Young “Touch” star David Mazouz has scored the role of a pre-teen Bruce Wayne in Fox’s upcoming Batman-prequel series “Gotham”.
Mazouz will play the 13-year-old Bruce who leans on his butler Alfred (Sean Pertwee) and Commissioner James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) for guidance after his wealthy parents are murdered.
Warner Bros. TV, which is producing the series, carefully points out that Mazouz will not, at any point in the series, become Batman.
Another casting choice announced today is newcomer Camren Bicondova (“Battlefield America”) in the role of a young Selena Kyle, an orphan street thief and pickpocket who will eventually become Catwoman.
Bicondova is part of the Hawaiian all-female dance crew 8 Flavahz so her physical dexterity will likely come into play in the role.
