There is a new face in Gotham's criminal underworld.

The series will look at the seedy, corrupt and chaotic early years of Gotham city before the arrival of the Batman - and we now know one of its major villains: sadistic female gangster, nightclub owner and Oswald Cobblepot's boss, Fish Mooney.

Fish Mooney will be played by The Matrix Reloaded's Jada Pinkett Smith and the character has been described as someone with "the street smarts and almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book... she's not one to be crossed."

The Penguin has been imagined as a nightclub owner before, and with Donal Logue having been cast as Harvey Bullock - the grizzled mentor of young detective Jim Gordon (Ben Mckenzie) - it seems that we might see quite a few of the better known characters doing their apprenticeships in crime or crime fighting. The name of the nightclub has not been revealed, but Cobblepot will surely be pushing for The Iceberg Lounge.

But what do you think? Would you rather see an unknown villain than an established name? Do you think they book any comedians at that nightclub? Write in with your speculations and reactions below.
