In the latest installment of the online series DC All Access, Gotham producers Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon teased their plan for the Joker.
“We do have an approach for the Joker,” Heller said in an interview with DC All Access host Tiffany Smith. “We have to keep our approach very close to our collective chest because the Joker is, to a degree, the crown jewel of the Batman villains.”
So when can fans expect a Joker reveal on Gotham?
“We’re lucky in that television now is binge-watched by a lot of people, and the slow burn is now necessary,” Cannon explained. “The great thing about the slow burn now is we can take our time getting there and really draw people in, and earn the right to discover somebody who may or may not be the Joker.”
