Fox has released a new extended red-band promo for the second episode of Gotham‘s second season, and it offers up a great look at Jerome and his fellow “Maniax” as they cut loose and start causing chaos in the city.
It’s been widely reported that the show is this year going to focus on Jerome (Cameron Monaghan) becoming The Joker, a controversial decision among some fans, but one that’s easy to understand when you take into account the kind of attention that will bring the series from viewers. While Gotham isn’t set in the same universe as Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy, it’s certainly inspired by it, and it’s not remotely difficult to see that Monaghan is channelling his inner Heath Ledger in this violent preview of what’s to come.
