Vote Batman or Bane in Empire's for new Dark Knight Rises cover reveal

11.18.2011

You know, it's sort of a cool concept what Empire is doing here. You can go to this link and decide which image you want revealed for their next cover. The more votes you cast, the more the cover is revealed. Not a bad concept.

Unfortunately, the chosen subjects aren't the best in my opinion. If this was the absolute first time we'd seen characters from THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, it would be pretty cool, and I would be sitting here all day voting. But we've already seen a ton of Bane pictures in full costume on set, and uh Batman? I think we know what he looks like by the third movie.

Between the two, how is this even a contest? Rather, the other choice should probably be Catwoman. Even though it would likely just be Anne Hathaway in pointy goggles, at least it would be a new character.

I was hoping these would be fully revealed by the end of my shift, but Bane has 22,000 votes and you can't even see past his nipples yet. Check back next month for the full image (or hopefully in a few hours if they speed this process along).

Extra Tidbit: I just don't like the Bane costume. When we saw the Joker finally, we were at least like "oh shit!" despite all the Ledger doubts. Not so here.

Everything about this film so far has either been a disappointment or totally lame (Bane costume).

The best thing about the film so far has been the teaser sky poster.

I'm not gonna doubt Nolan. I wasn't sure about TDK and we all know how that turned out. DOn't be surprised if what you think you know from what you've seen is completely wrong. Don't doubt Nolan!

We've seen both of these characters in so many preview pics already, the cover isn't much of a reveal, but the headline is "The Dark Knight Rises", so it would seem odd not to show The Dark Knight on the cover. If they do choose Bane, they should consider modifying the headline.

And why do we know what they look like? Because certain people spend 95% of their time putting up spoiler pics in their articles...

Hathaway is a good actress and I believe she can pull it off but the costume and its reception probably have a lot to do with why it's not a choice of cover.

Meh, kinda cool, I guess... But like Paul said, we all know what both of them look like already. I'd still vote for Bane, if I cared to vote at all, which I don't.

Hasn't this been done before?
And yeah Bane doesn't look particularly good. In fact nothing so far has looked good except the Gotham Crumbles teaser poster.

I'm not sure I totally agree...yet. The Bane we saw at the very end of the teaser trailer was in no way how we see Bane so far in pics. I still think the best is yet to come and THAT's whats being kept under tight wraps.

Lol...well I'm going positive in saying that I think Bane looks great, photos don't say shit about how he'll look in the movie. Time will tell.

A reveal? Really? It's not like we haven't all already seen the costumes. I grant that those were spy pics, etc., but I doubt that the covers will convince me this movie (and it's fucking terrible title) will actually be good.

I agree with "americanmoviefan".
While the scale of the movie is impressive, the costume designs of Bane and Catwoman and the casting of Anne Hathaway are odd indeed.
I want Anne to do well but I still don't buy her as Catwoman. And the look of the character is not helping matters.
I'm still really excited for this movie but I don't feel the same level of excitement that I did for The Dark Knight.

Re: Extra Tidbit

I agree. Also, given how massive Bane is in the comics and how large Tom Hardy has been for movies like Warrior, he's looked so relatively tiny on-set. That football stadium scene he looked extremely lean, not at all Bane-ish. I dunno. While the scale of this film has me excited, the stars and their character/costume designs have me feeling so-so at best.
