Gotham To Challenge Agents of Shield For Lowest Ratings By Including Suicide Squad Characters

Early versions of Harley Quinn and Killer Croc will eventually appear.

Gotham will continue its race to the bottom against ratings darling Agents of SHIELD, according to Executive Producer Ken Woodruff. In a move that would make George Lucas cream his pants, Gotham will be introducing proto-versions of fan-favorite characters Harley Quinn and Killer Croc, similar to what they did to The Joker with the character of Jerome. These proto-versions of classic characters allow the show's creators to flesh out characters' backstory. While these characters are slated to appear, it's not necessarily this season, so don't get your hopes up. Although, I'm not suspecting your hopes are very high at all.

Woodruff further went on to say, "We've taken a page from the Star Wars prequels. It's my favorite trilogy. What George did exploring the backstories of those characters was genius. Everyone knows Darth Vader as this big bad, but I always wondered what happened to him as a child. That got me thinking about Bruce Wayne as a child. I wanted to explore what made him become Batman. I honestly didn't know. And I still don't."
