Look closely and you can quickly make out the Joker and hear his signature maniacal laugh. The Gotham finale will see Bruce Wayne finally become the Dark Knight. The trailer teases fans from start to finish.
It’s now known that the show will jump 10 years for the finale. Unfortunately for a couple of our young stars, this means stepping aside to let others play their older selves.
Although David Mazouz will provide the voice and face capture for the caped crusader, it will be another actor stepping into the suite. As for Camren Bicondova, she will be stepping side completely and allowing actress Lili Simmons to play older Selina Kyle. In a statement regarding the Gotham finale, Bicondova had this to say:
“I firmly believe that part of leaving a legacy and being part of a legacy means knowing when to pass the torch to someone else. I was blessed to be the vessel for Selina Kyle for her formative teen years, and it only felt right to give someone else the torch for her adult self. The woman who will be playing the older Selina Kyle is the glorious Lili Simmons, who, when I met for the first time, made me cry tears of joy. She is perfect for this role, and she really wanted to do Selina right. We spoke about Selina Kyle for hours; I shared journal entries and scenes that were prime examples of Selina’s characteristics, and she shared thoughts of backstory for the 10 years that the audience doesn’t see.”
