Gotham’s Batman throws his hat in the ring to be the DCEU’s Robin…

September 12th, 2017 by Marc Comments

We don’t tend to report on fan casting and speculation too often but sometimes you can’t help but think ‘yeah, that works!’.

Such is the case here.

Gotham star David Mazouz, who plays Bruce Wayne, has thrown his hat into the ring to play Damien Wayne, the child of Bruce Wayne and a future Robin in the DC Cinematic Universe.

And you know what? We can totally see it!

No matter what your thoughts on Gotham are, it’s hard to deny that Mazouz is knocking it out of the park as the young Wayne and – apparently – the young Batman.

Here’s his Tweet with the hashtag #DavidForDamien.

We know it won’t happen as he is already a star on the Gotham DC world but… it could be awesome!

Who would you like to see as Damien? Let s know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
