Harley Quinn & Killer Croc to Join Fox’s Gotham
The next season of Gotham looks postivley bursting with drama. Fox has debuted a new Gotham trailer (with a nod to their upcoming Lucifer as well), both of which will premiere on Fox on Monday, September 19. Gotham has also made some new cast moves that we're excited about.
Gotham executive producer John Stevens revealed at the TCA Press Tour that both Harley Quinn and Killer Croc, who just made their big screen debuts in David Ayer's Suicide Squad, will be appearing on the show at some point, albeit in "proto" forms.
"A lot of those characters, because they’re in Suicide Squad, we’re not going to be seeing them this season," Stevens said at the event. "We will be seeing proto-versions of some of those characters; we’ll see a proto-Killer Croc version. And we’ll be seeing a character — perhaps not this season, but in times to come — who can be a forerunner for Harley Quinn."
Gotham's main stars return, including Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Michael Chiklis as Detective Nathaniel Barnes, Sean Pertwee as Alfred, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman, Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma/the future Riddler, Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox, and Jamie Chung as Valerie Vale, the aunt of future Batman love interest Vicki Vale.
Lucifer stars Tom Ellis as the devil himself, who in this incarnation is bored. So what's a bored prince of darkness to do? Resign his throne in hell and head to…Los Angeles? Yup. Lucifer is that rare "the devil joins the LAPD" cop show. Interesting, no?
