Gotham continues to be on quite the roll on Fox. It's resonating with both comic book fans and mainstream audiences in a way that comic book adapted shows haven't seen in quite some time. Creator and Executive Producer Bruno Heller talked with CBR about the show and where fans can expect it to go.

During the interview, Heller was asked about whether the rest of the season would be "costume-free," Heller responded:

there's going to be an episode that involves the Red Hood, which picks up that strand, the costume strand, and sort of gives a kind of philosophical base, if that's not too pretentious a word. Why costumes? What's the power of costumes? What's the power of a mask? All of that groundwork will be laid sort of culturally for that side of the DC Universe before we start rolling into the more spectacular spandex type of deal.

Heller mentions that since the show was picked up for a second season, they are always looking towards the future and they are in no hurry to have characters jump into costume. Does that mean that Red Hood won't appear until the second season or will we see him towards the tail end of the first season? From the sounds of it, Red Hood may be at the end of the first season, but at least we know for sure he'll be in the show.

What do you want out of Gotham when it comes to Red Hood?
