FOX’s Gotham has a long road before its Season 3 premiere in fall 2016, in spite of some early teases for Season 3 villains, and it seems another famous Bat-character willl be making a live-action return. The series is officially casting for the role of Bat-journalist Vicki Vale, but how might the character partake in Bruce Wayne’s early years?

It was a busy Season 2 finale for FOX’s Gotham, wrapping up the battle against B.D. Wong’s Hugo Strange, while introducing the Court of Owls, pitting Mr. Freeze against Firefly, and somehow managing to work a Fish Mooney-mob showdown atop the setup for Season 3. The final moments opened a pretty big can of worms for future villains as well, though at least one sounded deliberately familiar to fans.
We’re just hours from Gotham wrapping up a season that brought us Bat-villains like Hugo Strange, Mr. Freeze and Clayface, but will Season 3 delve even deeper into the prepubescent Dark Knight’s rogues? Producers confirm some rumored additions like the Mad Hatter and more members of the Court of Owls, perhaps even Vicki Vale.
Following its initial orders, FOX didn’t waste much time setting up a schedule for the 2016-17 season, including similar event series bows as 24: Live Another Day and The X-Files. This time around, 24: Legacy and Prison Break will get the big midseason debuts, while newer shows like Lethal Weapon will bow on Wednesdays.
FOX’s Gotham has gone full on Bats–t in its second season, and now a fan-favorite from the first year will help the final Season 2 episodes feel right at home. Jada Pinkett Smith returns as Fish Mooney in new photos and trailer for “A Legion of Horribles,” along with what could be our first look at the Court of Owls.
It’s safe to say that Gotham has been playing on a different field of late, when the same episode can see Hugo Strange sending Mr. Freeze after a mutant claw girl created in part by Thomas Wayne, and now another villain has arrived to dispense some wrath. Or … rise. Whatever Gotham villains are doing with subtitles these days. Anyway, here’s Clayface!
FOX’s Gotham gave up the goods a few weeks back with on-set photos of a certain Season 2 villain’s return, now reborn as Batman antihero Azrael, but the real thing is much cooler in context. See for yourself, as Gotham previews Azrael’s rise in a new full-length trailer, costume and all.
FOX’s Gotham has officially confirmed that the Bat-prequel will deliver a third season of early origins for the Caped Crusader and his ilk, but Season 2 is far from finished. Joining the ranks of Hugo Strange and Mr. Freeze, we now know that muddy Bat-baddie Clayface has been cast.
FOX’s Gotham has delved even deeper into Batman’s beginnings in recent weeks by the additions of Mr. Freeze, Hugo Strange and more, while li’l Bruce Wayne and Gordon’s journeys are only just beginning. FOX has officially renewed its Bat-prequel drama for a third season, airing this fall.
FOX’s Gotham may have beefed up its Bat-cred to introduce Hugo Strange and Mr. Freeze, but may always have something of grey (er, green) area when it comes to proto-Jokers. We’ve seen one laughed off already, but new photos from an upcoming hour feature Orange is the New Black star Lori Petty looking an awful lot like the Clown Prince of Crime. Harley too!
