Beware the court of owls, that watches all the time, ruling Gotham from a shadow perch, behind granite and lime. They watch you at your hearth, they watch you in your bed, speak not a whispered word of them or they’ll send the talon for your head.

It looks like the Court of Owls is coming to the Gotham. The TV Series, that is.

And we may have already seen the beginning of it. Possibly. The new series, which kicked off on Monday night, introduced Theo and Tabitha Galavan, played by James Frain and Jessica Lucas. Now we know Lucas is the show’s version of the villain Tigress, but it seems that she may have a bigger role in the city after she told CBR that she was on “a mission of revenge” and had “a long family history in Gotham City.”

Executive producer and showrunner Bruno Heller, has talked about the chances of seeing this dark, ancient chapter in Gotham’s history on the show: “The Court of Owls is deep, deep, deep Gotham mythology… We are absolutely going to explore that world down the line. Looking at the longevity of the show, we have to hold some cards back, we can’t just throw all of the elements, all of the story at once.

“The long arc of the show is Bruce Wayne’s journey of discovery down into the depths of the physical and meta-physical world of Gotham. The Court of Owls is a brilliant conceit that will absolutely be part of our storytelling. I just won’t tell you when.”

The Court of Owls first appeared in the New 52 comics but instantly became a big part of the Bat-mythos. An ancient, secret society that is rooted deep in the history of Gotham, they control everything that happens and even claim to have let Batman get away with his nighttime activities… until it became a problem. Oh, and we know young Bruce Wayne was aware of the legend of the Owls too…

It is certainly conceivable that The Court might exist in Gotham; in fact, it SHOULD exist… and we look forward to seeing it happen. Those masks would give Eyes Wide Shut a run for its money…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
