Harley Quinn's Origin Story Might Be Introduced on Fox's 'Gotham'

Share

Gotham wants to make all of your villain wishes come true.

According to The Movie Network, executive producer Ken Woodruff explained at the Gotham session at the Television Critics Association press tour this week that "Indian Hill that exists in Gotham, that's the bridge to these villains like Killer Croc..."

"Suicide Squad", David Ayer's entry into the budding DCEU, just hit the previous week and brought with it a new take on the superhero genre by instead focusing on a ragtag bunch of indentured criminals forced to barely function as an off-the-books wetworking special ops group.

Call me insane, but I wonder if it might just be the blonde female character that is 1) insane, 2) already hung around with Gotham's proto-Joker Jerome, and 3) has no narrative objective on the show other than wandering around and being emblematic of the show's utter unwillingness to give the tiniest shit to setting up an even barely recognizable Batman universe.

As for the character of proto-Killer Croc, portrayed by Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje on the film, Stephens said that the small screen version will not necessarily mirror the same path of his arc in the movie. "And we'll be seeing a character, perhaps not this season but in times to come, who can be a forerunner of Harley Quinn which will be fun".

Season three of Gotham will introduce a few new villains into the mix, including Killer Croc and a transformed Poison Ivy, but perhaps the biggest anticipation surrounds the inclusion of Harley Quinn - or at least a "prototypical" version of her character, as they called it during the announcement.

So no, still no answers as to whether Jerome is the damn Joker or not.

"We really imagined developing the myth of the Joker at the same time as we develop the myth of Batman. In the course of this year, we're going to see how the cult of the Joker... is going to extend and deepen and change". There are underground movements where they talk about Jerome. "Every year we look at what piece of Batman we can put in Bruce this year. This year we're going to see him starting to build the playboy persona that he'll fake in the future", Stephens said.

Woodruff also added that Poison Ivy's transformation is not just on the physical level, but on an emotional one as well. In Season 3, they'll be putting their villainous genius together and starting a siren club in the city. "That mystery of how the creation of Solomon Grundy actually happens will be revealed when we get deeper into the Court of Owls at the end of Season [3]".
