Superhero Sunday: ‘Gotham’ rises for a fourth season renewal

“Gotham” won’t fall into cancellation, as FOX renews the Batman prequel series for a fourth season.

Whereas CW’s “Supergirl” is the sophomore light, “Gotham” remains the dark of comic-book/superhero television in its third season as the ‘Mad City’ known for both the rise and wrath of villains such as Oswald Cobblepot/the Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), Edward Nygma/the Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova), Poison Ivy (Maggie Geha), Jervis Tetch/the Mad Hatter (Benedict Samuel), Firefly, Mr. Freeze (Nathan Darrow) … and, of course, the Joker.

But Gotham is also the city that ‘Heroes Rise’ in the form of GCPD detective James ‘Jim’ Gordon (Ben McKenzie), a war veteran and former white knight/former bounty hunter whose rise as the police commissioner will help bring about the rise of young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), whose parents’ murder leads him on a journey to begin his training as the protector of Gotham: a symbol of hope and justice for a city known as the breeding ground for evil and corruption.  With the guidance and direction of Gordon, faithful butler/father figure Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee), and Lucius Fox (Chris Chalk), boy billionaire Bruce Wayne will rise from the dark prince to the Dark Knight of Gotham: the Caped Crusader forever called the Batman.

“Gotham” airs Monday nights.
