Gotham’s latest casting could link directly to Bane

September 12th, 2018 by Marc Comments

We found out a few weeks ago that Gotham’s final fifth season would introduce one of the only characters in the DC comic lore to beat Batman… Bane.

And it seems that it may go into who Bane is exactly with the latest bit of casting.

Shane West, star of Nikita, has been hired to play a character call Eduardo Dorrance, a character who so far being kept hush hush (pun intended): Eduardo Dorrance 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.”

However, comic fans will recognise the name Edmund Dorrance – very close to Eduardo Dorrance – as the villain King Snake, who also happens to be the father of Bane!


Does this mean Bane’s dad will be a threat to Gotham or perhaps in the world of Gotham – which is firmly Elseworlds territory – this IS Bane.

Let us know your thoughts…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
