Gotham to Introduce The Scarecrow

Gotham Scarecrow

Have no fear — the oneday Batman’s adversary known as The Scarecrow is also getting in on Gotham‘s “origin story” fun.

Danny Cannon, an executive producer for Fox’s freshman drama, revealed Sunday at Stan Lee’s Comikaze that they are working on an episode that will set the stage for The Scarecrow’s evolution.

As reported by Zap2It, the fated foe will be seen on Gotham as a child, well before he ever adopts his fear-inducing persona. It was also indicated that said child’s father might first haunt the titular city as The Scarecrow, thus giving both Jim Gordon (played by Ben McKenzie) and, eventually, Bruce Wayne’s caped-and-cowled crimefighter someone to go up against.

What’s Seth Gabel up to? Or maybe Peter Stormare…?

    Yes to Seth!

  2. James says:

    Can they please just focus on developing the villains they already have? They have an underused Nygma and Catwoman there, not to mention Poison Ivy who was only used for a promo poster. And we are going to see Harvey Dent soon too…

  3. Tom says:

    What’s everyone’s current thoughts on this actually getting a second season? It’s ok so far, but it’s more about the Penguin than Gordon. And they are rolling out a ton of the Batman rogues gallery in one season.

  4. Allen says:

    I’m not sure if this is a good thing for Batman or not. Because according to Gotham then, Batman couldn’t beat up a bunch of old men who were his chief adversaries!

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Glad the character will be on the show. Seth would be perfect to play the role!

  6. Moment says:

    That Scarecrow wouldn’t look out of place on Sleepy Hollow. What a creepy looking character.

  7. Nona says:

    Seth Gabel co-stars on “Salem.”

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Yes, it was a joke — Seth already has played a near-identical villain on THE ARROW OF STARLING CITY.

      • I’d love to see Seth on Gotham or Agents of SHIELD. I don’t care. More comic tv show work for him! But it’s funny that he and what’s his face who played Scarecrow in the movie look like they could be related.

    I don’t want to see Seth as a bad guy again!

    Gothams villain of the week is slowly making me lose interest in this show. I’d much rather see some character development with little Bruce or any of the cooler younger villains already introduced in the series.

    • Ray says:

      It really just is a a cop procedural at heart, dressed up in the fabled city of Gotham with some lame variant of iconic comic book characters thrown in for good measure.

    Great show cannot wait!

  11. Jimmy zee says:

    Great show give it some time, it has to play out over several seasons! Jeez!

  12. Worth Harris says:

    I’m love acting and have always loved Batman! Do you think they could cast me as Jonathan Crane?

  13. I quit watching 3 wks ago when Fish stabbed Penguin in the hand and licked off the blood, not the first bloody
    scene. But now I’m watching a Vikings marathon (with Donal Logue, Gotham’s Harvey, playing King Horik). It’s bloodier than Gotham, so maybe I’ll catch up On Demand, lol.
