One of Gotham's most feared crime bosses, Sal Maroni, head of the Maroni crime family, has joined the roster of Fox's Batman prequel Gotham, being played by David Zayas! The actor has previously appeared in The Expendables and Dexter and will now play Maroni in the show's first season later this year.
In the comics Maroni was bitter rivals with Carmine Falcone (played by Tom Wilkinson in Batman Begins) and has been repremanded often by the Dark Knight. He was also responsible for the accident that lead to Gotham DA Harvey Dent becoming the villain Two Face, a story arc that Fox's showrunners may pursue.
What do you think of the casting choice, is Zayas a good fit for Maroni? What sort of role would you like to see the crime boss have in the show, should he play a part in the origin of Two Face? Sign off your thoughts below!

"Gotham" is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), "Gotham" follows one cop's rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.

I thought Eric Roberts was spot on as Maroni in The Dark Knight.

GREAT CASTING!

"there's no batman in this"

that's kinda the point

"superman didn't have a costume in smallville"

that was kinda the point

"the new 52 isn't 100% exactly like before new 52"

that's kinda the point

Angel? You son of a bitch backstabber.
ComicsBornAndBred - 8/1/2014, 11:01 AM
Isn't Maroni Italian??? It's great casting though. Good actor
BigMikeReviews - 8/1/2014, 11:01 AM
so is everyone meant to be 80 years old when Bruce finally becomes Batman? There won't be much physical opposition.
yossarian - 8/1/2014, 11:06 AM
Puerto Rican is the new Italian.
Bread - 8/1/2014, 11:07 AM
They're going to adapt The Long Halloween. I'm calling it right now.
IUsedToBeThecase - 8/1/2014, 11:08 AM
Why, why, WHYYYYYYYY.

@yossarian

A fanabla! Fongoul!
MrChuff - 8/1/2014, 11:12 AM
@BigMikeReviews - exactly. This show already reeks to high heaven.

If I watch this steaming stool of a TV show at all it'll be in the same way I watch animals mauling people on YouTube. It's nasty, sometimes unintentionally amusing but ultimately I switch off because its just awful.
DrKinsolving - 8/1/2014, 11:13 AM
@Bread

How are they gonna adapt Long Halloween without Batman? I'm still not sold on this "Gotham with all Batman's villains but No Batman" idea

They may have substantial time lapses in between seasons to age Bruce more rapidly, producers will want to ensure maximum ratings by bringing in the one factor that people will want to watch the show for: Batman.
Knightfall225 - 8/1/2014, 11:20 AM
Great casting. He was one of the best characters in Dexter.
DrunkenNukem - 8/1/2014, 11:21 AM
Its stupid anyway....at least Smallville had Clark Kent as the lead character

Should've went with Frank Vincent (The Sopranos)


Dedpool - 8/1/2014, 11:31 AM
@ Astrozombie - YES!!!!
Darktower - 8/1/2014, 11:36 AM
WTF.. Batista??
DrKinsolving - 8/1/2014, 11:52 AM
@Gusto

Lemons - 8/1/2014, 11:52 AM
LOL Batista. Good actor, but isn't Sal Maroni an Italian mob boss? Perhaps they can change his name to Sal Barron so he's Puerto Rican.
