Amongst the cops, criminals and proto-supervillains already populating Fox’s Gotham, the show will also has a representation in the younger demographic now that the teenagers Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle have been cast.

David Mazouz (above left), best known as Kiefer Sutherland’s autistic son in holistic existential mystery series Touch, will play the boy who will become the Bat. As has already been stated, the murder of Bruce’s parents will be investigated by Detective James Gordon (many years away from his better known mantle of Commissioner), forming the basis of the series’ initial plot.

Newcomer Camren Bicondova (right) has been cast as the future Catwoman, described as a suspicious and unpredictable orphan who survives as a street thief and pickpocket. It’s not too much of a leap to assume she and Bruce will meet early on, and that despite the contrast of their polar opposite social circumstances they will nevertheless be drawn to each other by isolation and loneliness.

Fox have emphatically stated that this is not a Batman TV show, but that’s less a dismissal of possible plotlines that wouldn’t come to fruition for at least five years anyway and more likely a pre-emptive defence against backlash similar to that received by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. from everyone who thought it was going to be a weekly 40-minute version of The Avengers. There’s no real reason not to assume that should the series last as the two actors grow up, we could well see them don the costumes of their famous alter egos.
