When the drama returns February 29, we'll finally meet Mr. Freeze (Nathan Darrow) and Hugo Strange (B.D. Wong). The show's producer Bruno Heller chatted with TV Guide about how the Batman prequel series will portray the villains.
Here's what Heller told TV Guide about Mr. Freeze -
“We’re taking it back to the roots of the origin story,” said Heller with regards to Dr. Victor Fries. “It’s about him and his wife before he became a bad guy, how he became a bad guy. It’s very much a story of the heart rather than a story about technology and super-villainy. It’s a doomed romance. It will make people cry.”And as for the psychopathic Hugo Strange, Heller offered this info -
“[Hugo Strange] is very much not a ‘mwa-ha-ha’ villain. He is a man filled with the joys of science. He doesn’t think of himself in any way as a bad person. He is the essence of scientific progress and the joy of hope for the future that science promises. He shows us how even that sensibility can be warped into something evil if wrongly used.”
