Fox’s Gotham isn’t short on budding supervillains, but showrunner Bruce Heller wants to bring even more baddies into the fold. In a recent interview, he confirmed that Hugo Strange and Harvey Dent (a.k.a. Two-Face) would also be making appearances on the series.
But one iconic Batman character who’ll be taking his sweet time showing himself is the Joker. Though previous reports indicated that every single episode of the first season would tease a possible Joker, Heller insisted the reveal will be more subtle than that. Hit the jump to read his comments.

The upcoming Fox prequel series Gotham is packed full of iconic Batman characters. One, however, is conspicuously absent: The Joker. A few months back, showrunner Bruno Heller said the following. “The Joker is the crown jewel of the Batman villains. He will be brought in with great care and a lot of thought.” We now have an idea of what that process might entail.
According to reports, every episode of the first season of Gotham will have a character in it who may, or may not, become the Joker. The first of these is in the pilot, which features a stand up comedian who witnesses a horrific event. Check him out and read more below. Read More »
There’s a new trailer for Fox’s Batman origin story Gotham, featuring James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) strolling to a crime scene, observed by all the new villains in his city. But Gordon’s been away, and now that he’s back in town he starts to realize the enormity of his task — how could he not, when he’s getting the evil eye from half a dozen people in this one alley alone?
Gotham also stars Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, Zabryna Guevara, Erin Richards, Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett Smith, David Mazouz and Camren Bicondova. Early previews of the pilot led to praise being heaped on Taylor for his role as Oswald “The Penguin” Cobblepot, but the episode as a whole was well-liked. We’ve got to wait another couple months to see that pilot (unless you manage to catch it at Comic Con next week) but this new Gotham trailer might tide you over until then. Read More »
