We’ve been following the news that Bane was coming to the final season of Gotham for a while now and now we have a full look at him.

Played by actor Shane West, Gotham writer/producer Tze Chun shared the image above and it’s, well, it’s very different.

The costume looks more in line with that worn by Tom Hardy in The Dark knight Rises than in the character’s appearance in the comics and, while it’s not really very Bane-like, we can’t help feeling this is more of a proto-Bane look.

Anyway, the fifth and final season of Gotham will be returning in 2019.

Let us know what you think of the man who will someday break the bat…

And now EW has revealed a better look at him…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. 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….
