Killer Croc and Harley owned this past weekend with Suicide Squad, but expect more from the two on the small screen. At the TCA Press Tour (via IGN), the two characters were revealed to be coming to Gotham. Executive Producer John Stevens spoke on a “proto” version Croc debuting in Season 3. Harley Quinn’s precursor will eventually feature on the show also, though “maybe not this season.” Seeing a young Harleen Quinzel, prior to her involvement with the Joker, sounds incredible.
There wasn’t much more to say about Harley, but Stevens did tease Killer Croc’s introduction. The end of Season 2 saw Hugo Strange’s Indian Hill experiments evacuated on a bus. Of course, that won’t be the last of them, especially since it will act as a “bridge” to other Batman villains. Somehow, both Killer Croc and Solomon Grundy are related to these events, so let the speculation begin.
It’s interesting that Warner Bros. is giving the TV side of things more toys from the toy box. Fans are still in distraught over the dismantlement of the Suicide Squad on Arrow, as the show had plans before the film was announced. Those plans, those glorious plans, included Harley — whose cameo was voiced by Tara Strong. Times have certainly changed, with many positing it has something to do with Geoff Johns’ new role. Superman will debut on Supergirl, and Bat-family members are rumored to appear, as well. It’s only a matter of time before we get the Dark Knight himself. Actually, that will probably never happen. However, with Superman on board and now Harley, the question becomes (aside from the Bat) who isn’t off limits?
How do you think Killer Croc will factor in and what role do you see Harley eventually playing? Tell us your thoughts and theories in the comments below. Gotham returns to Fox on September 19.
