The Joker is Coming to ‘Gotham’ Sooner Than You Think
Gotham executive producer Bruno Heller was initially hesitant to bring main Batman villain the Joker into his prequel series too early.
Now? Well he could really care less you impatient jerks.
“We’ve said you’re going to be waiting a bit longer for it, but this is America — nobody wants to wait.” Heller joked of the villain appearing before the end of Season 1.
“So, we will scratch the surface of that story, yes. But just scratch it — a little tap on the door.”
Heller revealed that audiences will also begin to see Edward Nygma’s descent into villainy as the Riddler in this second half of the season.
The show is also set to introduce the parents of Dick Grayson (future Robin) as well as Batman villains including the Scarecrow and the Red Hood in the coming weeks.
