In the inaugural season finale of Gotham, young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) and Alfred (Sean Pertwee) discover a hidden lair beneath the mansion. Now TV Insider gives us our first look at what will one day become the famous Batcave that Batman will use in his war on crime. “It changes everything in Bruce’s life,” Mazouz shared.
“It changes how he sees Alfred, the criminal side of Gotham, even how he sees his parents.” Mazouz added. But keep in mind, this is not yet “The” Batcave, but only the beginnings of where Bruce will eventually wage his war on crime as Batman. “It’s definitely not the Batcave,” warns Mazouz. “What is down there are clues to Thomas Wayne’s secret life and what he was trying to do before being killed.”
Originally, there was only a secret tunnel that ran underground between Wayne Manor and a dusty old barn where the Batmobile and Batmicrolite were kept. Later, in Batman #12 (August–September 1942), Bill Finger mentioned “secret underground hangars.” In 1943, the writers of the first Batman movie serial, titled Batman, gave the Caped Crusader a complete underground crime lab and introduced it in the second chapter entitled “The Bat’s Cave”. The entrance was via a secret passage through a grandfather clock and included bats flying around. (Source: Wikipedia)
