While it’s not quite the epic crossover we could hope for, Michael Chiklis will be joining Gotham during season 2 this Fall as GCPD Captain Nathaniel Barnes. Of course Chiklis had previously played Ben Grimm in Fox’s original Fantastic Four films.
“[Barnes] lands on the GCPD like a tornado,” “Gotham’s” producers tell the outlet, “ripping out the dead wood of Gotham’s police force. He is a law and order zealot; unafraid of making enemies – on either side of the law. For Gordon, Barnes is a hero and a mentor, someone with whom he can share the burden of heroism. Captain Barnes proves himself to be a strong ally to Gordon… but one day he will make an equally powerful enemy.”
Gotham returns to FOX on Monday, September 21.
