Even though Fox’s Gotham takes place before Bruce Wayne becomes Batman, we still get to see a lot of his rivals including the Penguin, Falcone, the Riddler, Poison Ivy and more. Now it looks like we’re going to be getting another classic villain joining this season.

During Stan Lee’s Comikaze this weekend, Gotham executive producer Danny Cannon revealed (via Zap2It) that the Scarecrow, a villain who induces fear into the people of Gotham, will be making an appearance later this season. In this version, he will be the adolescent Jonathan Crane, and this will make him around the same age as Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle.

Will we see young Crane terrorize Gotham? Probably not, since according to Cannon, his father will be the first official Scarecrow.

Scarecrow in the comics and movie uses a fear toxin that makes its victims see their worst fears. He’ll be a major villain in the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight video game next year.

Gotham’s “Penguin’s Umbrella” airs tonight at 8pm ET/PT on FOX.
