We’re still a few months away from the season 3 premiere of Fox’s divisive Batman prequel series, but Gotham executive producer Danny Cannon has shared some very interesting production stills to his Twitter account, teasing the unexpected return of some characters, and the debut of others.
In addition to series regulars Camren Bicondova, Donal Logue, Morena Baccarin and Jada Pinkett Smith, there’s a shot of Michael Chiklis as Captain Nathaniel Barnes, which seemingly confirms that the tough-as-nails copper will make a full recovery from his grave injuries in the season 2 finale. But, it’s the slightly more monstrous faces in the gallery we’re most concerned with.
No doubt results of Doctor Hugo Strange’s Indian Hill experiments, these two creatures will most likely be loose on the streets when we return to Gotham. The bat-nosed fella is anyone’s guess, but the more reptilian looking gentlemen is almost certainly a small-screen incarnation of Waylon Jones, AKA Killer Croc. With the character set to make his live-action debut in Suicide Squad next month, there’s a chance he won’t actually be referred to by that name, however.
Gotham‘s third season is set to debut on Monday, Sept. 19 at 8/7pm.
