GOTHAM Director Is Working On Making 'Mr. Freeze' A Character In The Show
During an in-depth interview with Hitfix, the director of Fox's Gotham pilot, Danny Cannon, reveals that he's working on "winning" Geoff Johns over to get the icy villain an introduction in a future episode of the show.
Fox's Batman prequel series will introduce quite a few villains from DC Comics canon such as early incarnations of The Riddler, The Penguin, Catwoman etc, but one character who wouldn't seem to fit in with this more grounded batch of baddies is Mr. Freeze -- still, that's exactly who director Danny Cannon (Judge Dredd is hoping to introduce at some stage! During an interview with Hitfix Cannon is asked what future event would make him want to get back behind the camera again after directing the pilot.
"I have a big pitch with Bruno about the Mr. Freeze character, whose origins are uncertain. If I can win Geoff Johns over and if I can win Bruno over, then I look forward to the moment where that character can be realized."
Obviously thoughts of a live-action Freeze conjure unwelcome images of Arnold Schwarzenegger being sent to the cooler in Batman And Robin, but there is potential in the character to make a fairly compelling transition from page to screen. Is Gotham the right platform though? Thy are using a young Poison Ivy I guess. There's much more from Cannon at the link below.
