‘Gotham’ season 2 trailer teases the rise of villains

Fox has released a new promo for Gotham Season 2 which promises a “new era” filled with familiar and new villains. Centering on Ben McKenzie’s James Gordon and a young Bruce Wayne, played by David Mazouz, season one was presumably just a prelude to the back story of Batman’s rogue gallery of villains.

The new teaser is set to a cover of Duran Duran’s “Hungry Like the Wolf.” Check it out below.

The latest news is that Michael Chiklis (and former star of The Shield) would be joining the second season of the Fox series as the new Gotham City Police Department captain.

 Here is the official synopsis for Gotham: Rise of the Villains:

The good. The evil. The beginning. Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker? GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), GOTHAM follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.

The second season of Gotham will premiere on Fox on September 21st at 8:00pm.
