David Mazouz says season two of Fox’s Gotham will find Bruce Wayne transitioning into the superhero he’ll become as an adult. At the 2015 San Diego Comic Con, Mazouz participated in roundtable interviews to discuss the popular series which will be back for a second season on September 21, 2015. Asked how he’s preparing physically for the transformation, Mazouz said he hasn’t really done anything special yet. “I know that training is going to happen with Alfred and with Lucius a little bit in season two. I’m excited for that,” explained Mazouz.

According to Mazouz, the Bruce Wayne in the upcoming season will be dramatically different from the one in season one. “I think that Bruce is a different person. He’s kind of more jaded. He’s not so naive. He doesn’t think, ‘This is wrong and I need to fix it.’ He kind of knows the ways of Gotham now. He knows that he can’t do that. I feel like he had a really dark side at the beginning of season one, but that was because he was grieving and then he kind of lightened up as the season progressed. In season two, you’re going to see him…he’s done. He’s knows, ‘I’m going to do this. This is something I’m going to do, and whoever is going to try to stop me, I’m sorry but I can’t have in my life.’ And that’s going to be an issue with some of the characters he’s really close to now,” said Mazouz.

As for the much-anticipated shift in his character, Mazouz is really looking forward to getting to play this new Bruce. “I’m really excited because season two is really going to start the shift toward Batman. I think season one he was a determined kid who was grieving. He was only determined because he wanted to know what happened to his parents. He wanted to know who his father was. He wanted to know what Wayne Enterprises was, really. He wasn’t Batman. In season two you’re going to see Batman at 14. That transformation – season two is going to be all about that,” revealed Mazouz.

And speaking of Batman, Mazouz sounded incredibly excited when asked about his reaction to seeing the secret room for the very first time. “Awesome! I was stoked, especially when I walked on set and saw that set there,” said Mazouz, enthusiastically. “I’m not going to tell you what’s in there but when I saw that I was like, ‘This is mind-blowing.'”
