Gotham At Comic-Con 2016: Cory Michael Smith Talks Nygma’s Season 3 Arc

Gotham TVO Cory Michael SmithFox has come a long way with its DC Comics series, Gotham, the story of Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) before he became Batman, the backstory of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) before he becomes Gotham City’s commissioner of GCPD. It’s also the origin stories of Bruce’s many future villains such as The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), The Joker, Catwoman (Carmen Bicondova), Poison Ivy (Maggie Ghea), Mr. Freeze (Nathan Darrow), Hugo Strange (B.D. Wong) and more.

Last week at San Diego Comic-Con, TV Overmind participated in the Gotham Press Room with several outlets to chat with the cast and crew behind the show to get some insight into what is coming in Season 3. Cory Michael Smith, who plays Edward Nygma a.k.a. the future Nygma on the series, was one of the great talents we got to speak with as he teased what is coming up for Nygma in Season 3 of the Batman prequel.

Highlights of the interview:

-Where and how much crazier Nygma’s path will be this year as he has merged his two personalities into one, leading to The Riddler.

-What we can expect to see of Nygma at the start of the season when he gets out of Arkham Asylum.

-Whether or not we will be seeing Cory Michael Smith full-out as The Riddler in the series or more specifically, this season.

-How he prepared for the role of Edward Nygma/Riddler before he started the show.

-Whether we will see Edward’s parents one day on the show and how he would feel about Jim Carrey (who played The Riddler in Batman Forever) playing his father.


Gotham Season 3 begins on Monday, September 19 at 8/7c on FOX. Stay tuned for more roundtable videos of the cast and producers in the next few days right here at TVOvermind.
