The producers of Gotham plan to give fans the payoff they have been waiting for: the full reveal of Batman himself. During the TCA press tour, showrunner John Stephens confirmed that Batman will be featured in Gotham‘s finale. Stephens also indicated that Batman will play a large role throughout the entire episode. Stephens went on to note that the bulk of the finale takes place ten years after the series.
“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.”

This version of Batman will be portrayed by someone who can display the physicality of the Dark Knight. However David Mazouz’s face and voice will be used for close ups.
Cameron Monaghan, who plays proto-Joker Jeremiah Valeska, also shared a few comments about the finale.
“All I’ll say is when you have an episode that’s a full-on Batman episode running around in the future,” said Monaghan. “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.”
