Our clearest look at Bane yet on the set of The Dark Knight Rises

Aug. 15, 2011by: Paul Tassi

Bane wants to know, "ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?"

These new images have surfaced from the set of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES which show the clearest look at Tom Hardy's Bane we could possibly hope to get. We had some earlier from a distrance during a fight scene, but now we can pretty much see every nuance of his costume in these shots.

This strikes me as strange. Has anyone else noticed the leaks on TDKR are pouring forth at an incredibly rapid pace? Is Nolan being less secretive than usual, or are the press and fans just that bound and determined to smuggle images and video from the set? I wish some of this stuff had just been left a surprise, and it almost seems like we're getting TOO much material a year ahead of time.

This is also the second time we've seen Bane grab a microphone in as many scenes. Is he going to be a big orator in the film, or is he merely addressing the crowd on set?

Extra Tidbit: The debate continues, is this on venom or not? Will he get any bigger than this?

alritey im not sure when this thing began shooting, but im thinking his bulky scenes have already been shot (the ones where hes already on venom or whatevr that makes him stronger) and this is now tom hardy very toned and a few pounds less.... at least thats what im seeing since hardy did look bigger than this a few weeks back

and obviously they have shot a handful of scenes already since they were in the teaser trailer, and bane did look more menacing in that last scene in the teaser....

maybe these leaks are "all part of the plan"

how do you follow through on one of the most hyped movies ever? "release" a bunch of pics that purposely confuse and let fanboys down out of context. then amaze them with the actual movie later.

I always wondered what summer blockbuster movies would look like without all the special effects added later. I mean c’mon, does anyone think Chris Evans pre super soldier was that skinny for real???? Or may be the muscles were the special effects? Or...or...there were no special effects as some of the tw*ts on here appear to think and what we saw on screen is actually what everything really looked like. You can actually imagine if a pre super soldier Chris Evans photo had been leaked

You can actually imagine if a pre super soldier Chris Evans photo had been leaked during filming...showing his muscles (assuming they weren't special effects ;o) idiots on here would be going on about how Steve Rogers doesn't look frail at all and that this movie would suck. As for far too many "leaks"...is it not possible that these are deliberately being leaked...either to dampen rabid like expectations...or (and more likely)...to blow you away when you see this on the big screen and Bane is supersized and Catwoman is actually showing the other 90th of what her look is supposed to look like?

It's Schumacher's Bane all over again. And to anyone who thinks different, go look at a comic book and see how Bane is suppose to look like. At least make him look halfway similar to his comicbook counter part.

I disagree somewhat- Nolan's films make for great brand spankin' new spectacle but have very little re-watchability value and lots of stylistic holes as time goes on. Still hilarious.

I have faith. Right...? So far, the only pic i've actually been a kid in a candy store for is the new 'batmobile' thing. Bane looks..good, but honestly I don't know what to make of it until I see footage. And catwoman....ugh. How did Schumacher gain access to this script!?!?

I don't know boys, is a third film really that hard to produce?

Nolan did such a great job with Begins and Dark Knight, I can't see him dropping the ball now. Regardless of how these recent videos and pictures look, I think the finished product will not disappoint. Just my opinion.

not properly pumped

Is it me, or does Tom Hardy not look all that muscular in these shots. In the preview for Warrior,he looks super jacked! I'm hoping this is not what Bane will look like in the final product. It sems as if every picture that comes out is a letdown to our expectations. Are they too high? I don't think so. Keep the faith in Nolan, and see what happens.

Not looking good

Tom Hardy has gotten himself super jacked for a few roles now and in this his muscles seem kinda soft and deflated...I know Bane gets pumpd up with his serum shit so maybe this is pre 'roided out' Bane.. But yeah...I'm shocked at how unintimidating and milquetoast he's looking so far.

It was actually a jab at the uproar over the Batwing pics from last week. I don't feel that photos of characters and props are necessarily spoilery. My idea of a "spoiler" is something that gives away a major development in the story, aside from the principal story of the film, and I don't really understand why people think photos of actors in costume spoil much.

