Bruce Wayne dons a proto-Batsuit in new trailer for Gotham Season 4

Contributed by

Fox’s Gotham has quickly been barrelling toward a Batman origin story, and now young Bruce Wayne is rocking his first straight-up super-suit. It’s very… leathery?

We already knew teenage Bruce would be hitting the streets to fight low-level crime, and this new preview for Season 4 shows him making short work of some street-level thugs. Bruce is wearing a ski mask and hoodie to start things off, but before long he looks to upgrade his game with something a bit more, umm, well, bondage-y(?), honestly. The suit includes a full head mask, basically like a Bat-cowl without the bat ears. The suit itself looks to be a leather jacket that zips up high around the neck.

It’s admittedly a bit of a strange look, but it’s fascinating to see this series reach this point just four seasons in. A whole lot has changed since the Waynes were gunned down in an alley, and with Ra’s al Ghul now kicking around the streets of Gotham, it seems the city will need a teenage defender to prowl the skyline.

Gotham returns Thursday, September 21. Yes, it’s now on Thursday.
