Courtesy of Comic Book Resource comes this cast photo fresh from the soon to premier Batman prequel “Gotham”. The photo was posted by Ben Mckenzie who plays a young detective Gordon. Mckenzie came to fame playing Brian Atwood on the O.C. More interesting for us however is what the photo reveals. A first look at Mrs. Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s as “Fish Mooney”.
Some of you may remember the news that Jada was cast as Mooney back in February. Mooney is described as:
“the boss of Oswald Cobblepot, the man who eventually becomes The Penguin”.
“a sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner,
she’s got the street smarts and almost extra-sensory abilities
to read people like an open book.
Imposing and hotheaded, she’s not one to be crossed.”
Here’s a better look at Jada Pinkett-Smit as Fish Mooney. Her inclusion on the cast photo also suggests a bigger role than previously thought on “Fox’s Gotham“.
Other Easter eggs in the photo include Robin Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot standing next to Jada Pinkett-Smith as Fish Mooney. Cobblepot comic faithfuls remember will eventually become “The Penguin”. From left directly beside Mooney we also have Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma who becomes the Riddler, Clare Foley as the girl who will one day become Poison Ivy credited on IMDb as “Ivy Pepper,”. Rounding things out are David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne and Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth. Above Alfred and Bruce sits Selena Kyle perched on a fire escape.
Other neat tidbits include a poster of a Penguin above Oswald Cobblepot, a cat close to Selena Kyle and a question sign on Enigma and the future poison Ivy holds a Rose. Interesting stuff all around!
