GOTHAM Set To Introduce Scarecrow

Gotham has gone through a good chunk of Batman's rogues gallery already and now executive producer Danny Cannon has revealed that the writers are currently hard at work on an episode that will introduce the frightening Scarecrow.. with a bit of a twist! Come check it out!

Gotham has done a pretty good job so far this season introducing classic Batman villains including the Penguin, Catwoman, the Riddler, Carmine Falcone, Salvatore Maroni, Harvey Dent, and Victor Zsasz. They also have plans to introduce Mr. Freeze in a future episode and have teased an appearance by the Joker on numerous occassions. Now, it looks like we can add one more name to the long list of villains: the Scarecrow!

Executive producer Danny Cannon revealed at Comikaze that the writers are in the midst of working on an episode that will introduce a young Scarecrow: "We're breaking the story now, the villain will be seen as a child, before he takes on the Scarecrow moniker. In fact, it's something that will be passed on to him from his father, which will create an eventual enemy for Batman while still having an adversary for Jim Gordon."

So he won't exactly be the Scarecrow we know and fear, at least at first, but it looks like his dad will prove to be a more than formidable foe for Jim Gordon. This will be the second live action portrayal of the Scarecrow after Christopher Nolan recently brought the character to life in his Dark Knight trilogy.

As violence between Maroni (guest star David Zayas) and Falcone continues to escalate, Penguin reveals a new component of his manipulative strategy, forcing Gordon to deal with the consequences of his decision to spare Penguin's life in the all-new "Penguin's Umbrella" episode of GOTHAM airing Monday, Nov. 3 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
