Gotham season 3 promo shows a man with spikes running down the center of his head and down his back and shoulders.
He sure looks like a version of Killer Croc, whom producers John Stephens and Ken Woodruff have confirmed would be coming to Gotham this season.
Fox has also released the synopsis for the new season, and from the looks of it, the madness just begins with newcomer Mad Hatter. There will be monsters and some familiar faces, all of whom are ready to contribute to the new dark side to Gotham—as if it wasn’t dark already.
Indeed, the seeds for Killer Croc’s arrival may have already been planted, in the form of Hugo Strange’s Indian Hill laboratory. “One of the things we wanted to accomplish with Indian Hill and with Hugo Strange’s work there was to, one, show that these skills, these powers were possible and that they existed in the world of Gotham,” said Woodruff at the same event. “
And, to really make the patients that came out of the Indian Hill the precursors of the inspiration for some of the more canonical characters that we see, [such as] Killer Croc, Solomon Grundy so that Indian Hill was the bridge to those villains, in other words.”
Of course, Oswald “Penguin” Cobblepot (Robin Taylor) is still there. We see a new glimpse of Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith). Barbara Kean (Erin Richards) and Tabitha Galavan (Jessica Lucas) seem to be bent on raising a different kind of hell.
It’s going to be an interesting season for Gotham, especially since Bruce Wayne is planning something where “there’s no turning back” for him.
In any case, even with early versions of Killer Croc and his Suicide Squadmate Harley Quinn set to drop by this season, we can probably rest assured Batman’s rogues gallery is deep enough to continue powering Gotham for quite some time.
Gotham returns to Fox Monday, September 19th.
