Gotham executive producer says season 4 finale will “reboot” the series

Although Fox is yet to make a decision on the future of Gotham, it seems that the producers of the Batman prequel show are planning big changes should they get the go ahead for a fifth season, with executive producer Danny Cannon telling Comic Book that the season four fina ‘No Man’s Land’ will “reboot” the series.

“Like I said, the catastrophic event, the cataclysmic event that happens in the last three episodes not only will change Gotham, it not only combines so many characters that you don’t think will cooperate with each other, but it changes the face of Gotham forever, so that season five, it’s almost a reboot and a different show,” said Cannon. “Our characters have reached a maturity now, our characters are so well defined and that’s why I think as writers, that’s right about the point when you want to

Gotham Reveals First Look At “No Man’s Land,” Teases It’ll Create Batman

We’ve known for a while that Gotham season 4 was gearing up to a “cataclysmic” event in its finale. Namely, a loose adaptation of “No Man’s Land,” a seminal comic book arc which saw Gotham City devastated after being hit by an earthquake. Despite this being announced well ahead of time, the show itself hadn’t been teasing that this massive disaster was to occur… Until now.

Last night’s episode, titled “To Our Deaths and Beyond,” saw the shock return of Ra’s al-Ghul, after the League of Shadows resurrected him. Once alive and kicking again, he went to see his former apprentice Bruce Wayne at stately Wayne Manor and informed the young billionaire that he had received a vision of Gotham’s destruction – an event that could force Bruce to step up and become the hero that the city needs right now.

“I saw a vision of

Gotham Season 4 Finale Will Reboot The Series With A Catastrophic Event

As fans will know, the future of Gotham could go either way right now, as no one can say for sure whether Fox is going to give the Batman prequel a fifth season or not. Despite another year not being confirmed just yet, though, the writers are nevertheless plowing ahead with some grand plans for what’s to come.

While speaking with ComicBook.com, Gotham exec producer Danny Cannon promised that the upcoming season 4 finale, titled “A Dark Knight: No Man’s Land” will feature a “catastrophic event” that will go so far as to “reboot” the entire show for season 5.

Here’s how he put it:

“Like I said, the catastrophic event, the cataclysmic event that happens in the last three episodes not only will change Gotham. It not only combines so many characters that you don’t think will cooperate with each other, but it changes the face of Gotham forever,

Gotham Producer Says Jeremiah Valeska’s Not Exactly The Joker, Either

After years of conspiracy theories, Gotham fans finally got the answer they’ve been waiting for. In last week’s episode, Cameron Monaghan’s Jeremiah Valeska – the newly-introduced twin brother of fan favourite Jerome – was infected with some purple gas, which bleached his skin and caused him to erupt into a fit of hysterical laughter. There could only be one explanation: this was the birth of the Joker. Or was it?

As it turns out, Jeremiah isn’t the Joker, after all… At least, not yet. ComicBook.com caught up with Gotham exec producer Danny Cannon and pressed him for details on whether Jeremiah would be referred to as the Joker going forward. He revealed that, despite what fans are expecting, this is unlikely to happen.

“I don’t think so, no. This is an origin show about the beginnings of everything, therefore we just wanted to do the beginnings of why.

Gotham Season 5 is ‘Almost a Reboot’ of the Series

Gotham fans are in for a lot of surprises, especially if the series gets picked up for season 5: executive producer Danny Cannon has promised that next season will serve as “almost a reboot” of the DC TV show.

The current season of Gotham has already put everything into place to give the show a fresh perspective. Bruce Wayne is so close to becoming Batman that fans can almost taste it.

Gotham Season 4 Episode 18 Review – ‘That’s Entertainment’

Martin Carr reviews the eighteenth episode of Gotham season 4…

The League of Shadows, counter kidnapping, exploding heads and a kitsch musical homage with festival soundstage overtones help bring things to life this week. Monaghan chews up the screen, is given more time to hone his alter ego to unnerving affect, whilst pastiche drifts closer to plagiarism than is really comfortable for some. You see it all depends how old you are and just where you rate Burton’s Batman stint on the sliding scale of franchise starters.

For me Monaghan made for a solid looking central protagonist both charismatic, whimsical and truly chaotic, while his subtle dialogue homage made me smile. Where things get woolly and drift towards annoying is in the flagrant plot lift straight from Burton’s first film. Written by Danny Cannon and scene stealing that Nicholson/Keaton finale atop a church tower with minimal changes, it felt lazy rather than inspired.

