Ben McKenzie chats with Gold Derby editor Matt Noble.
McKenzie reveals: "We're doing episodes right now that I think are really great which involve the Scarecrow, or should I say, someone who has a lot of influence on who will become the Scarecrow. And we’re getting into the interesting observations about the psychology of this particular villain." As for his favorite ovearll villain he says, "I love the Riddler. I’ve always loved the Riddler."
On whether the series will ever show flash-forwards of these villains, Batman or Gordon himself, McKenzie is unsure but has a preference. He says, "I would spend time in the present, our Gotham’s present. Not only would I not jump forward and give flash-forwards, I also wouldn’t jump back and give flashbacks to where Jim was. I prefer to stay in the present; that’s my storytelling narrative taste."
