Recently FOX had announced that Gotham would in fact be back for a fifth season and that it would be the show’s last. With Jeremiah turning Gotham into a sort of “No Man’s Land” we find some of our favorite villains running around unchecked claiming their own territories. With that said it looks like Jim Gordon and Bruce Wayne will have more villains and maybe allies to deal with.
In an exclusive interview with CBR executive producer for Gotham John Stephens talked about some new characters that will make a debut in the show’s final season.
“There are a whole bunch of characters I want to see that I feel the viewers at large aren’t fully aware of, like Scarface or Ventriloquist. There’s a great dark version of that character somewhere out there who I would like to see come out. Some characters we know we want to see are Mother and Orphan. We want to see Lady Shiva. We are going to see all those characters in Season 5.”
Scarface has been featured before in Batman: The Animated Series. He has always been an interesting character as he is a puppet that is controlled by the ventriloquist Arnold Wesker. But a lot of times it seems that he is the one being controlled by Scarface. Also it will be great to see Cassandra Cain and her mother Lady Shiva, but with no Dark Knight for inspiration, what Cain will show up?
DC Comics’ No Mans Land story arc is one of my favorites and it looks like they might be headed in that direction. What are your thoughts on these characters joining Gotham? Let us know in the comment section below!
