Gotham-Finds-Its-Bruce-Wayne-David-Mazouz

So far, the new Fox TV take on the Batman universe, Gotham – which rolls the clock back to the early days of Commissioner Gordon, Bruce Wayne and the rest – has focused on the casting of the older characters. We now know who will be playing the young Bruce Wayne and a teenage Selina “future Catwoman” Kyle, with David Mazouz and newcomer Camren Bicondova joining the cast.

Gotham’s main story will be that of Gordon (Ben McKenzie), here a rookie detective looking to make his mark on the crime-ridden city and facing the nascent versions of the Batman supervillains we’ll come to know in the future: Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald “not yet the Penguin” Cobblepot among them. Also aboard are Donal Logue as detective Harvey Bullock, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen (Gordon’s boss), Erin Richards as our hero’s fiancée and Jada Pinkett Smith as Cobblepot’s tough gangster overseer.

Mazouz, who was last seen alongside Kiefer Sutherland in TV show Touch, will be a 13-year-old Wayne dealing with the murder of his parents with the support of loyal butler Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee). The young Kyle, meanwhile, will be an orphan street thief and pickpocket who has yet to discover her feline future. Written and created by Bruno Heller and with the pilot due to be directed by Danny Canon, the show should hit US airwaves later this year and should screen over here after that.
