Firefly is coming to Gotham Season 2, but there’s a twist… the Batman villain will be female in this interpretation of the character. Michelle Veintimilla will play Firefly, whose alter ego is Bridgit Pike, in two episodes later this fall, TVLine reports. Here’s an official description of the character:
Enslaved by her brothers, a notorious gang of arsonists, Bridgit Pike is forced into the family business. When she catches the eye of Selina Kyle, the young Cat Woman and the soon-to-be-Firefly team up to put Bridgit’s firestarting skills to good use. But after a deadly encounter with the Pike Brothers, the meek Cinderella is transformed into a vengeful supervillain, hell bent on destroying those who have wronged her.
