FOX’s Gotham finally managed to turn Cameron Monaghan’s Jerome into a real Joker, but the joke may be on us. Producers are already walking back the show’s new green-haired menace, and won’t actually call him “The Joker.”
We’re well-attuned to the bonkers Bat-reality of Gotham at this point, especially now that emerging villains have an actual proto-Batman to contend with. According to star David Mazouz, the clown prince of Batman’s rogues gallery will even make a genuine Gotham debut, and not as the character we think.
Arrow may finally give us the Bat-crossover we’ve dreamed of, as Season 6’s “Tribute” shocked us all with an official name-drop of Bruce Wayne himself. An actual Batman appearance is tricky, but does The Dark Knight actually occupy the Arrow-verse? We look at all the evidence from Arrow, Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow alike.
We know better than to take everything Gotham stars say as gospel, but Batman may really begin in Season 4. Watch Bruce grapple, intimidate thugs, lie to Lucius Fox and do everything a Bat-kid does with an extended trailer for the fourth season.
The “Pax Penguina” over Gotham is breaking as Season 4 gears up for next week’s premiere. Our first photos and synopsis have arrived, unleashing a fully-formed Scarecrow over the city, while Ra’s al Ghul lurks in the shadows and Penguin finds his grip on the city loosening.
Gotham’s chickens (bats?) are officially home to roost, now that Season 4 has begun picking up old threads. Not only is Scarecrow terrorizing Gotham in a new Season 4 trailer, but Bruce’s proto-Batsuit gets a few fresh looks as well.
