Camera One July 1, 2014 Share July 1, 2014 My hunch is that the network thought the names Nygma, Kyle and "Ivy Pepper" wouldn't necessarily connect with the passers-by I bet if you went up to 10 people on the street who had seen The Dark Knight Rises, they'd identify Anne Hathaway's character as Catwoman and only 1 would even recognize the name Selina Kyle. That's probably the reason, but it doesn't really bode well if they are interfering already. Comic book fans in some ways are even more picky than novel adherents, so changing the names is sort of an idiotic decision. I suppose they can argue that unlike a movie where we see both the villain and the everyday alter ego, we don't actually get to see the villain so the name has to be more obvious? I still can't really buy that argument. Ivy Pepper isn't even clever. For example, some of the alter ego names on "Once Upon a Time" are at least somewhat a play on the words (like Ashley for Cinderella). Link to comment
