Back in September, we reported that Shane West would be playing a villainous recurring role on the upcoming fifth and final season of the Batman prequel drama series on Fox. Producers have now confirmed that West will be playing Batman villain Bane. The announcement was made at Sunday’s New York Comic Con panel.

West, will be introduced as Eduardo Dorrance, who served alongside Jim Gordon in the Army. Dorrance returns to Gotham and offers to help Gordon bring law and order to the crime-ridden metropolis with a team of elite soldiers. But Gordon soon realizes that “Dorrance’s true intentions in Gotham are much darker and more evil than he could have believed.”

Fox also released the first teaser trailer for Season 5, which comes at the tail end of the following sizzle reel.

I agree. You can that the stories as canon. Some seasons are very slow, but overall the show is very good. 

Interesting to see more information about the final season. but...full of spoilers man!

Its best to look at it as an Elseworld storyline. If you try to fit it into the grand Batman mythos, youll do your self a disservice. Its far from perfect, but the first couple seasons are very entertaining. Alfred and the Penguin are awesome, but the Wayne kid is annoying to me.

Ive heard a lot of good things about Alfred, especially seeing as hes the son of one of the former Doctors in Doctor Who... So, Ive been somewhat curious to see his work on the show.

I have to admit that Ive never watched a single episode of Gotham... And, I really find the concept, Batman villains wreaking havoc in Gotham, before Batman is even a thing, really strange. It kinda doesnt make sense to me. Thats not to say that these villains just suddenly appeared the same day Bruce first donned the cape and cowl. But, I dunno. Maybe Ill sit down one of these days and take a look at it.

This all sounds great, definitely enjoyed the early seasons of Gotham, despite Gordon constantly growling.
