Derek and John return for Zero Year, Episode 7 of Gotham TV Podcast, with a full and detailed discussion of Batman Begins, the first installment in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy. Starring Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman and set against the backdrop of an organised menace with plans for the City of Gotham; Batman Begins looks at the origins of Batman and the reasons why Bruce Wayne takes up the mantle of Batman to defend Gotham and his family’s legacy. This our most detailed discussion yet for one of the most influential Superhero franchise films of all time.
We begin by discussing some of the news that has come out since the last episode and discuss some of the great feedback and comments we have received from you wonderful listeners this week.
⦁ From Zack Snyder’s Twitter feed we saw our first official image of Batman V Superman : Dawn of Justice in the form of Ben Affleck as Batman with the Bat-mobile was released. The new Batman really looks like Frank Millers version of the Dark Knight in the Dark Knight Returns Graphic Novel and we talk ALL about it.
⦁ With confirmation of the Gotham TV Series Pick up and broadcast day a full cast photo was also released. The Gotham TV show will air on Mondays at 8pm on Fox in the USA, We also have confirmation of at least 16 episodes for Season One of Gotham with rumours of up to 22 episodes.
⦁ We also received excellent news that Victoria Cartagena as Renee Montoya, Cory-Michael Smith as Edward Nygma and Anthony Stewart Jones as Crispus Allen will be series regulars for Season one. If you’ve heard our Gotham Central reviews you know how delighted we are about Renee and Crispus being added to the regular cast and Edward Nygma is one of the most interesting characters in the DC universe.
⦁ In the Gotham TV series “First Look” Bruno Heller, Danny Cannon and member s of the cast provide insights in to the show and state “You won’t want to miss an episode because it might be the introduction to the Joker”. “We may show you why the Scarecrow becomes the Scarecrow”. We also discuss the Entertainment Weekly interview by James Hibberd with Gotham show runner Bruno Heller.