Gotham Set Pics Confirm Cameron Monaghan As The Joker

To say that the past few months have been a strange journey for fans of Gotham would be a huge understatement. Despite constant reassurance saying that Jerome Valeska won’t end up as this series’ version of the Joker, our suspicion that he will is seemingly fueled with each passing week.

If you’ll recall, executive producers John Stephens and Danny Cannon teased a time for change on Jerome’s horizon, with actor Cameron Monaghan himself confirming he’s playing two characters this season not long after:

“It’s a very strange thing. Obviously I can’t get too much into what the theory is or what that’s like. I will say that I wanted to make this guy feel distinct and I wanted to make him be visually different, I wanted him to carry himself different, I wanted his voice to be different. I wanted everything about him to be accepted.

New Gotham Synopsis Hints At Jerome Expanding His Legion Of Horribles

If you’re a fan of the classic graphic novel Batman: The Long Halloween, then it looks like you may really dig what Gotham has in store for us for the remainder of season 4. In other words, if you’re one for supervillain team-ups, there’ll be a lot to love over the next few months.

In case you hadn’t heard, a recent indicator had been that of some comments made by executive producers John Stephens and Danny Cannon, saying that Jerome Valeska will soon be forming his own “Legion of Horribles.” Basically, he plans on uniting the more recognizable burgeoning supervillains under his own insane vision before spreading Arkham Asylum’s madness out into Gotham City at large.

Still, one shouldn’t expect for a mad dash to the finish line, because while Mad Hatter and Scarecrow are said to be among the first to join the cause,

Gotham Season 4 Episode 12 Review – ‘Pieces of a Broken Mirror’

Martin Carr reviews the twelfth episode of Gotham season 4…

Bombs in biplanes, fist fights in alleyways and physicians controlling gangland turf are just a few of the things which Gotham throws up this week. There are rifts dividing enemies and friends alike as some long standing characters battle their inner demons. As we attempt to fit together those ‘Pieces of a Broken Mirror’ story threads evolve beneath us, while Gotham eyes journeys end for season four.

Intriguing sub-plots and long-awaited reveals come to fruition in episode twelve as Gordon gets his eyes opened, Alfred falls in love and Bullock gives everyone the cold shoulder. However Bruce Wayne feels like an afterthought, just as Kat, Tabitha and Barbara do little to move proceedings along. Shoot outs and harsh words are exchanged while end production value is all up on the screen for audiences to enjoy.

Gotham Star Reaffirms That Jerome Is Teaming Up With Scarecrow And Mad Hatter

Now that Gotham has finally resumed its thrilling fourth season, we’re more than ready for Jerome Valeska to make his return next week. In fact, if you also happen to be a fan of Cameron Monaghan’s proto-Joker, you should be elated to know that we’ll likely be seeing much more of him before the current run wraps.

In case you hadn’t heard, a recent indicator had been that of some comments made by executive producers John Stephens and Danny Cannon, saying that Jerome will soon be forming his own “Legion of Horribles.” Basically, he plans on uniting the more recognizable burgeoning supervillains under his own insane vision before spreading Arkham Asylum’s madness out into Gotham City at large.

Gotham Ep’s Tease Jerome’s Legion Of Horribles

After being somewhat disappointed to hear that Jerome Valeska will be entirely absent from the midseason premiere of Gotham – no matter how heavily he’s factored into its marketing – it was nice to learn that he’s been confirmed to appear in the episode to follow.

Originally, we expected for said episode to wrap up his arc for the current season, and while that is still very possible, new evidence has surfaced suggesting that he may have a recurring role in the second half of season 4. It all comes to us courtesy of a recent DC All Access outing in which they sit down with some of the creative minds behind the series.

A spirited defence of Geostorm

Simon Brew Feb 23, 2018

Geostorm was slammed by critics, and struggled at the box office. But one man wants to fight its corner. Again.

Geostorm, then. We’re back here. A film that finally popped up in cinemas last year, after a gestation period that could best be described as on the difficult side. The brainchild of writers Paul Guyot and Independence Day producer and writer Dean Devlin, it was quickly sneered at, dismissed, and filed as fodder to do stories along the lines of ‘Warner Bros will lose $xm on Geostorm hur hur’.
