It’s no secret that the Joker will eventually show up in Gotham, which premieres on FOX this September. The show’s producers have stated in multiple interviews that the Clown Prince of Crime will be featured in the show, and he’s even hinted at in the very first episode.

According to Bleeding Cool, Jon Beavers has been cast as a stand up comedian and has a brief role in the pilot episode. Batman News can confirm that a comedian is part of the first episode. But Bleeding Cool takes it a step further… according to their sources the Gotham producers will be deliberately placing Joker easter eggs in each episode to keep fans guessing.

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.

If this is true, perhaps the real Joker will be revealed in the final episode of season one. How do you feel about this news? Are you excited for all of the Joker easter eggs, or do you think it’s too soon to introduce a young Joker since Bruce Wayne is only 12 years old? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
