GOTHAM: James Frain's 'Theo Galavan' May Actually Be "A Very Famous DC Villain"

James Frain is great at playing villains, so it was no surprise to see him join the cast of Gotham as incoming Season 2 antagonist 'Theo Galavan'. However, we may have underestimated just how pivotal his role will be. Hit the jump for more details!


Speaking to TV Guide, Gotham executive producer Danny Cannon elaborated on the integral role James Frain's 'Theo Galavan' will have in the 'Rise of the Villains' during the show's sophomore season. Previously described by Deadline as a "billionaire industrialist" with a "centuries-old vendetta", Cannon claimed that Galavan will initially present himself as the savior of Gotham City.

"Theo Galavan arrives in Gotham as a prodigal son returning. He comes from a very wealthy family with ancient roots in the building and foundation of Gotham. It takes a while for us to understand why he came back to Gotham and what his plan is, but it's an insidious one, obviously. He's a little bit like the Great Gatsby and Dracula coming to town with money and influence and charm and trying to bend to Gotham to serve him."



However, it seems Galavan may have an even more sinister agenda at hand. "This season is about how one man will unleash and empower the villains and make them understand that they are more powerful than the people fighting against them," Cannon announced, "They are the pioneers for Gotham. They are the ones who will change things because with chaos and destruction is the only way you can build. You can't rebuild a city without first destroying it."

To make matters even more intriguing, Cannon revealed that Frain's character is in fact the "origins of a very famous DC villain". Based on what we've already heard, many believe Galavan could be Gotham's very own 'Ra's Al Ghul'. However, given that the Demon's Head featured so prominently on Arrow last season, it seems unlikely DC would allow him to be re-used so soon. So if not Ra's, then who? Leave us your thoughts and theories in the comments below!

Gotham returns Monday, 21 September on FOX.
