In a recent interview with Comic Book Resources, Gotham writer Bruno Heller revealed that the Red Hood will be appearing later this season. When asked about costumes, and their potential use in the show, Heller made the surprising reveal:
…there’s going to be an episode that involves the Red Hood, which picks up that strand, the costume strand, and sort of gives a kind of philosophical base, if that’s not too pretentious a word. Why costumes? What’s the power of costumes? What’s the power of a mask? All of that groundwork will be laid sort of culturally for that side of the DC Universe before we start rolling into the more spectacular spandex type of deal.
In a show that is already suffering from massive prequelitus, and what many are claiming is an over abundance of characters, the addition of the Red Hood may either be amazing or a colossal failure.
Gotham airs Monday’s on Fox.
