Gotham is the highly-anticipated Batman prequel that’s coming to RTÉ Two - and here’s a teaser about the villains in the new drama from Fox.

The clip includes the Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), crime boss Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) and the young Selina Kyle, who will become Catwoman (Camren Bicondova).

Ben McKenzie narrates the teaser in character as rookie detective (and future Commissioner) James Gordon, and describes the Gotham Police Department as the last line of defence against the criminal underworld.

Gotham will also star David Mazouz as the young Bruce Wayne, who comes under the dual guidance of butler Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee) and Gordon when his parents are murdered.

McKenzie recently acknowledged that tackling the Batman origin story comes with tremendous pressure, saying: “There's a tendency with such a familiar world that it can be intimidating.

“But you got to relax and do it. It ought to be bigger and grander and - frankly - cooler than most, but you have to treat it like a job.”

Here's the teaser:
