It appears as though The Joker is coming to Gotham! At least that’s what the promo wants you to believe, teasing that Gotham’s next villain is “no joke”. The promo for tonight’s episode, titled “Blind Fortune Teller”, features a young man named Jerome (Cameron Monaghan) being interviewed by Jim Gordon.
So is Cameron Monaghan The Joker? His sinister smile would lead us to believe that it’s possible. The writers have stated early on that they would not introduce The Joker. Instead they would introduce different characters that would possess different characteristics of the Joker…and you would have to guess who it could be. I’d prefer to keep the Joker a mystery, mainly because i’m not a huge fan of bringing Joker into the mix. The show is already crowded as is and is introducing way too many Batman characters too early. If the show runners decide to introduce The Joker, I would hope that they keep his background story a mystery or at least keep it ambiguous. Check out the clip for yourself and let us know what you think!
