Late last month, FOX Bat-prequel Gotham made one of its most villainous castings yet, setting Law & Order legend B.D. Wong as iconic Bat-foe Hugo Strange, though it was tough to imagine the Jurassic World baddie in the iconic bald, bearded spectacles look. Now, Wong offers an early look at Gotham’s Hugo Strange, with a suggestion of some unique applications.

We’re a little over four months from the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will launch a whole new world of films into our lives: the DC Cinematic Universe. Spinning out of the events of 2013’s Man of Steel, it will pit Henry Cavill’s Superman against Ben Affleck’s Batman, and put both characters on the path toward a massive two-part film about DC’s heavy-hitting super-team, the Justice League of America, which will also feature the exploits of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), the Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and more.

Since Batman vs. Superman was first announced, many openly wondered how Batman, a dude with no discernible superpowers, would be able to fight Superman, a dude with ALL the superpowers, without getting completely destroyed rather quickly. Director Zack Snyder knows that’s on your mind and has a very simple answer for how Batman plans to even the playing field: he’s going to cheat.

The other day, FOX’s Gotham significantly upped its Batman quotient with the announcement of its Mr. Freeze, today doubling down with the addition of a younger Hugo Strange. Law & Order and Jurassic franchise vet B.D. Wong will suit up as the nefarious Strange, and that’s great! It’s also terrible, but great!

FOX’s Gotham has a spotty track record when it comes to introducing major Bat-villains early (well, a spotty track record for everything, really), and the latest is downright cold-hearted. Batman won’t be sending Mr. Freeze to the cooler just yet, but young Bruce may at least cross paths with Victor Fries, as portrayed by House of Cards alum Nathan Darrow.

We’ve known for some time that the upcoming Wonder Woman movie would take place in two time periods: modern day and World War I. But, what if that modern day time period, wasn’t exactly modern day. As it turns out, the Wonder Woman movie will actually serve as a prequel to Batman vs. Superman, taking place before the events of that movie.

Watch a ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Trailer, Old-Timey Style

The video title clocks the date of imaginary-release at 1949, but janky capes-and-tights pictures in the style emulated above filled cineplexes through the ‘50s, thrilling audiences with their tales of derring-do. If you’re so inclined, feel free to interpret the rudimentary writing on display in the video, sampled from the crude superhero films of the era, as a comment on Zack Snyder’s capabilities as a stylist of dialogue. If not, simply sit back and enjoy the skill with which bits and pieces of old-timey Batman and Superman flicks have been stitched together to create something new.
