Someone on the set of The Dark Knight Rises snapped these photos, which give us our first real good look at Tom Hardy’s version of Bane. Obviously, he isn’t going to be wearing that trenchcoat (as least I hope not), but even so…he just looks kind of silly. at any rate, it’s certainly not an atrocity like Jeep Swenson’s ridiculous-looking Bane from Batman & Robin. Let’s hope Tom Hardy’s acting chops and Nolan’s lighting and cinematography can transform this somewhat goofy costume into a menacing nemesis for Batman. As a bonus, there’s a couple of videos of what appears to be a massive explosion and *SPOILERS* subsequent prison break.


About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
