After a long hibernation, the second half of Gotham Season 3 is nigh upon us, and we have a pair of new promos from Fox to preview the war to come, and the “dark hero” who will rise. It looks like we’ll be seeing the first hints at Bruce Wayne’s (David Mazouz) transformation, as well as the return of Jada Pinkett Smith‘s Fish Mooney, Hugo Strange (BD Wong) and Barnes / The Executioner (Michael Chiklis). Plus, we have a few teases of what The Riddler (Corey Michael Smith), Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) and Barbara (Erin Richards) might be up to as they come together for new trouble in the second half of the season.
Gotham returns Monday, April 24th on Fox. The series return also marks the first appearance on the show of Batman’s deadly future foe Ra’s al Ghul (portrayed by Alexander Siddig)
Here are the synopsis of the first two episodes:
In the all-new spring premiere, “Heroes Rise: How The Riddler Got His Name,” airing Monday, April 24(8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) convinces himself that he doesn’t need Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) to succeed and begins to introduce himself to Gotham as “The Riddler.” Bullock (Donal Logue) and Lucius Fox (Chris Chalk) get caught up in Nygma’s mind games, Gordon (Ben McKenzie) learns troubling news about his father’s death and the Court of Owls reveals its next move.
The following week, Ben McKenzie makes his directorial debut in the all-new “Heroes Rise: These Delicate and Dark Obsessions” episode airing Monday, May 1 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Then, in subsequent episodes this season, Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) lifts the veil off the Court of Owls to find the man pulling the strings is the enigmatic and powerful Ra’s Al Ghul (guest star Alexander Siddig). As villains get more depraved, GOTHAM’s heroes will rise, including Bruce, who begins training to become the notorious masked vigilante.
