Gotham Executive Producer Confirms Mr. Freeze Origin

9 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Gotham executive producer Danny Cannon, who also directed the pilot episode, said back in June that he would like to bring beloved Batman villain Mr. Freeze into the proceedings. Now, Cannon has confirmed that Freeze will appear on the show, and gave a bit of insight into how he’ll be brought into the fold.

At San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, Cannon spoke with Digital Spy and said that Freeze will get an origin story on the show, but it will be re-imagined a bit in order to fit Gotham‘s more realistic, grounded approach. Cannon hopes to explain the science behind someone like Mr. Freeze, and says his past work on CSI gave him some ideas on how to do that properly:

“Without giving too much away – because I’m not allowed to – the great thing about working on a ‘CSI’ procedural show for so long was we »

"Gotham" Chills With 'Mr. Freeze'

30 July 2014 3:04 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to "Gotham" executive producer Danny Cannon, the 'Batman' super-villain 'Mr. Freeze' will appear on the new series.

"...about the villains in this show...they need to be very credible and relatable and the science behind them needs to be real," said Cannon, "so I had a couple of stories that I'd held onto - real, true stories - and one of them just related to 'Mr Freeze'. I know a real way to create an origin story."

Other 'Batman' comic book villains including 'Edward "The Riddler" Nygma', 'Selina "Catwoman" Kyle', 'Harvey "Two-Face" Dent', 'Oswald "The Penguin" Cobblepot' and 'Ivy "Poison Ivy' Pepper.

Mr. Freeze has been a favorite comic book character to adapt for live-action, having been played by George Sanders, Otto Preminger and Eli Wallach in the 1966 "Batman" TV series, and by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the feature "Batmanb & Robin" (1997).

5 Reasons Gotham Needs to Be on Your Fall Must-See List

28 July 2014 3:54 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Gotham is one of Fox's most buzzed-about new shows debuting this Fall, and for good reason. I saw the first episode of the Batman-inspired series, and there's a lot to love. The show revolves around James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as a young detective working his way up the ranks in Gotham. We meet him right as he and his partner Harvey (Donal Logue) take on the murder of one Bruce Wayne's (David Mazouz) parents. The series premieres on Sept. 22, and if you like what you read below, you should definitely check out the trailer. It starts out with a bang . . . literally. Let's be clear about one thing: Gotham isn't the story of Batman. It's the story of James Gordon attempting to clean up the crime-ridden streets of Gotham before a superhero rises up to clear the scum away, and Gordon's story begins with the death of young Bruce's parents. I'm not giving much away here, »

‘Gotham’ will also include Batman villains Harvey 'Two-Face' Dent and Hugo Strange

23 July 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Fox’s "Gotham" has already promises appearances by such classic Batman villains as Catwoman, Penguin, Poison Ivy, Riddler and, eventually, The Joker. But before the end of the first season, viewers will also meet at least two more members of the Dark Knight’s rogues gallery: Harvey Dent and Hugo Strange. “Hugo Strange is going to pop up because we’re going to start dealing with how Arkham was created and why Arkham was created in the way that it was so, yeah, absolutely,” showrunner Bruno Heller tells IGN. “It’s a Season 1 thing because in our telling of it the way Arkham was created and the why and how is one of the causes of the particular criminal climate in Gotham that allowed Batman to happen. The revolving door of Arkham is both a brilliant narrative device because it allows you to — you don’t have to kill people off, »

Gotham showrunner talks Harvey Dent and Hugo Strange

23 July 2014 1:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this week we brought you some comments from Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller about the inclusion of Poison Ivy – sorry, Ivy Pepper – and The Joker in the upcoming Batman prequel series, and now he’s been talking about utilising another two members of The Dark Knight’s Rogues Gallery in Harvey Dent and Professor Hugo Strange.

“We’re playing Harvey Dent slightly older,” Heller tells IGN with regards to the future Two-Face. “He’s more Gordon’s age in this telling. One of the things to avoid in order not to tell a high school story — which would be great, but it”s a different show on a different network at a different time that I would not be a part of. But he will go back to school and villains will be part of that world.”

