Official Bane photo: Dark Knight Rises!

Ok, so The Dark Knight Rises is no stranger to rumors: Eddie Murphy as the riddler, villain rumors, casting rumors, it never ends. But now we have our first look at Tom Hardy as Bane. Click the jump to check it out...



     Yes yes, I know, you don't want dramatic shadows cloaking the first officially announced villain in one of the biggest franchises in cinema today. You want a full on head shot so we can see what we're dealing with. But this is a good first look at something from the Dark Knight's sequel. Throw up all the set photos you want, but a cloaked in shadow pic of one of the main villains trumps a Gotham swat vehicle on set any day. Plus this shows people who might not be familiar with Bane what they have to look forward to. (Not everyone's read Knightfall ya know) But as impressive as this is, I think the question on everyones mind that requires more photo proof is "Can Anne Hathaway really pull off Catwoman"?...Come on, give us a pic. I know a pic can't capture acting prowess, but I'm just sayin Anne Hathaway in a skin tight catwoman outfit might just win over some naysayers. Not that I'm particularly a naysayer.....I just want to see a pic......

  4. rengie123:its looking good so far i wonder if there going to brake batmans back like in the comics that would be cool. btw if you wont to see bane in action theres a great Young Justice episode with him in it and hes voice by Danny Trejo

  5. Hugo Strange, Bane, and the beginnings of Cat Woman... Too bad the Joker couldn't be in this one as planned. :/

    Can't wait for this movie!

  6. "Click the jump to ckeck it out..." Just for if you want all your updates to be accurately spelt.

    The picture looks good, i'm not unpleased with it. The real test of course will be seeing if Bane's character is portrayed in a good way or not.

    "Spelt" - a hexaploid species of wheat. Spelt was an important staple in parts of Europe from the Bronze Age to medieval times; it now survives as a relict crop in Central Europe and has found a new market as a health food. Spelt is sometimes considered a subspecies of the closely related species common wheat.

    Just in case you want your statements to be accurately understood.

  11. I love this! Already this has surpassed Batman and Robin's Bane. This movie will rule, perhaps he can steal the spotlight from the Joker who I have grown tired of.

    "Spelt" is the way of saying "spelled" in England, Australia and every other derivative or creole of English EXCEPT for American English, where it is "spelled."

    I imagine it's something to do with most Americans struggling with the concept of irregular verbs (Keyword most, some of them are extremely intellectual. You seem like one also, however just know that "Spelled" is not necessarily correct.)

  14. awesome, much better then last time, its good he's not wearing a full mask, could'nt see tom hardy's great acting skills.

  15. Just Awsame look, think Bane will challange Batman in a way no villan has done before. With wits and with pure brute force strenght. Like in TDK Batman could annihilate all jokers henchmen in the room (including joker himself) in like less then a minute. Yea, I dont really see it going as well with somebody as Bane.
