Divergent Many scoffed at predictions that Neil Burger's Divergent adaptation starring Shailene Woodley would open in excess of $65 million, citing recent Ya flops like The Host, Beautiful Creatures and The Mortal Instruments, but Fandango reports that the Ya sci-fi/actioner has already outpaced the first Twilight in advance first-day ticket sales. The movie also made the top five of must-see movies for 2014 in Fandango's fan-submitted survey, besting fanboy favorites like 300: Rise of an Empire and Need for Speed. Veronica Roth, who wrote the book on which the movie is based, praised the movie, saying that she "loved it" and "was completely absorbed by it." Divergent opens March 21st.

We’ve gotten to the point when simply talking about Fox’s Gotham isn’t nearly satisfying enough. I don’t want to know who has been cast in the series anymore; I want to watch this bad boy! It is such a tease to say you’re putting together a Batman prequel series that is telling the origin story of Commissioner James Gordon, as well as Batman and the various villains in his rogue’s gallery. But perhaps, above all, Gotham is the origin story of Gotham City, a truly crumbling kingdom and one of the richest sources for tragic storytelling. But before we can get to enjoy this show, we have to know about Drew Powell’s casting
According to Deadline, Powell will be guest starring/recurring as Butch Gilzean. He’s a deceptively clever and ambitious second-in-command to gangster boss Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith). There isn »

Earlier today we reported that Drew Powell (Malcolm in the Middle) has joined the cast of Gotham as the newly-created villain Butch Gilzean, and now The Wrap has revealed that the Fox pilot has cast two iconic DC roles, with David Mazouz (Touch) set to play young Bruce Wayne - described as a "serious and soulful preteen sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents" - and newcomer Camren Bicondova signing on to portray the "teenage orphan, street thief and skilled pickpocket" Selina Kyle.
Also set to feature in the pilot episode of Gotham - which is being directed by Danny Cannon (Judge Dredd) are Ben McKenzie (Southland) as Detective Jim Gordon, Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers) as Alfred Pennyworth, Robin Lord Taylor (Another Earth) as Oswald Cobblepot, Jada Pinkett Smith (The Matrix) as Fish Mooney, Zabryna Guevara (The Guilt Trip) as Detective Essen, Erin Richards »

The cast of Fox’s Gotham is finally coming together, and I think now the last two pieces of the puzzle are in place: the kids. Though the show focuses on a young James Gordon (Ben McKenzie), teenage Bruce Wayne was always going to be a big part of Gotham. Now, he’s been cast alongside a [&hellip
Fox’s Gotham Casts Its Teenage Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle »
The upcoming "Gotham" TV series, which will tell the origin stories of Jim Gordon and Batman, has just announced that 13-year-old David Mazouz ("Touch") has been cast as Bruce Wayne and "America's Best Dance Crew" dancer Camren Bicondova has been cast as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman). The two actors join Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon, Sean Perwee as Alfred and Jada Pinkett-Smith as a crime boss, Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepott (aka The Penguin). "Gotham" starts with the murder of Bruce Wayne's parents. From there, the show will focus on Gordon and his criminal cases, and end with Bruce becoming Batman. »
Warner Bros. TV, which is producing the series, carefully points out that Mazouz will not, at any point in the series, become Batman.
Another casting choice announced today is newcomer Camren Bicondova ("Battlefield America") in the role of a young Selena Kyle, an orphan street thief and pickpocket who will eventually become Catwoman.
Bicondova is part of the Hawaiian all-female dance crew 8 Flavahz so her physical dexterity will likely come into play in the role.

Young Master Wayne and Selina Kyle, Aka Catwoman, have been chosen for Fox’s Batman prequel, Gotham. David Mazouz will play the tragedy-stricken Bruce, shortly after the murder of his parents and now under the care of Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee). Mazouz is best known for his role in Fox’s short-lived, Ascap Award-winning sci-fi series Touch alongside Keifer Sutherland and Danny Glover. That show managed two seasons before being cancelled. Portraying pre-Catwoman Selina will be Camren Bicondova, a relative newcomer to Hollywood, whose major claim to fame is being a runner-up on MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew with her group, 8 Flavahs. She has also appeared in small roles in the horror flick Girlhouse and Cinedigm’s dance drama Battlefield America. Bicondova’s role as Selina will be as another orphaned teenager, well on her way to master thief as an expert pickpocket living on the streets of Gotham. With »

So far, the new Fox TV take on the Batman universe, Gotham – which rolls the clock back to the early days of Commissioner Gordon, Bruce Wayne and the rest – has focused on the casting of the older characters. We now know who will be playing the young Bruce Wayne and a teenage Selina “future Catwoman” Kyle, with David Mazouz and newcomer Camren Bicondova joining the cast.Gotham’s main story will be that of Gordon (Ben McKenzie), here a rookie detective looking to make his mark on the crime-ridden city and facing the nascent versions of the Batman supervillains we’ll come to know in the future: Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald “not yet the Penguin” Cobblepot among them. Also aboard are Donal Logue as detective Harvey Bullock, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen (Gordon’s boss), Erin Richards as our hero’s fiancée and Jada Pinkett Smith as Cobblepot’s tough gangster overseer. »
And it’s Jack Bauer’s kid from Touch. Maybe you didn’t watch Touch, in which case: good for you, my friend. TV shows about how everyone is connected by a seemingly random series of events never work out well (remember Jj Abrams’ 6 Degrees?). Anyway, I watched Touch. At the center of Touch was a maybe-autistic boy played by David Mazouz.
Mazouz was fine, I guess, he didn’t get many lines and playing maybe-autistic isn’t an indication on how he’ll do as the longest-running young Bruce Wayne or almost Batman (usually relegated to flashbacks at this age).
Mazouz is the last regular to be added to the Gotham cast with Sean Pertwee as Aflred Pennyworth, Ben McKenzie as Detective Gordon and Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, who will be Bruce’s age or something.
Not to mention Jada Pinkett Smith…or really to mention how strange this all seems. »
We’re pleased to announce the casting of the final two series regular roles — Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle — in the Fox/Wbtv drama project Gotham, which has a series commitment at the network.
· David Mazouz (Touch) has been cast as the preteen Bruce Wayne, sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents. Serious and soulful, young Bruce relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth and James Gordon.
(Note: As has been reported previously, Gotham is the origin story of Commissioner James Gordon and not a “Batman” show. Please note for stories that David is playing the young Bruce Wayne — not Batman.)
· Acting newcomer Camren Bicondova has been cast as Selina Kyle, a teenage orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. A street thief and skilled pickpocket, she’s dangerous when cornered.

