Gotham Season 2: Batman’s City Is Getting Whole Host Of Series Regulars, And Villains

Gotham season 2 is shaping up to be quite different from its predecessor. According to TJS Newspaper, is being labeled the season of villains, as there are many new ones appearing Gotham and many others are coming into their own in this Batman prequel. Cinema Blend gives Gotham fans a pretty hearty offering of villains that will be showing their face in Gotham City, long before Batman suits up.

Tigress, Azrael, and Hugo Strange are among this lengthy list of Gotham’s least finest. Strange and Tigress do not seem to hard to work with, but Azrael is an unusual consideration and likely going to be somebody that doesn’t carry much of the characters actual look or name. Gotham’s most notable and infamous, The Penguin, The Joker, and The Riddler, will be advancing to their greater roles from DC Comics.

Oh, and not to forget that Mr. Freeze, Mad Hatter, and Clayface will also begin their Batman origins in Gotham season 2. Does that seem like an awful lot of Gotham’s baddest? Well, there is more villains to be had in Gotham season 2.

There’s billionaire industrialist Theo Galavant, brother to Tigress. Comicbook reports that Fox/Gotham just cast Leo Fitzpatrik as Joe Pike, the leader of a gang of arsonists. Then, there is the kind-of, sort-of villain Capt. Nathaniel Barnes, who will be played by work-outside-the-law The Shield Michael Chikilis. He befriend, and betray, Detective James Gordon during the series. Since Barnes and Gordon’s brand of justice differs, this makes a lot of sense.

Beyond the new entries to Gotham City, Drew Powell (Butch), Morena Baccarin (Leslie Tompkins), Nicholas D’Agosto (Harvey Dent) and Chris Chalk (Lucius Fox) will become series regulars. Since Butch now works for Penguin, Harvey Dent and Lucius Fox are crucial to Batman and Gotham’s future, it seems to make sense. Leslie, Jim Gordon’s girlfriend, hasn’t quite been explained as to where the show will take her.

Batman has a lot on his plate for not even being able to shave yet, so hopefully, Jim Gordon can handle all these Gotham villains in one season. Gotham season 2 premieres September 21, ahead of your other DC Comics shows.
