It doesn’t look like young Bruce Wayne‘s first outing as Batman (or Batboy?) is going to end well.
Gotham executive producer Danny Cannon spoke about what the show’s future holds for David Mazouz‘s character. Speaking to the audience at WonderCon this week, he said:
Bruce will go through a major transformation in these last eight episodes of the season, and it will result in him making a decision that he’s been searching for, for a very long time. It will be the most important decision of his life. He is going to live out the reason he was created, and it will have very bad consequences for Bruce—catastrophic consequences. I don’t want to give away too much, but it’s not going to be pretty.
Everything he just said points to us finally seeing Bruce Wayne taking on the dark persona of Batman, or at least proto-Batman. It will be a moment three season in the making. Sadly, it seems as though Bruce will find that he is not ready to face the dark belly of Gotham all by himself.
Gotham returns Monday, April 24th, at 8pm EST on Fox.
