FIRST LOOK: Alexander Siddig as R’as al Ghul {VIDEO}

It’s here! Our first look at Alexander Siddig as R’as al Ghul on Gotham, and he looks incredible! Watch this introduction video and meet me on the other side.

I don’t know a lot about the Bat’verse – the recent, mythology heavy movies are a bit on the grimdark side for me –
but I do know that R’as al Ghul is an ambiguous character who is both villain and mentor for Bruce Wayne. Looks like Sid is having fun playing with that ambiguity. Did anyone else get chills when he said that Ra’s wants to “get Bruce to cross a line that he should never cross”? Looking forward to his debut on Monday!

The two-part season finale of Gotham airs Monday, June 5 at 8/7c on FOX.
