David Mazouz, who plays a young Bruce Wayne on FOX’s “Gotham,” tells Monkeys Fighting Robots will get to see more of the character developing his dual identities in the show’s upcoming second season.

Mazouz says: “He’s on a mission and he really is going to start his dual personality into being Batman. When he’s Batman there is his Batman side and then his public persona which is his playboy/party boy persona. In Season 2, he’s really going to start developing that with Alfred.”
