I don't watch Gotham anymore (TERRIBLE show), but this is AWESOME news. I never did like "Jerome" because giving the Joker an origin just ruins his mystique. I have nothing against the actor who plays him, he does a good job with the role but his character was never the Joker for me.
I'm glad Fox recognized the Joker needs to be a little mysterious. I just hope they get someone who will be great for the role, but preferably someone who isn't too old like a lot of the actors are on this show for the characters they are supposed to be playing.
It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
