Gotham 1x16 Promo Still - H 2015

Gotham's Cameron Monaghan set the Internet ablaze with a creepy Instagram post confirming that he is indeed the Joker.

On Saturday, he surprised the Comic-Con crowd by appearing out of nowhere to steal the mic from a fan during the Q&A portion and being dragged off by security guards. Star Ben McKenzie (Jim Gordon) shouted from the stage that he would stop the villain.

Before that, the panel revealed why things are about to get really bad in Gotham. Showrunner Bruno Heller promised season two of Fox's Gotham would be "the rise of the villains," telling the crowd at Comic-Con that a more theatrical type of villain will be in play.

McKenzie said that in response, there will be new good guys introduced, and they will have to band together to combat the rise of the villains.

Alfred (Sean Pertwee) and Bruce (David Mazouz) will become closer in season two, with Alfred switching to a mentor role. 

"You are going to see him train," said Pertwee.  

Mazouz added that the pair would "go through a rocky patch," but would be brought closer together as they investigate the mysterious staircase they discovered in the finale.

The conversation took place during a massive DC/Warner Bros. TV panel also featuring CBS' SupergirlCW's Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and animated spinoff Vixen.
