What. What? What.
Gotham, god bless it, is barrelling its way to its final conclusion with all the grace and subtlety of a runaway train that happens to be packed with explosives and also is on fire.
But what’s a Dark Knight without a Clown Prince to chase? So enter Jerome. Well, enter Jeremiah. It’s a long story, but it’s finally entered its conclusion with this: the reveal of J.
The J stands for Joker, obviously. But that should be the most ancillary of your concerns, because, what the fuck.
We knew Jeremiah was all messed up by that acid-bath dip, but good lord this version of the Joker is truly nightmare-inducing. While there are obvious inspirations from Jokers past, both live action and comic book, the contrast of the gleefully bright coloured getup with Jeremiah’s acid-pocked face and barely-there-hair is just… honestly petrifying? And that’s before he’s wandering around with a batarang in his hand. Check out the full promo picture below:
Gotham goes full bats when it returns for its final episodes on this month.
