“The Dark Knight Rises Review” – Zero Year Episode 9
Season: ZeroYear [S00.1]
Derek and John return for Zero Year, Episode 9 of Gotham TV Podcast, with a full detailed discussion of The Dark Knight Rises, the third and final installment in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy. Starring Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle aka Catwoman and Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon. The Dark Knight Rises charts the rise of a terrorist threat to Gotham and its inhabitants. Bane, backed by a darker and more secretive organisation, seeks to destroy Gotham and the Batman. In order to prevent the annihilation of Gotham, the Batman must overcome his own demons about the death of Harvey Dent/Two Face and be reborn as Gotham’s protector for one final time.
⦁ Many of the cast have confirmed on Twitter that they are returning to work to begin recording the rest of the series for Fox. With Donal Logue (Harvey Bullock), Victoria Cartagena (Renee Montoya), Andrew Stewart-Jones (Crispus Allen) and Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald Cobblepot) all confirming they’re in New York this week 20th June 2014. This is a bit earlier than expected so hopefully it means some new footage in time for San Diego Comic Con.
⦁ Victoria Catagena has confirmed that she’s reading up on Gotham Central in order to prep for her role in Gotham. Following Ben McKenzie and Bruno Heller she’s the third member of the team to confirm the show is taking from the highly acclaimed series we talked about in Episode 4 and Episode 5. We will be returning to cover the rest of the arc from our next show.
⦁ In an interview with Hitfix Danny Cannon (Not Bruno Heller as Derek says in the Podcast) has said that he’d love to incorporate the Origins of Mr. Freeze into Gotham. Given how they use the character in Gotham Central and the numerous origins for him over the years we’re sure it would be a great fit.
⦁ Rumours appeared on the internet this week claiming to be from Fox that Gotham has been canceled. The original report came from a “Create your own headline” Site on the internet called Sunday Times Daily or STD. It seems to have gained some traction but given all the positive feedback on the the pilot from people who’ve seen the show it had no basis in fact.
⦁ Two slightly different Pilot trailers were released one by Canadian Broadcaster CTV who will broadcast the show this Fall. Not much new footage and the original Fox cut was better. A short teaser was released of the villains showing Selina, Oswald and Fish Mooney’s parts and saying they only got this way because of the city their from.
⦁ Australian Broadcaster Nine Network were confirmed to have bought broadcast rights for Gotham. So great news for our Aussie listeners. We’re still waiting on a broadcast confirmed for Europe.
⦁ *Breaking News* Former Angel, Firefly and Supernatural alum Ben Edlund has joined the team of Gotham for the first season.
⦁ *Breaking News* TV Director TJ Scott is set to direct episodes 4 and 6 of Season 1 of Gotham. Mr. Scott most recently worked on Orphan Black but his work can also be seen on Spartacus and Black Sails
