Fox’s Batman prequel “Gotham” released its first-look character photo of “The O.C.” and “Southland” alum Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon.

It’s just the actor in a suit, with the smokey city in the background. Gordon is a Gotham City police detective who eventually becomes police commissioner.

Producers previously revealed photos of veteran Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot — aka the Penguin — and English actor Sean Pertwee (“Elementary”) as Alfred, young Bruce Wayne’s butler and caretaker.

“Gotham” also released photos of the future Catwoman, Selina Kyle, played by newcomer Camren Bicondova, and Donal Logue as Gotham City Police Detective Harvey Bullock. Fox rolled out the images on several social media sites, including Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Warner Bros. is producing “Gotham” based on characters from DC Entertainment. The pilot is executive produced by Danny Cannon (“CSI”) and Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist”), who also wrote the script. Cannon is directing the pilot.

The drama, set in the world of The Dark Knight, is in production with a series commitment from Fox.
