Aren't you at all curious?
Sure! ‘Gotham’ is going to be an origins story for both the heroes and the villains, which means no costumes for the biggest part of the show, although the creators did mention that a time jump is not out of the realm of possibility. Depends on how many seasons they get and how the story goes. The gist of it is that we’ll witness how the Batman characters that will be included in the show became the way they did.
The show will focus on James Gordon, as a young police officer. He’s new in town and he’s trying to learn how to deal with the city’s high criminality rate and his corrupt co-workers. The second biggest focus will be teenage Bruce Wayne and his journey.
As far as casting goes, the adult cast is seriously top notch. Take a look. I was surprised with every announcement. I’m also very optimistic about the youngest two, who were announced yesterday. I never finished ‘Touch’, but I can tell you that David Mazouz can act. He can totally pull off the pensive, melancholic, depressed young Bruce. I haven’t seen Camren Bicondova in anything, but I remember her from her America’s Best Dance Crew days and she has Selina’s looks, physicality and attitude to boot. She’s a little firecracker. The fact that they announced them last and together tells me that they searched the hardest for them and that they did screen tests together.
I’m very optimistic about the quality of the show, because it looks like the people behind it know what they’re doing. My worry right now is that it might not last. Judging from the reception of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it looks like people want to see costumes and there will be a lack of that in ‘Gotham’. Keep your fingers crossed!

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 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. (x)

↳ “Hush said that when I saw your heart die, part of mine would die, too. He was right, in a way. There has been only one woman who has really held my heart. I locked that part of myself away after my parents died. It was too hurt to risk exposing again. And yet, despite my best efforts, you broke in. You were the first to touch my heart and remind me I still had one. I don’t know if we could ever have more than we’ve already had. I don’t know, especially after this, if you’d want any more from me. Tonight I’m only sure of one thing. Whatever the future holds, wherever life takes me. I will love you. Always.”
