The next time we see Ben Affleck’s Batman, he might be locked up.

Alice in Wonderland references throughout Gotham Season 2 tipped off that the Mad Hatter might be on his way, and it seems our star took a slight detour through The Walking Dead. Fresh out of the Wolves, Benedict Samuel joins Gotham Season 3 as its iteration of Jervis Tetch, the villain underneath the Mad Hatter’s signature look.
Gotham already dove deeper into Batman lore to introduce the Court of Owls in Season 2, but we won’t see the nefarious order truly spread their wings until Season 3 arrives this fall. As such, the first Comic-Con 2016 poster for Gotham’s Season 3 return has arrived, bringing a whole new set of masks to the city.
As you’ve seen in the trailers, Ben Affleck’s Batman makes an appearance in Suicide Squad, which makes sense given that A. It’s a DC Comics movie and B. It features The Joker — you can’t exactly have a movie starring Batman’s arch-nemesis without including Batman himself. But exactly how does the Dark Knight fit into David Ayer’s super-villain team-up?
Gotham already dwelt deep enough in the comic world that few were surprised to see Jada Pinkett Smith’s Fish Mooney return in Season 2 from a watery end, but less surprising is that Fish would exert her newly-cultivated influence on Season 3. Gotham bosses confirm as much, as a new Season 3 photo sees Fish making a notable entrance.
FOX’s Gotham has always seemed to crib from Batman mythology far ahead of Bruce ever donning the cowl, but rarely do we see imagery plucked from even the Dark Knight’s worst nightmares. New Season 3 set photos reveal the kind of crazy new villains tearing across Batman’s future stomping grounds, looking almost right out of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns.
This week, an interview with Bryan Cranston made the rounds in which the actor compared the new Power Rangers movie to Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. Baffling as that analogy may seem, it’s far from the first time that we’ve heard an actor, filmmaker or producer compare a forthcoming project to Nolan’s Batman films — something that’s become shorthand for “gritty reboot.” Here, we’ve collected a brief history of the many, many, MANY times that people have compared their films to Nolan’s Batman. As you can imagine, most — if not all — of these things were nothing like those Batman films.
Now that confusion over Jamie Chung’s Gotham Season 3 role has passed beyond the Vale, we’re getting a first look at Vicki’s aunt palling around with Jim Gordon. See Ben McKenzie and the future Valerie Vale as Gotham Season 3 shoots on the streets of NYC!
It wasn’t terribly surprising that Gotham decided to course-correct one of its more bizarre villain adaptations into a recognizable Poison Ivy for Season 3, but with the casting of Maggie Geha, things are about to get weird. Find out how li’l Ivy Pepper ends up a 19-year old woman with the full Gotham casting description!
Gotham has been curiously opaque with its Season 3 casting of Bat-reporter Vicki Vale, first describing the character as “Valerie,” where now it seems the truth was somewhere in the middle. Once Upon a Time alum Jamie Chung has landed the Gotham Season 3 role, but with one significant twist on the Vicki Vale we know.
