David Mazouz thinks that Batman series without Batman may soon involve Batman!

Can it be true? Is it possible? Is he going to become the god damn Batman?

In a story that came as utter shock to fans of Fox's hit gonzo comedy, Gotham, David Mazouz recently conducted a fan interview at Wondercon regarding his character Bruce Wayne, and upcoming changes to the series. What was so shocking about the interview, you ask? Well, let us cut to the chase and see what David has to say.

 

He's taken a lot of steps this season towards becoming the hero that he's going to become eventually.

Absolutely.

 

What's coming in the season that keeps him on that track?

It's funny, because you're saying that now, and you haven't even seen what's coming! That's basically what the Bruce arc in these last eight episodes are. It's him on his journey becoming what he's about to become.

I don't want to give away too much, but it's really guided by his great desire to figure out his destiny, to figure out his greater propose in Gotham. He wants to know who he is, and somebody will come along and tell him. Whether that image of what he could be is really what he's supposed to be... Basically, he's going to be guided in a direction that probably isn't the best – not probably, it isn't the best route for him, and it's going to take a lot of inner strength to bounce back.

 

Wow. That doesn't sound funny at all. I don't get it. What's the punchline? In a series that had a character named Fish Mooney snatch out her own eyeball, saw Azrael killed with a rocket launcher, and made Barbara Gordon's mom into a serial killer you'd think they had a better sense for comedic timing. Where on earth did he get the inspiration for such a boring and unfunny take on the character?

 

Of the various versions of Bruce and Batman that you've explored while doing your research on the character, was there any previous iteration that left a long-lasting impression on the direction you wanted to take Bruce?

That's a really good question. I'm trying to think now. I think one of the things that really influenced me in almost every single scene that I did, it was two things that really did this for me: It was the "Batman" series created by Greg Capullo and Scott Snyder in 2011, and also "Batman Begins." Those two things, Batman shared a quality in both of those where he was very much stoic, and also you never could really tell what he was thinking.

 

Oh, that's where he got it. Well that amount of praise is sure to make Greg Capullo's nipples erect. Gotham stars David Mazouz as young Bruce Wayne, Ben McKenzie as douchebag James Gordon, Donal Logue as actually good Harvey Bullock, Brian Michael Bendis as Egghead, Tamoh Penikett as Kite-man, and Marlon Wayans as the Condiment King. Join David and the rest of the cast as he further explores Bruce's hilarious journey to becoming Batman as Gotham returns on Monday, April 24th, at 8 PM ET.
