A brand new still from the set of [Gotham](series:1127075) of Ben MacKenzie as an un-mustachio'd and young Jim Gordon has surfaced, showing him looking pensive in a graveyard. The premise of this scene isn't a stretch for any Batfan: it's easy to assume that Gordon is in attendance of the Wayne funeral. The shot itself is practically pulled from the panels of the comics, where Jim Gordon watches a grieving Bruce Wayne as the boy stands next to his parents' tombstones.
That said, Mackenzie had a few words to offer today on the type of man this particular Gordon will be:
He’s a truly honest man. The last honest man in a city full of crooked people. It’s very tricky nowadays to play a true, honest-to-goodness hero. Everybody is so cynical of people’s intentions. What’s interesting about him is he comes into this city that he hasn’t lived in for two decades, since he was a kid, and has fresh eyes to a world he doesn’t actually know. He thinks he knows it, and his journey will be to figure out how to make it better both for Gotham and himself without completely [losing] the moral standing that he has. He’s not an anti-hero, he’s a true hero — but he will have to compromise.
With this GCPD-focused series focusing on how the crime-ridden Gotham came to be, what do you expect to see, and which villain (or vigliante) are you most excited to find out more about?
