Bane in TDKR

Bane and how TDKR could have been better.

The Dark Knignt rises featured Bane. Bane in this movie Personality wise was spot on. He was meanacing, intelligent and a phisical beast. So i think his personality from panel to screen transfered over well. We got the prison break from knight fall, the sealed off gotham from no mans land, and got to see him break Batman's back. Pretty freakin sweet. His look


didnt really bother me all that much. I would say i really didnt care that much because this.



would look very out of place in the Nolan Batman universe. I know a lot of people who wished he was the giant monster man like in the comics but it just wouldn't work in Nolan's real world. So this lean fast bane in TDKR was okay with me even if he was at little short, he look way bigger than batman on screen. Escpecially at the end.

Now my problems with this movie was that it takes place 8 years after the Dark Knight. I know Nolan was trying to finish his trilogy but i felt it should have been like 6 months to a year. I cant accept that a 30 something, Bruce Wayne would just drop his crusade that he spent his entire twenties preparing. That was my biggest gripe with this film. Even two or three years would've been okay. but almost an entire decade. That was really out of character for Batman.

Anne Hathaway as Cat woman was great and was glad that they pulled it off with out being cheesy.

John blake was cool but wished that while batman was in the prison he would've found the batcave and fought bane as a sort of psuedo nightwing. The whole "Robin" line was cool but a face palm at the time



But why'd they have to kill bane. That was so lame. Then you find out he was a lapdog for Talia. I wouldve perfered a resurected Ras from the lazurus pit that wanted to use Bane as his succesor instead of Bruce. But that's just me.
All in all it was a great movie with only minor problems. Just wished we could've seen more of this universe. Think these films and the Sam Rami Spiderman trilogy are the best super hero trilogies. What did you guys and gals think about the TDKR and Banes look.

I never saw him as a lap dog. More of the General to a countries army.

His death never bothered me either, as Batman and Bane had fought twice already, so left me hungry for more, which is better than being over saturated.

People, especially us the fans, will always have our ideal version or what we want up on screen, sometimes they match sometimes they don't and that can affect our enjoyment.

Me I liked this version of Bane, and seeing as he isn't the best known villain in the mainstream media, it was good to see the whole breaking of the bat, which thought we'd never see.

I thought Bane looked fine, I wish they would have Blake become Nightwing, I was afraid when i heard Hathawaye was gonna be Catwoman but she ended up doing a real good job, good article though, though I must point out one thing, Sam Rami's Spider-Man series was not one of the best, that's only because of the third movie, the first two were awesome I think they should have introduced Eddie Brock early in the second movie to begin a rivalry with Parker and then have Venom at the very very end of SM2, and then had him through out the whole SM3, but I thought Venom looked terrible, but you are right Bane was an awesome villain not exactly true to the comics (like Venom) but still rocked ( unlike Topher Grace's Venom) and Nolan's Batman trilogy is not just one of the best superhero trilogy, it's one of the best of all time!!! Good article!!

The difference there is that those are two very different worlds. The MCU is far more like the comic book universe than the Darknight universe so I would like to see a more fantastic Captain America in a world where Hulks and Norse Gods are flying around. But in the Nolan world none of these things exist, if bane was a luchador wearing giant it wouldnt work. Thats why i have no problem with different interpetations in that universe. As long as they are done well, like Bane, unlike Talia.

The problem with bane in TDKR is as soon as its revealed that it was talia all along, he becomes nothing more than a glorified lackey for talia.

Since the main objective was to arse rape the character anyways:



Why put a muzzle on one of the most expressive faces in Hollywood? It would have been better if he was allowed to go mask-less [the mask served no purpose; no venom, etc], and use his regular voice. If you watch the movie 'Warrior' (2011), he was more Bane in that than in 'Rises'.



His performance [in the above] was a hundred times better than anything he did on 'Rises.'

@Youngman

Sting

The mask wasn't connected to anything, no tank, no wires, so I'll assume it was Bactine for his face; it sure didn't look like VENOM. That Muzzle must have cost him a great deal of pain, and the Bactine was to ease the pain.

@johnblake

What a hypocritical article this is. Bane's look doesn't bother you but Captain America's does?

"Thats why i have no problem with different interpetations in that universe"

The MCU is a different interpetation as well!!!

Kevin Durand for Bane in the reboot definitive Bane.



He's a pretty great actor and actually has an imposing stature (at 6' 6"). Give him some months in the gym to beef up, a more faithful Bane costume and you got it.

This pure comedy.......that voice. LMAO.....

IMO they should've had Bane die after Batman broke his mask in the last fight and than have Talia reveal herself in time for her to pay her respect to Bane for what he had done for her in the Pit, and maybe even use her line from the comics and tell Bane " goodbye my BELOVED ". I feel that would've been more serious and emotional a death for him instead of just getting blasted all of a sudden by the Batpod.

"*Sigh* A tube connects the back of his mask to his vest. It's clearly visible in most of his scenes. I'm starting to question if you even watched the movie."

You might wanna rewatch the movie yourself, there's no tube, especially when he's not wearing the vest in the beginning, or the underground scene when he has his shirt off.


jessepostal - 11/26/2012, 10:52 AM
@theyoungman, Idk what that is but its not attached to his vest, that is the only scene that there is something on his neck, they show multiple back shots of bane, including a closeup when he chokes Dagget, and there is nothing there, all you see is where his mask ends and than his neck

@theyoung, 2 more things

directly after the image you posted in the movie they show bane from behind, and whatever that is not there in the behind shot.

and say it was a tube for him to breathe, i wouldnt put my life in the hands of a tube thats as thin as a rubber band
jessepostal - 11/26/2012, 12:04 PM
haha what does it matter when there is no tube?? Let it go, you were wrong, life moves on

I loved Bane in this movie he was a complete badass! I wish Bane was the one who put Batman in retirement for a year or two, not Batman left because of the city hating him.

JokerFanHahaHA has a point. You can't say something is important then not important :/
