‘Gotham’: Bruce Wayne’s To Go Down A ‘Dark’ Path
Bruce is currently trying to come to terms with his parents brutal death, and David talks up Bruce’s “interesting” grieving process.
“In the first half of the season, he’s going to be going through a very interesting, unique grieving process, to say the least,” David told HollywoodLife.com. “He’s going to be doing stuff you wouldn’t really think he would do. He’s going to be dark. He’s going to be angry. He’s going to be lonely. He’s going to be scared.”
Well, if we know anything about Batman, it’s that he’s dark (in a totally good way, of course).
“He’s going to have an obsession to find his parents killer or just find any meaning to their death,” David continued. “He’s going to be very, very angry at the world and everybody.”
However, this “dark” journey won’t last for long. Could young Bruce start his crime-fighting a little earlier than originally intended?
All David could dish was, “Maybe.”
