There are several reasons why the two-hour season three finale of Gotham will be a massive one next week. One of those reasons is the debut of Alexander Siddig’s debut as the iconic Batman villain Ra’s Al Ghul, leader of the League of Shadows. The debut of Ra’s next week will be a setup for a much larger arc in the fourth season which will premiere this fall.
FOX has released a new featurette for the season finale which gives us the first look at Siddig as Ra’s, with Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) tracking him down. In the featurette, Siddig talks about his interpretation of Ra’s on the show and his excitement of joining the Gotham Universe. We also hear from Mazouz along with Erin Richards who plays Barbara Kean as the two actors share their thoughts on getting to work with Siddig.
