Gotham is adding another kid villain to its gallery of rogues, because apparently there aren't already enough bad guys to go around.

According to, Scarecrow will follow in the footsteps of Catwoman, the Riddler, the Penguin, and Two-Face to be the next iconic villain to appear on the show. The news was revealed during a panel at Stan Lee's Comikaze convention over the weekend.

Gotham executive producer Danny Cannon said the writers are breaking the story now and that the Scarecrow moniker will actually be passed on to the character by his father, because they wanted to create a future enemy for Batman while simultaneously introducing a possible adversary for Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie).

Scarecrow, also known as Jonathan Crane, was most recently portrayed by Cillian Murphy in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy.
