    Sorry dude. I haven’t bothered coming into this forum, so didn’t see your post until now. Just as well there’s a new picture of the Batman costume out, otherwise I might never have come in here again!

    Give me a few minutes and I promise I’ll come back to you with a full and proper response...

    Not sure if it has been confirmed if this is connected to Gotham, but both shows look similar.

    They have the same showrunner Danny Cannon.

    Though I think word got out that's it's not connected to Gotham.

    I'm still not sure how I feel about his look. That said, a LOT of people weren't sure about Ledger's look, either.

    I like it. Different, but hey, its Mr. J. Which kinda explains the point.

    PS makes me think Doc Brown became the Joker, lol

    Eh it doesnt really make much difference now.
    Let them do what they feel is right with this series finale, it wont make the series any better or so.
    Makes sense for the story and all but im not really sold on it...part looks fine but there is also something about it that just looks bad.

    I actually don't hate this and kind of dig the way the prosthetic looks in this image and the actual footage (NOT the horrible promo pic). I'm also usually very forgiving when it comes to Joker adaptations -- even Leto's -- because The Joker is a character with endless potential to be adapted and re-imagined in a multitude of ways. Nearly all versions of The Joker have some redeeming qualities or things that can be appreciated, even while sometimes having lackluster elements.

    Still, the lack of an actual head of hair is very jarring and kind of taints the rest of his look for me. It's almost as if WB (in keeping with their tradition of not allowing Gotham to have the "real" Joker) told the showrunners that they could finally feature a full-fledged Joker -- as long as they chose just ONE of his most defining aspects to leave out. "You want him to have a real purple suit, totally perma-white skin, perma-grin, and red lips? Fine, but they NO GREEN HAIR! Or at least not enough for anyone to see..."

    I mean, almost any kind of hair would look better than this. Slicked back, long/straggly, wild/unkempt, receding hairlines (a la Nicholson), buzz cut, undercut, comb-over, etc. But it is what it is. He'll probably only have 5-10 minutes more screentime this season anyway.

    Doesn't it look like Joker from Arkham City and Knights? Sure, minus the hair and the different colored gloves, but look at the face. Inspirational source?

    There is no way in hell David Mazouz plays an older Bruce Wayne here. Right? Any word on who they cast for this?

    If they can make Cameron look like that I'm pretty sure they have the means to make David look 10 years older.

    Its not really the same Thing. Its very different to just make somebody look like a monster, compared to make a 17-18 Year old kid look like a Guy in His late 20s.

    This. And the fact that David Mazouz doesn't even look 17-18. He looks younger. Aging him up with makeup seems... lazy.

    Unfortunate this show had already committed to its end before WB relaxed with the use of it's hot DC properties. Given they have a 50 odd year old appearing as Batman in Titans season 2 it would have been nice if Mazouz got a couple of episodes at the least to flex his Bat muscles.

    What can they really do with 40 odd minutes that is justice to the character?
