With so many of Batman’s future foes appearing on “Gotham,” you can’t help but wonder who else will be introduced on the show. Harvey Dent’s first episode has been announced, while producers have talked about The Joker and Mr. Freeze showing up down the line.
However, there’s another familiar and horrifying face heading to “Gotham.” During a panel for the show at Stan Lee’s Comikaze, executive producer Danny Cannon revealed writers are currently working on an episode that introduces Scarecrow.
“We’re breaking the story now,” Cannon says. On “Gotham,” the villain will be seen as a child, before he takes on the Scarecrow moniker. In fact, it’s something that will be passed on to him from his father, which will create an eventual enemy for Batman while still having a possible adversary for Jim Gordon.
Whether it will be Jonathan Crane (Scarecrow in the comics and Christopher Nolan’s “Batman” trilogy) remains to be seen, but the idea of fear gas on “Gotham” is both terrifying and fun. Nobody will be safe.
