Birth Of Batgirl A Possibility On ‘Gotham’

As anyone who watches the FOX series, Gotham, knows, Jim Gordon and Barbara Kean have taken a serious detour from their comic book counterparts.  However, during a panel earlier today at Wizard World New Orleans, Gotham star Ben McKenzie had some interesting things to say on the subject.

McKenzie teased the audience saying there would be a lot of surprises in the second half of the current season, including some elements of the traditional mythology that will eventually come into play.

When asked about the fact that their comic book counterparts have children, one of them being Barbara Gordon (Batgirl), McKenzie said, “That is something we definitely hope to address in the life of the show.”

The second half of the season, which starts on February 29th on FOX, will feature Paul Reubens as Penguin’s father, Mister Freeze, and more.
