Holy bulking muscles Batman! Here is the first released image of Bane from the upcoming film The Dark Knight Rises, due to be released Summer 2012. Tom Hardy plays the hulking villain in the next film and it looks as though he has done a great job of looking the part, which initially had me worried.
The last time we saw Bane’s presence on film was from the horrible movie that should not be named…ok Batman & Robin with George Clooney in the role of the caped crusader. Is it just me or does he like Hannibal Lecter in this shot? It sends chills down my spine.
