Gotham fans have been offered a first glimpse at Jeremiah's classic Joker look, in a now deleted social media post from actor Sean Pertwee.

TV enthusiasts are quick to pounce on any new information concerning their favourite shows, so Pertwee's Instagram upload has been screenshot and repurposed on Twitter.


The image displays Pertwee's Alfred Pennyworth (who's receiving his own spin-off show) stood reading Gotham Aesthetics alongside Cameron Monaghan's Jeremiah and David Mazouz's Bruce.

As you can see, Jeremiah's Clown Prince of Crime will certainly shift more towards the smirking villain's classic look in the fifth and final season. With green hair, purple accessories and pin-striped trousers, it's all just getting a bit (why so) serious.

Meanwhile, the forthcoming season will also incorporate The Penguin's classic look, with actor Robin Lord Taylor most likely wearing a fat suit or genuinely living in McDonalds for a few months.

"I can't spoil anything specific but definitely there are parts of the traditional iconography of the Penguin that are coming into play this year," he explained.

"We've done everything else with this character, it has its own unique twists and it's also everything is earned and everything makes sense [that] this character is turning into the traditional Penguin that we all know, and so we see it visually as well as emotionally."

Can fans also expect Oswald Cobblepot to venture into Danny DeVito's grotesque grunter's headspace? We'll find out next year when the fifth season (and Bane) finally arrives.

Gotham airs on FOX in the US and E4 in the UK, where seasons 1-4 are also available on demand via Netflix.
