After those amazing on set pictures from earlier, Fox have officially released their first look portrait of Shane as Bane – check out Entertainment Weekly’s exclusive photo in our gallery!

Ready to see the official first look at Bane on Fox’s Gotham? This is much more evolved from the earlier leaked images you might have seen floating around online.  Bane is coming to the drama series in the show’s fifth and final season, and below is actor Shane West (Nikita, Salem) in costume admit some fiery destruction.

Bane will be introduced as Eduardo Dorrance, a former Army friend of Jim Gordon’s (Ben McKenzie), who is gradually transformed into the supervillain.

With the actor’s red-rimmed-eyes and semi-transparent mask and all those cyberpunk mechanics going on there in that breastplate, the look stands as a clear contrast from the best-known version of the character, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises take as played by Tom Hardy.

Still, you might say this guy still looks like he was born in darkness?

Gotham‘s Bane was described by showrunner John Stephens as “very, very strong, and very angry … we made him integral to the fact of coming in as a special ops government agent.” Season 5 will continue the “No Man’s Land” storyline from the comics, where Gotham City is isolated by the U.S. government from the rest of the country..

“We pick up at the top of season five, at the conclusion of No Man’s Land, Day 365,” Stephens said. “Then, we cycle backwards to day 87, three months into No Man’s Land where Jim has created his green zone and wants his reunification. We’re catching up, and for the first nine episodes, we’re always catching up to that first scene we see.” – EW.com

We finally have our first look at Shane in costume as Bane and he looks amazing! A mix between the DC comics and the 2012 Tom Hardy styled Bane, one thing is clear and that is that Shane looks every bit the terrifying villain who is about to bring Gotham to it’s knees.  Check out the article from Metro.co.uk below which has some details about what was happening on set as well as 22 HQ pictures in our gallery thanks to my amazing friend Jasper so make sure to check out his site for fellow DC actor Brenton Thwaites.

He’s easily the most terrifying villain in the DC Universe and now masked giant Bane is heading to Gotham. The fifth and final season for FOX’s DC comic series is now well underway, with Shane West being pictured in Bane’s tanked up armour signature mask on the set of Gotham – and he looks absolutely terrifying. In one shot, Bane can be seen crushing a soldier’s skull with his bare hands during a gruesome showdown, surrounded by trucks and police cars, but he couldn’t give a damn. Thankfully, in another shot, actor Shane looks pretty chill as he jokes around with Batman star Ben Mackenzie. Still, wouldn’t trust him in that outfit though. Shane’s character arrives to Gotham as Eduardo Dorrance, but later becomes Bane.

‘He’s integral to the resolution of No Man’s Land,’ showrunner John Stephens told Den of Geek. ‘While keeping elements from the books like Peña Duro and Venom … we made him integral to the fact of coming in as a special ops government agent.’ Last week Shane managed to spark all sorts of excitement when he shared a picture of his breakfast on Twitter. Though, it wasn’t his early morning meal which had fans up in arms, but what appeared to be Bane’s glove was conveniently placed alongside his ‘brekkie’, in the first look at his famous get-up. Naturally, details of Gotham’s final outing are being kept well under wraps but during the recent panel at New York Comic Con, John confirmed the 10th and concluding episode of the comic book series would see a huge time jump set 10 years later.
