Lucius Fox is coming to Gotham! He will be played by Chris Chalk, who was in the 2013 Oscar-nominated movie 12 Years a Slave. He will appear in episode 21 later this season, with an option to return in Season 2.

Lucius Fox is Wayne Enterprises’ resident tech genius. In a corporation shadowed by nefarious dealings, Fox emerges as a moral beacon for young Bruce Wayne. His desire to help Bruce uphold Thomas Wayne’s legacy eventually will earn him a spot as one of the boy’s most important confidants.

Lucius Fox was most recently played by Morgan Freeman in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy.
