Gotham is coming back for a fifth and final season this fall, and there have been a lot of fan theories as to what may happen. A popular theory is that there will be a “time jump”, and we’ll fast forward in time a bit as Gotham wraps up its story. In a new interview with ComicBook, Gotham executive producer John Stephens didn’t rule that out.
“I would say that’s possible,” Stephens said. “I would say that’s not a crazy theory,” he added, with a laugh.
Gotham producers have always envisioned Bruce Wayne becoming Batman in the very last episode of the series. David Mazouz, who plays Bruce Wayne, is 17 years old and his character on the show is around the same age. A theory I’ve seen online is that they’ll jump ahead and showcase an older Bruce Wayne finally suiting up as Batman.
While I don’t like the idea of a teenage Batman, I hope that’s not the case. Mazouz has done a great job as a young Bruce Wayne, and to see someone else get to become Batman would be a slap in the face to him.
What do you make of the Gotham producers comments about a possible time jump? How would you like to see the series end next season? Let me know in the comments below.
