In SYFY WIRE's latest casting roundup, Shane West joins Gotham, possibly as one of the biggest of the Big Bads, and the sci-fi thriller Warning adds two more. So let's get into it, shall we?

First up, Deadline reports that Nikita and Salem alum Shane West will play Eduardo Dorrance in the final season of the Batman prequel. Dorrance is an old war buddy of Jim Gordon's who returns to the city with an elite army in tow to help restore order to the streets of Gotham City. Eventually, Gordon sees Dorrance's true intentions, and they most certainly are not good.

It's being speculated that Dorrance will be the son of Sir Edmund Dorrance, a character known as King Snake in Batman comic lore. Oh, and he's also the father of Bane, which could mean that West will help close out Gotham with a bang. Granted, nothing's been confirmed yet, so take that with a grain of bat-salt.

Speaking of Gotham, former cast member Samuel Benedict (pictured above), who played Jervis Tetch, has joined the sci-fi thriller Warning, according to Deadline. Lana Condor, who played Jubilee in X-Men: Apocalypse, has also been added to the cast. At this point, there's no information on the roles either will be playing.

What is known is that they'll be working alongside the previously announced James D'Arcy, Charlotte Le Bon, Mena Massoud, and Spider-Man: Homecoming's Laura Harrier. Warning will mark the feature film debut of director Agata Alexander, based on a script by her, Rob Michaelson, and Jason Kaye.

Very little is known about Alexander's Warning in general, other than that it will be in the vein of Black Mirror, examining themes of loneliness and fulfillment in the near future.
