Digital Spy visited the set of “Gotham” and talked to the actors about what is to come in the second half of the first season (the show will only return Monday, March 16, to Channel 5, in the UK). Here are the parts concerning Camren Bicondova’s Selina Kyle and David Mazouz’s Bruce Wayne:

Blame the parents

“Gotham” actors have been wising up on DC Comics since they were cast. John Doman, who plays Carmine Falcone, has enjoyed the research and discovered a potential storyline he is keen to explore. “I don’t know whether this is going to happen in the show but I believe that in the Batman stories Catwoman is actually Carmine’s daughter,” he says. “Bruno said, ‘If you have any ideas, tell me’. That’s the only one I talked about so far. That’s big.”

An early (Dark) Knight

What “Gotham” kids actually need, apart from an early night, is a dose of good parenting and some boundaries. Maybe that’s why David Mazouz has turned out so well – he reveals that he went through a lengthy auditioning process to play Bruce Wayne but when he finally secured the role his mum made him wait an extra day before telling him. “She didn’t wanna tell me that day because I’d got into trouble at school,” he explains.

Bruce is not going to discover the bat cave any time soon but he’s slowly developing skills for the future. “You really see hints to his Batman-like qualities,” says Mazouz. “You see his determination in finding out who killed his parents. You see his intelligence throughout that process, also his eagerness, his passion, all the qualities Batman has. Continually, gradually you’ll see more and more, little Easter eggs of those.”

Mazouz has already puffed his chest out for “a mini Batman” shot in a previous episode and way back in the very first episode you might have missed something. “When Bruce’s parents die and he’s screaming on the floor, if you look closely, he and his parents in the shadows form the shape of a bat. I don’t know if Danny Cannon did that on purpose but I noticed it. I’m gonna ask him about that.”

In the last episode shown in the UK, ‘Lovecraft’, Bruce went on the run with Selina Kyle and briefly managed to escape the ivory tower of Wayne Manor. “I wanna see Bruce go into the real world more,” says Mazouz. “I wanna see him really take his determination, his passion, take his adventures and interact, really face the people he has talked about as the opponent, the enemy. That wish of mine comes true in some of the episodes that come a little later.”

Selina Kyle, played by Camren Bicondova, is still on the run, preferring the streets and her feline independence to the home comforts of Wayne Manor, but her relationship with Bruce progresses. “When you watch any movie or read comic books and you see Batman and Catwoman together it always seems that they have history and they knew each other from another life but they never actually say that,” adds Mazouz. “Now we’re showing when they first interacted with each other, why that sense of history was there.”

And last but not least, Fox officially renewed “Gotham” for a second season!

Bruno Heller has been promoting the return of “Gotham” and gave an interview to The Hollywood Reporter, where he talks about how impressed he was with David Mazouz, and what is to come for Bruce and Selina:

What’s been particularly surprising from working on the show so far? Was there a performance or character that you saw in the pilot and thought, “We should do more of that?”
[…]
I would also say that, initially, we didn’t intend to use Bruce Wayne quite as much, because with child actors you always want to be defensive, but David Mazouz is as good an actor as I’ve ever seen — child or adult. It’s rare that you can write dramatic scenes and be confident that they’ll deliver, and with David, he always does, and he can do more and more. We’ve definitely written to him more than we would have otherwise.

David’s been surprisingly enjoyable to watch, especially when he shares the screen with Camren Bicondova’s Selina Kyle. After the way the two parted in the last episode, will we see the two of them together again any time soon?
Absolutely. Their relationship grows, develops and changes; they have their ups and downs. They have such a wonderful contrast to each other. Camren is full of such wonderful light and energy, and has this cocky arrogance about her. She’s incredibly compelling to watch. David is thoughtful, interior, intense and passionate, and the two of them together — you could make a great movie just with the two of them.

What kind of teases can you drop about the back half of the first season?
[…] Selina Kyle’s going to do something incredibly shocking […]. One of the things about the second half of the season is that all the story we’ve set up so far comes to fruition. Some people come to an end, other people are triumphant. […] But I guarantee that, if you liked the first half of the season, you’ll love the second half.

“Gotham” is back tonight, at 8/7c, on Fox.
