Back in July of last year, it was revealed that Gotham i set to introduce the character of Azrael, with the episode ‘The Son of Gotham’ subsequently making reference to the Order of St. Dumas, the organisation responsible for training the character.
Speaking to Comic Book, executive producer John Stephens has been discussing the introduction of Azrael, stating that they will have a “brand-new twist” on the character.
“In many respects, Azrael will have many of the hallmarks and traits that we know from the comics. But it will have a brand-new twist upon that character; the way we’re going to bring that character into being on our show will be different than anything we’ve seen in the comics. It will be identifiable as Azrael in all respects, just a version of him we’ve not seen before, which is the point of doing these! How can we do the character with a fresh twist?”
Gotham is currently on its midseason break and will return to Fox on February 29th.
