Superhero crossovers are all the rage these days, and David Mazouz, who plays the young Bruce Wayne in the Fox series “Gotham,” hopes season 3 would provide an opportunity for a Superman cameo.
“I think it'd be really cool to have a young Clark Kent on the show. To have a 15-year-old Clark Kent. I know in ‘Batman v Superman,’ they played it like Metropolis and Gotham are twin cities, so it wouldn't be that hard to take a boat ride over for Clark,” he told IGN.
Mazouz said that any Batman fan would love to see him interact with Superman. He hopes that they’d get to recreate the scene where a teenage Clark Kent saves a busload of kids from drowning.
“It would just be really cool to just start a scene in the GCPD and just pan, like start on a newspaper that says, 15-year-old boy in Metropolis saves busload of kids from drowning. And then just pan up and have a regular scene that has nothing to do with the... throw a little hint…” he trailed off.
Meanwhile, some new villains are slowly shaping up for the new season of “Gotham.” First, Poison Ivy (used to be portrayed by Clare Foley), is now all grown up and played by Maggie Geha, according to Screen Rant.
Executive producer John Stephens explained in an earlier interview that her sudden aging was actually a spur of a moment idea.
“The idea of Poison Ivy came along because one of the escapees from Indian Hill has the power when he touches you he takes away years of your life, he ages you immediately. So he touches Ivy early on but he didn’t hold onto her for very long so he does a little bit of aging [to her],” he said.
As for The Joker (Cameron Monaghan), who died in season 2, Stephens said they are already planning his resurrection.
“It is 100 percent our intention to bring Jerome back. We’re going to be playing it again this year and basically extending the idea of the cult of Jerome. We’re building the architecture for him to come back,” he told Zap2It.
“Gotham” will return on Monday, Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
