Photos: GOTHAM Season 5 Character Portraits

As the premiere for Gotham season 5 approaches, FOX have released the first character portraits and we are lucky enough to have one of Shane as Edurado Dorrance – the man who becomes the infamous Bane!  TVLine have shared some portraits – which I will be replacing as soon as the HQ version is available.  But make sure to head over to the gallery and check it out.

Gotham‘s assorted heroes and villains appear steeled — and look quite steely — for battle in this exclusive first look at the Fox drama’s final batch of cast portraitsDavid Mazouz, Ben McKenzie, Robin Lord Taylor and Camren Bicondova are just a few of the dozen series vets featured in the (morally) gray-tinted photos, which also highlight a makeover for Cameron Monaghan’s Jeremiah Valeska.

Subtitled “Gotham: Legend of the Dark Knight” and premiering Thursday, Jan. 3 at 8/7c, the Batman prequel series’ final, 12-episode run is described as “a farewell event that will focus on Bruce Wayne’s ultimate transformation into the Caped Crusader, as Jim Gordon tries to hold together a city on the edge of chaos‎.”

The fifth and final season will also introduce new villains, including the iconic Bane (Nikita‘s Shane West), who is also featured among the cast portraitsGotham Season 5 will again on Thursday nights lead into The Orville (which will air its Season 2 premiere on Sunday, Dec. 30, leading out of an NFL doubleheader). – TVLine.com
