‘Gotham’: First Look At Lili Simmons Replacing Camren Bicondova As Older Catwoman Revealed

Gotham Catwoman Selina Kyle Harley Quinn Camren Bicondova Lili Simmons

Gotham has revealed the first official look at Lili Simmons who replaces Camren Bicondova as an older Catwoman in the upcoming series finale.

Camren Bicondova took to social media to announce yesterday to announce she would be passing the baton to Lili Simmons who will portray an older version of Selina Kyle aka Catwoman in the series finale of Gotham. The final episode Gotham is set to feature a 10-year time-jump giving us older versions of David Mazouz’s Bruce Wayne/Batman and Camren Bicondova’s Catwoman. Leaked images of Lili Simmons’ version of Selina Kyle/Catwoman surfaced earlier this year but this new image gives us our first official look at the actress in the role.

You can check out the first look at Lili Simmons replacing Camren Bicondova as Catwoman in Gotham below!

So what do you think? Does Lili Simmons look like a good replacement for Camren Bicondova’s Catwoman? Are you sad Camren Bicondova won’t be reprising her role in the finale? Let us know in the comments below!

Not only will the series finale of Gotham feature an older Batman and Lili Simmons replacing Camren Bicondova as an older Catwoman, but Cameron Monaghan is also finally becoming The Joker. His final Joker form appears to be inspired by his Earth-2 iteration which first appeared in Justice League Of America Annual Vol. 3 # 1 back in 2008. In the comics, Earth-2 Joker is already an old version of himself. After he fought Batman for years, he allegedly killed the Caped Crusader. But even with his age and disabilities, he’s still fighting against Batman supporters like Robin or Huntress, which is Batman’s daughter Helena Wayne in this universe. Although it’s more likely we’ll see an early version of the Joker in Gotham, who’s just starting his feud with Batman, their looks are very similar.

The series finale of Gotham airs next week and you can read the official synopsis below!

The series flash-forwards 10 years into the future, as Bruce is set to return to Gotham for the opening of the new Wayne Tower. A series of crimes leads Gordon to believe Penguin and The Riddler are up to their old tricks. However, when Bullock is framed for a murder, Gordon begins to piece together an even more sinister plot targeting the city, and a new figure emerges from the shadows to be the hero Gotham desperately needs in the all-new “The Beginning… ” series finale episode of GOTHAM airing Thursday, April 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Gotham stars Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock, Morena Baccarin as Dr. Leslie Thompkins, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma/The Riddler, Cameron Monaghan, and Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox.

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

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

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.

Ryan Gosling

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

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

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.

Richard Madden

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.
