“Gotham” showrunner Bruno Heller says they have no plans on holding back when it comes to introducing a variety of familiar faces in the Gotham City of the new FOX drama series. Speaking 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 also admits that some of the characters from the comic would be a challenge to render on screen, but that probably won’t stop them from 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.”
Speaking of “Gotham,” new photos are now out from the show’s second episode entitled “Selina Kyle”. Head to Spoiler TV to check out those.
