Although Selina Kyle was never thought to have been Catwoman before adulthood, Gotham has continued to feature “prototype” versions of the characters from Batman lore. According to actress Camren Bicondova, this season Selina will grow more prominently into her role as the feline femme fatale:
“Especially after this next episode airs, Episode 13; I think she’s actually going to believe in herself and she’s actually going to believe that she’s a strong independent person. I think she’s always said that to make herself feel better and make it easier for her to live and survive, but after instances that are going to be occurring in her life soon, I think they’re actually going to force her to actually believe that she is this strong independent young lady instead of just telling herself that. I think that’s one step she’s going to be taking to becoming Catwoman.”
Bicondova certainly understands that Selina’s independence is a step towards becoming the sleuth that continuously walks the line between hero and villain. She also thinks that confidence is a recognizable facet of her adult character, and we will see her gradually start to grow more confident in her actions over the course of the season.
“Catwoman actually believes everything she says and thinks, whereas Selina over the past two seasons has been kind of saying things to make herself feel better, so that would be the one thing that she’s going to be changing.”
Selina won’t be the only character to mature into her adult counterpart in the second half of this season. Edward Nygma will reportedly get his Riddler outfit later this season and Jerome will return crazier than ever.
Gotham airs on Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET on FOX. For a review of the mid-season premiere titled “Ghosts”, click here!
