The shadowy criminal organization known as The Court of Owls has been rumored to show up on Gotham for quite a while now, and during season 2 we finally got confirmation that the group were responsible for unleashing Hugo Strange (B.D. Wong) on the city and were funding his monstrous Indian Hill Experiments.
Now, Zap2It has debuted some new San Diego Comic-Con artwork, and it makes it very clear that “all will be judged” by the Owls and their near-unstoppable assassins, the Talons, when season 3 debuts this September.
Here’s what executive producer John Stephens had to say about how much The Court of Owls will feature in season 3, and from the sounds of things, Bruce Wayne is going to be very interested in some of their previous dealings in Gotham City.
We will dive much more deeply into them in Season 3. The Court of Owls, this sort of illuminati group that’s been pulling the strings behind Gotham for centuries and might be the real culprits in the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne, among other things.
We’re sure to find out more about this during the Gotham San Diego Comic-Con panel on Saturday, July 23, so be sure to stay tuned for further updates.
