Leslie Thompkins Coming to Gotham?

1354274-lesliethompkinsxTVLine’s latest “Ask Ausiello” article shared a small tidbit on a new character that could be coming to Gotham.


Question: Any news or spoilers on Gotham? I’m hooked after only three episodes and I’m curious what’s ahead. —Eric F.


Ausiello: A better question is who’s ahead, and the answer is… Dr. Leslie Thompkins. DC Comics’ aficionados know her as Bruce Wayne’s Godmother, but I hear Gotham is tweaking Batman lore a smidge by also making her a love interest for James Gordon. (Note to Barbara Kean: Don’t shoot the messenger.)


While no other information has been released, this description would definitely be a departure from the character as depicted in the comics.
