A New Gotham Featurette Explores the Mystery of The Red Hood

Next week’s all new episode of “Gotham” (the series’ 17th overall) is set to include the first appearance of the Red Hood and, today, FOX has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette that explores the mystery at the heart of the familiar comic book foe. Here’s the official description of the episode, appropriately titled, “Red Hood”:

“Following several bank robberies, Gordon and Bullock investigate the Red Hood gang. Selina Kyle continues to bond with Barbara, and Fish Mooney tries to reclaim her position in the underworld.”

The Red Hood debuted in DC Comics back in 1951 in a “Detective Comics” story called “The Man Behind the Red Hood!” For that iteration of the character, it was revealed that the mysterious foe was, in fact, the Joker all along and was a criminal identity that was in use before the accident that transformed him. Could this be the route “Gotham” takes to bringing the Joker onto the show or is Red Hood more of a red herring? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

“Red Hood” is set to air on February 23 at 8:00pm ET/PT on FOX. If you missed SuperHeroHype.com’s recap of the most recent episode, “The Blind Fortuneteller,” you can check that out right here.
