The first official Gotham photo of fifteen year old Camren Bicandova all dressed up as Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, has hit the Internet along with some on set full costume pictures that include her beside a young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz).
Here’s the Official character still:
The character of Gotham‘s Selina Kyle is described as:
A teenage orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. A street thief and skilled pickpocket, she’s dangerous when cornered.
Do you think the picture above captures that description? The spiked choker, fingerless gloves, and fishnet leggings does lean in that direction. Who wants to bet that she’ll have lots of snarky lines in the series? I’m looking forward to seeing Selina and Gordan meet. You can be sure Gordan will try to help Selina get off the streets of Gotham, but I’m also sure she’ll be very suspicious of Gordan’s motives.
There’s also some great on set pictures by Jose Perez of Pacific Coast News that will have a bunch of Cosplayers running to the local fabric store to start recreating this new young Catwoman costume.
That is a great transition costume for the young Catwoman. She can make all those cat-like moves and in the shadows, she’ll be that much harder to see in all that black. It also has a good baseline quality to it with the hoodie and goggles. One can see how it would easily transform into the modern, sleeker, leather, costume Selina Kyle later wears.
We saw how Donal Logue is going to look as Detective Harvey Bullock yesterday, and both costume looks are fantastic. It really raises my hopes for the series.
Here is the on set picture with Selina Kyle and Bruce Wayne:
What do you think of the costume?
Here’s a little bonus video of Carmen dancing to Happy, I bet she did the same dance when told she got the Selina Kyle role:
