On January 31st Shane took part in a Build Series interview to promote his role on Gotham and it is hands down one of my favourite interviews of Shane’s to date! He chatted about being cast as Eduardo, the costume and finding his Bane voice. As well as that he also discussed past roles in films such as The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and took a few audience questions. I have added photos of Shane at the interview as well as arriving and after when he signed autographs and posed for photos with fans. Make sure you also check out the video of the interview below if you haven’t already.
On Thursday 31st January Shane was a guest on The TODAY Show to promote his upcoming role on Gotham.

As the premiere date for the fifth and final season of Gotham approaches, FOX have released their first teaser trailer for the upcoming season – and in it with get our first glimpse of Shane as Bane! It is only two short clips with Shane getting the famous Bane mask which fuels the venom into him giving him his superhuman strength and speed – but enough to tease as we wait for more trailers to come, hopefully with more Shane!

I have added 14 HQ pictures of Shane on set of Gotham filming with co-stars David Mazouz and Camren Bicondova – you can also catch a glimpse of Shane and his stunt double in costume too. Beware that the set does contain spoilers so if you want to avoid, take this as your warning.
A bittersweet moment today for Gotham fans as the premiere date for the fifth and final season was announced, along with the news that the original 10 episode order has been increased to 12! You can read the press release from TVLine below:
Gotham is going out with a bigger bang than expected.
In revealing its midseason plan on Monday, Fox announced that the fifth and final season of its Batman prequel series will run 12 episodes, up from the original order of 10. As such, Gotham will end its run with an even 100 episodes, which at the very least is appreciated by OCD types such as myself.
Gotham‘s end will begin on Thursday, Jan. 3 at 8/7c, where it will again lead into The Orville. Source: TVLine.com

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
