Gotham Producer Teases Harley Quinn Appearance in Season 3 Finale

13-harley-quinn.w750.h560.2x

Not long before the season 3 premiere, producers of FOX’s Gotham were keen to establish a connection between the Batman prequel series and the burgeoning DC Extended Universe, especially in the wake of the box office success of Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad. At the time, producer John Stephens discussed the likelihood that two key Squad members and primary Bat-villains, Harley Quinn and Killer Croc, would soon make an appearance on the weekly crime procedural, though it was stated that the two might have to wait until another Batman nemesis made his appearance first.

 

Now, as Gotham readies ‘Ghosts’, the season 3 midseason premiere heavily promoting the return (and apparent resurrection) of proto-Joker Jerome Valeska, the road toward an appearance by a certain bat-wielding member of the Squad may have been partially cleared. At least that’s what producer John Stephens recently teased when asked whether or not fans could expect an appearance by Quinn anytime soon. To his credit, the producer gave a surprisingly candid response.

 

As reported by TV Guide, the Suicide Squad star might show up in Gotham as early this season – or the season finale, to be exact. “We might see [her] in Episode 22,” Stephens said. Though he didn’t elaborate further in terms of the exact specifics of her role, he did mention that Harley’s appearance would serve a much larger purpose than a simple Bat-villain cameo, as her arrival will act as a “launching point” for the upcoming season 4 storyline. At that point, Stephens was sure to mention, “it’s crazy,” though the report didn’t specify if he was referring to Harley’s appearance, the season 4 plot or both. The good money is on both.

 

There was no mention of the actor assigned to play Quinn, but that should come as no surprise. There has been plenty of speculation that former Jim Gordon love interest Barbara Kean (Erin Richards) would take up the mantle of the character, but that is far from confirmed at this point, and even Richards herself has pooh-poohed the notion. Moreover, earlier this summer, producer Ken Woodruff suggested that the character of Harley Quinn might have already been introduced, and fans simply didn’t know it yet.

 

The producers having that sort of guessing game at the ready helps explain why they would spill the beans on the arrival of such an anticipated character so far ahead of time. Knowing the likelihood of a Harley Quinn appearance is good will no doubt afford Gotham a profile boost among comic book fans curious to see what the series does with the character and what her arrival means for the future of the titular city. Given that Harley’s comic book love interest (or a proto version of him anyway) seems set for an appearance, Gotham may be looking at a clownish crime wave in its future.

Trent Reznor: Social Media Is Harming Music

220px-Trent-Reznor_2009

According to The Pulse Of Radio, NINE INCH NAILS mainman Trent Reznor said in a new interview with Yahoo! that he believe social media is harmful when it comes to creating art and music. Reznor explained: “What has crept in is that everyone’s a commentator now. The internet is giving voice to everybody thinking that someone gives a shit what they have to say and they have the right. I think, in general, that has created a toxic environment for artists and led to some very safe music. Artists are trying to make music to please the tastemakers that tell the sheep what to like. It’s a vicious cycle and I think it’s unhealthy.”

 

Reznor added: “I don’t see any Princes emerging on the scene today. I see a lot of people making formulaic, made to please, vegan restaurant patron-type shit. And I think it creates an environment where people are too fuckin’ worried about what other people have to say. And people who have never made anything think it’s okay to talk shit about stuff they have no right to talk about. You got a Facebook account? Nobody gives a fuck. You haven’t achieved anything.”

 

Reznor and his musical partner Atticus Ross recently issued a new EP under the NINE INCH NAILS name titled “Not The Actual Events”.

 

Reznor also said the pair are working on two new “major works” from NINE INCH NAILS, although he now says he doesn’t think they’ll arrive in 2017.

 
Reznor and Ross also announced that they are composing the score for an upcoming 10-part documentary on the Vietnam War from filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, which will premiere this September on PBS.

 

“The Vietnam War” is Ross and Reznor’s latest soundtrack project, after providing music for the new film “Patriots Day” and the documentary “Before The Flood” last year.

MORTIIS
Ahead of the release of the forthcoming ‘The Great Corrupter’ remix album in late April, the band will be embarking on a 9 date strong UK co-headline run this March with PIG aka industrial pioneer Raymond Watts.

The band comments: “We always have a great time in the UK, so being able to go out on tour there again, and with old heroes PIG no less, makes it even more exciting! What makes this tour even more special, to me personally anyway, is the fact that we just remixed each other. PIG are on our upcoming remix album “The Great Corrupter” so it´s a double whammy!”

10 March Nottingham – Rescue Rooms
11 March Glasgow – Ivory Blacks
12 March Newcastle – Think Tank
13 March York – Fibbers

OSLO – On the heels of last year’s long-awaited The Great Deceiver album, Mortiis will issue The Great Corrupter on April 21st.

 

The Great Corrupter begins with tracks from the previous album, deconstructed and masterfully “corrupted” by Chris Vrenna, Rhys Fulber, Die Krupps, John Fryer, GODFLESH, Merzbow, Apoptygma Berzerk, In Slaughter Natives, Raison D´Etre, Je$us Loves Amerika, PIG, and many more. The record will also contain unreleased material from the original recording sessions.

“The tracks on this album are very broad,” said Mortiis. “They range from retro sounding, heavy industrial to very deep ambient type music to electronic/industrial club type shuff,” Mortiis said.

The Great Corrupter will be available in CD and vinyl formats, each with its own unique, collectible packaging. It will also be available digitally.

True to tradition, Mortiis will release a Free download single on January 23rd, a ferocious remix by German industrial legends Die Krupps, as a taste of things to come. The single will also feature a non-album remix by club heroes Leæther Strip.
The download single activates on January 23rd on the band´s Bandcamp site.
