This was not much different from Smallville. In Smallville we see close-ups and CGI's. In Gotham Batman was either off-frame or in the background. Smallville ended with Clark doing the shirt rip. Gotham ended with a full shot of Batman. In a way this series finale felt like an epilogue rather than a backdoor pilot to a Batman series that may not happen. I wonder if the Batman 66 series has survived the Disney/ Fox merger.
