The struggle is obviously real for the producers of Gotham; how do you capitalize on what seems to be a growing DC brand but keep to your timeline? Prior to season 3 the idea of Batman villains had been thrown around. Especially in the face of the the huge success enjoyed by Suicide Squad. Names like Harley Quinn and Killer Croc had been thrown out there early on.
Well now it seems we may be a little closer to seeing what they have in mind. In comments made to TVGuide producer John Stephens says we may see Harley as early as the Season 3 Finale. Speculation also suggests that they may use the character as a springboard to Season 4.
Now whether they mean the literal Harley Quinn character is unknown. There’s the obvious of the timeline being approximately a decade early and then there’s the Joke paradigm. Still, it’s an intriguing thought and for casual fans, the talk should get them tuning in.
So, job well done?
