Even though there are still a few more weeks until the series finale of Gotham, fans of the show were treated to an exciting surprise on Monday afternoon. FOX unveiled the first look at Cameron Monaghan's final evolution of the Joker from the decade-long time jump in the finale, showing off the arch-nemesis of the show's Batman. It's a twisted take on the classic villain, and it's much different than any other version of the character that has appeared on the show so far.
Of course, when you change the formula of an iconic character, you'll likely be met with mixed reactions. That's exactly what happened on Twitter when the video and photos of Monaghan in the finale arrived online.
Many of Gotham's dedicated fans love the look of Monaghan's character, as he's changed his style and appearance numerous times on the show, each one a little more exciting than the last. Then again, there are also plenty of people dunking on this future Joker, saying he looks totally ridiculous.
Yeah, the reactions to this Joker debut are literally all over the place. Where do you stand on the subject? Let us know in the comments!

It's Different for the Better
Been waiting the better part of 5 years for Cameron Monaghan to actually be The Joker on #Gotham and now that we get his final look, half the TL is firebombing it. ??♂️April 1, 2019
Is That You, Cameron?prevnext
Considering he has long strands of hair. After being in the chemicals he goes into a “coma” for YEARS. Until Batman comes on the scene and then he wakes up. Very Dark Knight returns style. #Gotham pic.twitter.com/UjcBTv6YGF— Ryan_Platts (@RyanPlatts) April 1, 2019
