The Court of Owls Maybe Coming to Gotham


According to, during their recent Gotham set visit, gave them the impression that The Court of Owls will be making an appearance in the second season of the FOX television series. 

I knew it, I knew it and while it has yet to be confirmed it seems very obvious that we will be in fact getting The Court of Owls story arc. The Court of Owls is a group of high society “villain” types who run Gotham.

When Season 1 ended with the idea that Thomas Wayne had his own secrets and that those secrets would eventually push Bruce Wayne to his Batman destiny, I shouted out “THE COURT OF OWLS HERE WE COME. ”

It certainly makes sense that this group could be featured, while the story itself was meant to show that even Batman doesn’t know everything about his city, Gotham would most likely give Bruce more knowledge than the comics would have him know.’s recent set visit this could hold true:

“We have a long history,” Frain started, “yeah, with the city,” Lucas finished – already working together in a very sibling manner. They also said they’re on a revenge mission, implying that their family felt slighted, perhaps by the rise to power of the Waynes.

And that’s where this new image, released last week, comes into play.

That’s Theo Galavan, seemingly having a conversation with a man in armor, some kind of cloak, and a very interesting looking cowl. The point on the cowl is especially interesting, as it is very reminiscent of the Owls and their footmen, the Talons.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

    You guys are stretching here.

    • How much?

      • fevasu

        A lot..

        I would love to see Court of Owls, but that fat dude just looks weird. And Gotham has lots of weird stuff.. not just the court.

        • Eric Curto

          Well when you understand that not everything in the comics will be copied onto the TV Series than its no longer stretching. There’s a reason the outfit looks similar

          • fevasu

            It doesn’t look similar. Talons are trained killers not some fat weirdo helmet cosplayers.

          • Eric Curto

            Again its an ADAPTATION, the meaning of the word means, a reworking of what has been done before, not a copy, we have no idea what this scene is about, he could be a patsy sent in by them or basing himself around that society, who knows, point is stop looking to the comics to know exactly what’s gonna happen because you’ll always be wrong then

          • fevasu

            Adaptations doesn’t need to be shitty.

            Inspiration and liberties need to be justified. This neither looks earned or justified.

          • Eric Curto

            How do you know? You have not seen the episode or the context in which the episode features this seen, you are pre-judging it based on what you think you know about the comic book. The Crow is an adaptation that took out so much, changed it up and its just a shell of the book, same thing with Jaws. Try giving it a chance before you start accusing it of being a shitty adaptation, look at Quicksilver, the one that looked the least like Quicksilver turned out to be the better take(IMO). As you said it doesn’t look justified, well looks can be deceiving

          • fevasu

            exactly .. you too don’t know. All I am saying is you are stretching.

            I have given my arguments on how it doesn’t look or feel like Talons.

          • Eric Curto

            Yeah I don’t know but I’m not immediately assuming its not because it’ll suck than. I do know that this season is called “Rise of the Villains” which implies the villains are just beginning, this could very well be an early look into the Talon part of the Court of Owls history or it could be someone dressing up like them as part of a myth and than eventually being confronted by the real society or something. Hell this scene could be him drinking poison and not realizing it lol

          • So, you’re just making a judgement based on this one pic? The producers of the show already stated that the Court was a possibility.
