Gotham: Season 3
TVLine brings word that FOX and WBTV have settled on a Mad Hatter for the upcoming third season of Gotham and The Walking Dead co-star Benedict Samuel will be wearing it!
Gotham's version of the Mad Hatter is officially described as follows:
“Tetch is a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness. He arrives in Gotham with an unwavering desire to find his sister, Alice, a young woman who went missing in the city years ago. It is anyone’s guess just how far down the rabbit hole he’s willing to go in order to find her.”
Based on the character from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the character first appeared in “Batman” #49 in October 1948; he was created by Lew Sayre Schwartz and Bill Finger. The character has previously been played by David Wayne in the original 1960s Batman series.
New villains from the Batman lore are set to be appearing in the new season including The Court of Owls, Mad Hatter, Solomon Grundy, and more. The new season of the series will also see Poison Ivy undergoing a change with the character now set to be played by Maggie Geha, taking over for Clare Foley who played the character in the first two seasons. It's been revealed that the character finds herself “reborn as a 19-year-old woman who’s harnessed the full power of her charms and sets her sights on Bruce Wayne.”
