FOX’s ‘Gotham’ keeps right on stumbling through its first season, and while Batman won’t strike terror into anyone’s hearts for at least a decade, the prequel drama has recruited one of its biggest ‘Heroes’ yet. Milo Ventimiglia will drop by ‘Gotham’ for a multi-episode arc as a major serial killer, cryptically-titled “The Ogre.” Yeah. That’s right. “The Ogre.”
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ detects its 14th installment in “The Fearsome Dr. Crane,” as Gordon and Bullock investigate a mysterious killer preying on those with phobias, while Maroni discovers the secret of Penguin's alliance with Falcone.
It’s been some time since we’ve heard anything on the development of TNT’s proposed ‘Titans’ series, based off the DC Comics Teen Titans, but at last pilot casting may have begun. That said, the leaked lineup for the pilot script may tease some major changes to the comic team, as well as some surprising Batman inclusions.
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ will set up yet another Batman villain with tonight’s “The Fearsome Dr. Crane,” but it seems as if the most famous Bat-baddie of all may have his arrival scheduled even sooner than expected. Find out how ‘Gotham’ plans to introduce the Joker before season 1's end, straight from the executive producer himself!
It seems very, very unlikely that Joss Whedon will return for ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ and it’s already been rumored that ‘Captain America’ helmers Joe and Anthony Russo are Marvel’s top picks to take over the two-part finale. Whedon recently expressed how difficult and exhausting it was to make ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ and before he even agree to return for the sequel, there was another superhero film he considered making instead: a female Batman movie.
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ has taken stabs at multiple characters of Batman lore in the past few weeks, from The Electrocutioner to Arnold Flass, but this coming Monday may see the most prequel-y origin yet. Meet Scarecrow’s pappy in a new trailer and first photos from ‘Gotham’'s introduction to “The Fearsome Dr. Crane!”
ScreenCrush editor, comic-book lover, and undiagnosed masochist Matt Singer is systematically watching every single (American) comic-book movie ever made in the order in which they were released. This week in The Complete History of Comic-Book Movies: The Dark Knight makes his first appearance on the big screen):
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ detects its 13th installment in “Welcome Back, Jim Gordon,” as the murder of a witness turns Gordon's suspicions on the GCPD itself, while a captive Fish seeks to reclaim her throne from Penguin, and Bruce looks to reconnect with Selina.
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ spends most of its time setting up major DC villains, rather than feature them outright, but at least one of Batman’s future baddies will come out of the box to play. ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ and ‘Thor’ star Colm Feore will stop by Batman’s beginnings as the villainous Dollmaker, but could the character have any connection to the ‘Arrow’ villain of the same name?
