There’s a new budding millionaire bachelor in Gotham City. Warner Bros. TV has tapped “Touch” alum David Mazouz for the role of a pre-teen Bruce Wayne in “Gotham,” the studio’s Batman origins drama for Fox.
Mazouz will play the boy who leans on his butler Alfred and Commissioner James Gordon for guidance after his wealthy parents are murdered. Bruce Wayne has traditionally been the alter ego of the Caped Crusader — but Mazouz will not at any point become Batman in the show, something Warner Bros. took pains to point that out in announcing the casting.
Mazouz played Kiefer Sutherland’s son in the Fox drama “Touch.”
Also cast in “Gotham,” which has a series order from Fox, is Camren Bicondova, who will play Selina Kyle, a teenage orphan and street thief who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable.
Deals for Mazouz and Bicondova mark the last two regular roles to be cast in “Gotham,” which focuses on young Commissioner Gordon’s adventures in law enforcement and in the roots of the villains that Batman later faces in trying to police Gotham City.
