Get ready for the new daily show

Batman will be in the full final episode of Gotham and it sounds like it’s going to be amazing…

It looks like Gotham isn’t going to pull a Smallville and merely tease Batman at the end.

With the show wrapping up this season we’ve heard Batman will be appearing and now it looks like it won’t be a case of ‘here’s Batman… the end’.

During Gotham’s final TCA presentation EP/showrunner John Stephens confirmed that, as we heard before, the final episode will jump forward ten years to a fully-fledged Batman roaming the streets of Gotham:  “He’s in the episode. He’s not just in a last scene,” Stephens said.

“The last episode is one scene in the timeline of the rest of the season, and then the rest of the episode is in the future. It almost feels in a weird way like another pilot.”

This sounds pretty damned awesome… and we hope there’s more to that pilot tease. But there probably isn’t.

As for Batman, is seem that a full suit is being created for the show and while it’ll feature the voice and face of Bruce Wayne actor David Mazouz but the body will be someone more ‘Batman’ sized.

On top of this, Jeremiah Valeska actor Cameron Monaghan teased that we may well see him go full Joker: “I will say we’ve been given certain liberties in this final season that we haven’t been given before that’s going to make itself pretty apparent as you watch it.

“All I’ll say is when you have an episode that’s a full-on Batman episode running around in the future, you’re going to have characters that you’ll expect to see. I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say at this point that it’s 10 years in the future — that’s been talked about openly by the producers and showrunners – I don’t want to say exactly what my role in that is, but it was kick ass. It’s one of the coolest opportunities I’ve ever had.”

Sounds like the last episode of Gotham is going to be awesome and, in classic showbiz fashion, will leave us gasping for more…
