Just days after Fox renewed the DC Comics-based series for a fourth season, the network has unveiled its first look at Michael Chiklis’ Captain Barnes as the Executioner (via ComicBook.com) in an upcoming episode of Gotham.
Originally a by-the-book cop and mentor to GCPD’s Jim Gordon, Barnes was later infected with the Alice Tetch virus that brought out a darkness — and, evidently, a Mad Max-inspired garb.
Making his debut in next week’s episode, “Light the Wick,” the episode description for the installment reads, “Gordon discovers the weapon the Court of Owls will use to destroy Gotham, which leads him on a dangerous path as he tracks it down. Meanwhile, Kathryn (guest star Leslie Hendrix) and Temple Shaman (guest star Raymond J. Barry) reveal their next move to Bruce, and Ivy comes to Selina’s aid.”
Starring Ben McKenzie as Detective Jim Gordon, Gotham airs Mondays at 8 pm ET/PT on Fox. The series also stars David Mazouz as young Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova as young Selina Kyle, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot, Morena Baccarin as Leslie Thompkins, Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney and more.
