This latest teaser for the upcoming third season of Gotham contains plenty of new footage, and may feature our first glimpse at a certain reptilian villain that recently made his big-screen debut in Suicide Squad.
Set to a haunting rendition of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters,” the majority of the promo is made up of shots of some of the bad guys that are going to be causing trouble for former copper Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and his allies when the show returns towards the end of the month.
We see some well-known characters such as Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) and Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), but there’s also brief flashes of our new, grown-up Poison Ivy (Maggie Geha), and a creature that may just be this early take on Killer Croc we’ve been hearing about.
A few weeks back, the show’s EPs confirmed that we would be introduced to “proto-versions” of Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, and the aforementioned Croc – and while the hulking brute in this teaser could well turn out to be Waylon Jones, some recent production stills suggest that there’s going to be a lot of fairly similar looking Indian Hill escapees running around, so we don’t know for certain at this point.
At any rate, all will be revealed when Gotham returns for its third season on Monday, September 19 on Fox.
