The Joker is coming… and not just in Suicide Squad.
In Season 2 of Gotham we’ve already been told to expect a much more Joker-centric plot line, and now executive producers Danny Cannon and Bruno Heller have dropped some hints about what we’ll see from the character next season: “[The Joker is] an ideology, he’s not just a single villain. We’re doing the origins of an ideology,” says Cannon.
But isn’t Jerome (above) Joker? Well… “He’s locked up in Arkham right now. We get to meet him again and see what he’s blossomed into. Over the first episodes, we’ll see how his ideology spreads.”
Heller added: “I’m confident that fans of The Joker and fans of that aspect of the Batman series will not feel cheated but will feel like something’s been illuminated.”
Now, what could this mean? Will Jerome turn out to be the victim of some nerve toxin? Perhaps we’ll see others suffer like this… is there a man responsible for it, perhaps? Or will someone – possibly Jerome – become the Clown Prince of Crime ultimately?
Whatever happens, we look forward to seeing it unfold…
Gotham is back on Sept 21st
