Gotham Season 3 Villains To Include Mad Hatter, Talon, Solomon Grundy, And More

Solomon Grundy

With a major cliffhanger wrapping up season two earlier tonight, not all Gotham fans may be thinking of which supervillains are coming down the pipeline next.

That's what executive producer John Stephens has to worry about, though -- and in an interview, he revealed that in the wake of Hugo Strange's experiments, we'll be seeing a number of familiar faces popping up in the third season of Fox's hit Batman origin series.

Among those slated for inclusion are The Mad Hatter, Talon, and Solomon Grundy, Stephens said.

"We'll be seeing Mad Hatter in Season 3. We'll be seeing the Tweedle Brothers, too, if we're going to bring the Hatter in. In line with the Court of Owls, we'll be seeing Talon. And, we should be seeing Solomon Grundy," Stephens told CBR.

The Mad Hatter, of course, has been teased a few times already this season. Talon is a memebr of the Court of Owls and a pretty obvious choice for where to go next after their recent introduction.


Solomon Grundy is a bit of a surprise, though. The character was teased but never fully realized in the second season of Arrow. While he was killed, many fans have hoped that he would return in some form (since that's part of Grundy's schtick). Coming to Gotham makes a kind of sense -- he's squared off with Batman quite a few times in the comics -- but at the same time, with such a robust rogues gallery, anytime Batman borrows from somebody else it's going to be a little bit of a head-scratcher.

Gotham will be back in the fall, airing Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
