It's time to meet Batman and Catwoman. Sort of.
Gotham has finally found its Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, aka the future Batman and Catwoman, E! News has confirmed.
Touch actor David Mazouz will take on the role of a preteen Bruce Wayne (ahem, not Batman) in Fox's highly anticipated Commissioner Gordon origin series, while acting newcomer Camren Bicondova has been cast as the teenage Selina Kyle. Their casting completes Gotham's series regular roles.
The two young actors join a cast that includes Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue and Jada Pinkett Smith, among others.
Gotham's Bruce Wayne isn't a playboy-by-day, vigilante-by-night, but a preteen who has been sentenced to a solitary life after his parents' tragic murders. The serious and soulful Bruce will rely on the guidance and protection of the loyal Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee) and James Gordon (McKenzie).
Kyle, meanwhile, is a teen orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. A skilled pickpocket and street thief, Selina is pretty dangerous when cornered. Some viewers may recognize Bicondova from her stint on MTV's America's Best Dance Crew as a member of the dance group 8 Flavahz, who came in second place in the seventh season.
Based upon the well-known characters from the DC Comics, Gotham, which comes from The Mentalist's Bruno Heller, explores the origin stories of Commissioner Gordon (McKenzie) and the villains that helped make the city famous.

Pinkett Smith will take on the role of mob boss Fish Mooney, the series' big bad, while Logue will play Gordon's partner, Detective Harvey Bullock. Oswald Cobblepot aka The Penguin will be played by Robin Lord Taylor and Erin Richards will tackle the role of Barbara Kean, Gordon's fiancé.
"I'm super excited. Gotham—it was weird, I've never been on a ride like that," Logue recently told E! News of joining Gotham. "I met them and talked to them and there was some weird internet rumor that I was playing Commissioner Gordon—he wasn't the commissioner at the time—and I'm like, ‘I'm way too old, man!' It was weird to be part of this kind of ongoing discussion that I was not in the mix of."
Gotham already has a series order at Fox. No premiere date has been set.
