‘Gotham’ season 3 promo hints at Killer Croc style metahuman

A new Gotham season 3 promo shows a man with spikes running down the center of his head and down his back and shoulders. He sure looks like a version of Killer Croc, whom producers John Stephens and Ken Woodruff have confirmed would be coming to the show this season.

gotham-killer-croc“We will be seeing proto-versions of some of those [Suicide Squad] characters. We see them as sort of a proto-Killer Croc version,” teased Stephens at the TCA. “So if you see someone who has a scientific anomaly so their skin grows in a certain way, and someone says, ‘Oh, I’m going to take that’ and then grow Killer Croc from that in the future.”

The character is likely one of the creatures emerging from Hugo Strange’s Indian Hill laboratory.

“One of the things we wanted to accomplish with Indian Hill and with Hugo Strange’s work there was to, one, show that these skills, these powers were possible and that they existed in the world of Gotham,” said Woodruff at the same event.

“And, to really make the patients that came out of the Indian Hill the precursors of the inspiration for some of the more canonical characters that we see, [such as] Killer Croc, Solomon Grundy so that Indian Hill was the bridge to those villains, in other words.”

showrunner, Bruno Heller, recently said, “I don’t think superheroes work very well on TV. Probably because of the costume thing.” I suppose partially covering Killer Croc in spikes — rather than entirely covering him scales — is one way to “keep it real and unreal at the same time.”

Gotham stars Ben McKenzie, Erin Richards, Robin Lord Taylor, Drew Powell, Jada Pinkett Smith, Camren Bicondova, Jessica Lucas, David Mazouz, Sean Pertwee, Donal Logue, Cory Michael Smith, Chris Chalk, Morena Baccarin, and Michael Chiklis.

Gotham returns September 19 on Fox.
