Why Jeremiah is not called Joker on GOTHAM


This season Gotham finally revealed its Joker in the form of Jeremiah.  After years of baiting the audience with his twin brother Jerome is was an ingenious move for the series. As it’s fourth season draws to a close Gotham has gone full on with Jeremiah in his purple suit and green hair.

But why haven’t we heard anyone call him Joker? Well actor Cameron Monaghan has the answer for you….

Well there you have it. Another example of a studio keeping its movie and TV brands separate. Does it dampen the impact of the character to know he can never be called Joker?

Gotham ends its fourth season this Thursday on FOX.

Gotham stars Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock and David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne. The series also stars Robin Lord Taylor as Penguin, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean and Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth.
