Five iconic Batman characters have received their own posters for Fox’s upcoming TV series “Gotham,” based on the origins of Caped Crusader’s longtime ally and friend, Commissioner James Gordon.

The Batman prequel series is helmed by writer and executive producer Bruno Heller, the creative mind behind “The Mentalist” and “Rome,” and stars Ben McKenzie, known for roles in “Southland” and “The O.C.,” as Jim Gordon, the tireless Gotham City Police detective.

The new posters, released this week via social media, feature McKenzie and four other key characters, including Selina Kyle, an unpredictable street thief and pickpocket who eventually becomes Catwoman, portrayed by Camren Bicondova; tough ex-marine and Wayne Manor butler Alfred Pennyworth, played by Sean Pertwee; Oswald Cobblepot, an orphaned outcast who eventually becomes the gentleman villain the Penguin, played by Robin Lord Taylor; and Gordon’s partner and mentor Det. Harvey Bullock, portrayed by Donal Logue.

In addition to those characters, the announced cast also includes David Mazouz as a preteen Bruce Wayne, the orphan who eventually becomes Batman; Jada Pinkett Smith as original character Fish Mooney, a sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner; Zabryna Guevara (“Burn Notice,” “3 lbs.”) as Capt. Essen, Gordon’s boss at the Gotham City Police Department homicide squad; and Erin Richards as Gordon’s fiancée Barbara Kean, an emergency room doctor.

Danny Cannon (“Nikita”) will direct and executive produce the pilot.
