First Look At Shane West As Bane In “Gotham”


A couple of weeks ago it was announced at New York Comic Con that during the final season of GOTHAM on Fox, we will be getting the mercenary Bane, played by Shane West. Now we have our first look at one of the Dark Knight’s greatest foes.

Check out the picture below.


The vest and mask both seem to be plays off of the ones in which Tom Hardy wore in The Dark Knight Rises when he portrayed the super villain. It seems that the vest may be the delivery system for the super steroid, venom (not to be confused with the other comic book character Hardy portrays).


It was also revealed at the panel during comic con that we would see Bane break a back as many know from the comic book. However it won’t be Batman’s back that’s broken it will that of Bruce Wayne’s guardian and butler, Alfred.

What are your thoughts on the look of Bane?

The Dark Knight Will Arrive in Final Season of ‘Gotham’


Warner Bros came through with some exhilerating news at New York Comic Con. It was news that the fifth and final season of Fox’s Gotham will be bringing in another main villain of the caped crusader and even one point breaker of the bats back “Bane”. We will also get the official arrival of Gothams protector himself, Batman.

Along with the Dark Knight beginning his crusade to save Gotham, many of his foes will be ready to take down the bat in season 5 including the return of Zsasz, Mad Hatter, Scarecrow, Hugo Strange — and Penguin will have a dog! We are also receiving new villains this season including Magpie and the aforementioned Bane played by Shane West. That was a blockbuster announcement

There has been plenty of speculation that West was playing Bane, a role that Tom Hardy portrayed in  The Dark Knight Rises. The news was confirmed today. Along with the confirmation word came out that we are getting a twist on Bane’s origin which will be interesting to see.  It was also revealed that Bane will break Alfred’s back this season,  a big plot point from the comics. However kind of wish thst was not revealed and it was kept a surprise.

No official premier date for the final season was announced as of yet.
