New Joker call and Gotham Tonight Episode: Bank Robbery July 13th, 2008

The own­ers of the assorted Joker phones have received a new phone call, with a mon­tage of mum­bled sounds and clips with phrases such as “Is any­body there? Please help” and “Don’t do it, don’t do it”, together with the sounds of the Gotham PD in the back­ground before end­ing with the Joker’s mani­a­cal laugh.

Coin­cid­ing with this phone call, the lat­est episode of Gotham Tonight has been added to GCN, the episode is set to inter­view Har­vey Dent, the “White Knight”, how­ever half way through it cuts to news of The Joker’s bank robbery.

Cel­e­brated jour­nal­ist Mike Engel sits down with the “White Knight” of Gotham City — Dis­trict Attor­ney Har­vey Dent. Dent defends con­tro­ver­sial crime-fighter Bat­man, and says they’ve “ben­e­fited the entire city.”

Dent takes calls from view­ers on Jonathan Crane and fears of a new out­break of Fear Toxin, and con­fronts a GPD police offi­cer angry over Dent’s pros­e­cu­tion of cor­rupt cops. And Engel asks the ques­tions everybody’s been talk­ing about — is Har­vey Dent dat­ing Assis­tant Dis­trict Attor­ney Rachel Dawes? The episode ends with the break­ing news that the Gotham National Bank has been hit by rob­bers who made away with 68 mil­lion dol­lars from the vault.

Gotham Tonight Episode 5 July 8th, 2008

The 5th episode of Gotham Tonight has been added to the Gotham Cable Network:

World-famous jour­nal­ist Mike Engel goes to the heart of Har­vey Dent’s case against mob king­pin Sal Maroni — Maroni him­self. The noto­ri­ous fig­ure, now stand­ing trial in a Gotham court­room, faces tough ques­tions on alle­ga­tions that he is at the top of an orga­nized crime fam­ily dev­as­tat­ing Gotham City.

Maroni uses his trade­mark charm and good humor to stymie Engel’s ques­tion­ing, but his hon­esty is attacked by GPD Com­mi­sioner Loeb. And Mike Engel quizzes Loeb on the two mob bag­men found dead last week — and the leaked GPD sur­veil­lance tape that recorded the abduction.

At GCN you can also catch the ear­lier four episodes.

Gotham Tonight #2 is online June 23rd, 2008

The sec­ond episode of Gotham Tonight is online at the Gotham City News net­work. You can still catch the first episode in their archive

Gotham Tonight looks at the tragic, mys­te­ri­ous, and flam­boy­ant life of bil­lion­aire play­boy Bruce Wayne. Born into enor­mous wealth, Bruce’s life changed for­ever when he wit­nessed the shoot­ing deaths of his par­ents in down­town Gotham.

GCN’s pre­mier news pro­gram looks at Bruce’s life then, and now. Gotham Tonight gets exclu­sive com­ment from Dis­trict Attor­ney Har­vey Dent, who’s rumored to be dat­ing Bruce’s old friend Rachel Dawes. And GT also exam­ines the ascent of Bruce Wayne to CEO of Wayne Enter­prises — what is the eco­nomic giant plan­ning now?

Watch it on Com­cast Chan­nel One or right here at GCN.

At the end of this edi­tion, two more episodes were con­firmed for the upcom­ing weeks, one set to pro­file our old friend, Jim Gordon.

Updates on GCN June 20th, 2008

The Com­cast Gotham Cable News net­work has updated with a sec­tion ded­i­cated to Bat­man Sight­ings — con­tent sub­mit­ted by cit­i­zens of Gotham [fans] where they have wit­nessed or seen signs of the caped cru­sader, how­ever dubious.

There is also a pre­view of the next Gotham Tonight episode, show­ing a snip­pet of Aaron Eck­hart as Har­vey Dent, talk­ing about Bruce Wayne.

GCN Updated — Batman Sightings, Gotham Tonight show June 16th, 2008

Gotham Cable News has updated, there is now a link to the Gotham City Pizze­ria (remem­ber today’s pro­mo­tion!), a sub­mit your sight­ings of Bat­man arti­cle and sub­mis­sion page and most impor­tantly, the high res­o­lu­tion, high qual­ity 8 minute “Gotham Tonight” video which orig­i­nally aired on friday.

Gotham Tonight Screen­shots:

Have You Spot­ted Bat­man in Your Neigh­bor­hood (Sub­mit Pic­tures):

We want your Bat­man pics. We just can’t cover the entire city with GCN pho­tog­ra­phers, so we’re ask­ing for cit­i­zens to sub­mit their pho­tos. Click here for sub­mis­sion page.

When­ever news breaks, GCN is there. We’ve cov­ered all the news you care about — from traf­fic tie-ups to police chases to scan­dal at City Hall.

One news tar­get is prov­ing elu­sive — Bat­man. Every­one is talk­ing about him — the cops, the crim­i­nals, even the kids on the play­ground seem to know all about this myth­i­cal hero.

But the infa­mous cru­sader seems to be quite camera-shy. In fact, GCN news oper­a­tives have not yet snapped one usable shot of this con­tro­ver­sial Gotham figure.

That’s why we need to ask you, the cit­i­zens of Gotham for help. Keep a look­out for the famil­iar dark sil­hou­ette of Bat­man. Remem­ber to carry a cam­era — dig­i­tal, film, cell-phone, or video — on your per­son at all time.

As Gotham City has learned, you can never know when Bat­man will decide to emerge from wher­ever he lurks between interventions.

We’ll post the best ones here on GCN. So get your flash­lights out and start cir­cling the block, because Bat­man is out there — you just have to find him.

Thanks Bruce and Keith!
