‘Gotham’ season 3 will add Vicki Vale, Siren, new Poison Ivy, Mad Hatter, Solomon Grundy also rumored

Gotham banner logoGotham season 3 will adding more characters and changing up on, Poison Ivy, currently being recast to be older.  TV Line now reports that “[c]asting is underway for an actress in her late teens to assume the now-series regular role of the would-be eco-terrorist.”

Ivy was played by Uma Thurman in Batman & Robin, a box office disaster for the franchise. Clare Foley has portrayed the character thus far on Gotham.

Additionally, legendary Gotham City reporter Vicki Vale is also joining the Gotham TV show for season 3. Kim Basinger played her in Tim Burton’s Batman movie and became a love interest for Bruce Wayne. Gotham’s version has been described as “an ambitious young journalist”, and word on the web is suggesting she’ll be “in her late 20s”.

As executive producer John Stephens told CBR, other new villains for Gotham season 3 will include The Mad Hatter, the Tweedle Brothers, the Court of Owls and Solomon Grundy.

TV Line is also reporting that Fox has put out a casting call for “a young villainess who uses her sexuality to entrap men,” suggesting that this could be a version of Siren akin to Joan Collins’ character from the 1960s TV show, but the recent announcement that Poison Ivy is being recast could also play to that description.

A casting call is also said to be out for ‘a villain who learns people’s secrets and manipulates them to do his bidding’. It’s believed that this is The Mad Hatter, a Lewis Carroll-inspired bad guy who has already been confirmed for Gotham season 3.
