It’s pretty safe to say that FOX’s forthcoming Batman prequel series, ‘Gotham,’ has let out a bit of the air behind its biggest character reveals, even if the latest might be our most important yet. Meet ‘The O.C.’ and ‘Southland‘ star Ben McKenzie as young Detective James Gordon in the first official shot of the character from FOX’s ‘Gotham’!

Truth be told, anyone following FOX’s ‘Gotham’ well knows that McKenzie was actually the first to pop up in leaked set photos, and even with the official reveal, there isn’t much more to see than a man in a suit. No mustache or glasses just yet, but, hey, they’ve got to save something for season 7 sweeps, right?

Elsewhere, we’ve already seen first official looks at Robin Taylor’s Oswald Cobblepot, Sean Pertwee’s Alfred Pennyworth, Camren Bicondova’s Selina Kyle and Donal Logue’s Detective Harvey Bullock. Someday soon, we can likely expect Jada Pinkett Smith’s Fish Mooney and an official glimpse of David Mazouz as young Bruce Wayne, who himself has also already popped up on set.

FOX’s ‘Gotham’ will explore “the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham famous,” with its pilot featuring Gordon’s investigation of the murders of Thomas and Martha Wayne. The pilot will also be written and executive produced by ‘The Mentalist”s Bruno Heller, along with Warner Bros. Television, and directed by ‘Judge Dredd’ helmer Danny Cannon. It has been confirmed that ‘Gotham’ will not have any direct ties to Ben Affleck‘s take on the Dark Knight for ‘Man of Steel’ follow-up film ‘Batman vs. Superman‘ or The CW’s ‘Arrow‘ series.

Cast in other known roles thus far are Drew Powell as Mooney’s other associate Butch Gilzean, ‘Burn Notice‘ star Zabryna Guevara as Gordon’s GCPD boss Captain Essen, and Erin Richards as Gordon’s fiancée Barbara Kean.

Well, what do we think? Take a look at our future Commissioner Gordon in the first ‘Gotham’ photo of Ben McKenzie below, and tell us what you think of the new FOX drama thus far in the comments!
