Fans have taken to social media to share their thoughts on Shane West’s Bane costume on Gotham.
The fifth and final season of Gotham will introduce the iconic Batman villain named Bane, who is infamous for breaking the Caped Crusader’s back in the comics. Yesterday, Fox released the first images of Shane West in full costume as Bane and most fans are not impressed with the latest depiction of the powerful antagonist. While there are a handful of fans who approve of the outfit, most have taken to Twitter to negatively compare Gotham‘s Bane to other masked characters, such as Darth Vader, and have likened the suit to a poor Halloween costume.
You can check out some of the reactions below!
Gotham’s Bane is like if you went to Walmart and bought a cheap Darth Vader costume and ripped the top of the mask off and called it Bane ? I can’t rn pic.twitter.com/iXm5DPw01U

This is supposed to be the Gotham version of Bane? lmao
He's got the eye makeup of someone from the movie Hackers

What do you think of the costume? Share your thoughts below!
With Gotham on the brink of total anarchy and cut off from the outside world, only Jim Gordon, Bruce Wayne and a handful of heroes remain behind to retake the city. Inspired by the “No Man’s Land” arc from the comics, villains including Penguin, the Riddler, the Sirens and Jeremiah have taken claim on various regions of the city. Will order be restored, or will chaos reign in Gotham?
Gotham stars Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, and Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma.
Gotham season 5 will premiere on FOX in 2019.
