Empire finally reveals what Batman and Bane will look like in The Dark Knight Rises

11.21.2011

Regardless of who you voted for, Empire has nevertheless revealed both of their DARK KNIGHT RISES covers this weekend.

And while I suppose these might be a big deal to "normals" who aren't day in and day out exposed to the minutia of film development, to the rest of us WHO HAVE BEEN SEEING BATMAN AND BANE FIGHTING IN THE STREETS OF PITTSBURGH, LOS ANGELES, AND NEW YORK FOR F*CKING MONTHS NOW... HEY LOOK, IT'S BATMAN AND BANE OMG!!!

But seriously, Catwoman aside, where are the official production stills for this film? After months of filming, nothing! Even THE AVENGERS - which has been shooting practically at the same time - has given us something to chew on.

Warner Bros, give your base something it can use!

I think Batman is holding some new kind of radar gun to catch speeders. They're breaking the law as well.

So Batman's "portable tanning gun" is the new "Batman's voice"? I can see the parodies already. I say he's holding something that can blow someone's f**king head into oblivion. And he's still not wearing hockey pads.

I'm not sure why some people dislike the Bane costume. Which would you prefer, this or a black tanktop that gives emphasis to his nipples? I f**king love this take on Bane. He's real. He looks like someone you could see terrorizing your street in real-life, just like Nolan's movies have always been. If Nolan's Batman trilogy was more comical and 'larger than life', I would have loved a more comic-like Bane. This one fits perfectly into the series, at least for me.

Everyone is split before the trailer...

I for one think Bane looks incredibly realistic, creative and fucking mean. Still photos don't say jack-shit, it's all in Hardy's performance.

even though i'm still gonna watch this, like i watch almost every movie released specifically comic movies, i am happy to learn others do not like bane's design, i think it is one of the worst designs of the character, the only worse design to me was scarcrow. nolan makes great films, but he needs to work on designing villians i will agree however the joker design worked because even though he wasn't bleached he still however maintained the look. either way bring on the trailer

Looking forward to the film, but, man, nothing about Bane has ever excited me. He just strikes me as coming from that erroneous "bigger=badder" mindset some writers play into.

Fucking awesome!

I love how Bane's skin appears to be slightly hemorrhaging from his large size. Kick-ass!

I do like the design of Bane, but there is no way in hell the villains in this will beat Ledgar's Joker! Hopefully the script will be so goddamn sweet, that it won't matter! Can't wait for a trailer!

God that Bane design sucks and is it just me or does Tom Hardy's skin look really pasty (or acne-riddled) and covered by heavy make up in that photo?
