When Gotham first premiered nearly five years ago, it was said that we would never see one true, proper Joker. Instead, the Batman prequel television series would feature several possible Jokers, so as to not give the character one particular origin story. Fast forward to Season 5, and now it appears as if the Clown Prince of Cime is fully formed, and ready to take Gotham City by storm.
For quite a few seasons now, the birth of the Joker has been closely tied with Jerome Valeska and his twin brother, Jeremiah, both played by Cameron Monaghan. When Season 4 of Gotham concluded, Jerome was dead, and Jeremiah was following in his brother’s footsteps as a maniacal, criminal genius who left the city in chaos and ruins. The character was all but ready to become the Joker and now, with Season 5, it appears as if the Fox series will finally feature Jeremiah as the iconic Batman villain.

A new picture from the set of Gotham, which is currently in the midst of filming its fifth and final season, offers us a look at the returning Jeremiah, who now not only has the pale skin of the Joker, but also the signature green hair and colorful, striped suit. The purple gloves only add to a mix of colors that makes the character stand out as someone who could ultimately become the real Joker.
