Gotham star David Mazouz recently pitched another Flashpoint episode as a way for the Fox show to cross paths with the DCTV universe. David plays Bruce Wayne who is one of the series’ main protagonists. In the show, Bruce Wayne deals with the aftermath of his parents death and he has yet to become Batman.
The CW has the main cluster of DC TV shows with Arrow, The Flash, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and even though Supergirl was originally a CBS production, it eventually jumped networks. Gotham is the only remaining TV show that is yet to join the Arrowverse, which is understandable considering that they’re on two different networks.
David has an idea on how to bridge the gap between Bruce Wayne pre-Batman and the bigger DCTV shared franchise. The 16-year-old actor was so excited for the possibility of a Gotham and Arrowverse crossover that he has even pitched a way to make it work. This is his pitch:
First of all, if there’s going to be a crossover, they come to Gotham. That’s kind of a must-have, because nobody in Gotham can time travel yet. … Maybe there could be another kind of Flashpoint where Flash runs back in time and goes to Gotham and maybe tries to stop Bruce Wayne’s parents’ murder from happening. Maybe not the traditional ‘Bruce Wayne gets murdered instead and Thomas becomes Batman thing,’ but something along those lines where the whole world gets whack and it’s up to Flash to fix things in Gotham.
It’s an interesting idea, but it will ultimately boil down to the business side of things. Perhaps if a lot of people get on board there might be a chance this could actually happen.
Gotham will return sometime in 2018 with “Pieces of a Broken Mirror” on FOX.
