As revealed by TVLine, the young Bruce Wayne will be seeing the start of his journey to becoming the Caped Crusader that fans knew him to become one day. What he will discover in the “cave” he managed to open in the season finale will bring to light the real personality of his father, and the real Wayne Enterprises beneath the surface.
“It will cause Alfred to train Bruce, and the development of Batman will start,” shared actor David Mazouz.
As for the relationship of Bruce Wayne and the young Catwoman Selina “Cat” Kyle, it seems that they will still be the same kind of friends that they are for the meantime. “Their relationship is pretty much the same” once they reconnect, Mazouz said.
However, it won’t be long until the young Selina falls prey to the charms of socialite Silver St. Cloud. “Eventually, something will stop Selena from interacting with Bruce,” he added.
As for the Riddler, this new season will make him take on his road to villainy more than he was in season one. “Edward [Nygma]’s darker voice is going to manifest itself,” said actor Cory Michael Smith, “and very literally there will be two Eds, contending with each other.”

Actress Michelle Veintimilla will be playing the role of Firefly and her alter ego Bridgit Pike in a two-episode long arc of Gotham. The show will be taking on the character’s story as she brings her way to being a supervillain, with a team-up with the young Catwoman Selina Kyle.
