The details are still pretty scarce, and we still don’t have very much in the way official confirmation on anything about the Gotham TV series. We know that we’ll be seeing the origins of many of Batman’s villains, not to mention Batman himself, but the latest rumor pertains to just which menace will be showing up first.
According to El Mayimbe of Latino Review, the first baddie that’ll be making an appearance on the show is none other than Oswald Cobblepot, who’ll obviously transition into The Penguin who we all know and love.

While this is still just a rumor, it shouldn’t surprise anyone if The Penguin were to show up and be one of the first and primary villains on the show, given that his usual role in organized crime would constantly put him in direct conflict with the young Detective Jim Gordon. In fact, I’d think we would be seeing Roman Sionis and the Falcone Crime Family involved in the show’s plot right off the bat, as they’d fit nicely in the typical police procedural role.
So, what do you folks think about this rumor? Are there any villains that you’d like to see in Gotham that would fit this type of show? Let us know!
