Joker fans can’t get enough of charting every facet of Jared Leto‘s transformation into the Clown Prince of Crime for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, but what of Gotham’s take on Batman’s most famous foe? Rest assured, lone fan of Gotham, we’ll get a more formal Joker origin story early on in Season 2 this fall.
FOX’s Gotham still has a few in the tank for Season 1, but already Season 2 has an eye toward future Batman villains to feature in its carousel of pre-origin story origins. Find out what Bat-baddies will feature into the next round of Gotham this fall, as well as which existing characters will grow closer to their comic characters!
It’s been a good long while since we’ve had anything (positive) to say about FOX Bat-prequel Gotham, but with Jim Gordon, baby Bruce and all the rest getting ready to return on April 13, the latest trailers finally seem to push Edward Nygma’s proto-Riddler off the deep end into full-blown super-villainy.
Just as FOX’s Gotham begins to lose a major character with no place in DC comics (or really even the show anymore), a Fox-y new player steps in.

FOX’s Gotham detects its 18th installment in “Everyone Has a Cobblepot,” as Gordon re-teams with Harvey Dent (Nicholas D'Agosto) to investigate police corruption, while Fish Mooney locks wits with the deadly Dr. Dulmacher (Colm Feore), and Bruce deals with the aftermath of Alfred's shooting.
FOX’s Gotham detects its 17th installment in “Red Hood,” as a string of bank robberies brings citywide attention to a masked criminal group, while Alfred suspects something amiss about his old friend's return, and Fish lays eyes on her mysterious captor.
FOX’s Gotham detects its 16th installment in “The Blind Fortune Teller,” as Gordon investigates a murderous feud between circus performers and a certain jokester, while Fish Mooney attempts to negotiate her release, and Bruce brings accusations to the Wayne board members.
Monday’s ‘Gotham’ installment formally introduced us to “The Scarecrow,” but much bigger pieces of Bat-lore may swing into next week’s “The Blind Fortune Teller.” Not only do the first photos and footage reveal the famous Flying Graysons in action, but so too might we catch a glimpse of that jokey rogue on everyone’s (red) lips.
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ recently revealed that an accelerated Joker origin would arrive before the Bat-prequel series' first finale, the upcoming “Red Hood“ introduction seeming a likely target, but the Clown Prince of Crime may arrive as soon as next Monday’s “Blind Fortune Teller.” Will ‘Shameless’ star Cameron Monaghan don the purple suit and makeup?
