Is Gotham Making A Regular Batman Villain Generational?

gotham4Last night on Gotham, the series kicked things up a bit with the aftermath of everyone finding out that the Penguin was still alive. It was a character defining moment for Oswald Cobblepot, Jim Gordon, Harvey Bullock and for Carmine Falcone. It defined the sides for the future of the series.

But the interesting news about the show came out over the weekend at Stan Lee's Comikaze. During a panel, Gotham executive producer Danny Cannon told everyone they are working on a story right now that brings the Scarecrow to town.

BBFC-27Now Jonathan Crane will be young, closer to the age of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle. But it seems the Scarecrow is something that is passed down from father to son.

"We're breaking the story now," Cannon says. On "Gotham," the villain will be seen as a child, before he takes on the Scarecrow moniker. In fact, it's something that will be passed on to him from his father, which will create an eventual enemy for Batman while still having a possible adversary for Jim Gordon.

It's not know if we'll get to see the Scarecrow in the series or if the mask is what is passed on without the whole "terrorizing the citizens of Gotham" part.
