Gotham fans are set to get a look at Bruce Wayne’s Batman suit in the upcoming final season of the show. Now, a new image has teased the next latest prototype for the suit that will eventually transform Wayne into the Dark Knight.
The image, which Gotham Hub posted on Twitter, shows a new look for several of the show’s characters, including Bruce Wayne. Wayne appears to be sporting the chest piece for a prototype Batman suit. How much this look will resemble the final suit remains to be seen.

Actor David Mazouz, who plays Bruce Wayne, has teased that the suit will appear in the show’s final season, and showrunner John Stephens explained the pressure he feels to get the suit right earlier this month.
“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,” Stephens explained. “It’s a little more metallic Bat battle-y looking rather than something like the Suicide one or the Affleck one. How much money can we allocate towards spending on this costume because it’s got to look good. 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.”
