A cat, a penguin and a fish walk into a bar. No, it’s not the setup of a bad joke, it’s the lineup of the new villains to hit upcoming Fox drama Gotham. The series will follow a young Commissioner Jim Gordon (played by
Ryan Atwood Ben McKenzie) as he attempts to clean up the streets of Gotham City – and the series’ new teaser trailer showcases who some of the bad guys will be.
The trailer introduces a Gotham’s most up-and-coming criminals: a young Selina Kyle (the future Catwoman), low-level thug Oswald Cobblepot (future Penguin) and businesswoman Fish Mooney. Played by Jada Pinkett Smith, we’re not really sure who Fish Mooney is just yet – we’re told she’s a completely original character, a “sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner” with “almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book.” Of course, that doesn’t mean she won’t end up being based on a classic DC villain – you never know.
