Well if you haven’t seen the new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises then you are truly missing out. It is epic! The trailer teaser which was released a couple of months ago only gave so much to go on but this new trailer, initially shown in IMAX cinemas before the showing of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, gives us a good look at what’s in store for the Bat.
So the character that really stole the show in this trailer was of course Tom Hardy’s Bane. With his popped collar and mask he truly is a force to be reckoned with. So what I here you ask? Well Bane has been dubbed as one of Batman’s most dangerous villain, surpassing the likes of the Joker and Ra’s Al Ghul. Bane is a product of testing using a drug called “Venom”, and is supremely strong and smart. But Bane is famous for really one thing and one thing only- breaking Batman’s back. This may have been implied in one of the release posters with Bane walking away from a smashed up Batman mask. Who knows? Will Nolan bring end to the Bruce Wayne Batman saga? We also see some sort of prison riot, Arkham Asylum? There is some evidence for it being the famed prison. Before breaking Batman’s back he destroys the walls of Arkahm Asylum allowing all of Batman’s foes to escape. Batman is forced to recapture all these criminals, allowing Bane to plot Batman’s downfall, resulting in a battle between the two at Wayne Manor. One last thing on the giant, while watching the trailer I struggled to understand what on earth Bane said when he grumbled “When Gotham is ashes you have my permission to die”. Hopefully this won’t be a problem in the film, hopefully…
Holy Dark Knight details Batman- the gritty details of the Dark Knight Rises

The director of the upcoming Batman film, the Dark Knight Rises, spoke recently to film magazine Empire about what the movie is all about and also the man who broke the Bat – Bane. By the way SPOILERS AHEAD! Nolan, who directed both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, told the magazine that the Dark Knight Rises will be about finishing Batman and Bruce Wayne’s story, whether or not it will end with Bane snapping Batman’s back we shall have to wait and see. As for the setting, Nolan said that it will in fact be set 8 years after the events of the Dark Knight with an older Bruce in a bad state. Batman Beyond film anyone?
As for Bane, the drug pumped, intellectual lunatic that Batman will have to face will be played by Tom Hardy, who played Eames in Inception (another Nolan film) and said a lot to the magazine about Bane’s character :
He’s brutal. Brutal. He’s a big dude who’s incredibly clinical, in the fact that he has a result-based and oriented fighting style. It’s not about fighting. It’s about carnage. The style is heavy-handed, heavy-footed, it’s nasty. Anything from small-joint manipulation to crushing skulls, crushing rib cages, stamping on shins and knees and necks and collarbones and snapping heads off and tearing his fists through chests, ripping out spinal columns. He is a terrorist in mentality as well as brutal action.
Lovely stuff ain’t it? The film will be released 20th July 2012, but Nolan has confirmed there will be a prologue which according the Nolan will be the “basically the first six, seven minutes of the film” which will give all ”an introduction to Bane, and a taste of the rest of the film.” Look for it to be shown in select IMAX theatres on December 21st.

With The Dark Knight Rises having some nice sneak peeks as of late including Bane’s costume and video of Batman fighting Bane, many are wondering what an image of Anne Hathaway as Cat Woman will look like. Well Cat fans, the wait is over. Since the news of what actress will play this sexy role, fans wondered how Christopher Nolan would portray the villainess role. Will she be shot in the patent leather look as Michelle Pfeiffer did or the hot two piece outfit that Halle Berry sported? As the picture shows, it looks like it is a little of both.
Batman and Bane are BFF’s, Best Friends or Better Foes???

The Dark Knight has sure gotten a lot of fanfare as of late. With The Dark Knight Rises official trailer being recently released as well as the official villain of the film, Bane, showing off what he will look like in the film, Batman sure is getting people excited about his latest ventures. Batman’s latest excitement is caused of course by the latest film, The Dark Knight Rises, being released next summer as well as the latest video game, Batman: Arkham City, releasing October this year. With Bane and Catwoman being the villains in the film, in Arkham City, there is an entire army of big name villains to go up against the Caped Crusader. With that being said though, let’s focus on one villain, that being Bane. One project will put up the giant against Batman, but the other will put Bane actually helping Batman (yes you heard that right).
