Jada Pinkett Smith for Gotham Villain

She will play who?

Gotham on Monday, Sept. 22 on FOX.

We have our main villain for Gotham and it comes in the form of... Fish Mooney. That’s right, the big crime boss of the series will be Fish Mooney and will be played by Jada Pinkett Smith. 

Entertainment Weekly had this to report:That name should leave even die-hard DC Comics fans scratching their heads. In the show, Fish is “a sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner, she’s got the street smarts and almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book. Imposing and hotheaded, she’s not one to be crossed.” Fish Mooney also the boss of a young psycho named  Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor), who eventually becomes The Penguin (and we all know what penguins eat … right?)”.

I was left scratching my head as well. I Googled “Fish Mooney” and came up with only pictures of Pinkett Smith. It looks as if we will have a completely original villain for the show.  What do you think Maniacs? Sound off below!

LOL! I want to say so many nasty and funny things about her character's name, too... But I'm not gonna, dammit!

The cast for this show is fantastic. I don't mind at all that she is not from the comics.

Iam pretty certain this will be in the same universe as Arrow and The Flash, but will it be a prequel or take place at the same time...

A DC Universe with no Batman would be a scary place!

I am really hoping that we get a subplot with Wildcat as a vigilante with Selina as his protegé, Catgirl...

Could make for a fun Batman & Robin analogue, while Bruce is travelling the world.

And when Ted (inevitably) gets murdered, She turns to crime...

This show sounds more idiotic with everything press release.

Considering I'm a big Batman fan, and LOVE the setting, danger, lore, & mileau of Gotham City and it's rogue's gallery of villains (Hell, I have even liked the character of Jim Gordon since I was a little tyke!), I am NOT in any way, shape or form excited about this show.  I really think Bruno Heller and Fox need to go back to the drawing board on this one...

Who will Willow and Jaden play? The Wonder Twins?

She was in issue... err...
*Pause*
No, actually, I'm lying.
