Catwoman’s first (real) appearance in the Gotham TV show [+ 2 scenes with Selina]

Ok, folks, back to the normal….”post on sunday” schedule!

In the last episode of Gotham (ever), we see a 10 years time jump in the future. And for that they choose a new actress as Catwoman/Selina Kyle. Since Camren Bicondova is still pretty young it would look weird if she would play a ten-year older self. So they choose Lili Simmons (you should know her from the TV series Banshee!) for playing the role.

For this video I included all the Catwoman scenes and 2 scenes with Selina Kyle.

And here is the video:

As I just saw this last episode of the series two days ago. I am pretty sad that it is all over.
I had high hopes in that series. It delivered a lot. I hoped for a VERY long run to see Selina and Bruce grow into Catwoman and Batman.
And at the beginning of season 4 Selina put on a mask for two episodes. I hoped that would be the start of her transformation into Catwoman.
Well….yes and no. She nearly always had her black leather clothes and her claws on the gloves. But no more mask and no real Catwoman outfit. 😞

On the good side this first real Catwoman appearance on the show did soften my pain of “parting” a little.
I’m a pretty uncritical guy…but…………….
This Catwoman outfit….well, it looks like they quickly put it together without much thinking or money.
This cowl/mask…. I guess it is no coincidence we don’t get to see it for a real close-up.
This visor on the cowl……MY GOD!!!  That is not Catwoman!
No cat-ears??? WHY???? 😖 That is not Catwoman!
I guess they were so ashamed of that mask that they didn’t show it in a close up.

What is weird, she is never called Catwoman in the episode. Is that the reason her mask looks like that?
90% of the (at least solid) cosplayers can design a better Catwoman mask than this. 😄

What is weird, she never is called Catwoman in the episode. Is that the reason her mask looks like that?

And she pulls off her mask in the middle of her heist……WELL, THAT is a great idea!!! 😱
(seems to be some sort of ….disease under the masked women lately (in Arrow and now in Gotham), unmasking for no reason and risking exposure)
*Rant over*

Gotham is over. Arrow is over next year.
DAMN I do need the confirmation that Batwoman will get the OK for season 1. 🙏

Ok, two things I do like regarding her mask. It does cover her face pretty well….and…with that 4 press buttons it is secured at least a little (unlike other masks that a child could just pull off with 2 fingers…).

*EDIT, April 30*

Thanks to a friendly user….here is a picture that provides a better look at the costume:

Well, it was good there was this last episode with the real Catwoman…but that outfit is pretty different from any Catwoman outfit from the movies and comics. And the only thing that says “Catwoman” are the claws on these gloves.

What do you think of her costume?

And of the decision to cast Lilli Simmons for that role?

    • Thanks for the link!
      Yeah, it doesn’t look better from close range 🙁
      But I guess/hope they would took more time to design a proper catwoman costume IF the series would have had more episodes and not just that one were they actually needed it.

    • Thanks for the link! I wonder how great she would have even looked if she had got a “real” catwoman suit.
      But well, is was just for the one episode…so it’s not that important.
      Perhaps Catwoman will appear in the possible Batwoman TV show…and get more screen time 😉