Just Walk Away...

There has been too much violence. Too much pain. But I have an honorable compromise. Just walk away. Give me your pump, the oil, the gasoline, and the whole compound, and I'll spare your lives. Just walk away and we'll give you a safe passageway in the wastelands. Just walk away and there will be an end to the horror.

I was there that day and in these photos, Bane was actually announcing the winning number of a Chrysler 300; he also was telling the crowd how much he loved Pittsburgh. The couple in the photo with him were the winners of the 300. This was done after the day's filming was complete.

Tom Hardy to grow 6 inches and put on 150 lbs? I think it will work well as long as he has the right personality.

But I liked him better in the teaser without the gear on. Here he doesn't look strong enough and that mask looks like it was left over from a Mortal Kombat Halloween costume.

Apparently the haters haven’t seen begins or dark knight. Lets recap.
Scarecrow – guy with a sack on his head.
Ra’s – liam nessan – that’s it.
Joker – guy with smeared white makeup – no falling in the acid with white skin.
Two face – half a burned face – ok so this was somewhat accurate.
Catwoman – anne Hathaway in leather. No ears etc.
Bane – bald guy in a scorpion/subzero mask.

So everyone hates bane and catwoman, yet are ok with scarecrow and joker? Nolan doesn’t want

Batman is fantasy but nope, everyone needs realism in their lives. Well you have the realistic catwoman and bane. Also, has it been confirmed that the venom will actually make him bigger? Or just stronger? Or is it even in the movie?

I'm sure that they just hate that ridiculous head piece. as for scarecrow and joker, that was still acceptable because scarecrow is a shitty character and joker never got superpowers from his bout with a vat of chemicals, hence being alot closer to their original concept. I dont know who hates Hathaway's costume, i just think that if bats could get stupid pointy ears then she could too.

This is most likely just Hardy goofing on set because his tattooes aren't covered up, and he's not wearing his coat. In the teaser his tats must've been painted over because he didn't have them in the last shot.

there has been this much leakage from a major production? There has been more bootleg behind the scenes looks at this movie than any I can recall, and it hasn't even wrapped yet. Also, those tats are Bane's and not Hardy's? In one of the pics he has a Notre Dame Fighting Irish man.

I love how people are hating on this bane because of his size. Sure, he was massive in the comics, but we have no idea what Nolan is doing with his story in this movie. I'm sure he'll make it all work within the world like he did with the previous films. All this complaining reminds me of the Ledger casting and make up...

I think this is Bane early in the film. He looked alot bigger in the promo pic and the flashes in the teaser. His costume also looks a little baggy if you ask me, and he has under-padding on his shoulders. I was hoping Hardy would be natural, he's a muscular guy himself, but there might be a hint of CG in the final cut?

I feel like this is some sort of alternate universe where the Batman series comes full circle and basically we find ourselves right where George Clooney left off. Where's Robin?

Bane looks cool...as for Catwoman??? They better do some changes on her costume or something. I mean the cycle that she rides is cool (although i never seen Catwoman ride anything before but that's a different story) but the costume doesn't even look like "Catwoman". It looks well....terrible.

That mask

gives me serious Mortal Kombat flashbacks. Also, I'm going to guess that this is not pre-juiced Bane; Hardy's not going to throw on 50 lbs and a few feet mid-production. I imagine Nolan is going to shoot him slightly inventively and otherwise ... yeah: smaller Bane.

Bane looks like an extra from Road Warrior or Thunderdome. What's he doin'? Proclaiming himself the ayatollah of rock n rolla?

I dig them letting Hardy show his tattoos for Bane... I think that's pretty cool.

Who is the crazy looking biker dude. I don't think he looks menacing, just weird.

i'm trying to just trust nolan, but i sure hope he gets bigger, otherwise why make bane one of the villains at all? it's not like batman doesn't have plenty of other enemies to choose from

My friend was there for this...this was Hardy in half costume goofing around with people and just being a generally cool guy....there is no Bane personality present in these photos...this was just Hardy being a normal chill guy, but he still had his costume on.
