Is Tom Hardy Practicing "Break The Bat" Move in This TDKR Behind The Scenes Photo?

Probably not. But, a new behind-the-scenes image has found its way online, featuring Tom Hardy as Bane doing the famous move, that many fans will recognize, on one of the crew members during filming of The Dark Knight Rises...

While the details about Christopher Nolan-directed film The Dark Knight Rises are kept under wraps, there were couple of rumors that during the film, we will see Bane doing his famous "Break The Bat" move, injuring Batman's back. Even though we are probably not going to find that out until the release of the film, a SHH user found this rather cool behind-the-scenes image, featuring Tom Hardy as Bane doing that brutal move on one of the crew members. Check it out below.

If I have to guess, I would say he did this for the fans or something like that. Still, pretty cool nonetheless. What do you think?

Starring Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard and Morgan Freeman, The Dark Knight Rises is set to hit theatres on July 20, 2012!

Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. The screenplay is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. The film is produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously teamed on “Batman Begins” and the record-breaking blockbuster “The Dark Knight.” The executive producers are Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull, with Jordan Goldberg serving as co-producer. The film is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane.

Wow, that's pretty cool...though I'm not sure if that's going to be in the movie. Not that it is the thing I'd want to see the most either, anyway!
Jolt17 - 12/2/2011, 2:30 AM
If it's in, his winning pose shouldn't be in too, lol.
Coloso - 12/2/2011, 2:32 AM
Bane, fear me!

dancingmonkey08 - 12/2/2011, 2:34 AM
Wow seriously dont piss Tom Hardy off, this is what happened to this guy when he gave Tom a cold cup of tea a few months ago

Tom spent months exhausting the crew member who wronged him until he was so exhausted that Bane fought him one on one and broke him. True story bro
dancingmonkey08 - 12/2/2011, 2:39 AM
and I thought it was bad when Christian Bale trashes a crew member's lights, Tom brings it to a whole new level when he punishes the crew

eviltattooedguy - 12/2/2011, 3:09 AM not so sure that's the move that he's tryin to preform.......
Vafrous - 12/2/2011, 3:13 AM
I haven't seen that position before...
marvel72 - 12/2/2011, 3:21 AM
wouldn't he just do the "back breaker"wrestling move,it would be easier & look better.
BillyBatson1000 - 12/2/2011, 3:24 AM
Bane actually started young, breaking the backs of truckers . . . worked his way up to the Bat. I'm talking sh*t, I know. But I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS MOVIE!!!!!!! Argh!!!!
Boss2 - 12/2/2011, 3:46 AM
That will look funny, when the small and thin Tom Hardy wants to break, the bigger and more muscular Christian Bale ahahahahaha!
Supes17 - 12/2/2011, 3:56 AM
He's just messing around.
But the pic means that he knows about Bane's character breaking Batman...hhmmmmm......
BREAK DA [frick]IN BAT!!!

mrbadexample - 12/2/2011, 4:14 AM

@Oveerfiend *facepalm*
Ha1frican - 12/2/2011, 4:23 AM
@Overfiend wow self facepalm
heisei24 - 12/2/2011, 4:24 AM
He's actually practising ''break the balls''
Natetrix79 - 12/2/2011, 4:30 AM
It's called "The Dark Knight Rises" for a reason! What else could possibly make Batman step away from crime fighting besides not being able to walk?
NeoBaggins - 12/2/2011, 4:56 AM
@Overfiend If were going to go for B-movie actor that cant act that Nolan would never cast; Vin Diesal is your Bane. The size, the presence, the look and the voice. Nolan could have directed him into looking like a real actor. The man was able to get a decent performance out of Michael J White, who at all times was threatening to [frick] up his lines. Always at the edge but just made it under annoying.
MrReese - 12/2/2011, 5:23 AM
..............n thats y Tom Hardy is awesome!!!
DeadpoolVSPunisher - 12/2/2011, 5:31 AM
Mark my words: Bane kills Wayne, JGL takes up the cape. Whether Wb every makes a JGL-Batman movie, I have no idea, but I honestly think this is how Nolan leaves the *this* franchise.
dahamma - 12/2/2011, 5:37 AM
atleast Tom H is doing something for the fans of the comic...unlike nolan cough cough
Greengo - 12/2/2011, 5:38 AM
Oh great... just what we need!





brewtownpsych - 12/2/2011, 5:39 AM
roofies? shouldn't it be "floor"ies?
BatSlam - 12/2/2011, 5:43 AM
Of course this isn't in the movie, come on guys. He is just doing a pose with somebody for a funny picture.
jmunny - 12/2/2011, 5:59 AM
Still has a thing or two to learn from Chuck Norris.
imnotwearinghockeypants - 12/2/2011, 6:00 AM
I'm guessing he does that to Gordon in this movie.
Fogs - 12/2/2011, 6:04 AM
He's just messing around.

Very cool, tho.
ComicBookGoth - 12/2/2011, 6:11 AM
"dammit, Hardy Broke another PA!"

NeoBaggins - 12/2/2011, 6:11 AM
He tried to elbow that dudes junk but he has armor; a fanny pack.
blee - 12/2/2011, 6:14 AM
I definitely posted this on the Scoops section, first... Just saying.
rsahadi - 12/2/2011, 6:21 AM
Hardy doesn't even come close to having the build of the comic book Bane. So Batman can take out hundreds of foes but we are suppose to believe that Hardy can break his back.
QuietStorm - 12/2/2011, 6:21 AM
Well played @Greengo, well played lol.
NeoBaggins - 12/2/2011, 6:26 AM
"Hardy doesn't even come close to having the build of the comic book Bane."

Um, what real life human being does?
MaddMonkk - 12/2/2011, 7:22 AM
The Avengers is going to destroy this movie. 3,2,1...
TheBurnSays - 12/2/2011, 7:28 AM
It's probably just the crew member that asked for a cool picture. I would have done the same thing.
Oh, and to those of you still complaining about the size of Bane, what you want does not exist! Get over it!
