On tomorrow’s new episode of Gotham, Hugo Strange’s experiments will culminate in the birth of Azrael, who rises from the ashes of Theo Galavan’s death.
“[Hugo] Strange rather brilliantly brainwashes me into thinking I am an 11th century knight,” explains Frain, who returns to “Gotham” as Azrael on May 2.
“We’re getting closer to the world of super-villains,” adds Ben McKenzie. “It’s still grounded in reality, albeit a bizarre reality, but it allows for the villains that Jim [Gordon] is fighting to gain the upper hand.”
A new featurette shows just how this latest villain was created. It also features stars BD Wong, James Frain and Ben McKenzie, give their input on what drives Azrael, his tireless pursuit for Gordon, plus a lot more!
Coming this Monday: Gordon and Bruce question Professor Strange about Project Chimera, which leads Strange to send the newly resurrected Galavan to confront Gordon. Meanwhile, Nygma investigates who Professor Strange is in the all-new “Wrath of the Villains: Azrael” episode of GOTHAM, Monday, May 2.
Synopsis for Gotham:
The good. The evil. The beginning.
The origin story continues on GOTHAM: RISE OF THE VILLAINS and the stakes are higher than ever, as Super Villains more ambitious and depraved are introduced, and a realignment of alliances shakes up the fight for power in Gotham City.
Detective JIM GORDON (Ben McKenzie) and the ethically questionable veteran Detective HARVEY BULLOCK (Donal Logue) remain at the forefront of the fight against crime in this dangerously corrupt city. While confronting Gotham’s most notorious criminals, Gordon’s moral compass begins to waver. But he is taken under the wing of NATHANIEL BARNES (Michael Chiklis), a law-and-order zealot who is unafraid of making enemies. Meanwhile, Gordon continues his quest to gain the trust of the young BRUCE WAYNE (David Mazouz), who is on a clear path towards the man he is destined to become, after discovering his father’s deepest secrets, with the help of his trusted butler and mentor, ALFRED PENNYWORTH (Sean Pertwee) and newfound ally at Wayne Enterprises, LUCIUS FOX (Chris Chalk).
Gotham airs Mondays at 8pm of Fox.
