10. We want – Batman

The final episode is literally titled ‘Batman’, and the showrunners have also hinted that though David Mazouz will be voicing the Caped Crusader, he will not be donning the Bat-suit as it was created for someone bigger and taller. Hopefully, this will not hinder the episode creators from giving viewers a Batman in action. Viewers deserve one action-heavy scene of Batman in full regalia knocking out bad guys.

More from Show Snob

Gotham has re-created some iconic panels from the comics with its own twists, and what better way to send off this show than with a scene of Batman doing what he does best – standing atop a gargoyle brooding over saving his city. Part of me is dying to see a cheesy 90s style running-towards-the-camera, as well.

9. Definitely not – Justice League

If it’s a Bat-property, then there is a temptation to see his extended family appear. That family includes the Justice League, but their presence would be stretching the realm of realism for Gotham. Aliens and Amazons don’t quite fit with the usually grounded (albeit with some iffy science) atmosphere that the show has generated.

Plus, it would diffuse the central relationships and partnerships that the showrunners have built between Bruce, Jim, Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee), Lucius Fox (Chris Chalk) and Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova). Batman will still be in his early days in the finale, which means it is more important to focus on what he can and will do for the city than bring in additional elements who are likely to take him away from home.
