One of the biggest successes to come out of the early DC reboot, the "New 52," was the Court of Owls, the centuries old group that is embedded within the history of Gotham City. Along with their trained assassins, the Talons, they were a formidable foe for Batman, and now, they're coming to Gotham on Fox, as revealed by showrunner Bruno Heller when he spoke with ComicBook.com. During the interview, Heller explained that the Court of Owls is deep in Gotham mythology and it will be a part of the show, eventually.
“We are absolutely going to explore that world down the line. Looking at the longevity of the show, we have to hold some cards back, we can’t just throw all of the elements, all of the story at once. The long arc of the show is Bruce Wayne’s journey of discovery down into the depths of the physical and meta-physical world of Gotham. The Court of Owls is a brilliant conceit that will absolutely be part of our storytelling. I just won’t tell you when.”
Could this be a bigger part of Bruce Wayne's journey that fans will see later this year? Was Thomas Wayne connected to the Court of Owls at some point in his life? According to a Tweet from creator Scott Snyder, they'll be around this season. What do you think about the Court of Owls making their way onto the show?