And as for Hugo Strange, it seems his story will be linked with that of Arkham Asylum, »

‘Gotham’ Season 1 to Feature Hugo Strange & Harvey Dent

22 July 2014 6:23 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Whether or not Batman accidentally managed to make crime in Gotham City even worse than it was before he came along is an oft-debated question in comic book circles. With that in mind, Fox’s upcoming prequel show Gotham could potentially clear Bruce Wayne’s name a little by showing that Gotham City wasn’t exactly the loveliest place to live even before he came along. Between gangsters like Fish Mooney, budding supervillains like Penguin and corrupt police officers like Jim Gordon’s partner, Harvey Bullock, Gotham City certainly looks like quite a mess from what we’ve seen in the trailers for Gotham so far. Younger versions of Poison Ivy, Riddler and Catwoman will also appear in ...

Showrunner Bruno Heller Talks Gotham, Avoiding Fantasy, Casting the Series, Teasing Out The Joker in Every Episode, and More

22 July 2014 6:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the most highly anticipated new shows of the season is the Fox drama series Gotham.  From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome) and with a beautifully cinematic pilot directed by Danny Cannon (the CSI franchise, Nikita), it is the origin story for a number of the characters in the Batman universe, including Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler and Poison Ivy, as it shows what made them the formidable adversaries that they eventually become.  At its core, it is the story of Detective James Gordon’s (Benjamin McKenzie) rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil, and it chronicles the birth of one of the most popular superheroes of our time. While at the Fox portion of the TCA Press Tour, showrunner Bruno Heller spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about developing the look for the city of Gotham, making it feel »

Gotham Will Include Older Harvey Dent and Hugo Strange

22 July 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We can now add a couple more characters to the list of villains that we will see in Gotham. So far we have Catwoman, Penguin, Riddler, Poison Ivy, and Joker making appearances, but now it looks like Doctor Hugo Strange will be included along with an older version of Harvey Dent. 

IGN had an opportunity to talk to show runner Bruno Heller about the series, and this is what he had to say regarding Strange and Arkham:

"Hugo Strange is going to pop up because we're going to start dealing with how Arkham was created and why Arkham was created in the way that it was so, yeah, absolutely. It's a Season One thing because in our telling of it the way Arkham was created and the why and how is one of the causes of the particular criminal climate in Gotham that allowed Batman to happen.

Harvey Dent And Hugo Strange Are Headed To Gotham

21 July 2014 6:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham arrives in the fall, we’ll be introduced to younger versions of several key and beloved members of the Caped Crusader’s rogues gallery, including the Penguin, Riddler, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy. And that’s just in the pilot episode! The producers have already expressed their desires to bring characters like Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze, and even the Joker into the fold, and have just revealed their intentions to expand the roster a bit more.

According to showrunner and executive producer Bruno Heller, Hugo Strange and Harvey Dent are headed to the small screen. Speaking with IGN, Heller revealed that their plans for Hugo Strange stretch beyond just introducing the lesser-known adversary (who was one of the major antagonists in the Batman: Arkham City videogame). Apparently, his presence will also help establish the show’s version of Arkham Asylum:

Two Further "Gotham" Villains Revealed

21 July 2014 4:39 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Two further potential villains from the Batman comics are set to show their faces on the upcoming first season of Fox's "Gotham".

First up, show runner Bruno Heller says Dr. Hugo Strange will be making an appearance in the first season and will be tied to the creation of Arkham Asylum:

"Hugo Strange is going to pop up because we're going to start dealing with how Arkham was created and why Arkham was created in the way that it was so, yeah, absolutely. It's a Season One thing because in our telling of it the way Arkham was created and the why and how is one of the causes of the particular criminal climate in Gotham that allowed Batman to happen.

'Gotham' Producer Addresses Joker Rumors, and Talks Poison Ivy

21 July 2014 5:21 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Last week reports surfaced that we'd be getting a ton of Joker teases in Fox's upcoming TV show based in the Batman universe, Gotham. Now we have some official comments from one of the show's executive producers, Bruno Heller, who took some time at the Television Critics Association to address those rumors.

Heller revealed that the rumors were partially accurate, but that it wouldn't be a strictly-Joker thing they'll be doing. The teases of "Is that who I think it is?" will apply to several members of Batman's rogue gallery.

