Gotham Star David Mazouz Talks Journey To Becoming Batman
One of the more interesting aspects of Fox's upcoming Batman prequel series, Gotham, is that it will include a young Bruce Wayne as part of its cast, played by David Mazouz. So what's it's like for such a young star to step into such a large role?
"I'm Bruce Wayne," Mazouz tells IGN. "It's going to be challenging, and it's going to be cool also because you know, by the end of the show -- which will run for six or seven seasons, fingers crossed [Laughs] -- but, by the end of the show, I have to have that same emotional strength as Batman. So it's going to be a challenge, and it's going to be cool. I've been working with the directors. [Executive Producer] Bruno Heller and [director] Danny Cannon were amazing, working with me on the pilot. But I have to, progressively throughout the show, become that, from just a regular rich boy -- who isn't so regular -- to becoming Batman, basically. So that's going to be a challenge, but it's going to be cool."
Of course, he does have a bright future to look forward to.
"I think that it's pretty cool knowing who your character is because, you know, I'm going to turn into Ben Affleck."
Gotham will premiere this fall on Fox.
