The first look at Nathan Darrow’s take on Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze in Gotham has been revealed.

A description of how the character will fit into Gotham is below:

“In Gotham, Victor Fries is a Wayne Enterprises cryogenics engineer, and like his origin story on Batman: The Animated Series, he’s working to save his terminally ill wife, Nora.”

Also, Darrow is quoted as saying the following on the character:

“Victor has one central intimate human connection, and that’s with his wife. There’s something really, really interesting and vulnerable and difficult about that. Of course, that is threatened by her illness. I will tell you we’re going to see Mr. Freeze do some things we have never seen him do.”

DC fans may feel that Gotham’s Mr. Freeze bears similarities to The Flash’s Captain Cold…

Thoughts on the first look? Are you excited to see Mr. Freeze in Gotham?

The on-going Star Wars: Rebels animated series has officially been renewed for a third season. The third season will begin airing in the second half of 2016.

The on-going second season will wrap up next spring. Taylor Gray, who stars as Ezra Bridger in the series, is quoted as saying the following on what’s to come for his character:

“He’s accomplished a lot over the course of the first season and has found his own family with the rebel group. The one question that’s still unanswered for him is: What happened to his parents? The answer to that will determine what Ezra’s fate is.”

In addition, executive producer Dave Filoni teased a major reveal coming in the mid-season finale (which will air on December 12th). Filoni is quoted as saying the following:

“I’m driving everybody nuts with that on the crew. Only a select group of people have actually gotten to see” the episode’s highly guarded (and apparently epic) final minutes. “The actors don’t even know what happens!”
