Gotham’s creator/executive producer Bruno Heller in an interview with CBR confirmed that they’ll be introducing the Red Hood in a future episode.
Can you say if will it remain a costume-free season?
That’s a good question. Especially now that we have a pick up, I always take a long-term view of a show. I’m looking at several years. So we’re in no hurry to [do that] — there’s going to be an episode that involves the Red Hood, which picks up that strand, the costume strand, and sort of gives a kind of philosophical base, if that’s not too pretentious a word. Why costumes? What’s the power of costumes? What’s the power of a mask? All of that groundwork will be laid sort of culturally for that side of the DC Universe before we start rolling into the more spectacular spandex type of deal.
It’ll most definitely won’t be Jason Todd who’s now best known as Red Hood, as he isn’t suppose to be alive at this point in Bruce Wayne’s life.
Now that leaves us with the question, which Red Hood will they be using? Could this be a possible hint at the Joker who was the first Red Hood or more than likely Liam Distal who was the leader of the Red Hood Gang in Batman Year One in the New 52, who was known as Red Hood One?
Guess we’ll soon find out…
