A new promo for the upcoming final episode of FOX’s Batman prequel series Gotham teases the fight between David Mazouz’s Batman and Cameron Monaghan’s Joker.
With the series coming to an end, Gotham will finally see David Mazouz don the Cape and Cowl as he takes up the mantle of Batman. In addition, Cameron Monaghan is also finally becoming The Joker. The series finale is set to feature a 10-year time jump that will feature older versions of its characters. The new promo offers us a glimpse at this, including David Mazouz’s Batman himself. It also teases the fight between David Mazouz’s Batman and Cameron Monaghan’s Joker in the episode.
The promo itself has yet to be officially released on the web but has still made its way online. You can check it out below.
So what do you think? Are you excited to see David Mazouz’s Batman take on Cameron Monaghan’s Joker in the final episode of Gotham? Do you wish David Mazouz and Cameron Monaghan had the chance to play Batman and the Joker for a bit longer? What other comic book roles would you like to see David Mazouz and Cameron Monaghan play? Let us know in the comments below!
Although both David Mazouz and Cameron Monaghan will be appearing as Batman and Joker respectively in the future timeline, Camren Bicondova who has played Selina Kyle/Catwoman since the series began back in 2014 will not be reprising her role in the series finale. Instead, she’ll be replaced by Lili Simmons who will portray Selina at an older age for the conclusion of Gotham.
David Mazouz’s Batman looks to be heavily inspired by the Batsuit in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy meanwhile Cameron Monaghan’s 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 and Huntress, which is Batman’s daughter Helena Wayne in this universe. Although it’s more likely we’ll see an early version of Cameron Monaghan’s Joker in Gotham, who’s just starting his feud with David Mazouz’s 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.

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.
