During a press roundtable at New York Comic Con, "Gotham" actress Erin Richards talked about the odds of her villainous character Barbara ever earning redemption.

On the topic of redemption, possibly in a future season, Richards said that would be "nice." "I think the fans sort of want her to have a baby with Jim at some point because then Batgirl comes out," said Richards. "I personally think that right now, it's so much fun to play this darkness and there's so much to explore inside that darkness. And also I'm having so much fun watching Jim and Leslie; I think that relationship is a really strong one and a much better one for him right now than what Barbara was. It's nice to see redemption, but I don't know how we'd achieve it right now."

While chatting with Entertainment Weekly at NYCC, "Legends of Tomorrow" showrunner Phil Klemmer spoke to the role humor plays in the spinoff series.

"We just sort of found when you combine this eclectic group of heroes and villains, and you put them in the thrilling and preposterous conceit of being on a time-traveling spaceship, the tone kind of has to match the amplification of the characters and the tone," said Klemmer. "Our show, it's funny to me. The only way to leaven a team trying to save the world and an immortal bad guy who destroys it is by having really funny character moments. You can't put these eight guys in a room without cracking jokes, you know."
