As Gotham gears up for production of its final season, Shane West, who portrays Eduardo Dorrance, has recently teased what could be Gotham‘s version of classic Batman villain Bane.
West shared a sepia-toned video of himself on Twitter wearing a mask over his mouth. The video is only five seconds but was enough confirmation for fans that West will be bringing forth his take on the villain in Gotham‘s final bow.
The casting of West as Eduardo Dorrance caught the eye of many a die-hard DC fan earlier this summer as Dorrance is typically known as the father of Bane. Gotham‘s official description describes him as Jim Gordon’s old Army buddy who may hold some dark secrets. Fans have even used some of the upcoming season’s episode titles as clues to Dorrance’s transformation into Bane within the show’s final episodes.
Andrew Sellon, the actor who portrays Mr. Penn, said in an interview with Bam! Smack! Pow! earlier this year, “If you thought Gotham was a tough town before, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. No Man’s Land is literally a war zone, and absolutely no one is safe. There’s danger – and potentially death – around every corner. But somehow out of all the anarchy and violence, a couple of heroes are rising.”
Sellon continues to say that, “The vibe on set continues to be amazing, if bittersweet. We’re all going to miss being together big-time, but we’re cherishing every wacky moment. I’ve been on a lot of sets; this one remains extraordinary for its commitment to the vision and its close-knit family vibe. What an amazing family we have.”

Finally, Sellon believes that Gotham‘s short season this time around has allowed the cast to really give it their all and create an ending for fans that will send the show out in style.
Gotham returns to FOX in early 2019 for its fifth and final season.
