Gotham Central Part 5 – The Legend Reborn – Zero Year E14
Zero Year, Episode 14 of Gotham TV Podcast we talk about the 21 minute “The Legend Reborn” preview special from Gotham. The preview was released in conjunction with the Gotham season pass on iTunes and was also released in four parts on You Tube titled “Mythical Beginnings”, “A City on the Edge”, “Behind the Shadows” and “Heroes and Villains”. We also complete our five part review of the comic series Gotham Central by Ed Brubaker, Greg Rucka and Michael Lark, covering issues #28-40 which encompass the story arcs “Keystone Kops”, “Nature”, “Dead Robin”, “Sunday Bloody Sunday” and the bittersweet finale “Corrigan II”.
- In the build up to the premiere of Gotham a front page feature was published in SciFi Now magazine and Gotham is also featured in the SFX magazine. Both publications provide a lot of information that we have heard over recent months but also include some new bits of information. In particular, we hear from Bruno Heller that with the casting of David Mazouz as the young Bruce Wayne the role became a more central to the story of the TV series. It was also hinted that Gotham will also explore other vigilantes that may have existed before the Batman and which could have served as an inspiration and possible role model for the young Bruce Wayne.
- Another European broadcaster Canal Plus in Spain have announced that they will broadcast Gotham within one day of the US broadcast on the 23rd of September.While we know the show will air on Channel 5 in the UK we’ve yet to get a release date, but hopefully it won’t be far behind the 22nd September air date in North America on Fox in the USA and CTV in Canada.
- iTunes now allow you to subscribe to the full season of Gotham on their US and Canadian service. For US €29.99 or CAN €49.99 you get the full season of 16 episodes and a special exclusive behind the scenes video. In addition, iTunes have put up a complete 21 minute preview of the show called “The Legend Reborn”. This preview is split into four parts and has been released on YouTube. Watch all four parts of “The Legend Reborn” here.
As always thanks so much for listening and all your interactions over the last six months. We have just under three weeks left until Gotham launches in the USA and Canada so we’re working on a few surprises for our next podcast and we’ll let you know details as soon as we can.
