First Look : Gotham Season Three, ‘Mad City’

The Hollywood Reporter  revealed an exclusive first look at  key art for season three of Fox’s DC Comics drama, Gotham, featuring Ben McKenzie’s ‘Detective James Gordon’ holding a crystal ball showcasing the infamous villains Gordon will have to deal with in the upcoming season. Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) and Edward Nygma, aka the future Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), along with Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova), Barbara Kean (Erin Richards), Tabitha Galavan (Jessica Lucas) and Butch (Drew Powell) pose in the snow globe along with the newly recast, grown-up version of Poison Ivy (Maggie Geha)


A noteworthy addition is the brand new tagline “Mad City,” which  replaces the “Heroes Will Fall” moniker previously used for season three. It follows season two’s “Rise of the Villains” and “Wrath of the Villains” , At the end of which, Hugo Strange (BD Wong) let all his unscrupulous experiments, that included a Bruce Wayne look-alike (which is sure to give actor David Mazouz a fun challenge next season) , escape Indian Hill and into the City of Gotham. Gordon left Gotham to find his ex Lee (Morena Baccarin) and repair their relationship at the end of season two, but will most likely be drawn back to Gotham with the chaos sure to come from the Indian Hill escapees.

“In season three you’re really going to see how villains have taken up residence inside the city,” . Adding that “The villains have become more and more a part of the fabric of the city of Gotham. It’s less and less a police show like it was in season one. It’s a natural continuation of that in season three.”
