Gotham Casts Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle

Posted by Jeff Penner Wednesday, March 5, 2014
As DC and WB fire up their film and TV franchises, hot news came out today of Fox's Gotham casting the roles for a young Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle.

Batman David Mazouz and Catwoman Camren Bicondova

Bruce Wayne, years before donning the cape and cowl, will be played by David Mazouz. This version of Bruce we have only seen snippets of over the decades, a young boy dealing with the death of his parents (right in front of his eyes). The story has yet to be explored in detail, because most writers have preferred jumping ahead to feature an older Bruce ready to take on the world. To watch the boy overcome the multiple stages of grief, as sick as that sounds,  might give the writers plenty to work with.
Batman and Commissioner Gordon in Gotham City

Selina Kyle, who will eventually become the feline fatale Catwoman, will be played by Camren Bicondova. Selina will be a teenage orphan living on the mean streets of, you guessed it, Gotham. The character is rarely fleshed out and is mostly known for wearing a skintight cat suit. It will be nice for Bicondova to have the opportunity to take a character like this and really make it her own.

The series so far will also feature Ben McKenzie (as James Gordon), Robin Lord Taylor (as Oswald Cobblepot), Jada Pinkett Smith (as Fish Mooney), Donal Logue (as Harvey Bullock), Sean Pertwee (as Alfred Pennyworth), Zabryna Guevara (as Captain Essen), and Erin Richards (as Barbara Kean).

How is everyone feeling about this? Does such a young cast give this series a time limit or restriction if Mazouz grows too old, too fast?
