The third season of Gotham will see Paul Reubens reprising his role as the father of Oswald Cobblepot, the Penguin. Reubens first played the role back in Tim Burton‘s Batman Returns in 1992. Will he still have the name Tucker Cobblepot, or will Gotham take liberties with the name, and more importantly, what will he look like? While we don’t know about the name, we can at least clear up any lingering doubts about how the character will look in Gotham. (more…)

Well the actor himself has now responded to the concept. (more…)

Being as the shows are on separate networks let’s not expect CW’s Arrow and FOX‘s Gotham to ever intermingle, but that won’t stop DC and Warner Bros. from continuing to dominate the television superhero gig. Over the weekend it was announced Ben McKenzie snagged the starring role of Jim Gordon for FOX’s new crime drama. Now four more roles have been cast, and some are extremely noteworthy. (more…)
