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…?
