Gotham spring trailer is loaded with villains

If only someone would come along and put an end to all this villainy in Gotham. We're thinking maybe an orphaned rich kid with a chip on his shoulder. Know anyone?

There's a new trailer for the upcoming spring return of Gotham, and it features a glimpse of just about all of the bad guys in the Batman TV universe. We see the Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), the Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), the future Catwoman (Camren Bicondova), Mr. Freeze (Nathan Darrow), Poison Ivy (Maggie Geha), Hugo Strange (BD Wong), the Mad Hatter (Benedict Samuel), Ra's al Ghul (Alexander Siddig), Talon (Brandon Alan Smith), Firefly (Michelle Veintimilla), Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), the Court of Owls, and that evil Bruce Wayne clone.

The whole thing sets up the "Heroes Rise" storyline, and it not-so-subtly hints that young Batman could finally be on the way. Meanwhile, here's the synopsis for the upcoming "How the Riddler Got His Name" episode: "Nygma convinces himself that he doesn't need Penguin to succeed and begins to introduce himself to Gotham as "The Riddler." Bullock and Lucius Fox get caught up in Nygma's mind games, while Gordon learns troubling news about his father's death. Meanwhile, the Court of the Owls reveals its next move."

Gotham will return to FOX on April 24. Until then, check out why the show's version of the Joker is arguably the best.
