Last weekend at New York Comic-Con we learned that Batman will be making his Gotham debut in the final episode of the series next season, and now we have some details about the Batsuit.
“I think it’s more matte. It’s inspired by, if I had to compare to any one costume, I’d say it’s closer to The Dark Knight Rises,” Gotham showrunner John Stephens told Bam Smack Pow at NYCC. “It’s a little more metallic Bat battle-y looking rather than something like the Suicide [Squad] one or the Affleck one.”
Stephens also spoke to the pressure of getting the Batsuit right.
“How much money can we allocate towards spending on this costume because it’s got to look good,” he said. “Because you don’t want to spend five years, and all of a sudden go ‘great episode but that was a really crappy looking costume’. There’s a lot of pressure, but luckily our wardrobe department is amazing so all the designs they’re doing are going to be great. And we went with short ears”
It’ll be interesting to see what the final Batsuit on Gotham looks like. Are you excited by the way Stephens has described it so far? Let me know in the comments below.
