More Hi-Res Images From <i>The Dark Knight Rises</i>

More photos from Empire's extensive coverage of The Dark Knight Rises have emerged and this time offer up higher quality versions of Bane's mask and costume in their entirety, Batman on the Batpod and Christopher Nolan directing the action.

Empire Magazine's piece on The Dark Knight Rises not only revealed that the movie will take place 8 years after the previous instalment, but also several very interesting comments from director Christopher Nolan and stars Christian Bale and Tom Hardy. The issue is on sale now and well worth picking up (more details can be found HERE) but until then, here are three more hi-res scans from their article as well as the covers themselves courtesy of Empire Online and Twitter's @RIMBreaks.


Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman
Michael Caine as Alfred
Gary Oldman as Commissioner Jim Gordon
Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox
Tom Hardy as Bane
Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman
Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake
Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate
Josh Pence as Ra's Al Ghul

RELEASE DATE: July 20th, 2012

All these photos and none of Catwoman?
How ridiculous, you suck Empire.

Dynamo: I think he looks really badass, I'm not sure I could take him seriously if he looked more traditional.

My GOD! Is there anything RIMBreaks doesn't find? LOL

No, I think he looks menacing.

Despite all the negative things being said, IT WILL be the most popular Halloween costume next year.

@marvel72 cape always looks odd before post production. I think it's the fabric.
Sweeny0407 - 11/27/2011, 9:07 AM
always something to complain about that last pic of bane looks badass got all the faith in tom hardy
tqb - 11/27/2011, 9:09 AM

TheNeedler: ".... a reject from Mad Max"

LOL! No shit! This Bane would only intimidate the elderly. Bloody shame.

Dear RamonSuarez.

Directors relying on CGI is ruining 21st century movies.

novaprime - 11/27/2011, 9:18 AM
Banes verry trasshhhhh. Hardys a skinny shiittttt
CanadaMan - 11/27/2011, 9:19 AM
Great to see Nolan's chin in Hi-res... :p
Boss2 - 11/27/2011, 9:20 AM
God all this Nolanites stfu! If Nolan made Bane in this movie huge, you would all say, WOOOOW GREAT NOLAN IS GENIUS! Now hes small and looks shitty and everyone argue that it looks real, so it's great. That's bulls***, I don't go to the cinema to see real Criminals, I got to the cinema to get entertained and it's a fu***** comic based movie!
Boss2 - 11/27/2011, 9:22 AM
And for the record, I'm pumping iron myself and my arms are way bigger then the arms of Tom Hardy and still I would never say I got the body of Bane, but this Clown above definitely don't got.
Gnyah123 - 11/27/2011, 9:23 AM
hardy is goin to be the definition of bane wen we see this movie he can act n hes puffed up nolan wudnt pick him for no reason..
and i LIKE the BANE picture idk wat yall see wrong wit it cuz nothing is bad he looks badass n pretty scary
Boss2 - 11/27/2011, 9:25 AM
Where the hell does he look badass? He looks in picture 2 like a goddamn clown!
JustinMSalvato - 11/27/2011, 9:26 AM
I'd eff Bane up.

However, if the Bane from the comic book showed up, I'd start praying for a miracle.

Hey pacman, that what these sites are for; to post our opinions.

However, I'd break Bane's ribs. Not an opinion. Fact :)
Boss2 - 11/27/2011, 9:26 AM
@pacman the only people here who are pathetic fools, are Nolan cocksuckers like yourself, so go wank yourself on a picture of Nolan you fag!
marvel72 - 11/27/2011, 9:27 AM
@ rbfn04

you're probably right.
rbfn04 - 11/27/2011, 9:29 AM
@marvel72 might flow better and whatnot. what bugs me is, if i'm not mistaken, the movie cape is round at the end, no serrated like the comics...
marvel72 - 11/27/2011, 9:29 AM
@ boss2

XD hahahahaha
dahamma - 11/27/2011, 9:31 AM
bane doesn't look menacing at all.
PaulRom - 11/27/2011, 9:37 AM
Bane looks awesome, could be bigger but otherwise spot on.
jazzman - 11/27/2011, 9:37 AM
some people here makes me laugh so much crying about high and msucle lol.

i do agree with CherryBomb we need pics of Catwoman
MrReese - 11/27/2011, 9:39 AM
@dahamma this guy didnt either ;)

Boss2 - 11/27/2011, 9:39 AM
Picture 2 looks like a nerd with a cheap Stargate costume who is on his way to the next Comic Convention. Ahh and of course his wrist is injured from the whole World of Warcraft gaming, so he is wearing his best leather wrist band to protect it.
DCfan89 - 11/27/2011, 9:40 AM
see... this is the difference between nolan/dc fans.... and ..... others. nolan would rather have a quality actor than just a big non talent having actor.... he's a quality director who knows what he's doing. i mean say what you want... i remember the same kind of talk before TDK came out... you can't deny the numbers. I'm sure this movie will break records just like its predecessor. so to all of you who wait around for these articles to bash without cause.... your hating is in vain,, it won't change anything.
PaulRom - 11/27/2011, 9:41 AM
I think after the mixed reaction to the first picture of Catwoman, WB is afraid to release another one. LOL
andrewbrooks - 11/27/2011, 9:42 AM
@MrReese thats a candid set photo! when we saw the trailer and the official photos we loved the joker. these pictures of bane are as official as can be. not menacing to me. i have my doubts.
Boss2 - 11/27/2011, 9:44 AM
Are you done with wanking on Nolans picture, pacman?
aRandomSinisterClone - 11/27/2011, 9:45 AM
How great was tom hardy in warrior. Cold n dead inside. The way he talked to his dad n bro... I was gettin goosebumps for dark knight rises. He's gonna kill it.
ATOMbomb - 11/27/2011, 9:46 AM
I'm so thrilled that Nolan used Bane in this film, I was obsessed with the Knightfall story. At first, when I saw pics of him I was really disappointing but I've completely warmed up too the idea. I'm really glad Nolan didn't CGI the hell out of the character and that he got someone that can act and not some huge wrestler that can not act a all! We all know Nolan's universe is based in "reality" which I love and of course too have someone like Bane in that universe you have too have a character that is believable. When the film comes out, I truly believe we will all be blown away and I also believe Tom Hardy will do an amazing job. Thank you! Chris Nolan for putting Bane in this film!
