GOTHAM Showrunner On A Shared DC TV Universe Crossovers Plus The Joker
In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller thinks it could be possible somewhere down the line. "We'll see as we roll on. Precise tone is the important thing in establishing a series, but then you have to see what other shows live in the same universe. Would it be weird if they met up? It's fun for the audience to see that clash, but actually doing it is scary. I hope we do at some point. That's the beautiful thing about being inside the DC Universe, but we'll wait and see what pops and what doesn't."
On the joker....
"We're going to wait and get the show up and running [before we meet the real Joker]. We want to get the story right and we want to be tonally right - and then we'll start thinking about how to bring him in. We will certainly try to surprise people, and maybe even trick people. It's one of those expectations that everyone will be waiting for, so you can't just present the guy with a big smile and start telling the story. Not that that would be dull, but that's one of those opportunities to really start playing with this." He added "The core of the show is Gordon, but Bruce Wayne will certainly play a much larger part in the show than we had initially thought..."
I feel like he is just saying this to get people to watch. What do you think?