After a mixed bag of big and small screen hits and misses, DC Comics has a steady stream of buzz-worthy projects in development – including Fox’s Gotham TV series. While Batman vs. Superman continues to be one of the most-anticipated films currently (and possibly ever) in production, the upcoming TV show, centered on Detective James Gordon (long before he allies with Batman as Commissioner of the Gotham City Police Department) houses a lot of potential – from an intriguing pre-Batman storyline, fan-favorite villains, to very capable casting additions.
Certain comic fans might have, at first, rolled their eyes when former O.C. star Ben McKenzie was cast as Gordon but anyone who saw the ...

A skilled pickpocket and street thief, [she] is pretty dangerous when cornered.”
Ben McKenzie will play the lead role of Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue is Detective Harvey Bullock, Zabryna Guevara is Captain Essen, Erin Richards is Gordon’s fiancee Barbara Kean, Sean Pertwee is Alfred Pennyworth, Robin Lord Taylor is Oswald Cobblepot (aka The Penguin), Drew Powell is Butch Gilzean, and Jada Pinkett-Smith plays Fish Mooney.

That lovely sound you hear is the final piece of Fox‘s Gotham casting puzzle falling neatly into place. Gotham, as we’ve been telling you, is an upcoming Batman origin series, focusing primarily on Commissioner Gordon back when he was Detective Gordon, the evil villains were getting their start, and Bruce Wayne was a preteen.
Today Deadline broke the news that David Mazouz, who played the lead character in Fox‘s Touch, and who is now 12, has been cast to play 12-year-old Bruce Wayne. He had reportedly entered a talent deal with Fox after the cancellation of Touch last May, and had been penciled in to play Bruce by Warner Bros. Television Studios early on.
So now we have it: Detective Gordon (Ben McKenzie), his wizened partner Detective Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), their boss Captain Essen (Zabryna Guevara), loyal Wayne family retainer and young Bruce protector Alfred (Sean Pertwee »

Casting continues on Fox’s highly anticipated drama series Gotham, as the all-important roles of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle have been filled. The series’ main focus is an origin story of Commissioner James Gordon (to be played by Ben McKenzie), but it will feature a young Bruce Wayne in a series regular supporting role. The network announced today that Touch actor David Mazouz will be playing a preteen Wayne, but the press release stresses the fact that Mazouz is playing a young Bruce Wayne and not Batman—it sounds like the Caped Crusader is unlikely to make an official appearance on the series; at least not in the near future. The official description of the Wayne character is as follows: David Mazouz (Touch) has been cast as the preteen Bruce Wayne, sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents. Serious and soulful, young Bruce »

Variety gave a description of the character, saying that he's a "boy who leans on his butler Alfred and Commissioner James Gordon for guidance after his wealthy parents are murdered." Just a reminder, Mazouz will not become Batman in the series. That's something that won't happen until later down the line.
They've also cast Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, described as "a teenage orphan and street thief who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable." As you all know, she eventually grows up to be Catwoman.
The series focuses on a young Jim Gordon and his adventures in law enforcement as he witnesses the rise of Gotham's villains whom Batman will later encounter.

We know that there were only a couple of major roles left to be cast in Gotham, and now the series which focuses on a young Detective Jim Gordon has found both Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle. Both characters will be considerably more youthful than their comic book counterparts, something which is to be expected as Gotham takes place years before Wayne becomes Batman.
Twelve year old Touch star David Mazouz is set to play Bruce Wayne, the son of Thomas and Martha Wayne. He’s sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic slayings of his wealthy parents and is described as serious and soulful, relying on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth and James Gordon.

Not exactly. David Mazouz has been cast as the preteen Bruce Wayne in Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham. The 13-year-old actor will depict Wayne after his wealthy parents are killed, but before he dons the cape and cowl (which won’t happen until the show’s final episode). Mazouz previously co-starred with Kiefer Sutherland on Fox’s Touch.
Mazouz has been cast along with newcomer Camren Bicondova (photo below), who will play a teenage Selina Kyle (aka not-yet-Catwoman). Her character is described as a “teenage orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable; a street thief and skilled pickpocket, »

“Gotham” criminals beware: the Fox drama has cast the young man who will one day take you down. David Mazouz has been cast as the preteen Bruce Wayne, who has been sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents. Serious and soulful, young Bruce relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee) and Det. James Gordon (Ben McKenzie). Based upon characters published by DC Comics, “Gotham” is a Batman prequel that explores the origin stories of Commissioner Gordon and the villains that made Gotham infamous.
