Warner Brothers Home Entertainment has just added Gotham: The Complete First Season to its roster, lining up the superhero-themes television show for release on Blu-Ray Disc and DVD in September.
Before there was Batman, there was Gotham City. Everyone knows the name of Commissioner Gordon, but what of his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the layers of corruption in Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? Gotham tells the story of the world’s most iconic DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes from the very beginning, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome), this crime drama follows GCPD Detective James Gordon’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city, while also chronicling the genesis of one of the most popular DC Comics Super Heroes of our time. Although the crime drama follows Gordon’s turbulent and singular career, it also focuses on his unlikely friendship with the young Bruce Wayne – with his mentorship a crucial element in developing the mythology of Gotham City.
The release will feature all 22 episodes of the show’s first season, along with 2 hours worth of bonus materials, including a Gag Reel and Unaired Scenes alongside with numerous Featurettes, such as ”Gotham Invented: Building Our Gotham,” “Gotham Invented: Paving the Way for the Caped Crusader,” “Gotham Invented: Fractured Villains of Gotham,” “Designing the Fiction” and ”The Game of Cobblepot”.
The DC Comics Night at Comic-Con 2014, presenting Gotham, The Flash, Constantine and Arrow, will also be included, along with GOTHAM: The Legend Reborn and a number of Character Profiles.
“Gotham: The Complete First Season” will be in stores on September 8 for $60.10 on Blu-Ray Disc and $59.99 on DVD.
