Given all that we’ve seen in the last few weeks, it’s safe to say we can put to bed any suspicions as to whether or not Gotham‘s series finale will feature the Joker. After all, first we got that grainy photo showing Cameron Monaghan sporting a purple suit and heavy makeup, and a few days later, a couple of hi-res shots surfaced online.
Unsurprisingly, the heavily scarred and mostly bald take on the Clown Prince of Crime has been a bit divisive with the fanbase. And while we’ve yet to see Monaghan in his final Joker form on the show, another leaked photo has now made its way onto the web which gives us a creepy look at how he’ll appear.
Seen in the gallery down below, the pic features Mr. J in the shadows looking like something straight out of a nightmare. It’s not the clearest or most hi-res photo, but it does at least give us a better idea of how the iconic villain will look when he shows up on Gotham.

Though this appearance will probably be unfamiliar to a lot of people, it actually may have been inspired by the comic books. Those familiar with Earth-2 as it existed pre-New 52 may remember how its version of the Joker actually outlived Bruce Wayne, ultimately going on to confound Robin and Huntress. And though Gotham‘s Mr. J has only a few strands of stringy hair, his ‘do could’ve been influenced by that handsome Hulk Hogan-style skullet.
Then again, it’s hard to say at this stage since we still haven’t had any official photos or footage of Gotham‘s Joker, but with the series finale quickly approaching, that’s bound to change sooner rather than later. As always, watch this space for more.
