Fox’s Gotham has certainly taken a lot of liberties with the characters from the Batman universe. Some they have seem to stick to traditional takes and others have been complete failures. We have seen Riddler, Mr. Freeze, Hugo Strange, Mad Hatter among others that let’s be honest are showing up in Gotham way before Batman is even a concept.
Bruce Wayne, played by David Mazous, has already encountered many of these villains on the show, including Jerome. We have seen them interact various times on the show already. There is an interesting saying that “if it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, then it must be… a duck”. The latest version of Jerome that he has faced was one that resembled Scott Snyder’s version with the torn off face. There are many clues pointing to him eventually becoming the Joker, especially with how well they him and Bruce work together on screen.
But there has been an interesting development, via the Discussing Film and their podcast The Mutuals Interviews, their guest David Mazous makes an eyebrow-raising remark.
“He’s not the Joker, that’s all I’m saying. He’s definitely the inspiration for the Joker and the way that the Joker comes into the show is one of the most brilliant things Gotham has ever done.”
It sounds like he is saying that at some point in the near future, we will, in fact, see the introduction of the Joker, maybe by the name Jack Napier? Before we lose our minds at the notion of seeing the Joker let’s remember that he also said that at the end of season 3 of Gotham we would see the introduction of Harley Quinn, which was quickly shut down by the producer John Stephens.
Do you think someone else should be brought in as The Joker? Should they stick with Jerome? Let us know in the comment section below!
Fox’s Gotham is set to return to television sometime this spring.
