Last month Gotham star David Mazouz revealed that the second season of Fox’s Batman prequel series will see Bruce Wayne’s dual personality starting to take shape, and now the young actor had been speaking to Comic Book about how Bruce’s discovery of the Batcave is set to kickstart his journey towards becoming the Dark Knight.
“Bruce’s discovery of that room in the season finale was a turning point,” states Mazouz. “It’s going to touch everything in Bruce’s life. It’s going to turn the page to a different chapter in every imaginable way on his journey to becoming Batman. In season one, Bruce and Alfred were constantly butting heads, but in season two, because of the cave, they’re going to go through a really rough patch. But one they get through it, they’re going to really start to become a team. They’re really going to have the Batman/Alfred partnership that you know. ”

As for how we’ll see his transformation, Mazouz went on to add that: “It’s going to be through multiple things. Bruce Wayne has multiple personas. He has Batman persona, but he also his public playboy persona to fool everyone. And moving into season two, we’ll see more of that second persona from Bruce. Another way, on the villains side, we’re going to see the villains shift from mobsters to super villains. The villains that we know in Batman are going to be the ones who take over Gotham. Penguin is at the threshold right now, but he’s going to meet people who are ten times worse. And because the threat of villains is going to be so immense, the heroes will really have to team up. So you’ll see Bruce and Gordon team up a lot more. And because of that, Bruce will get out a lot more. Gordon is really going to start that mentorship we talked about. They’re really going to start to become closer, and because of that Bruce will find himself more involved with the crime world. ”
Gotham is set to return to Fox on September 21st, with new additions to the cast includes James Frain as Theo Galivan, Jessica Lucas as Tabitha Galavan/Tigress, Natalie Alyn Lind as Silver St. Cloud and Michael Chiklis as Captain Nathaniel Barnes.
