A New Possible Joker In Every Episode Of Gotham?

j8

Okay, so we made much play of Jon Beavers being cast as a stand up comedian in the pilot of Gotham. And the suggestion that he may be a future Joker.

I now understand that this was very deliberate and that the producers are playing with us.

Basically, every episode in the first season will introduce a character that might be a future Joker, each emphasising aspects of the character's iconography, a card sharp, a flower seller, a clown, or just a guy with a very big grin.

All relatively unknown actors. All potentially a Joker. But only one of them being the actual Clown Prince Of Crime.

Get ready to be Joker-teased on a weekly basis….
