FOX has released (via Entertainment Weekly) the first pic of Benedict Samuel as The Mad Hatter in season three of Gotham. If he looks familiar, that’s because he played the scuzzy wolf who Morgan held captive in season six of The Walking Dead. The one who escaped and was really horrible to Denise, remember? Smartened up a bit, hasn’t he?
He’ll be making his debut in episode three, which is titled, “Look Into My Eyes”.
According to the show’s press release, “Jervis Tetch is a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness. He arrives in Gotham with an unwavering desire to find his sister, Alice, a young woman who went missing in the city years ago. It is anyone’s guess just how far down the rabbit hole he’s willing to go in order to find her.”
The Mad Hatter first appeared in Batman #49 (1948).
