In just a few short days, fans will get to learn a whole lot more about Season 3 of Fox's Gotham when the cast and crew descend upon Comic-Con for a panel presentation on Saturday, July 23 from 2:10 PM to 3:00 PM at the Hilton Bayfront's Indigo Ballroom. We don't know for sure yet if any footage will be shown, but to get fans ready for this SDCC panel, Fox has debuted four new videos that reveal how production is getting started for four cast members. These videos also reveal the Season 3 tagline, "Heroes Will Fall."
You may recall that Season 2 was known as Rise of the Villains, so it would certainly make sense that this next season is entitled "Heroes Will Fall. These videos, which surfaced on YouTube, offer brief snippets of footage with four primary cast members, Ben McKenzie's James Gordon, Donal Logue's Harvey Bullock, Sean Pertwee's Alfred Pennyworth and Robin Lord Taylor's Oswald Cobbelpot. Gordon's video shows an unseen enemy pointing a gun at his head, while Bullock is seen leading a GCPD raid. Alfred's video features this loyal butler picking up a sword to defend himself against an unseen enemy, while the final video shows The Penguin pulling a gun on someone.
Gotham's origin story continues to unfold, and as the show enters its third season, the stakes will be higher than ever! Super Villains are continuing to push Gotham City toward the brink, and while Jim Gordon remains at the forefront of the fight against crime in this dangerously corrupt city, how far will he go to save Gotham? Throughout season two, Gordon's moral compass wavered more than ever, creating both personal and professional dilemmas in his life as villains emerged from the city's darkest places, including Arkham Asylum's secret experimental lab, Indian Hill. Bruce Wayne also began to unravel some of Gotham City's - and his family's - deepest secrets, leading him to discover that Wayne Enterprises could be behind some very dangerous schemes poised to tear the city apart.
Season 3 will bring in a number of new characters, such as DC villain Jervis Tetch, a.k.a. Mad Hatter (Benedict Samuel). Jervis is a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness. He arrives in Gotham with an unwavering desire to find his sister, Alice, a young woman who went missing in the city years ago. It is anyone's guess just how far down the rabbit hole he's willing to go in order to find her. It was also recently confirmed that Jada Pinkett Smith will return as Fish Mooney this season.
Other new characters debut this season are Maggie Geha as the new Poison Ivy and Jamie Chung as Valerie Vale, the aunt of Vicki Vale. Ivy Pepper will be transformed after an incident at Indian Hill, and after harnessing the full power of her charms, sets her sights on young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz). Meanwhile, Valerie Vale is the Gotham Gazette's newest hire. She is a crackerjack reporter dead-set on uncovering the truth behind Indian Hill. Confident and dogged, Vale will do anything to get the scoop, and she soon sets her sights on Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), whom she believes is the key lead in her story. Take a look at these new videos from Gotham Season 3, and stay tuned for more from the show's Comic-Con panel this weekend.
