Gotham Casts Michelle Veintimilla As Firefly For Season 2



To date. there have been two incarnations of pyromaniac Batman baddie Firefly in the DC Comics (Garfield Lynns and Ted Carson), and now Fox’s Gotham will introduce a third, live-action take on the character for their upcoming second season – but with a twist!

Relative newcomer Michelle Veintimilla (Lifetime’s Those Who Kill) will play a female version of the twisted firestarter named Bridgit Pike in the fifth and sixth episodes. Here’s the official description via TV Line.

Enslaved by her brothers, a notorious gang of arsonists, Bridgit Pike is forced into the family business. When she catches the eye of Selina Kyle, the young Cat Woman and the soon-to-be-Firefly team up to put Bridgit’s firestarting skills to good use. But after a deadly encounter with the Pike Brothers, the meek Cinderella is transformed into a vengeful supervillain, hell bent on destroying those who have wronged her.

Tell us, what do you think of the gender-bending of Firefly? Are you excited to see another take on the character? Let us know by sounding off in the comments section below!

Gotham returns Monday, Sept. 21, at 8/7c
