Gotham Has A New Riddler

By Drax Largo on April 2nd, 2014

Cory Michael Smith has been cast as the new Riddler in the straight-to-series Commissioner Gordon TV prequel Gotham.

Edward Nygma will introduced in the Bruno Heller-scripted pilot as a forensics expert who helps Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) and James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) in a murder investigation. He prefers speaking in riddles to giving straight-forward answers, which pisses off the two detectives to say the least. ¬†Of course, you know it’s going to go all downhill from there.

Putting together its future Rogue’s Gallery of DC Comics villains, it was previously announced that Gotham will feature Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot (The Penguin) and Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle (Catwoman). At least in the early-going, Jada Pinkett Smith’s Fish Mooney is the baddest of the Gotham bad guys.

In addition, Gotham stars Sean Pertwee (Alfred Pennyworth), Zabryna Guevara (Captain Essen), Erin Richards (Barbara Kean) and David Mazouz (a young Bruce Wayne).

Gotham is set to air this fall.
