FOX has released a new promo “The Freeze Is Coming” for the American drama series “Gotham” season 2 teasing the introduction of the chilly Batman supervillain in the show. So, who is this character actually? Well, it is one of the Batman’s earliest and most difficult supervillain – Victor Fries/ Mr. Freeze (Nathan Darrow).
According to Screen Rant, the initial half of the “Gotham” season 2 concentrated on the dangers faced by the eponymous city by Theo Galavan (James Frain) and the Order of St. Dumas. The portion of the series also made the spark for season 2’s “Rise of the Villains” themed episodes, which would be aired in 2016 when the show returns, by introducing Professor Hugo Strange (BD Wong) and the several super-villains.
The source also reported that Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze would play a role in the season 2 of the TV series. Indeed, at the end of the Fall finale episode “Worse Than a Crime,” the character made a short appearance.
The source further added that Kristen Hager (Being Human) would play the role of Nora Fries, Victor Fries’ terminally-ill wife. However, it is still a secret whether this character features any importance in the series. As of now, we could judge that either Professor Strange or Mr. Freeze would be the “big bad” guy in the show.

Victor Fries “absolutely has an agenda,” and “we’re telling the Freeze story in classic style, from its origins,” told Bruno Heller, the creator and show-runner of the “Gotham,” to TVLine. It seems that the show’s version of Mr. Freeze would be a “more sympathetic and multi-faceted” one and would be relatively faithful to the original character.
