DC Comics just revealed the next Joker, as the brand new Clown Prince of Crime will debut in the upcoming Future State Gotham series.
Warning! Potential spoilers for Future State: Gotham #8 by DC Comics
Earlier this month, DC Comics teased the arrival of a new Joker coming to the Future State universe. Now, the publisher has revealed the “Next Joker” and they are absolutely terrifying. On his Twitter account, Future State: Gotham writer Dennis Culver debuted the character and it seems like things are about to get even more chaotic in the Future State timeline.
In the current Future State: Gotham series by DC Comics, another Joker War seems to be brewing. So far, the series has revealed that the Next Batman is being framed for an explosion that led to many deaths, as Peacekeeper Red (the Red Hood) is put on the case by the magistrate to hunt him down. Meanwhile, Punchline has returned to DC’s future timeline, with Harley Quinn not being thrilled with her arrival. The Magistrate hired Hunter Panic to track Punchline down, but the fourth issue of the series ended with the villain revealing the “Next Joker” is also hunting them down and when he’s done with them, they’ll wish they were dead.
