Gotham Exec Confirms Scarecrow in Upcoming Episode
*sniff* I'll miss him most of all.
At this point it would be more of a shock if somebody in the production of Gotham said that there would never be an appearance by a given villain, but still: executive producer Danny Cannon says that a tiny Jonathan Crane is in our future.
Cannon told audiences at Comikaze that “we’re breaking the story now.” Like a few other of the classic villains who’ve been introduced in the show, Jonathan Crane, a.k.a. the terrorist (literally!) Scarecrow, will appear as a young child. That’d put him significantly ahead of his college professorship, descent into madness, and creation of a gaseous chemical compound that creates lifelike and horrifying hallucinations in those who inhale it. But no worries, the show can have its scary cake and eat it too: the Scarecrow “moniker” will be passed to him by his father, giving the show a grown character for James Gordon to go up against.
Luckily for Gotham viewers, this probably means that Doctor Who will maintain its title of Creepiest Child Actor in a Gas Mask.
