Jim Gordon will be tasked with hunting down a young Bruce Wayne in the fourth season of Gotham.
With the season four trailer for Gotham showing young Bruce clad in a proto-Batman suit and dishing out vigilante justice, fans have become excited about the show moving closer into traditional Batman territory.
And now we know, thanks to an interview with executive producer John Stephens at DC All Access, that detective Jim Gordon will be targeting the young Wayne.
“In the first half of the season this year, Jim Gordon is going to try to loosen Penguin’s hold upon Gotham. He does that by forming an alliance with Sofia Falcone, who Crystal Reed is playing, and the two of them work together to basically try to dethrone Penguin. At the same time, Bruce Wayne is going to go out there and start operating as a vigilante wearing a mask… And then moving forward after that, Jim Gordon will realize that this vigilante is operating out there in Gotham somewhere and he goes “I’m going to hunt that guy down” and we have Jim Gordon and a masked Bruce Wayne going head to head.”
Gotham season four premieres on September 21st on Fox.
