The two advertising banners, which trumpet the Sept. 21 season premiere, are accompanied by a new tagline: "A Dark Knight, seemingly signifying the beginning of the transformation of teenage Bruce into the crime-fighter he'll eventually become.

The first promo depicts Ben McKenzie's James Gordon standing with David Mazouz's Bruce Wayne, whose coat flutters cape-like in the breeze, and breaks off into flying bats. The second ad shows a closeup of Bruce wearing a very Batman-esque cowl, suggesting he may don some version of the mask in the upcoming season.
