FOX’s Gotham will definitely enter a whole new world of Bat-mythology in 2016, and B.D. Wong’s take on Hugo Strange may just give us the push we needed. See for yourself in the first clip from 2016 premiere “Mr. Freeze,” along with the hour’s first photos!

FOX’s Gotham hasn’t put too much effort into protecting outdoor shoots of late, revealing Mr. Freeze’s final form within hours of the character’s first major trailer, and now it seems DC’s Azrael has arrived early as well. Not only do we have a full glimpse of the character’s impressive costume, but also some massive spoilers of the figure under the hood.
The latest trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is more like “BATMAN!!!! (And Oh Yeah Superman Too).”
The Flash’s first trip to Earth-2 promised easter eggs galore, and DC delivered an entire multiverse’s worth! Not only did CBS’ Supergirl make her first official crossover of sorts, but tonight’s trippy Flash also teased our first look at Legends’ Jonah Hex and Connor Hawke, another familiar Flash, and near of the entire damn Justice League!
Gotham hasn’t been shy teasing both Mr. Freeze and Hugo Strange in advance of its 2016 return, and the latest trailer sees both in action. Not only that, but Edward Nygma may be setting his sights on Gordon, and Mr. Freeze may yet have some white in his future.
FOX’s Gotham has been on a cold snap of teasing its latest early Batman arrival, but another, equally sinister villain will make an ominous debut in the DC drama’s February 29 return. Meet Jurassic World star B.D. Wong’s take on Hugo Strange, in a new photo of the major Bat-Baddie’s debut!
Early Gotham showings of a young Mr. Freeze brought understandably icy reception; certainly an upgrade for the FOX drama’s costume quotient, if perhaps not-all-there yet. Well, get ready for the full-blown Freeze, as new set photos reveal the chilling sound of Gotham’s doom, cold suit and all!
Whatever your feelings on FOX’s Gotham, we’re at least curious to see how the Bat-prequel handles two of the Dark Knight’s most iconic rogues, Mr. Freeze and Hugo Strange. We met the former briefly last year, and now his reign of icy terror continues in our first 2016 promo for Season 2’s return.
Boy, these new Barbie body types are sure getting really specific. I mean, it makes sense for Mattel to attempt to reach a broader, more diverse audience by releasing new Barbies that better match the girls and young women of the world, but aging, rich white dude with trust issues hardly seems like it will strike the right chord. The only thing this might strike is fear into the hearts of criminals. Though Mattel had announced the full DC Trinity (in their Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice garb) would be getting the Barbie treatment at San Diego Comic-Con last year, the only doll anyone got to see was Wonder Woman. The Amazonian princess certainly looked the part, but nobody really knew what to expect from a potential Batman or Superman at the time. With Toy Fair 2016 right around the corner, and Mattel having a large Barbie and DC Comics presence at the show, it seemed like we might get our first glimpse at the Bruce and Clark Ken dolls in a few weeks. Thanks to Amazon, we no longer have to wait for Batman.
However many Batmen and Jokers the movies throw at us, many will always see (or hear) Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill’s take on comics’ most iconic arch-enemies as definitive. Batman: The Animated Series may be long gone, but both will return to their roles for a new Justice League Action animated series, airing on Cartoon Network.
