Gotham has teased fans for some time with the Joker-like Jerome, but so far have not actually referenced him as the Joker. David Mazouz does believe however that the villain will eventually make his debut on the show.
Mazouz is currently in Nashville for Heroes and Villains Fan Fest and took some time to sit down with ComicBook.com's Brandon Davis to talk about Batman's most notable nemesis, and if he will ever appear on the popular series.
"I feel like we have to by the end of the show. I hope that when the ending of the show is near our writers will know that, and will be able to put final characters, and not just the Joker, but of everybody."
The series has introduced plenty of villains so far, and Mazouz wants to see Gotham-centric versions of all of them before the series is over.
"I feel like we're, the show is leading up to a certain point. It's leading up to the penguin. It's leading up to the Riddler. It's leading up to Batman. It's leading up to Commissioner Gordon, and I feel like, I really hope that we'll be able to see our versions of those characters be full blown, those characters before the show ends, and I feel like the Joker is one of those characters that really, really is crucial to the Batman lore. I think I'd be comfortable saying that he is the most important character after Batman in the Batman lore.
Whether Gotham eventually says Jerome is their version of the Joker or they introduce someone else entirely, fans definitely want to see the iconic villain in some form or fashion.
