“Gotham” criminals beware: the Fox drama has cast the young man who will one day take you down.
David Mazouz has been cast as the preteen Bruce Wayne, who has been sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents. Serious and soulful, young Bruce relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee) and Det. James Gordon (Ben McKenzie).
Based upon characters published by DC Comics, “Gotham” is a Batman prequel that explores the origin stories of Commissioner Gordon and the villains that made Gotham infamous.