His comments on how the show will be handling the teases:

"We will be playing with… Not just with Joker. Half the fun with all of these characters is who is going to turn into what and when? Certainly the Joker is a good example. In the pilot, you see there’s a comedian there. People immediately leap… And that »

Gotham showrunner talks Joker and Poison Ivy plans

21 July 2014 3:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fox’s upcoming Batman prequel series Gotham has been generating a ton of fan interest because of its heavy focus on the Dark Knight’s extensive rogues gallery, who appear to be just as front-and-center in the series as its main protagonist, the young up-and-coming detective James Gordon.

Showing us early incarnations of these villains will be no easy feat, and is hopefully something the writers and showrunners will approach cautiously. It will be all too easy for them to throw in all kinds of easter eggs, fan-service cameos and winks at the audience; but luckily it seems like they’ve got a plan that will stray away from that.

Executive producer Bruno Heller (Rome, The Mentalist) was present at the Television Critics Association press tour on Sunday, and answered some questions about two of Batman’s most famous and beloved villains, the Joker and Poison Ivy.

Chills and thrills: will Gotham City be put on ice? George Clooney is Batman as the dark knight battles his greatest threat yet: cold-hearted Mr. Freeze (Schwarzenegger) and venomous Poison Ivy (Thurman). Batman has more than Gotham City to protect: the youthful eagerness of crimefighting comrades Robin (O'Donnell) and Batgirl (Silversone) puts them frequently in harm's way. Batman & Robin (1997) was directed by Joel Schumacher, from a script written by Akiva Goldsman. The film starred: Arnold Schwarzenegger as Dr. Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze, George Clooney as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Chris O'Donnell as Dick Grayson/Robin, Uma Thurman as Dr. Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy, Alicia Silverstone as Barbara Wilson/Batgirl, Michael Gough as Alfred Pennyworth, Pat Hingle as Commissioner James Gordon, Elle Macpherson as Julie Madison, Vivica »

16 July 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So, what are you going to do while you're waiting until 2016 for "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice"? Well, Fox hopes that your itch for Bruce Wayne and co. will be scratched with their DC Comics series "Gotham" and they are promoting the hell out of it. Later this month they'll be at the San Diego Comic-Con to unveil more goodies, but first is a new teaser for the show, and the key word here is: brooding. The eternally stoic Ben McKenzie ("The O.C.," "Southland") takes the lead here as Detective James Gordon, in a story set in the world of Batman... before he was Batman. Indeed, the series will start off a young Bruce Wayne, tracking his rise while Gordon battles all manner of classic villains like Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Penguin, or at least the pre-costumed versions of them. It's an interesting gamble, one that hopes audiences will »

Rookie detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) tries to make a difference in his corrupt hometown in the latest trailer for Fox's Batman prequel series Gotham. Along with seeing all of the primary villains such as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Robin Taylor), Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova), Edward Nygma/The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), Ivy Pepper/Poison Ivy (Clare Foley) and Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), this footage gives us new information about Gordon himself, who has just returned to Gotham as a war hero as these villains look on.

Set to the hit Aloe Blacc song "Ticking Bomb," this new trailer shows the one man prepared to stand up to Gotham's greed and corruption to try and make it a better place.

Gotham follows one cop, destined for greatness, as he navigates a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the rise of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes. »

Gotham Will Introduce A Possible Joker Every Episode

15 July 2014 12:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham won’t only be an origin story for future Gcpd commissioner Jim Gordon, but will explore the origins of the Dark Knight’s extensive rogues gallery. In the pilot alone, we’ll be introduced to the Penguin, Riddler, Poison Ivy, and Catwoman. We’ve also heard that the showrunners have plans to introduce Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze, and the Joker at some point as well.

Bringing the Clown Prince of Crime to the small screen before he becomes the iconic psychopath we all know and love is a risky proposition, and one it seems the writers of the series are not taking lightly. We’ve heard from executive producer Bruno Heller that we should keep our eyes peeled for the Joker, and that he may be subtly introduced over time. Now, according to Bleeding Cool, we have a clearer picture of what that slow-introduction will entail. »
