Notable characters include Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumble Bee, Poison Ivy and Katana.

After a bit of a rocky start – future generations, with the benefit of eons more wisdom and analytical capabilities, will still struggle to figure out what that Balloon Man thing was about and who thought it was a good idea – Gotham wound up being one of Fox’s biggest hits this year, the Batman prequel series managing to climb to…if not dizzying, then at least acceptable heights in terms of critical and fan estimations.
One of the delicate tight rope walks the show has sometimes stumbled on is the amount of villains it introduces. The premise of Gotham has Bruce Wayne, the future Caped Crusader, as a helpless child – and its Jim Gordon, years before he becomes police commissioner, who’s tasked with solving the murder of the innocent young billionaire’s parents. An investigation that’s taken him into the singularly strange criminal underworld of Gotham city. »

Gotham has spent most of its first season delving into the backstories and origins of several of the Dark Knight’s famous rogues gallery, from Penguin, Catwoman and Riddler to Poison Ivy, Scarecrow and even the Joker. Now, we’re hearing that three more iconic foes will be making their debut in the series’ already-greenlit second season.
According to producer John Stephens, who participated in the Gotham panel at WonderCon this past weekend, those new villains are fan-favorite Victor Fries a.k.a. Mr. Freeze, shape-shifting monster Clayface, and Jervis Tetch, better known by readers as Alice in Wonderland-obsessed criminal the Mad Hatter.
As of now, there’s no telling how these foes will be introduced next season; they could get recurring arcs like the Penguin, or land small guest spots like Victor Zsasz. The producers have been teasing someone like Mr. Freeze since the show first began, so I »

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! On this day, we honor the culture of the Emerald Isle by adorning ourselves in its hues. But green is not just the color of holiday-themed accessories. It also has an illustrious history of playing critical roles in our films and television programs. Below are some of the greatest appearances green has made on our screens. Erin go bragh! – All the way to the box office! 17. The Curtains in "Sound of Music" What better way to introduce a family of neglected children to the concept of fun clothes than with a little splash of green, even if it is from the furniture. 16. The Green Man in “Always Sunny in Philadelphia" Green may not be proud of Paddy's pub, but Paddy's is proud of it. 15. Luke’s lightsaber in “Return of the Jedi. For episode six, Skywalker’s blue lightsaber got an extreme makeover. Two green thumbs way up! »

In last month's Gotham episode "The Blind Fortune Teller", fans finally got their first look at Cameron Monaghan's Jerome, a character who will most likely become The Joker, although his villainous alter-ego has yet to be confirmed. Of course, The Joker is just one of numerous iconic villains that have been introduced over the course of Gotham's first season, including The Penguin (Robin Taylor), Catwoman (Camren Bicondova), The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith) and Poison Ivy (Clare Foley), some who have had major arcs during the show's first season, and some who have not. With just four episodes remaining in Season 1, Cameron Monaghan's Joker won't be back this year, but during an interview with Comic Book Resources, the actor teased that he may come back in Season 2, but he also might not come back until Season 3.

One thing we know about Gotham is most of the characters are going to survive. The show has to endure long enough for a young Bruce Wayne to grow up, become Batman, and then tangle with characters like Penguin, Catwoman, Poison Ivy and the Joker. Any mystery the show has revolves either in how that will […]

You gamers and Batman fans are probably already aware, but Rocksteady's brilliant Batman trilogy comes to a close this June with Batman: Arkham Knight. While we're still 3 months away from one of the most visually stunning video games to hit consoles (and PC), Rocksteady just released the latest trailer, showing us Scarecrow uniting the Rogues Gallery, including Two-Face, The Penguin, the Riddler, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, and the titular Arkham Knight, as they bring »

