Last we looked in on Gotham Season 3, Batman’s prequel stomping grounds were looking pretty Mad and monstrous, and the first footage seems to confirm as much. Meet Valerie Vale and a slew of monsters new and old as Gotham Season 3 releases its first official trailers!
Alice in Wonderland references throughout Gotham Season 2 tipped off that the Mad Hatter might be on his way, and it seems our star took a slight detour through The Walking Dead. Fresh out of the Wolves, Benedict Samuel joins Gotham Season 3 as its iteration of Jervis Tetch, the villain underneath the Mad Hatter’s signature look.
Gotham already dove deeper into Batman lore to introduce the Court of Owls in Season 2, but we won’t see the nefarious order truly spread their wings until Season 3 arrives this fall. As such, the first Comic-Con 2016 poster for Gotham’s Season 3 return has arrived, bringing a whole new set of masks to the city.
As FX began moving forward with Noah Hawley’s X-Men universe TV series Legion, many wondered what happened to FOX’s own project based on the Hellfire Club. That series has apparently cooled, while Burn Notice vet Matt Nix and Bryan Singer develop a new X-Men series for FOX with close ties to an underground mutant group.
Gotham already dwelt deep enough in the comic world that few were surprised to see Jada Pinkett Smith’s Fish Mooney return in Season 2 from a watery end, but less surprising is that Fish would exert her newly-cultivated influence on Season 3. Gotham bosses confirm as much, as a new Season 3 photo sees Fish making a notable entrance.
FOX’s Gotham has always seemed to crib from Batman mythology far ahead of Bruce ever donning the cowl, but rarely do we see imagery plucked from even the Dark Knight’s worst nightmares. New Season 3 set photos reveal the kind of crazy new villains tearing across Batman’s future stomping grounds, looking almost right out of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns.
Now that confusion over Jamie Chung’s Gotham Season 3 role has passed beyond the Vale, we’re getting a first look at Vicki’s aunt palling around with Jim Gordon. See Ben McKenzie and the future Valerie Vale as Gotham Season 3 shoots on the streets of NYC!
It wasn’t terribly surprising that Gotham decided to course-correct one of its more bizarre villain adaptations into a recognizable Poison Ivy for Season 3, but with the casting of Maggie Geha, things are about to get weird. Find out how li’l Ivy Pepper ends up a 19-year old woman with the full Gotham casting description!
Gotham has been curiously opaque with its Season 3 casting of Bat-reporter Vicki Vale, first describing the character as “Valerie,” where now it seems the truth was somewhere in the middle. Once Upon a Time alum Jamie Chung has landed the Gotham Season 3 role, but with one significant twist on the Vicki Vale we know.
Of the many proto-Batman figures FOX’s Gotham has introduced in two seasons, perhaps none has seemed so bizarre as the pilot’s “Ivy Pepper,” a young figure implied to be the series’ take on Poison Ivy, and occasionally reappearing in minor roles. Now, it looks like Season 3 will course-correct to introduce a real Poison Ivy, aged up and recast.
