Young David Mazouz (Touch) has been cast in the key role of Bruce Wayne. As fans know, Gotham is set well before Wayne dons the cowl, hence the young actor. Described as “serious and soulful,” Bruce Wayne will need to rely on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth and Detective James Gordon after the tragic death of his parents, Thomas and Martha Wayne.
Also announced today was the casting of Selina Kyle. Relative newcomer Camren Bicondova will play a young version of the cat-loving character, also well before her whip-and-catsuit days. Gotham’s Selina Kyle is a teenage orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. She's a street thief and skilled pickpocket who is dangerous when cornered.
