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 hate NOTHING on this pictures and videos.

    I never expected Bane looks like in the comics (we already had a taste of that in Batman & Robin), so the look and outfit looks good to me.

    What I’m really waiting is to see him in action. He’s personality.

    So excited!!!!

      I totally agree! Based on what we’re seeing… which is pretty much nothing – I love it!

      I’m not quite sure what to make of all the complaining about size etc., were any of you complaining that Ian McKellan is only a few inches taller than Elijah Wood?? CAMERA ANGLES PEOPLE! Based on anything we’ve seen from Chris Nolan have we ever seen wide angle sweeping full body action shots? NO! Relax!

      With regards to the costume – I’m digging it too! I love the mask, I’m going to throw out a guess that the venom is introduced to him as some sort of cure for an ailment (respiratory?) but that also has “other” side effects… I’m also betting the one glove is where his venom injector is.

      But in the end, none of us have any idea what their take on Bane is going to be until we see the film – but I for one am glad that we won’t be seeing some CGI guy run around in a singlet and luchadore mask!
