One of the biggest reasons fans were thrilled to see Gotham renewed for its fifth and final season was because the series will now get to end in proper fashion. After all, we’re sure that folks would’ve felt a bit cheated after devoting so much time to watching the prequel show, only never to see Batman appear in the last episode, right?
Well, most fortunate for us all, we’ll be seeing just that in a matter of weeks. And what makes this certainty exponentially more exciting is that it won’t just be for a brief flash forward as many may have assumed. Rather, almost the entirety of the series finale will take place in the future, which will allow us to see just whom these characters ultimately become.
As for David Mazouz’s Bruce Wayne, he’s obviously headed down the path to becoming Batman and from what we understand, he got to wear the cowl and give his best Christian Bale-like “Batman growl,” but the actual Dark Knight we’ll see in action was brought to life by a stunt performer over 6 feet tall. The question still remains, though: what will the Caped Crusader look like when he shows up?
Well, we don’t have any official photos or footage just yet, but a leaked image has begun to circulate online and it gives us our very first look at Batman’s full suit on the show. Bearing more than a few similarities to what Bale wore in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, it’s definitely an interesting take on the iconic suit and you can see it for yourself down below.

Of course, with this not having come directly from Fox, there’s always the possibility that it’s a fake, but we’ve heard on a few occasions now that Gotham‘s Batsuit will be somewhat akin to the one we saw in Nolan’s aforementioned films. So, with that in mind, we’re inclined to believe this is real.
Regardless, we should find out soon enough, as the series finale of Gotham is set to air in April and if there’s one thing we can be certain of, it’s that you won’t want to miss it.
