New ‘Gotham’ Season 2 Photos Reveal Our First Costumed … Well, Someone
Yesterday’s first clip of Gotham Season 2 had things looking more or less the same, despite what series star Ben McKenzie says about an improved approach, though the full photo set from the premiere bring with them an intriguing new figure. Are citizens of Gotham finally suiting up, costume, cape and all?
Briefly visible in the initial trailer, a mysterious costumed figure appears in the official photo release of Gotham Season 2 premiere “Damned if You Do,” a heavyset man with hockey pad-type armor, a purple cape, and black helmet clearly meant to evoke the Batsuit. The character also appears subservient to James Frain’s menacing Theo Galavan, though whether the figure serves as henchman, or general anarchist remains to be seen.
Oh, and there are other folks in the above Gotham gallery. Hey, other folks! Get costumes, and we’ll talk.
Elsewhere of Gotham Season 2, we know the second run will make series regulars of Drew Powell’s Butch Gilzean, Chris Chalk’s Lucius Fox, Nicholas D’Agosto’s Harvey Dent, and Morena Baccarin’s Dr. Leslie Thompkins. Producers will incorporate such Bat-baddies as Clayface, the Mad Hatter, Mr. Freeze, Hugo Strange, Tommy Elliot, and potentially even the Court of Owls, while early episodes will serve as a “pre-embryonic” (sigh) origin story for the Joker.
In addition to Natalie Alyn Lind’s Silver St. Cloud and True Detective star James Frain’s role as sinister philanthropist Theo Galavan, Gotham Season 2 will also feature Michael Chiklis as Captain Nathaniel Barnes, Jessica Lucas as Galavan’s sister (and future Tigress) Tabitha, along with Dustin Ybarra as a homicidal cannibal. Victoria Cartagena and Andrew Stewart-Jones have also been downgraded from their series regular roles of Renee Montoya and Crispus Allen, while you can check out the first photos here.
Gotham Season 2 will return on Mondays this fall, so take a look at the teasers above and below while we wait.
