David Zayas cast as mobster Sal Maroni in 'Gotham'

Add one more villain to the list: EW has confirmed that David Zayas of Dexter fame has been cast as Sal Maroni in Fox’s upcoming Gotham. Deadline first reported the news.

In Batman lore, Maroni is a self-made crime boss who starts from the bottom and works his way up to the second most powerful mobster in Gotham City, nipping at the heels of mob boss Carmine Falcone (to be played John Dorman in Gotham). Ultimately, Maroni is the man responsible for District Attorney Harvey Dent’s transformation into the villainous Two-Face. The character was most famously  portrayed by Eric Roberts in The Dark Knight.

Ben McKenzie talks 'Gotham': 'He can't just put on a cape and fly off'

During his first day on the set of Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham, star Ben McKenzie sat in a 1970s-era Chrysler and had a moment of doubt.

This was his first scene for the production playing Det. Jim Gordon, and it was a very simple one — McKenzie merely had to drive the car up to Wayne Manor. But suddenly, the former Southland star felt overwhelmed. “I’m sitting behind the wheel, and I’m thinking, ‘This is crazy, this is crazy. What am I doing? This is nuts. I’m never going to be able to pull this off,'” he recalled. Thankfully, the moment passed, “and it all went great.”

Below McKenzie talks about diving into the Batman universe and shooting the fall’s most highly anticipated new series, which follows a superpower and gadget-free cop responsible for stopping Gotham’s increasingly theatrical array of villains. In this prequel world, Bruce Wayne is still just a kid, and Gordon’s first assignment is investigating the mysterious murder of his parents. READ FULL STORY

Exclusive: 'The Cape' and the subversive secrets of NBC's new superhero drama

In the new superhero drama The Cape premiering this Sunday on NBC, David Lyons plays an honest cop named Vince Faraday living in a crooked metropolis terrorized by a masked villain named Chess (True Blood’s James Frain) and freakish thugs like the reptile-skinned Scales (X-Men: The Last Stand’s Vinnie Jones). Vince is a family man, too, and he shares with his son a passion for a comic book superhero named “The Cape.” When he’s framed for murder and accused of being corrupt, Vince goes underground and finds safe harbor among a group of circus performers/not-so-bad bank robbers that go by the knowingly threatrical handle “The Carnival of Crime.” They hook him up with a seemingly magical cape that allows him to fight crime in Palm City (with assistance of the mysterious anti-corruption crusader Orwell, played by Summer Glau) and hopefully clear his good name as the superhero that both he and his son love, and in this way, weekly adventures will ensue.
