Gotham season 3 trailer
A new trailer has arrived for Gotham season 3’s next batch of episodes. It promises us that ‘the city will be torn apart’, and it features an awful lot of villains.
Here it is, followed by the previous promo clips…
Gotham returns to Fox, in America, on Monday the 24th of April.
Gotham season 3 Ra’s al Ghul
In other news: he’s already appeared in the Nolan-verse and the Berlanti-verse, and now the mighty Ra’s al Ghul is heading for Gotham.
This will mark another recasting and rebooting of the Ra’s role, with Alexander Siddig of Game Of Thrones, Peaky Blinders, Clash Of The Titans and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine taking on the part, stepping into the shoes of Liam Neeson and Matt Nable.
“I really tried to be as ambiguous as possible,” Siddig told Digital Spy about his performance. “I’ve only done two episodes and as an actor in episodic television, I don’t know what the next script is, so I’m confronted with finding a way to play something really dark in a more ambiguous way.”
“I really tried to get him so ambiguous that he’s almost liquid – that was the way I thought about it,” Siddig added. “You’re really not sure if he’s good or bad – no one knows whether he’s a demon or a saint, or a ghost, that’s a line from the script.”
Previously, Comic Book Resources reported that “Ra’s will be introduced as Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) pulls the veil of the Court of Owls to discover the man pulling its strings. Leader of the League of Shadows, the enigmatic and powerful Ra’s al Ghul will quickly prove himself to be Bruce’s most dangerous adversary yet.”
It’s interesting that they’re going with the Nolan-favoured ‘League Of Shadows’ name here, instead of the comics-accurate ‘League Of Assassins.’ Perhaps Ra’s’ true nature will be kept under wraps for a while, explaining why Siddig is keeping things ambiguous.
