The series producers have teased that a future season could see the introduction of Harley Quinn.
Fox’s ‘Gotham’ has already introduced us to The Penguin, Catwoman and Poison Ivy, but there’s two prominent villains who haven't yet showed up on the Batman origin series, Harley Quinn and The Joker. While The Joker has long been teased and speculated upon, since the release of Suicide Squad fans have been left wondering wether his accomplice Harley Quinn will ever make an appearance.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour, executive producer John Stephens teased her possible introduction. “Perhaps not this season but in times to come,” he said. “A lot of those [DC Comics] characters, because they're in Suicide Squad, you're not going to be seeing them this season.

Fox's new series 'Gotham' may not have any superheroes, but we're still super excited for it to start.
The extended trailer for Fox’s new show Gotham had us practically dribbling. It looks that good. We need a Batman fix (even if there is no Batman in it...) now that Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy has come to an end and there’s just too long to wait for Batman v Superman. So, what exciting things can we gather from the trailer?

The 'Gotham' trailer is out bringing us a young Gordon and an even younger Bruce Wayne plus a future villain or four.
The first ‘Gotham’ trailer has the internet buzzing as we got our debut glimpse at how the Batman-les, Batman series might look. The head honchos at Fox have been suitably impressed and have already green lit this one for a series of at least 13 episodes. Showing us a pre-Batman Gotham City, the series places Commissioner Gordon as its central character while also telling us the origin stories of a few of our favourite villains. So after viewing the trailer, are we excited to be taking a trip back in time to ‘Gotham'?
Ben McKenzie plays Jim Gordon
‘Gotham’ will focus on the young Jim Gordon as he rises through the ranks of the crime ridden city's police force. Though Gordon himself is of course a focal point, the trailer lets us know that the future commissioner’s story is far from the only one the series will delve into.
We've got our first sneak peek into Gotham before Batman.
The first trailer has been released for Fox's brand new Batman spin-off television series, Gotham. Starring Ben McKenzie ('The OC,' 'Southland') as legendary DC Comics character Commissioner James Gordon, the big-budget action drama will focus on the crime-riddled fictional city in the years before the caped crusader began to round up the baddies.

Turns Out Gotham Was Even Worse Before Batman.
It lives – the first trailer for Fox’s Gothamis here. Fox’s crack at an Agents of SHIELD-type franchise (get over it, everything gets compared to the Marvel cinematic universe now) looks a lot more dark, gloomy, brooding… much like DC Comics movie adaptations of late. Oh, and did we mention it stars Ben McKenzie? As in Ryan from The O.C.? That’s probably an important thing to mention.
Watch the full-length trailer below.
The trailer is pretty epic, especially for a TV show. Apparently Fox are placing heavy bets on this project.
The television network has ordered the prequel series, which will feature younger versions of Bruce Wayne, Alfred the butler, The Joker, Cat Women, The Riddler and Penguin.
