Though it was originally touted as being the Jim Gordon show, it seems increasingly that the Batman origin story, or a very aged-down slice of it, will be running in the background of Gotham.
Word is out, with TV Line seemingly getting their story up first, that the young Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle have now been cast.
Bats’ alter ego is to be played by Touch‘s Davoid Mazouz, Cats’ is to be played by Camren Bicandova, a sometime pint-sized dancer with the 8 Flavahz troop.
According to the casting breakdown, the young Kyle will be “wholly unpredictable… dangerous when cornered.” Bruce Wayne, meanwhile, needs no introduction.
I wonder how future proofed this casting is? If Gotham keeps running for, say, eight or nine years, are these kids going to stick around? And if they do, will they even stay suitable?
