Jada Pinkett Smith's new character does not mind spilling a bit of blood or a bit of hair dye it seems.

The 42-year-old stepped out in New York as the sinister Fish Mooney on Tuesday, showing off a short pixie cut hairstyle with a long red-dipped fringe.

While Jada is no stranger to edgy 'dos - she has been sporting a partially shaved head and braids of late - the new look seemed to help the star transformer herself into the newest nemesis of Batman.

This is the first time the actress has been seen in character and the first time the character has ever been seen as well, because the 'sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner' is a new villain created especially for the series.

According to her official character description, Jada's Fish has 'got the street smarts and almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book... Imposing and hotheaded, she’s not one to be crossed'.

Looking like she had just stepped out of her character's nightclub, the mother of two - Jaden and Willow - was dressed in a leather and metallic fabric green dress, which showed off her toned legs, with a pair of platform peep toe shoes.

Of course, while that may be perfect attire for the hot clubs of Gotham City, New York is a different story, so the Matrix Reloaded star covered up in a big full length padded hooded jacket.
And, staying true to her metal stylings of late, the actress quickly changed her stilettos for a pair of punky motorcycle boots.

Jada's character did not feature in the DC Comics from which the show's villains have been pulled from.

However, while she may be new, Fish is the boss of memorable DC Comic star the Penguin for the Fox series.

Gotham is a prequel to the Batman stories that continues to be hits on the big screen and focus more on the rise of the embattled city to-be police commissioner Jim Gordon.

Still a long way from leading the police force, the young cop will be played by The O.C.'s Ben McKenzie who already developed a strong police persona while starring in the critically acclaimed Southland.
