Things in Gotham are about to get a little more strange. Thanks to TV Insider, we’ve gotten our first look at B.D. Wong in character as Hugo Strange, who he’ll be portraying in season two of the Fox drama. A noteable fact about Strange, the creepy DC villain: not only does he run Arkham Asylum, but he tends to let his mad scientist side run unchecked and enjoys experimenting on the inmates. How delightfully deranged! Also, to avoid confusion: Wong is portraying Dr. Strange on Gotham, which is a DC property. In terms of Doctor Strange the Marvel movie, Benedict Cumberbatch will be doing the honors, while Benedict Wong plays Wong. Got it? Great!Wong had an ominous message for fans wondering what his character could be up to this season:
“What [he] is doing in there is indeed very, very bad. Imagine the worst thing someone might do. Then multiply that by 10.”
He also plays coy on what this could mean for Oswald “Penguin” Cobblepot (played by Robin Lord Taylor), Arkham’s latest tenant:
“He is never the same from the moment he walks through the door.”
Season 2 of Gotham certainly seems to be living up to its tagline: “rise of the villains”. The series returns Monday, February 29th on Fox.
