Gotham Casts Mr Freeze

Gotham faces a chilling future, and that’s snow joke. The big freeze is coming and it could mean a new ice age. James Gordon? Hah, he couldn’t catch a cold, let alone a villain as cold-hearted as… Mr Freeze.

 

Mr Freeze

 

Oh, hang on. This is Gotham, not The Flash with Captain Cold and his neverending terrible puns (although most of them are nicked from Arnold Shwarzenegger’s Mr Freeze in Batman And Robin, to be fair). Gotham’s Mr Freeze is bound to be no joke for GCPD. He does, after all, have the potential to be the most tragic villain in the Batman universe.

Gotham’s producers have cast House Of Cards’ Nathan Darrow in the recurring role of Victor Fries aka Mr Freeze. Victor begins as one of Gotham’s preeminent cryogenics engineers, whose wife, Nora, who has a terminal illness. Victor’s love for Nora knows no bounds, and as her condition worsens, he goes to extreme measures to figure out a way to freeze her before she dies. This harrowing journey leads to his transformation into the Mr Freeze.

Darrow played Frank Underwood’s bodyguard Meechum on the multi-award-winning House Of Cards, and will soon be seen as Andrew Madoff in the HBO film Wizard Of Lies opposite Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer.
