Fox's Gotham has been on a midseason hiatus for months now, and fans have been waiting and waiting for new material. A new trailer for what's to come in the rest of Season 3 has finally hit the web, and it promises a couple of iconic Batman characters and a whole lot of craziness. Check it out!
If I wasn't already excited for the return of Gotham, I would be now! The trailer indicates that we'll see plenty of our craziest characters back again with all new ways to cause trouble for Jim Gordon and Co. In fact, it looks like Jim will be surrounded by more bad guys than ever before, and that's saying something considering he once worked in Arkham Asylum.
The trailer gives us one of our closest looks at the Riddler in all his green glory so far, and it's pretty obvious that he's enjoying going full villain. Now that he's enacted his vengeance on Penguin, he can put his eye on other pursuits, and those pursuits will clearly not be good for the people of Gotham. And he'll look snazzy!
It looks like Gotham will continue its tradition of totally destroying the GCPD bullpen a couple of times per season. I have no idea how there are even still any surviving uniformed officers in the GCPD, but I hope they don't keep any prized possessions on their desks, because there will be some mayhem making its way back into police HQ.
Perhaps most intriguing are the glimpses of Bruce in action. The future Caped Crusader has been training off and on throughout the three seasons so far, but we haven't yet seen him so skilled that he can take down of a band of bad guys singlehanded. It seems that the lessons he learns courtesy of the Court of Owls and Ra's al Ghul himself will take him farther than he ever would have gotten simply with backyard boxing lessons courtesy of Alfred. Young David Mazouz definitely deserves credit for his mastery of the creepy smirk. Bruce already seems to be channeling his future alter ego.
Bruce isn't the only one. The shot of Selina flat on her back in an alley surrounded by shattered glass and tended to by cats looks strikingly similar to Catwoman's origin scene in Batman Returns back in 1992. The recreation of the iconic pose can't be a coincidence, so I'm willing to bet that we'll see more of Catwoman in Gotham's Selina than ever before. Actress Camren Bicondova told CinemaBlend earlier this year that Catwoman "believes everything she says and thinks," while Selina does not; could being pushed out of a window into an alleyway be what convinces her to stick with her instincts and believe in herself?
