Could Mr. Freeze be Making a Trip to Gotham?


We already know that the likes of The Penguin, Catwoman, The Riddler and Poison Ivy will be seen in Fox's upcoming series "Gotham," but now director Danny Cannon might have revealed another potential villain whose origin will be told in the series.

Speaking with HitFix about scenes in the first season he's excited about seeing, Cannon replied: "I have a big pitch with Bruno about the Mr. Freeze character, whose origins are uncertain. If I can win Geoff Johns over and if I can win Bruno over, then I look forward to the moment where that character can be realized."

This is far from a confirmation on the character's appearance, but it is interesting to note that they're considering bringing in some of the other villains into the fold of the series.

Typically written as a more sympathetic villain, Mr. Freeze's origin is tied to cryogenics and a horrible accident in trying to cure his disease-stricken wife. Though it's gone through a number of changes over the years, the character's origin has always resulted in him needing his trademark suit. How do you think they'll handle Mr. Freeze's origin on "Gotham" should they use him?

"Gotham" arrives this fall on Fox from executive producer Bruno Heller. The cast includes Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney, Sean Pertwee as Alfred, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman, and Zabryna Guevara as Captain Sarah Essen.
