Though we did get a somewhat obscured glimpse of the character already via these previously released stills, a batch of images from the set of season 2B of Fox’s Gotham give us a proper look at House Of Cards actor Nathan Darrow as classic Batman baddie Mr. Freeze in all his… glory?
To be fair, there’s not a whole lot of ways that such a distinctively OTT-looking character can be faithfully adapted without resorting to a bit of camp – but this will no doubt conjure not-so fond recollections of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s much-maligned take on Freeze from Joel Schumacher’s Batman And Robin.
Whatever you may think of Gotham‘s take on this icy antagonist, one thing is for sure: this marks a radical departure from the previous villain incarnations we’ve seen on the show, and may well herald the way for more fantastical Bat-foes such as Clayface and Killer Croc.
Gotham returns with all-new episodes on February 29, when we’ll be reintroduced to Wayne Enterprises cryogenics engineer Victor Fries, who continues on his path to take up the freeze gun after the death of his beloved wife, Nora (Kristen Hager).
