Gotham split itself right down the middle between serious drama and campy Schumacher homage, and now with Barbara and a proto-Joker front and center for Season 2, which one would you imagine leads the charge by our first clip? Are you ready to visit Arkham and kick off the “Rise of the Villains?”
Gotham star Ben McKenzie recently promised the second season to improve upon muddled reception of the first, but the latest trailer seems to be clowning around. There’s more Joker camp than ever in a new “Rise of the Villains” spot, and we even get a taste of (sigh) Barbara’s arc to boot.
Batman’s iconic animated series has influenced The Dark Knight’s legacy and vocal talent for decades, but did you know that Tim Curry almost voiced The Joker before Mark Hamill? Or that the animated adaptation created Harley Quinn altogether? You are vengeance, and you are the night, you will enjoy our 18th episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which flies through Gotham City on leather wings for Batman: The Animated Series!
The Killing Joke is one of the more notable entries in Batman comic book history, offering one of the most sadistic versions of the Joker to date. Alan Moore’s book is one of the more divisive among fans, who either love it or despise it, and in further proving their commitment to the darker side of superhero stories, DC is taking The Killing Joke and adapting it…into an animated feature, of all things.
There was a whole lot of wishy-washy nonsense surrounding Cameron Monaghan’s role as Jerome in Gotham Season 1. Was he FOX’s Bat-prequel version of the Joker or wasn’t he? Executive producer Bruno Heller teased the arrival of Batman’s most famous villain in Season 1, but backtracked later to say we would see a “pre-embryonic” origin story of the character in Season 2. But according to a photo posted by Monaghan, we may have been misled — or not. I don’t know. This is getting out of hand.
It’s been a couple of days since you saw new photos of Jared Leto’s version of Joker, which means you probably just now stopped laughing about it (until we see more pics from Suicide Squad, anyway). But here’s something to interest (and maybe frighten) you: special effects master Rick Baker has created his own rendering of Joker, one that is not only great, but kind of unnerving — you know, the way Joker should look. It’s too bad we might never see this version on the big screen.
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 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.
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? We examine the evidence....
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ will take tonight’s installment to set up Bat-baddie “The Scarecrow,” but the biggest tease of all may lie ahead in the coming weeks, introducing the “Red Hood” gang to the future Dark Knight’s streets. Our first photos of the capering criminal gang have arrived, but might they be the seeds of our inevitable Joker arc?
