The last season of Gotham was exciting. We’ve seen lot of colorful characters from DC Comic/Batman universe evolving into great super-villains. However, the next season of Gotham promises to be way more exciting with Solomon Grundy. So, get ready for his arrival.
Butch Gilzean (Drew Powell), a high-ranking figure in Gotham’s criminal underworld worked either with or against just about every notable villain in the city. While Butch was often frustrated by his inability to ascend to the top of the criminal pack, he at least usually occupied a second-in-command-type spot on the organized crime food chain.
While Butch did indeed meet his demise late in season 3, as did many characters on Gotham, death will not be the end for him. As revealed in the season finale, Butch was born Cyrus Gold , aka noted Batman villain Solomon Grundy. Introduced to comics way back in 1944, Solomon Grundy is an imposing brute of a villain that is usually depicted as a literal zombie, although his origin has changed a few times over the many years he’s existed.
Of all the existing characters on Gotham, Butch definitely seems like the best fit to become Grundy, although one wonders if such a transformation was always in the creative plans. Physically, Butch certainly fits the bill of a Grundy type, regularly using his size and strength to intimidate both enemies and underlings while serving in various capacities in the Gotham underworld.
It remains to be seen just how soon into season 4 that Butch will resurrect as Grundy, but when he does, one assumes there will be hell of a revenge for anyone who ever crossed the monster during his previous human life. Of course, it’ll be hard to get direct revenge on his killer Barbara Kean (Harley Quinn may be ?) , as she’s currently deceased too. Still, based on Gotham’s history, it’s doubtful that she stays that way for long.
Mark you calendar, Gotham will return for its forth season run on Sept. 22, 2017
