Mr. Freeze Will Appear In Season 2 Of “Gotham”
Nathan Darrow, who is known for his role in House of Cards, is set to portray Victor Fries, who later becomes Mr. Freeze, in season 2 of Gotham. This will be the first live-action Mr. Freeze since Arnold Schwarzenegger’s dreadful turn in one of the worst superhero films ever made, Batman & Robin. This December, Victor Fries will be introduced on the twelfth and thirteenth episodes of Gotham’s second season.
According to Heroic Hollywood, the official character description for Mr. Freeze is: “Though ferociously smart and eminently capable in his work as one of Gotham’s preeminent cryogenics engineers, Victor struggles to make meaningful connections with others. The one exception is his wife, Nora (casting TBA), who has tragically fallen ill with a terminal disease. Victor’s love for Nora knows no bounds, so as her condition worsens, he goes to extreme measures to figure out a way to freeze her before she dies. This harrowing journey leads to his transformation into the legendary DC villain, Mr. Freeze.” Adding yet another iconic Batman villain to Gotham is a solid decision for a show that is managing to make the mythology of Gotham interesting, even without Batman saving the day.
Do you think Darrow’s portrayal will do the character justice or are we in for more pain-staking puns?
