Photos And Video Of Tom Hardy As Bane From The Set Of The Dark Knight Rises

20 Comments

Here’s a bunch of new looks at Tom Hardy as the villain Bane from the set of “The Dark Knight Rises” in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. First up is a collection of stills of Hardy standing around in costume during a break from filming. I can’t help but think he looks like some sort of “Road Warrior” extra (maybe Hardy is practicing for his role in the next “Mad Max”, if that ever actually happens), what with the mask and the trenchcoat and the shaved head. The pics come from of Just Jared.

And if you scroll down through the photos, next up is some footage of the set as they filmed a scene that takes place during a prison break. You can see director Christopher Nolan, he’s the guy in khakis and dark blue suit jacket. It’s honestly not all that exciting, and nothing super interesting happens, but it might be worth a look if you’re into this sort of thing. The film comes from Bleeding Cool.

People all over the place are already hating on the costume, what do you all think?

    I want him to have a better mask, like in the tv show and comics

      you are an idiot…it would look like a joke. Have you seen Batman and Robin? Remember what Bane looked like? Ya, it sucked. Nolan’s is better looking.

    Sweet!! “Trés” Realistic, whats not to like (save the trench coat)?

  • Epic_Myth

    The mask is the only thing I’m not in love with. Seems like they just should have went with the “under-the-eyes” approach rather than the strap in the middle of his face.

    Looks like the guy from Mad Max lol

    Out of context I really can’t judge. Although I’m not feeling the trench coat and his vest thingie, it will all come together I’m sure. The mask will need a solid explaination of course but I see it working. I would have liked a more paramilitary look for his upper body to match the SWAT looking pants and boots. I see that they have one glove not sure what that is all about. I guess we’ll see soon enough.

    I might sound a little dum and i know post production will prove me wrong, but… I am rather concerned with his size, he’s not big enough.

    This is how big he should be:

      The Rock would have been perfect look wise! I think that Nolan wanted someone who could take the acting to the next level like Heath Ledger. Hardy is a phenomenal actor. As for his size, with camera angles and lighting they can accomplish a larger stature. That coupled with Hardy’s ability to bulk up (see Bronson for proof) will bring it all together.

        You’re right, and specualtion is that when he injects venom the trench coat and the rest will come off and show off his muscles (the trailer and official first look proves that)!!

        • Juggernaut

          Exactly. That last scene in the teaser trailer was what I had always envisioned Bane being like in a live action film. The way that his entrance seemed to eclipse the scene and having Batman backing up and looking up at him in awe was great!

    He’s only wearing the trench coat because it’s supposed to be snow

    I’m not judging til I actually see a scene with him and even then I’m gonna hold judgement til the film. Hardy is a big dude, see “Bronson” and “Warrior” and a very good actor. Nolan knows what hes doing. I trust in him, the cast and the writers. Maybe those things on the mask are what inject the venom, and its an inhalant now. who knows.
