"Gotham" has a new villain coming to the city to challenge Jim Gordon, and it's one of Batman's longtime foes. Victor Zsasz will play a role over the course of the first season of the freshman before-Batman series, as indicated in a trailer recently released by FOX. Clocking in at over two minutes, the new footage shows what the plan could be for the show across the course of the whole season -- not just upcoming episodes.
In addition to Zsasz, new details were revealed about the ruthlessness of Oswald Cobblepot, the drive of a young Bruce Wayne, the machinations of Fish Mooney, plans to tear down Arkham Asylum and turn it into "Arkham City," the Falcone/Maroni rivalry and -- of course -- Jim Gordon's continuing crusade to bring justice to Gotham City. There may even be a few other indications of some pre-Batman villains beginning to burgeon.
"Gotham" airs Mondays on FOX.
