Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller says they have no plans on holding back any of Batman’s rogues’ gallery.
In an interview with Female First, he says: “We haven’t excluded anyone from the mix potentially, but generally what we’re looking at is characters where there is some drama or a story behind how they got to be the way they are. We’re looking for characters who live in the real world of Gotham as opposed to the even more super real world of Metropolis if you like. It’s not about super powers, it’s about super will, if you like. We veer towards those characters who are interesting as people, rather than interesting for their particular power or their particular gimmick or their costume.”
Heller admits that some of the villains from the comic would be difficult to render on screen, but that won’t stop them trying: “There are certainly characters that would be very difficult to put on the screen. That crocodile guy [Killer Croc] is a tough one – although we may go there.”
Personally, I think if Killer Croc could be on the menu, we should definitely get Clayface. Any suggestions of future Gotham bad guys, post ’em below.
