20 November 2014 11:41 AM, PST

(As episode director Peter Weller told EW, "Kurt said as a tone note that he would rarely give an actor a beat where we don’t hear what he’s hearing, so it’s all played on his face, but he would definitely give that to Jimmy Smits because Jimmy Smits is unbelievable. »

20 November 2014 9:02 AM, PST

Could Gotham break from the Batman canon and kill off one of its iconic characters? It's not impossible. Showrunner Bruno Heller reveals that while he's very reluctant to lose any cast member, his plan is to establish the Fox prequel series as firmly part of the Batman canon, and then start "messing with people's minds" in unexpected ways. Heller (Rome, The Mentalist) spoke to EW about how his break-out series has evolved from its earliest episodes, his reasoning behind the show's villain strategy, and whether canonical characters are truly safe.
