Fans can finally get a glimpse at what David Mazouz could look like as Batman in the upcoming Gotham series finale.
After five years of waiting, Fox’s Gotham will finally put Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) in the Batsuit for the series finale. The actor has donned costumes on the series in the past but for Gotham’s fifth and final season, David Mazouz will officially transform into Batman.
Gotham has yet to reveal exactly what David Mazouz will look like as Batman but talented artist Bryan Fiallos took to Instagram to reveal his interpretation of the highly-anticipated moment. There’s still no telling exactly how much of David Mazouz in the Batsuit fans will see, but this awesome art is sure to tide fans over until the series finale airs. Check out the incredible fan art in the post below.
One other iconic DC character that has yet to make an official appearance in Gotham is the Joker. The show has hinted at the possibility of multiple people becoming the Joker over its five seasons but the actor to come closest to playing the official Joker for this universe is Cameron Monaghan. The actor has played twin brothers on Gotham, both of which have given David Mazouz’s Bruce Wayne plenty of trouble and both of which have shown very Jokeresque characteristics.
Cameron Monaghan’s current character Jeremiah seems to be on his way to becoming the official Joker due to the events of the most recent episode. This past Thursday, episode seven of this current season featured Jeremiah falling into a vat of ACE chemicals and winding-up in full-body bandages, unconscious.
Although Gotham is coming to an end, a new spin-off series is on the horizon. Alfred Pennyworth, played by Sean Pertwee, is getting his own prequel series simply titled Pennyworth, which will air on the EPIX channel later this year. Because the show will focus on Alfred in his younger years, Sean Pertwee will not be returning to the role and instead actor Jack Bannon will play the iconic Batman ally.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Gotham as soon as more information becomes available. Do you think the art is an accurate representation of what fans will see in the series finale? Do you wish David Mazouz would play Batman in his own solo series?

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he’s one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes’ arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he’d love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I’ve always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he’s done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio’s best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c’mon, the guy’s look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn’t deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He’s charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he’s young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
