With only 2 episodes left, fans are waiting anxiously for the series to fulfill its promise of finally bringing Batman to life. A new poster released by Fox and Warner Bros teases a glimpse of the Dark Knight gazing over Gotham City.
Last month, showrunner John Stephens confirmed that the finale will take place 10 years after the series. Batman will make his appearance in Gotham’s finale and will play a large role throughout the entire episode.
“He’s in the episode, not just in a last scene,” explained Stephens. “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.”
Cameron Monahgan, who plays as Joker in the Gotham series and is also known for his role on Shameless, share his thoughts on the upcoming season finale:
“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 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.”
Gotham will return on Thursday, April 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
Gotham is starring David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Robin Lord Taylor as Penguin, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth and Shane West as Bane.
