“These two are such a great actors and have such a rapport on the screen,” said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “David’s evolution on Gotham from young orphan to teenage detective has been fascinating to observe, and I can’t wait to see what he’ll do with the character of Bruce Wayne next season. And Sean’s well-dressed and manicured tough-guy father figure is such a fun mix of conflicting roles, which he performs wonderfully. I’m personally thrilled to have them both as a guests of the show, as I’m sure our fans will be.”
