Earlier this summer Gotham director/producer Danny Cannon said that he was meeting with Gotham creator Bruno Heller and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns to pitch the idea of tellling Mr. Freeze’s origin story. It must have been a strong pitch, because Mr. Freeze is now confirmed!

Cannon (a former CSI producer), revealed the Mr. Freeze news in an interview with Digital Spy:

“Without giving too much away – because I’m not allowed to – the great thing about working on a CSI procedural show for so long was we worked with so many experts – specialists in each field,” he explained. “There’s a lot of things I picked up along the way.

“My first conversation with [showrunner] Bruno Heller about the villains in this show is always that they need to be very credible and relatable and the science behind them needs to be real.

“So I had a couple of stories that I’d held onto – real, true stories – and one of them just related to Mr Freeze. I know a real way to create an origin story.”

Are you excited to see Mr. Freeze’s origin story told on Gotham?
