Gotham Explains Bruce’s Proto-Batman Costume

 

A teaser clip for Gotham season 4, episode 2 explains Bruce Wayne’s decision to suit up in a proto-Batman costume so early in his crime-fighting career. David Mazouz’s Bruce has been seen in the costume in various promotional materials for Gotham season 4, including the extended trailer that arrived earlier this month. The introduction of this eye-catching costume has caused fans to ask a big question: will Bruce properly become Batman this year?

There are plenty of other questions on the minds of Gotham fans, as well. Everyone has been left to wonder both why Erin Richards’ Barbara was absent from the Gotham season 4 premiere and when Robin Lord Taylor’s Penguin will unfreeze Corey Michael Smith’s Riddler this season. Fans have been given an answer to one burning question, though: no, Jada Pinkett Smith’s Fish Mooney will not return in Gotham season 4.

Now, thanks to this new clip, an answer has also been provided with regards to Bruce’s motivations for donning a cowl at this particular point in his journey towards heroism. Judging by this preview video, it sounds like Bruce has opted to suit up for safety reasons.

The whole uniform is extremely lightweight, and actually bulletproof”, Chris Chalk’s Lucius Fox explains, giving fans some insight into the specifications and capabilities of Bruce’s new threads. Bruce responds with a wry delivery of the words “I feel safer already”, which explains his motivations for donning this new suit: his homemade outfit from season 4, episode 1 wasn’t exactly the pinnacle of safety wear, which has inspired Bruce to seek Lucius’ help.

The new costume has received a lot of criticism, but it’s hard to deny how enjoyable it is, three years after Gotham premiered, to see Bruce properly fighting crime. Also, it’s important to understand that this is an early prototype – it’s surely the first of many costumes that Lucius will make for Bruce. This isn’t intended to be the finished product. This version of the Batsuit only exists to keep Bruce safe while he learns the ropes of vigilantism.

The iconic design flourishes associated with Batman will surely follow in due course, as Bruce develops his crime-fighting persona and learns the importance of theatricality from Ra’s al Ghul and the League of Shadows. For now, the suit is just for safety, but Bruce will surely learn, in time, that it has a large role to play: striking fear into the hearts of criminals.

Gotham season 4 continues next Thursday with ‘The Fear Reaper’ @8pm on FOX.

Justice League Runtime, Rating and Sequel Talk

 

Justice League runtime, rating and sequel talk

Manabyte has confirmed that the Justice League runtime is 121 minutes, or two hours and one minute, which makes it the shortest of the DC Extended Universe films so far. Man of Steel was 143 minutes long, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came in at 151 minutes, Suicide Squad with 123 minutes, and Wonder Woman was 141 minutes long. The Warner Bros. release has also received a PG-13 rating for “sequences of sci-fi violence and action,” which is not unusual for this type of film.

In related news, Total Film (via Cosmic Book News) spoke to J.K. Simmons, who plays Commissioner Gordon in Justice League and said a script for the sequel is in the works. “Well, Commissioner Gordon wears a trench coat in every scene, so I don’t know that the ‘pumped up’ part is going to be all that evident, especially when you’re standing next to Batman! But this is the first Justice League movie – we hope – of a few. They’re working on scripts for The Batman and for the next Justice League movie. It introduces my incarnation of Commissioner Gordon. I don’t have a lot to do. I feel like I just dipped my toe in the water of who Commissioner Gordon will be.”

Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.

Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Justice League sees Bruce Wayne enlist the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Directed by Zack Snyder (Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeMan of Steel), the screenplay is by Joss Whedon and Chris Terrio from a story by Snyder and Terrio. Whedon directed the additional photography for the sequel and is overseeing the completion of its post production following Snyder’s family tragedy. Justice League is produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns. The executive producers are Jim Rowe, Wesley Coller, Curt Kanemoto, Chris Terrio and Ben Affleck.

Justice League opens in theaters on November 17.
