Now moving past the days of its pilot, Fox’s Gotham has slowly been building itself into a formidable television force, especially this week, where it delivered its most well constructed and acted episode of the season. Now with a full 22-episode order for the rest of the year, all eyes are now turning to the Batman Rogues Gallery to see who will fill the extra 6 episodes that must now be scripted. However, while there are many, there’s one character we already know that’s made the cut, and now thank to EW, we have our first look at him.
Pictured above is one Nicholas D’Agosto as Gotham’s Harvey Dent, a/k/a the man that will one day come to be known as Two-Face. According to the outlet, Gotham’s dent is characterized as a “bright, charming, idealistic Assistant District Attorney whose sole mission is to eradicate the crime and corruption that has poisoned Gotham. Handsome, warm, and engaging, Dent is appealing, energetic, and full of light and life, even while taking on the worst Gotham has to offer. Although he will one day serve as the white knight Gotham needs so badly, Harvey Dent also gives us a fleeting glimpse of the hideous villain he will become — Two-Face.”
Based on that description, it sounds like Gotham’s Dent will have much more in common with his Dark Knight counterpart than his Batman & Robin version – we can probably thank the Green Lantern Corps for that one. Seriously though, as we watch Robin Lord Taylor’s Penguin slowly rise through the ranks of Gotham’s criminal underworld, it’s going to be interesting to watch that journey paralleled on the white knight side of the law with Harvey.
Gotham airs Mondays at 8/7c on Fox.
