan boy, but those of us who have lived and breathed this stuff since we were kids in the late 80s and early to late 90s.

    I mean we know how we can see this stuff happen, and some us know how movies are made and understand how they work, from camera work to writing, to how a character arc works not just in conventional ways.

    And the luchador mask could work, you make banes eyes visable or have red glowing lenses, he would look menacing, and like the character is supposed to, say what you want about Batman and robin bane(which was bad yea) but they look, was right. You translate that to the modern day, man. Fans would flip.

    Again another example of Most studios not paying any respect to the lore.

    Because like it or not, the look of the characters is just as important as their race, name2, hair color, and overall essence and characterization.

    You don’t make batman without the ears and the batsuit, you just don’t. When you do it sucks, look at those lame moments in gotham, where it would be more effective to use the comic elements and actually be what its trying to be.

    Guess why Veterans of pop culture, look at wanna be’s with contempt, because its fake, non authentic, just trying to cash in.

    Star trek, Star wars, DC, Marvel in some places, all ignore the lore, then end up under the boot of fan criticism, when at least Halloween respects what came before it, Even John carpenter said, you never piss off fans of the original.
