We are two weeks away from the final season of Gotham on FOX and before then FOX has dropped a full length that is packed beginning to end with classic villains from Bane, to Jeremiah’s probably-soon-to-be Joker, the badguys have taken over the city, and are clearly energizing this last season of the series.
Check out the full four-minute trailer
Shane West’s Bane makes his debut in the trailer, shown first as an ex-military operative named Eduardo Dorrance, who has been brought to Gotham City to help Jim Gordon save what’s left of it. At one point he tells Jim, “Shock and awe is my default.” Of course, that translates directly to his new Bane persona, which we see in action at the end of the trailer. A complete re-visioning of the origin of super villain
We also get to see Ace Chemicals, the famous plant where the Joker was created in the comics. Gotham is giving Jeremiah Valeska his own version of that story, as he and Bruce Wayne fight on the crosswalk above the glowing green chemicals.
And finally, it looks as though we get a glimpse of Gotham‘s Harley Quinn, played by Francesca Root-Dodson. She appeared as Ecco, the close friend and right-hand-woman to Jeremiah last season, but she’s gone through quite the transformation. As you can see in the trailer, she is riding around on roller skates, carrying a bat over her shoulder, wearing white makeup, and calling people “Puddin’.” Yeah, that’s most definitely Harley Quinn.
Gotham‘s fifth and final season premieres on Thursday, January 3, 2019 at 8 pm ET on FOX.
