Gotham May Bring in Proto Versions of Killer Croc, Solomon Grundy, and Harley Quinn. After seeing Suicide Squad on the big screen, we may be seeing them in the small screen when they visit Gotham somewhere down the line when the Fox drama returns.
During the Television Critics Association summer press tour this week, Gotham EPs Ken Woodruff and John Stephens laid out their plans for the third season of the Batman prequel series. The plans, according to Variety, included an introduction to villain Solomon Grundy as they tie his origins into the Indian Hills experiments conducted by Hugo Strange. The talk shifted over to possibly bringing in some of the Batman villains from this year’s Suicide Squad into the show. In regards to that, the EPs expressed the difficulty of doing that after being introduced in the movie, but they haven’t ruled out having proto versions of Killer Croc and Harley Quinn into Gotham for a possible fourth season.
After bringing up a fourth season, we can expect to see a change during the second half of the new season regarding The Joker. The writers indicated that The Joker’s growing influence on Gotham will expand after Jerome’s death. Stephen quickly teased: “It’s about developing the myth of The Joker, just like we’re developing the myth of Batman… There are underground movements where they talk about Jerome.”
So Gotham has some tough times ahead for the GCPD. What do you guys think of these developments?
