Gotham had a panel at WonderCon this weekend and some of the cast, which included David Mazouz, Camren Bicondova, Cory Michael Smith, along with executive producer Danny Cannon appeared to answer questions about what to expect on the show coming up on its season finale.
After the announcement of Alexander Siddig as Ra’s Al Ghul, Danny Cannon was asked what other villains fans can expect to appear on the show. Cannon’s answer was that they could expect anyone to appear, so long as the villain isn’t being used in one of the DC films.
“If they’re not making a movie about them right then, we’re good. But they are making movies.”
David Mazouz discussed Bruce Wayne’s upcoming arc as the season nears its end.
“Bruce will go through a major transformation in these last eight episodes of the season, and it will result in him making a decision that he’s been searching for, for a very long time. It will be the most important decision of his life. He is going to live out the reason he was created, and it will have very bad consequences for Bruce—catastrophic consequences. I don’t want to give away too much, but it’s not going to be pretty.”
Other fun information that came out of the panel include Cory Michael Smith’s promise that his version of The Riddler won’t be donning a Jim Carrey-like costume.
“He’s got some nice threads…I’m not going to be in a onesie, but yeah—there’s a costume.”
But in all seriousness, Smith says that Nygma’s struggle is that he was trying to be a good person, but that it’s no longer possible.
“The great difficulty here is that Edward, his opportunity to be a good person and live a normal life is passed. He knows that his destiny is to wreak havoc. Now is the time.”
Cannon also teased that there could be a team-up between Selina, Barbara, and Tabitha on Gotham.
“I always love that concept of a female-only gang. I think that’s something we’re really going to explore. We’re heading towards, is there somebody else behind the Court of Owls? We’re still unraveling what the city of Gotham is, how the city was created, who’s in charge. Things will get a lot worse before they can get better in the city of Gotham.”
Gotham will return on April 24 at 8/7c on Fox.
