During a recent interview with Den of Geek, Josh Brolin revealed Warner Bros. has reopened discussions on a new Hunchback of Notre Dame film starring himself as Quasimodo.
We’re talking about doing Quasimodo again. It’s something I’ve been developing for a long time. It’s something I was going to do with Zhang Yimou. But then [the studio] didn’t approve him at the time, and so it kind of fell apart. We’re revisiting the idea of doing that as bigger film, and I love that...Having experienced Deadpool and The Avengers, I’m like why would you not want to take advantage of the technical proficiencies now? This cutting edge time? To be able to do Quasimodo climbing up Notre Dame. I love the idea of that

Robin Lord Taylor hyped the “extra apocalyptic” season four finale of Gotham in a recent interview with Comic Book.
You know, it’s pretty much apocalypse. We’ve all sort of decided that’s where Gotham City is going after the wrath of Jeremiah. That’s so exciting to all of us because then, in an apocalyptic scenario, all of the power structures shift. Certain people fall out, some people come back. You know, it’ll be interesting to see where Oswald lands in all of that, as it will be interesting for any of the other characters. I think, as if Gotham wasn’t apocalyptic enough, we’re going extra apocalyptic, you know?
