Interview: Ben McKenzie on Jim Gordon and Season 1 of “Gotham”


In tonight’s episode “Lovecraft”, we reach the winter finale and revisit what happened to Martha and Thomas Wayne when they were murdered which launched the series back in the pilot. We also learn from the official synopsis that following a misstep, Gordon is reassigned to duty at Arkham Asylum while Selina leads a friend, presumably Bruce, through Gotham on what proves to be a dangerous adventure trying to keep killer assassins at bay.

Recently we sat down with Jim Gordon himself, Ben McKenzie, to discuss Jim’s journey to hold on to what he holds dear while fighting the ever-growing dark forces that continue to plague Gotham.

Full interview after the jump.

Batman Assault on Arkham. Yahtzee! One of the Best Films of 2014.


While I’m a big fan of the DCU Animated films and even put last year’s amazing Dark Knight Returns film on my top 5 movie list for 2013, I have to say, I’m a little tired of DC Animation focusing on Batman and Superman.

Batman Arkham Origins Mobile App Launches!


I really dig the two current mobile Batman games – Batman Arkham City Lockdown and the game based on The Dark Knight Rises so I’m really looking forward to seeing what Warner Interactive does with the mobile game based on Batman Arkham Origins. The free game will hit iOS around the console game launch (Oct 25th) with an Android version coming later. Generally, I find the freemium model irritating, I’d rather just pay $5.99 or $7.99 and get a fuller experience. Based on the new trailer, this year’s installment looks amazing. Have I said recently how much I’m looking forward to Batman: Arkham Origins on Oct 25th?
