“Batman is coming,” says Gotham star David Mazouz. The actor, who plays the younger version of Bruce Wayne on the Fox series, recently attended the Heroes and Villains FanFest in Nashville over the weekend.
Speaking with ComicBook.com, Mazouz says that Bruce will be stepping further into the role of his alter ego in the show’s upcoming fourth season.
“Bruce really is taking on this vigilante persona and all the things that go along with that. Whether it be creating another persona, a public persona, that’s also definitely going to be a major part of Bruce’s journey this year. His relationship as this other person. Batman is coming. Absolutely.”
Mazouz also talked about how he was concerned that the writers would feel that they’d rushed Bruce’s story as the titular hero.
“Another thing I was worried about was we were going to get to Season 4 and the writers were going to go, ‘You know, I think we took it a little too far too fast. Let’s backtrack.’ And the exact opposite happened. The trajectory is just continuing in that direction. I would say, I would know it’s accelerating in that direction. It’s not going to stop.”