The latest Batman: Arkham Knight game trailer has taken a page out of Fox's Gotham TV show by selectively teasing numerous villains from Batman's Rogues gallery. These villains all have a singular goal and they might as well be trying to sit on the Iron Throne simultaneously in order to achieve it.
When you watch the Batman: Arkham Knight 'Gotham is Mine' trailer you'll spot Poison Ivy, The Riddler, The Penguin, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, and of course the Arkham Knight himself, all trying to take over Gotham and be its singular ruler. There's also a freaky fellow that pops up at the trailer's end (see above) that could be the Scarecrow or another resurrected villain from the dead.
Batman: Arkham Knight is still on course for its June 2, 2015 release date on PS4, Xbox One and PC. As revealed yesterday the latest adventures of the Dark Knight from Rocksteady Games is rated "M" for mature. »
If this recently-released trailer is any indication, the World’s Greatest Detective is going to have his work cut out for him when Batman: Arkham Knight rolls around in June.
Featuring some of Gotham’s greatest antagonists, the footage introduces fans of the series to the likes of Two-Face, Penguin, Riddler, the Arkham Knight — a character said to be exclusive to Rocksteady’s in-game universe — Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and lastly, Scarecrow, who appears to be the driving force behind the criminal surge against the city.
And that’s where you come in. For the first time in the franchise, players will be able to utilize Bruce Wayne’s trusty companion, the Batmobile, and we understand that the studio has designed Arkham Knight‘s rendition of Gotham City to facilitate the armoured beast. In addition to this, the upcoming threequel will sport a number of new features and gameplay mechanics »

Gotham Season 1, Episode 16: ‘The Blind Fortune Teller’
Written by Bruno Heller
Directed by Jeremy Hunt
Airs Mondays at 8pm Et on Fox
The season returns in stride with this week’s episode that is full of Batman mythology nods, with fun character moments that build momentum for the season’s subplots that are showing lots of promising development. At the center of the episode is the relationship of Gordon and Leslie, which is budding in interesting ways and is well integrated with the case of the week. The case of the week addresses two iconic Batman characters in one fell swoop, a bold attempt for the series that could’ve easily been a misstep. However, it is done efficiently enough that it will hold interest in the long run, as there are more stories that they could mine with the characters introduced here.
Fish’s plot is developing very quickly, »

The Fox series Gotham has been bringing Bat-fans many of their favorite iconic bad guys in embryonic forms. Many fans have been waiting for a certain grinning maniac to show up. Despite the fact that writer/producer Bruno Heller has said we’ll be waiting a bit longer for it”, the ‘next time’ trailer for the upcoming 16th episode “The Blind Fortune Teller”, teases that the dark knight’s arch enemy may be popping up sooner than expected.
Gotham is not only about the exploits of young Jim Gordon and very young Bruce Wayne; it’s also about the oddities who will one day become iconic Batman foes. The premise of the series is about how the troubled city of Gotham alters and infects his citizens, usually bringing out the worst in people, but sometimes inspiring uncommon heroism, as in the case of Gordon.

If meeting the future Two-Face and Poison Ivy hasn't been enough for you on Gotham, say hello to another villain Batman will one day face: the Scarecrow. He, however, isn't the bad guy in this episode, "The Fearsome Dr. Crane." He's the son of the bad guy. For right now, Jonathan Crane, aka the future Scarecrow, seems like a mopey teenager working alongside a psychopathic father.
Along with that, there are a lot of other plotlines to deal with. Two of them are vaguely interesting, and of those two, neither involves Jim Gordon.
Every year at Toy Fair we have the privilege of getting a tour around the ultra-secretive Lego stand, and this year was no different. Of course secrecy equals no photos, but what I can tell you is that there are some truly awesome sets coming later this year: including a new Scooby Doo line which seems to share a lot in common with the Monster Fighters line I was so in love with:
#75903 Haunted Lighthouse - A sea/swamp based theme that takes the Swamp Creature directly from the Lego Monster Fighters line and places him in with Scooby Doo, Shaggy, Daphne and a creepy, bearded ghostly lighthouse keeper.
#75904 Mystery Mansion - Again reminiscent of the Vampyre Castle, this set contains minifigures of Scooby Doo, »
