New ‘Gotham’ Promo Trailer Teases The Joker

Gotham The Joker tease

GoD reported Tuesday that the upcoming episode of Gotham 1.16 “The Blind Fortune Teller” will give us a tiny glimpse of Robin aka Dick Grayson’s origins, thanks to preview images released (see here).

Adding excitement on top of that elation, a new promo trailer for the episode was just released and it ends with a gleeful teen sporting an evil smile and a cackling laugh (much like the laugh heard in Arkham Asylum), being questioned by Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), signaling the introduction of The Joker to the Batman prequel universe.

Watch the promo here below.

“The Blind Fortune Teller,” which airs this Monday night, finds Jim and Dr. Thompkins (Morena Baccarin), caught up in the middle of a circus attack (no — it’s literally at the circus), while on a date. After questioning the carnies, including Robin’s future dad, it seems that this slashing grin-faced young man, played by Cameron Monaghan of Shameless fame, holds some answers for Jim, but ain’t telling.

The beginning of the promo shows young Bruce (David Mazouz) at the helm of the boardroom at Wayne Enterprises, then flashes on our four full villains to date — Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith), Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), Cat (Camren Bicondova), and Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) — before getting to the promise of the most iconic of them all.

It actually makes a lot of sense to introduce the Joker now, more so than anything with Robin. The Joker and Batman were always close in age, whereas Robin was much younger. Gotham creator Bruno Heller recently revealed that they’d be introducing the Joker in Season 1.

“Gotham City. Always brings a smile to my face.”

FOX’s press release:

Gotham 1×16 “The Blind Fortune Teller” – Gordon takes Dr. Leslie Thompkins (guest star Morena Baccarin) to the circus, but the day turns quickly when the circus comes under attack. Then, Falcone enlists Butch Gilzean to help Penguin with the night club, while Fish Mooney is otherwise occupied. Also, Bruce Wayne schedules a meeting with the Wayne Enterprises board in the all new “The Blind Fortune Teller” episode of GOTHAM airing Monday, Feb. 16 (8:00-9:00 ET/PT)

And now…our first glimpse of the Joker:
