GOTHAM And PENNYWORTH Add Two Major Villains As Jason Flemyng And Jaime Murray Board DC Prequels

X-Men: First Class star Jason Flemyng has landed a lead villainous role in Pennyworth, while Dexter alum Jaime Murray is set to play someone pivotal to Jim Gordon in Gotham season five. Take a look...

It's been revealed today that Jaime Murray has been tapped for a recurring role in the fifth and final season of Gotham. She's set to play Theresa Walker, a character who "emerges as Jim Gordon's principal nemesis in the season, who comes to Gotham harbouring a dark secret about her past." 

Walker doesn't appear to be a character from the comic books so it will be interesting seeing how she's squeezed into this final batch of episodes, especially as it will be adapting "No Man's Land."

Murray is best known for starring in Dexter and recently wrapped recurring roles in both Once Upon A Time and The Originals. You may also remember her from Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, so she has plenty of genre experience!


Over in Pennyworth (which is essentially a prequel to Gotham), Jason Flemyng is going to play the villainous Lord Hardwood. Once again, he doesn't appear to be a character from the comic books and is described as an "upper-class Englishman; he’s cultured, urbane, brilliant and supremely sure of himself. His sadistic, cruel nature has a veneer of charm."

While you'll probably remember Flemyng from X-Men: First Class, his recent credits include The Missing, Jamestown, and The Journey. What do you guys think of this casting news?
