Mad Hatter Returns In New Gotham Images


As we begin the sprint toward Gotham‘s season finale, we need to brace ourselves for some returns to be made by major villains. Already, Jerome Valeska has made his presence felt, but based on what we’ve heard, some of the most dangerous customers in the city may very well soon be united under his insane vision.

We already knew that Mad Hatter and Scarecrow would seemingly be among the first to sign up, and it looks like the dominoes will begin to fall on March 29 with “A Dark Knight: One of My Three Soups.” And while we aren’t certain if said episode will appeal to the soup connoisseurs among you, the promo images released by the network hint at Jervis Tetch being up to his old tricks.

So, as we peruse the accompanying gallery, it appears as though baby steps may be taken in forming Jerome’s Legion of Horribles. I mean, Cameron Monaghan and David W. Thompson are confirmed to appear as Jerome and Scarecrow, respectively, but all signs point toward Benedict Samuel’s Mad Hatter being given the greatest amount of screentime for this particular installment.

Also of note is that of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle being on speaking terms again, along with the former sporting some new duds for his nighttime activities. If you’ll recall, he recently burned his Midnighter-looking costume, possibly due to it being poorly received by the fans. Granted, his new, stylized leather jacket isn’t exactly anywhere near a Batman costume, but he’s also not supposed to be the Dark Knight just yet.

Arkham’s “finest” give Gordon and Bullock a run for their money, as they hatch a plan to escape the asylum. Meanwhile, Bruce devises his own strategy to thwart their plans.
