While The Joker won’t be appearing on “Gotham” for quite a while, an extended trailer for the show really hammers the point home that he’ll show up eventually.
The minute long clip shows all of the villains you would expect, but it’s when Harvey Bullock lifts a sheet from a dead body, with blood soaking through it creating that telltale smile, while laughing is quietly heard.
“Gotham” executive producer Bruno Heller has already said it will be a while before Joker appears. Especially since the first season of the show largely focuses on the rise of The Penguin. Still, it’s a little hint to add to the show’s marketing, keeping it in the minds of fans that one day it will happen.
“Gotham” premieres Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
