'Gotham' season 2 news: Fox adds Eduardo Flamingo to roster of villains


Gotham had another addition to its roster of villains, this time in the form of the gangster Eduardo Flamingo.

As revealed by Variety, Looking star Raul Castillo was cast by Fox to take on the role of Eduardo Flamingo, a hitman that will cross paths with the show’s main star Detective Jim Gordon.

Castillo’s version of Eduardo Flamingo is described as “one of Gotham’s most dangerous hitmen. Killing for him isn’t just a job, it’s an art form. Armed with a spiked chain and an appetite for flesh, this rock-a-billy assassin will prove to be one of Detective Jim Gordon’s (Ben McKenzie) trickiest foes.” He will appear in Episode 9 of Season Two.

Eduardo Flamingo, originally created by Grant Morrison, was part of the eccentric crime gang in the Batman & Robin series called the “Circus Of Strange”, where he was joined by Professor Pyg.

In other news, TVLine revealed that the young Bruce Wayne will be seeing the start of his journey to becoming the Caped Crusader that fans knew he would become one day. What he will discover in the “cave” he managed to open in the season finale will bring to light the real personality of his father, and the real Wayne Enterprises beneath the surface.

“It will cause Alfred to train Bruce, and the development of Batman will start,” shared actor David Mazouz.

As for the relationship of Bruce Wayne and the young Catwoman Selina “Cat” Kyle, it seems that they will still be the same kind of friends that they are for the meantime. “Their relationship is pretty much the same” once they reconnect, Mazouz said.

However, it won’t be long before the young Selina falls prey to the charms of socialite Silver St. Cloud. “Eventually, something will stop Selena from interacting with Bruce,” he added.
