We’re kicking off the post with this spot from Gotham because it has the truly hilarious tagline of “The Origin Stories Begin.” Er, well, yeah, we’d hope so. It’d be a shame to have an origin story that just ended right away. That wouldn’t really be an origin story. We guess it’d be a destination story.

Teasing aside, it does look pretty good, at least, and there’s a little more new footage in the second spot, including a hooded executioner and Jada Pinkett Smith handing out a beating. Although they really needed to dub Bruce Wayne’s scream of rage; come on, nobody’s scared of a shrieking little kid.

Also, our theory of a Monday night genre block on Fox is coming true: Gotham will debut September 22nd, along with Sleepy Hollow. It’ll be an interesting pairing, especially considering Sleepy Hollow has had a tendency to chew through lead-ins. Hey, maybe there can be a crossover! We can see it now: “Mr. Wayne, I neither appreciate nor comprehend why you use these ridiculous themed throwing weapons. Would not a musket be more efficient?” Boom, all the ratings. You’re welcome, Fox.
