The first photos are out of South African-born, New Zealand and U.S.-based actress Lesley-Ann Brandt as Batman comic villain Larissa Diaz (aka. Copperhead) in FOX’s “Gotham” via The Wrap. Copperhead makes her debut in tonight’s mid-season finale episode on FOX.
In the comics, Copperhead is an assassin known for suffocating his victims with his suit’s tail. The 2013 video game “Batman: Arkham Origins” changed the sex of the character to female, and now “Gotham” is following suit. However, this incarnation doesn’t have a wacky snake suit, instead she’s a straight up killer who suffocates her enemies using complex grapples.
