Fans will remember Vicki Vale as Bruce Wayne’s love interest in the 1989 Tim Burton Batman film, and now she’s being brought to the small screen. A report from TV Line seems to have confirmed the character for season 3 of Gotham:
“There’s also the recurring role of an ambitious young journalist named ‘Valerie’ – which we’d like to think is casting-call code for Vicki Vale, though her late-20s age range makes her markedly older than Master Bruce.”
We’ve seen Fox take liberties with the classic Batman characters, so I’m sure they’ll find a way to meld their take on the character in with the rest of those already in the series. Additionally, the show is looking to cast villains; one who “learns people’s secrets and manipulates them to do his bidding” and a girl “who uses her sexuality to entrap men”. It sounds like Poison Ivy could potentially return? It may be a stretch, because she was young in her first appearance, but it’s never stated how large the age gap is between her and Bruce.
