One of the biggest pieces of news from SDCC may have come from an interview with TV Line. For after the Gotham panel at San Diego Comic Con, Ben McKenzie, who plays Jim Gordon on the popular show said this:
“Yours truly might become another iconic DC character,” McKenzie answers when asked for a piece of unknown information to conclude the interview. As a hush falls over the entire room, the actor quietly adds, “… in the middle of the season. At the end of the season. He might take on the persona of a different character.”
“That’s an exclusive!” McKenzie exclaimed following a shocked reaction from the interviewer and his castmates. “And I might have just gone too far…”
This will surely cause speculation about who he will become. Batman? Someone like Batman? Something else entirely? We’ll find out when Gotham returns this September.
