Gotham’s been introducing Batman bad-guys like it’s nobody’s business. So why not add a good guy for a change? Or so says the series’ own Bruce Wayne, David Mazouz. The young actor thinks that a young Clark Kent would make an excellent addition to the show and he thinks that he’s found a way to do it.
“I think it’d be really cool to have a young Clark Kent on the show,” the thespian explained in a recent interview with IGN. “To have a 15-year-old Clark Kent. I know in Batman v Superman they played it like Metropolis and Gotham are twin cities, so it wouldn’t be that hard to take a boat ride over for Clark…” While there haven’t been any references as to the existence of Metropolis in the series, it doesn’t mean that the producers should rule out by mentioning them being in close proximity to one another and form a tighter bond with others in the DC universe.
Mazouz’s idea as to how best to introduce the Boy of Steel to the citizens of Gotham is as such: “You know, Clark Kent as a teenager saves a busload of kids from drowning, right?” he said. “It would just be really cool to just start a scene in the GCPD and just pan, like start on a newspaper that says, ’15-Year-Old Boy in Metropolis Saves Busload of Kids From Drowning.’ And then just pan up and have a regular scene that has nothing to do with the … throw a little hint.”
I don’t know about Mazouz’s idea. If you splash the existence of a super-powered teenager all over the front pages of newspapers, then the world would know about Clark’s powers and his existence. Maybe he should leave the ideas up to the writer’s on this one.
