UK trailer for Gotham is a little different

The UK trailer for Gotham gives us a few new perspectives on character.  The ideology turn in this show is to focus on Gotham as a character. My forthcoming course, "Creating the Comic Book City" uses this same structural analysis to great effect. To understand comics, you must understand the urban fears and aspiration that inform the character's archetype.  For Batman, Gotham represents the civilizing ethos associated with the frontier applied to the urban experience.  This might make the difference for the Anglo-American audience.
