Fans first caught glimpse of Gotham's Batman suit when the Caped Crusader moved across the shadows in the series' Season 5 trailer. Nothing much was revealed, saved for a cape and a cowl amid the smoke and the dark.
However, on Monday, fans may have gotten their first look at the Fox series' Batman suit when a picture of the costume was seemingly leaked on Reddit. Sure, there was no way to know if this Batman suit was real or not, but the notion that it came from the same source as previously leaked pictures of Cameron Monaghan's Joker, as well as the fact that the picture features a previously unseen suit, certainly helped.
However, while the new Bat-suit was potentially revealed, the darkened nature of the picture made it difficult to catch a clear look at the costume. But now, a clearer look at Gotham's possible Batman suit has also leaked.
The picture is the exact same as the one that was leaked on Monday, but with much better lighting. Now we can the actor and/or stunt double standing in front of a green screen, wearing a full Batman costume.
Is this real, or not? It's difficult to say. The first leak had off-lighting that, according to the original poster, was modified to get a better look at the suit. But why was the picture dark in the first place, if the original lighting is much clearer?
Whatever the case may be, we will see Bruce Wayne suit up as Batman in the series finale of Gotham, which is only a month away. The series' final episode is set to take place a decade in the future, and feature a Batman in his prime fighting his iconic, comics-accurate foes such as Joker, Riddler and Penguin.
Currently, Bruce Wayne is moving ever closer to becoming the Batman. His mansion was destroyed, and he is contemplating leaving Gotham City behind, which means that almost all of the pieces are set in place for the character to return to his crime-ridden city years later and launch his war on crime.
Airing Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox, Gotham stars Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Robin Lord Taylor as Penguin, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean and Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth.
