Bane's Mysterious Device In THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Revealed!

Bane's Mysterious Device In THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Revealed!

You can stop all the speculation as a new revealing image of Bane's mysterious device from The Dark Knight Rises has surfaced. Also, the film's official website has been updated with high quality version of previously-seen stills.

Since the very first set photos surfaced of this strange and mysterious device speculation has run rampant. There were many people that believed it was an earthquake machine, while others proposed it was nuclear bomb, and that is just a few of the ideas that were bandied about. Now we have the proof and Bane's device is a fusion reactor.

Fusion reactors have been getting a lot of press recently because they offer some major advantages over other power sources. They will use abundant sources of fuel, they will not leak radiation above normal background levels and they will produce less radioactive waste than current fission reactors.

Nobody has put the technology into practice yet, but working reactors aren't actually that far off. Fusion reactors are now in experimental stages at several laboratories in the United States and around the world.



The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th 2012 and stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate.

Fusion's a nuclear device?

I knew it wasn't an earthquake device. It sounded too out there for a Batman film.

DanteSparda - 6/28/2012, 12:18 PM
Mmmm I'm a bit disappointed, I was hoping it wasn't any kind of bomb for all the mystery surrounding it, also the more I see of Bane in this movie the more he reminds me of Ra's al Ghul ways, I really hope is not the case.

What is Selina doing in a men's prision? Epic gangbang plz.

This must be the cancelled "energy project" mentioned in the notes from
Bigred20 - 6/28/2012, 12:36 PM

DarthDan - 6/28/2012, 12:48 PM
Fusion balls!
TheDarkSouffleRises - 6/28/2012, 12:50 PM
A fusion reaction will kill Batman and Bane at the same time.

Spidey91 - 6/28/2012, 12:52 PM

LOL man epic pic!!

I need to see the dark knight saving gotham from that bomb like this:

RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 6/28/2012, 1:04 PM
So the timer on it. Does Bane intend to blow it up, and with it all of Gotham? I really hope that is not the case. I was kind of hoping for a plot that revolved around Bane taking over Gotham, but putting it in the hands of the citizens (the non wealthy). Bane will stick around but he is there more of an authoritative figure. Him and his men aggressively police the city which has been annexed from the US. However, I intend to have ulterior motives, and everything he does in Gotham is just a front for his bigger scheme.

Also how hard must it be for Gordon to wax poetically on Harvey Dent to the public? The dude was going to kill his son! Right in front of his family. How they are not scarred and in therapy is beyond me. I really hope we see a little angst when Gordon speaks of Harvey to Batman.

Awh this site is so good stoned .. Seriously all those pics .. Made

angus666 - 6/28/2012, 1:16 PM
Does he need Tridium to run it?
ManThing - 6/28/2012, 1:17 PM
lmao @ Helagood

looks like Selina goes to jail.. lol
PapaEmeritus - 6/28/2012, 1:18 PM
@Intruder, you'll find out in the theater... you should chill until it happens.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 6/28/2012, 1:20 PM
Hey look it's Jack Nicholson in cos play. Come on Intruder Jack phoned that role in worse than The Departed.
coderaven - 6/28/2012, 1:22 PM

Rumor mills is Miranda/Talia feeds the technology from Wayne enterprises, this of course is somewhat backed up by the new viral letters between Bruce and Lucius.

As far as eight years, it appears Bruce is letting himself go after.

If there is any real complaint people could have on TDKR it appears Bruce will be a feeling sorry for himself bitch at the beginning of the movie.
zachshivey - 6/28/2012, 1:23 PM
@starspangledbruce hahahahaha that's my favorite part of any batman movie....maybe dr pavel can reverse what the fusion reactor does and can make if into a bomb. I remember at the football stadium Bane rolled that thing out & threatened to use it. He didn't say how though
santoanderson - 6/28/2012, 1:23 PM
Is Batman holding a bow staff in that one pic?
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 6/28/2012, 1:24 PM
He completely phoned it in. He was the best thing in both movies because the other characters consisted of an dis interested Michael Keaton (who did have a great Batman voice), a hammy over the top Danny DeVito playing some sort of sewer monster, and Michelle Pfieffer. Who actually I thought gave the best performance of the two movies. I hated her Catwoman because it was so gimmicky and basically a goth cliche, but Michelle did an amazing job with what the script gave her.

Heard from a friend that Bane is gonna be in the new Batman flick
FilmsFan - 6/28/2012, 1:28 PM
It's cool!!

I mean BANE's ultimate goal is to destroy Gotham... Nuclear Bomb device is the thing!
Hopefully this NUCLEAR stuff is delt in a better way than Avenegers... Didn't want to start Avengers stuff here; cuz I liked Avenegers a lot ... Along with having several problems with it! But in the end that Nuke thing was just just too ridicules... Might work for some but no for me!!
Hopefully here it's not brought in 10 seconds & then oh Batman save th day... Same shit as done by IronMan... Don't do that!!!
blackscienceman - 6/28/2012, 1:29 PM
haha.. looks a bit like this
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 6/28/2012, 1:30 PM
Dude, come on Intruder. He was awful in that movie, he didn't even attempt a credible Boston accent. You must have seen the classics, One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, Easy Rider, Chinatown, Five Easy Pieces. Watch those movies again and tell me Jack didn't phone both movies in. Honestly the best actor in the Departed was hands down Mark Wahlberg.
DanteSparda - 6/28/2012, 1:34 PM


Now that's fücked up, if that rumor happens to be true then someone steals Batman a nuclear weapon from his own Wayne Enterprises without him knowing? That's not my Batman.

blackscienceman - 6/28/2012, 1:37 PM
if bane has the apple of eden.. were screwed
coderaven - 6/28/2012, 1:41 PM

Its looking like he is not Batman at all when this film starts.

This movie looks to be similar to Ironman two in the fact that the major protagonist spend a good portion of the film feeling sorry for themselves.
