I assume that the Gotham TV show will use a mix of well known characters and lesser known so this list will follow that structure. The television show is set in a Pre-Batman Gotham so villains like the Joker most likely won't be around just yet.
The first character I want to see is pretty obvious. Jim Gordon is said to be the main character in the TV show so of course he has to be in it. Jim will start off as a cop working for the GCPD. Jim is one of the only honest cops in the GCPD and even once took down one of his cop allies for breaking the law.
Another character I want is the district attorney turned villain , Harvey Dent AKA Two-Face. Harvey was the youngest district attorney ever to serve Gotham City. He forged an alliance with Jim Gordon and the GCPD in order to get rid of the the Falcone crime family. The TV show could lead to Harvey becoming disfigured and becoming the Villain Two-Face and Jim having to deal with one of his best friends turning against him.
Penguin should definitely be in the Gotham TV show. having him in the show wold also include his famous IceBerg Lounge in Gotham City.Penguin has been involved in several criminal enterprises, from being an illegal boxing promoter, and a prominent criminal on the Gotham black market. In the TV show I hope Penguin starts off by selling weapons and providing other such services to Gotham's underworld rather than dealing with things hands on.
Another Big Time character who needs to be apart of the show is The Spectre. In 1940, Jim Corrigan , a New York City cop was attacked by mobsters. Jim was shoved into a barrel filled with cement where he was then thrown into the river, where he later choked on liquid cement and died. God decided to have Corrigan merge with the Spectre entity and become the newest incarnation of the Spirit of Vengeance. In the TV show maybe Jim Corrigan can join the GCPD as a detective who secretly kills the people who get away with murder (watch the Spectre short video on YouTube if you haven't seen it yet).
A gang of Gotham criminals who rotate men under the guise of their leader in order to help protect the identity of the gang's true leaders if a job goes wrong. The Joker was said to be the leader of the Red Hood Gang in the comics so it would be great to see him before he was Joker on Television.
The next couple of villains I want to see in the TV show will add a more sinister tone. Victor Zsasz would make a perfect serial killer in the show. He would give the GCPD a good case. As if his secret random phone calls aren't enough to scare people, his scars all over his body will. Victor was once the head of his own international company and had amassed a large personal fortune in addition to his family's wealth. His parents died in a boating accident, sending him into a deep depression. He then turned to gambling. One night, he ended up in Iceberg Lounge, where he gambled everything he owned and ended up losing it all to the Penguin. His origin would make a good connection to Penguin and the Iceberg Lounge. He would definitely be a fan favorite.
Arnold Wesker, the ventriloquist, is an especially interesting villain because many do not actually see him as one, but a victim of his dummy, Scarface. Wesker is simply a regular man who suffers from a realistic disorder and uses a dummy to personify it. He himself truly believes that Scarface is alive as his multiple personalities make it impossible for him to distinguish what is truly happening. Wesker believes that Scarface is telling him what to do and is the brains behind his killings. The Ventriloquist would make an interesting villain for the GCPD to investigate and scare the sh-t out of viewers.
The Question should also have a part in the TV show. He shouldn't be apart of the GCPD but instead wok by himself. He would leave clues for the GCPD to help them on some of their cases. DC may even go all out and make the Question Renee Montoya so she could be apart of the GCPD but secretly be the Question. Anything is possible.
I really really want to see the Riddler in this show!! I don't care if he is the man pulling the strings or the main villain. I just want him to drive the GCPD crazy. Hopefully if they use him in the TV series he can still be used in the solo Batman movies. I want to see the Riddler finally done right for once. I want a dark and crazy sadistic Riddler. So far only the Arkham games have done him right.
Well these are the characters I want to be in the new TV show. I may make a blog about the people I want to play them but that's only if someone actually wants to read it lol. Comment your thoughts or my list of characters and your list of characters below if you want to.
