It became apparent some time ago, now that Bruce (David Mazouz) is old enough, the young Wayne would suit up and don the cowl of the Batman for the first time on Gotham at the end of its run. Well, the footage is shot and finally going public.

ComicBook.Com is reporting Fox “showed off a sizzle reel from the rest of Gotham’s final season at the network’s panel from this year’s winter press tour for the Television Critics Association. Part of the reel was a teaser look at Batman, not expected to show up until the last few episodes (probably the finale).

TV journalist Damian Holbrook tweeted approvingly and concisely about the occasion.

Obviously, the 5′ 8″ 17-year old David Mazouz, who has played an adolescent Bruce Wayne for five seasons, won’t be wearing the costume. A taller stand-in will handle the job. But they are finding a way around that according to showrunner and executive producer John Stephens. Mazouz won’t be in the costume but his likeness and voice will be used to pull off the full effect. The lad must be able to go deep vocally.

A Twitter thread by attendee Chris E. Hayner, an associate editor for Gamespot, explains.

Hayner and others tweeted, in addition, their excitement in relation to the first look at Oswald Cobblepot and Edward Nygma adopting their villain personas officially.

As for The Joker, Cameron Monaghan has played Jerome and Jeremiah, Joker-esque maniacs that each serve as an avatar for the Clown Prince of Crime in the world of Gotham. It isn’t clear yet if he will go full Joker, as once claimed, but Hayner wrote Stephens said Monaghan’s character will evolve more.

Unfortuantely, Fox hasn’t released the footage to the public yet, but they did tease Bane’s transformation in their latest trailer for Season 5’s Episode 6: I’m Here to Clean House.

We will find out what they mean and how Batman looks by the finale. Gotham airs Thursday nights on Fox.

What about you? Will you be watching when Gotham comes to a close?
