Get some face time with the characters of Gotham in these new posters.

This fall, Fox is bringing a new entry to the Batman mythos with Gotham, a look at the city's early days before Bruce Wayne became Batman. Following the adventures of young Detective James Gordon, Gotham will feature a familiar cast of characters... in their younger years. And while we've seen glimpses of most of them before, today Fox released a set of character posters which gives us a look at both the heroes and villains.

And the look is a good one, with a dark and gloomy aesthetic that falls right in line with the recent Batman movie franchise. Gotham is introducing new character Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) as a gangster and Oswald Cobblepot's (that's the Penguin, played here by Robin Lord Taylor) boss, who makes a nice addition to the otherwise very pale-skinned cast. Another change is the name of the girl to become Poison Ivy: instead of being Pamela Isley, she's now Ivy Pepper, a name that would have fit better with 60's Batman than it does with Gotham's grittier aesthetic. That poor child -- with a name like that, she basically had to become a supervillain.
