‘Gotham’ executive producer teases Harley Quinn, Robin, Scarecrow and more

Gotham show runner and executive producer Bruno Heller talked a lot about the show in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly. Here’s what he had to say about some popular characters who may (or may not) be featured soon:

On Dick Grayson/Robin:

“We’re going to do a prenatal origin story for Robin down the line. There are no MRIs involved. There’s an episode coming up where we learn how Robin’s parents got together.”

The Scarecrow will be coming to Gotham this season:

“This is not a kid being a loony Scarecrow; this is a couple episodes about how that character has evolved—everyone’s character is formed in their childhood to some degree or another. His father is involved, as is part of the [character’s] mythology.”

On Harley Quinn:

“One of the things about the size and scope and ambitious of this production is that—it’s not that there’s lots of chefs in the kitchen, but there’s a lot of people with opinions and views and inside knowledge. That aspect of the show—which characters to use and when — is a source of constant discussion. And that may well have been an issue that came up and was dropped. We haven’t got Harley Quinn in it. Riddler’s girlfriend is coming up. And Harley Quinn is definitely planned for later on, but so far no.”

It sounds like fans of Harley Quinn will have to wait a bit longer to see her on Gotham. Heller also reiterated that the Joker will eventually be part of the show as well. If you’re a fan of Gotham, check out the full interview at the source link below.
