After a lengthy search, Fox’s Gotham has finally found its future Batman. Actor David Mazouz (Touch) is set to filled the role of young Bruce Wayne in the prequel series. He was said to be an early favorite for the part. Deadline reveals that in Gotham, the preteen Wayne is “sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents and relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth and Jim Gordon.” The plan is for Mazouz to grow into the role as Wayne becomes Batman, which will happen by the end of the series.
Also cast in Gotham is newcomer Camren Bicondova, who will play a younger version of Selina Kyle. The series’ take on the character is described as “a teenage orphan, skilled street thief and pickpocket who is dangerous when cornered.” Of course, Kyle is best known as Catwoman in the comics, and has appeared in nearly every major form of Batman media. Wayne and Kyle are the final two series regular roles to be cast in Gotham, which will begin shooting this month.
Gotham also stars Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin, and Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney. It is expected to premiere on Fox next fall.
