Gotham To "Scratch The Surface" Of Joker's Story By Season's End

Just a little tap-tap-tapparoo.

Posted on

Since it's premiere, fans of FOX's Gotham have been searching for clues about The Joker.

Some say it was this guy, a comedian shown for a few seconds in the shows first episode.

Others are speculating that even fan-favorite Oswald Cobblepot (played amazingly by Robin Lord-Taylor) will wind up on a path to becoming The Joker.

Well, all that speculation is about to change.

Gotham showrunner Bruce Heller has told TV Guide, "We've said you're going to be waiting a bit longer for it, but this is America — nobody wants to wait." He continued on to say, "We will scratch the surface of that story, yes. But just scratch it — a little tap on the door [before season one is done]."

If you're a fan of the show, you know that the character development is remarkable, but is it too soon for The Joker storyline?

Bruce is still only a boy, just learning how to fight. If we go by the comic book lore, The Joker would not even exist until Bruce becomes The Bat. If we are only scratching the surface of that story, it is very possible that we won't be getting another hint towards it until the end of season two or later.

But then again, Gotham doesn't even know what year it is. I'm just excited to be along for the ride.
