One of the hallmarks of the Fox TV series Gotham has been its villains. From the beginnings of those characters who would become Catwoman, Riddler, and Penguin, it’s those characterizations which have drawn fans back each week to see the latest seed be planted and continue to grow. One such character that has fans grinning from ear to ear is the man who would be The Joker as played by Cameron Monaghan. If the series is really going to make use of him, with that perfected evil grin and laugh, then there is no question he will run and dominate this show.
If you have any doubts as to this burgeoning evil Monaghan brings to the character just check out the latest season 2 trailer below, which also shows off what is to come with this series of villains.
