Two major bits of casting news related to TV series based on comic properties.
First up, Jaimie Alexander will reprise her “Thor” role as Asgardian warrior Lady Sif in the currently filming fifteenth episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”.
She marks the first super-powered character from the films to guest star, and the first non-SHIELD agent character from the films to appear.
On the DC side, the rumor of actor Donal Logue playing Jim Gordon in Fox’s upcoming Batman prequel TV series “Gotham” turned out to be false, but Latino Review firmly believes Logue is very much in the series.
They now say that he’s up for the role of Detective Harvey Bullock, a blunt and aggressive cop and 40-something man who mentors the young Gordon in the pilot. Robert Costanzo memorably voiced the role in various animated incarnations of “Batman”.
