Gotham is now little under a month from returning on Fox for its sophomore season, and on the heels of the villain-centric trailer, TV Insider has debuted our first look at David Mazouz’s young Bruce Wayne entering the Batcave.
Alongside Sean Pertwee’s Alfred, the pair unearth the secret lair hidden beneath Wayne Manor, which completely upends Bruce’s perspective on his late parents, Alfred and Gotham in general.
Speaking to the outlet in anticipation of season 2, Mazouz described the moment of discovery as a defining turning point in Bruce’s trajectory toward becoming The Dark Knight.

Picking up directly from the finale of the first season, this still is a nice teaser for the subterranean base of operations – just don’t call it the Batcave yet.
“It changes everything in Bruce’s life,” David Mazouz explains to TV Insider. “It changes how he sees Alfred, the criminal side of Gotham, even how he sees his parents. It’s definitely not the Batcave. What is down there are clues to Thomas Wayne’s secret life and what he was trying to do before being killed.”
With season 2’s premiere date fast approaching, things are really beginning to heat up behind the scenes of Gotham. Now that James Frain and Leo Fitzpatrick are on board to portray a pair of memorable villains from DC’s prestigious roster of baddies, the adaptation has also cast Michelle Veintimilla for a new spin on the city’s favorite pyromaniac, Firefly. One thing’s for sure, if Gotham’s debut season proved to be a slow-burner then Fox is gunning for a more action-packed second outing.
Gotham season 2 premieres on Monday, September 21.
