Commissioner Gordon Warns Future Batman Villains in Gotham Trailer

Here's another trailer for Fox's Commissioner Gordon prequel Gotham, featuring Ben McKenzie as the young detective investigating a crime scene while baddies Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova), Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith), and Oswald Cobblepot/the Penguin (Robin Taylor) look on menacingly. But there may also be another villain's hand at work here: Earlier today, Bleeding Cool reported that the show planned to tease the arrival of the Joker by introducing a new character in each episode who could potentially turn out to be Gotham's iconic Big Bad. While the trailer doesn't feature any conspicuous flower-sellers, card sharks, or super-smiley dudes, we do see McKenzie picking up a newspaper clipping with a cheeky "welcome home" scrawled in red ink, which, frankly, seems like a pretty Joker-esque move to us.
