You can’t say that GOTHAM hasn’t been taking advantage of Batman’s rogues’ gallery. While in my mind, the show went off the deep end early on when it placed too much emphasis on fan service and not enough on its initial premise, it does have its positives. Once I stopped crying over the fact that the show isn’t what I wanted it to be, I began to appreciate it for what it’s doing–as imperfect as it may be.
For the first time, we’ll be seeing Hugo Strange in the flesh, played by B.D. Wong, and now Fox has shared a teaser for the character.
Take a look below!
“The good. The evil. The beginning.
The origin story continues on GOTHAM: RISE OF THE VILLAINS and the stakes are higher than ever, as Super Villains more ambitious and depraved are introduced, and a realignment of alliances shakes up the fight for power in Gotham City.
Detective JIM GORDON (Ben McKenzie) and the ethically questionable veteran Detective HARVEY BULLOCK (Donal Logue) remain at the forefront of the fight against crime in this dangerously corrupt city. While confronting Gothamâ€™s most notorious criminals, Gordonâ€™s moral compass begins to waver. But he is taken under the wing of NATHANIEL BARNES (Michael Chiklis), a law-and-order zealot who is unafraid of making enemies. Meanwhile, Gordon continues his quest to gain the trust of the young BRUCE WAYNE (David Mazouz), who is on a clear path towards the man he is destined to become, after discovering his fatherâ€™s deepest secrets, with the help of his trusted butler and mentor, ALFRED PENNYWORTH (Sean Pertwee) and newfound ally at Wayne Enterprises, LUCIUS FOX (Chris Chalk).”
