GOTHAM’s Oswald Cobblepot has scored his biggest victory to date at the end of season 1: his mentor-turned-enemy Fish is (seemingly) dead.

And with Fish gone, “he’s running things” in Gotham, Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald/Penguin) told reporters in the video below. “He set out to accomplish that in the first season, got it. He’s the king of Gotham, king of the underworld at the moment…we’ll see how long he holds on to it.”

Since there are new villains heading to GOTHAM in season 2, the struggle for power will likely get a bit more complicated than Oswald anticipated.

Check out the video for more from Taylor, including the characters he hopes to interact with in season 2, why the “honeymoon is over” with Jim, and more…

Comments Off on GOTHAM: Robin Lord Taylor on the Power Counterbalance Between Fish and Penguin

GOTHAM is undergoing a change of power.

Fish took a big risk by “kidnapping” Liza, a woman Falcone was very fond of (whom Fish had planted in Falcone’s life). Unfortunately for her, Penguin informed Falcone it was all a ruse, and Fish’s life is now in danger…and Penguin suddenly has more power than ever.

“As Penguin becomes more powerful, Fish does not,” Robin Lord Taylor (Penguin) explained in the video interview below. “They are enemies, they are counterbalances to each other…we’re going to see that change, which I think is really exciting. But, also, in terms of delighting in it, what I like about it is I think Penguin does have a certain fondness for her…he owes her a lot.”

Check out more from Taylor about his take on what’s going on with Fish and Penguin, as well as his character’s ambitions…

GOTHAM is not only the origin story of Ben McKenzie’s James Gordon — the series is also diving into how the infamous villains developed.

Two of the iconic “bad guys” that GOTHAM introduces in tonight’s pilot are Oswald Cobblepot (AKA The Penguin) and Edward Nygma (AKA the future Riddler). And while they are in different stages of their villainous evolution, there are some fun nods to what’s in store for them in GOTHAM’s opening hour.

I spoke with Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald/Penguin) and Cory Michael Smith (Edward/Riddler) about taking on these characters, the fan attention the show is already getting, and more…
