Bruce Wayne has certainly come a long way from the naive boy he was during the early episodes of the Fox's show. Fans are now wondering, how far he is from putting on the iconic cape and embrace his alter-ego as Batman.

When asked if this year Bruce will become Batman on Gotham, executive producer Ken Woodruff teased that season 3 will "lay the foundation for all those Batman things." He told Entertainment Weekly, "Our actor [is] turning 16, so he's getting close. We're not quite getting to the point of Batman, but we're really focusing on trying to get to see different sides of Bruce Wayne and to lay the foundation for all those Batman things. "

"He's going to be much more active. Near the end of last season, he spent time on the streets with Selina Kyle. We didn't show a lot of that, but this year we're going to show what the gains from that experience were — learning how to pick locks, break into things, be silent like a bat. We definitely wanted to show that progression for Bruce," Woodruff added.
