New Gotham Synopsis Teases One Bad Day

Given the multitude of villains that Gotham has adapted from the comics, it comes as a relief that the series has at long last gotten around to introducing the Joker. Well, at least in every sense except for name. Yes, we have a few episodes ahead of us that’ll show us just how this Jeremiah Valeska thing will play out, but hey, at least we’re finally getting a pale-skinned Cameron Monaghan in a purple suit, right?

Personally, I think the producers are being forced to dance around the villain’s iconic name as to not step on the toes of anything going on over in WB’s motion picture division, but that doesn’t mean what’s remaining this season is any less exciting. In fact, tribute will be paid to The Killing Joke on May 10 when “A Dark Knight: One Bad Day” arrives.

Of course, those familiar

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,

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.

Extended Gotham Trailer Teases Bruce/Selina Team-Up, Bloomed Ivy, That Joker Jerome and Batty Man

Gotham‘s Ivy, once a “seed” and then a “sprout,” now has fully “bloomed,” it is explained in an extended trailer for the back half of Season 4 (arriving Thursday, March 1 at 8/7c).

Five Things You Didn’t Know about David W. Thompson

New York is the East Coast hotspot for up-and-coming new talent. The actor David W. Thompson is no exception. He made his film debut in 2011, in a dramedy called Win Win in which he played the character of Stemler. This movie garnered positive reviews from critics, and was generally well-received. Another role he is well-known for is as the radio host Tad in the 2015 indie horror Green Room. It was also got a lot of good reviews, and was even nominated for an Empire Award. However, it ended up underperforming after its release – bringing home only $3.8

Gotham Casts Its New Scarecrow

To say that Gotham has utilized a healthy amount of Batman’s rogues gallery is an understatement. Heck, we’ve seen everyone from the Penguin and the Riddler to Professor Pyg and Flamingo throughout the course of its four seasons. But, as is to be expected, it’s the ones who are more well known among the mainstream that most often put in recurring appearances.

Not long ago, word came down that not only would Scarecrow show up a few more times later this season, but also that there existed the possibility of him being recast. Well, it looks like those reports were entirely accurate because we’re now going to see yet another actor playing the young Jonathan Crane – and in the very same season the last one appeared, no less.]

Gotham Recast: David W. Thompson Taking Over as [Spoiler]
An infamous villain is set to stalk Gotham anew, albeit with a drastically altered appearance.

TVLine has learned exclusively that David W. Thompson has been tapped to take over the role of Scarecrow, the Big Bad psychopath previously portrayed by Charlie Tahan (pictured, right). According to an insider, Tahan’s series-regular gig on Netflix’s recently-renewed Ozark precluded him from reprising the role. (I teased the impending recast late last year in Ask Ausiello.) The character was last seen in the Season 4 premiere.

Official Trailer for Emily Hagins' 'Coin Heist' Film Coming to Netflix

"You realize if this doesn't go perfectly, we are all going to jail." Netflix has debuted a trailer for the film Coin Heist, the latest little indie from young filmmaker Emily Hagins out of Austin. We've featured her work before, including her most recent film before this, titled Grow Up Tony Phillips. Coin Heist is indeed about a "coin heist" - four different high school kids decide to team up and figure out a way to break into the U.S. Mint and pay off a big debt by planting flawed coins. The cast includes Alex Saxon, Alexis G. Zall, Sasha Pieterse, Jay Walker, Blanche Baker, David W. Thompson and Elijah Boothe. This looks like it might be fun, and I always like supporting talented young filmmakers like Emily. Give it a look below.

It is Not Only the Pace that Kills in Green Room: A Film Review

*full disclosure: a Blu-ray screener of this film was provided by D Films. Director/writer: Jeremy Saulnier. Cast: Anton Yelchin, Joe Cole, Alia Shawkat, Callum Turner, David W. Thompson, Mark Webber and Macon Blair. Green Room is Jeremy Saulnier's third film and this reviewer has seen all three. Since Murder Party (2007), Saulnier's films have become progressively more violent. Green Room is even more gory than 2013's revenge thriller Blue Ruin. Throats are slashed, people are shot and still - there is no justice; one villain survives this brutal and quick paced story. As well, Green Room is notable as being one of actor Anton Yelchin's last films. His end was tragic, but he lives on here. Green Room is a strong indie outing and film fans should see this shocking title. There is no shortage of gruesome moments in Green Room. The film begins with the punk band Ain't Rights.

‘Blue Ruin’ Review

Stars: Macon Blair, Devin Ratray, Amy Hargreaves, Kevin Kolack, Eve Plumb, David W. Thompson, Brent Werzner, Stacy Rock, Sidné Anderson | Written and Directed by Jeremy Saulnier

Jeremy Saulnier may be in the early days of his directing career, but his second directorial effort Blue Ruin shows he has an old cinematic soul. It tells the age old story of the price of vengeance in a reserved and darkly twisted manner with just the right amount of absurdity. Saulnier has a command for the material as he takes a common tale and brings an interesting new approach. Saulnier’s style is reminiscent of some of cinema’s biggest heavyweights including The Coen Brothers and Tarantino, and while it is hyperbolic to claim he is at that level—he at least is starting in the right direction.

Win Win

As the end credits rolled, the first thought that occurred to me was that Win Win felt real. These were basically good people trying to do what is right but imperfections spoil any hope for total bliss. Heroes prove to have feet of clay and monsters don’t seem so monstrous once you get to know them.

The film, out on DVD from 20th Century Home Entertainment, is another terrific showcase of the wonderful Paul Giamatti. He’s become the everyman of his generation, infusing his characters with traits and flaws’ that make them feel real enough you’d expect to find them living down the block. Here, he’s private lawyer Mike Flaherty, suffering from a decline in business thanks to the economy and he is presented with a short-cut so grabs it. He has a court appoint him as guardian to Leo (Burt Young) so he could collect
