The second BIG villain casting for Gotham in the space of a week has just landed on our desk. With Mr Freeze being cast first (here) it’s now the turn of the oft-rumoured for the show, Hugo Strange.
USAToday has reported that Jurassic Park and Jurassic World’s BD Wong, who played Dr Henry Wu, has been cast as the Batman villain: “Wong has been cast in the recurring role of Hugo Strange, a brilliant professor and psychiatrist tapped to head up Gotham City’s notorious Arkham Asylum.
“He’s hired to help the city’s criminally insane, but Strange has a nefarious streak as well: The professor is also conducting experiments on inmates and testing extraordinary abilities in order to create superhuman folks for Indian Hill. The underground Wayne Enterprises black-ops program was introduced in this week’s episode of Gotham as the secretive place where a badly burned Firefly (Michelle Veintimilla) was taken after being captured by the GCPD.”
We think this is an inspired piece of casting and proves that Gotham has really found its feet this season and we can’t wait to see more characters and where they’ll take the show as this season continues to unfold.
