1st. OHH NOO GOD Dammit... Ha, just kidding nailbiter THis is cool and bane actually looks bigger standing on the top of those stairs when he is walking through the moves to him self. and all those picture snapping is crazy when bats is walking down the steps. Is bales bat cowl how the nose covered ? he always has his mouth open and seems to breath through his mouth alot in the fight scenes, but it is hard to tell. That would drive me crazy if my nose was covered while I was doing phyisical scenes. Cool Vid

...while some people are bashing te making of this film, these two actors are actually having alot of fun beating the crap out of each other. and tom hardy is the man!...
Spidey91 - 11/7/2011, 8:41 PM
Hardy: "and then I break your back,got it?"
Bale: "got it"

BatSlam - 11/7/2011, 8:44 PM
Yeah, Bale and Hardy seem to be really buddy buddy. I wonder if bale has impressed Nolan much, he seems to really like to reuse the same actors in his films.

Hardy " Wait Wait Wait ... Break Back??? Oh Shit , me and Bale thought you said Broke Back. We have been practicing in the trailer all morning"
R888 - 11/7/2011, 8:46 PM
Hardy as bane BADASS

I like the fact that they having fun on the sets

BatSlam - 11/7/2011, 8:53 PM
they should have padded that shirt that bane wears, make it look bulkier, or atleast not so baggy, the baggyness takes away from any buffness that hardy has going on.
miguelus - 11/7/2011, 8:59 PM
@batslam why don't they just make him shirtless the whole time, if that's what you're suggesting, lol...
DioFoRio - 11/7/2011, 9:05 PM
yo Aintitcoolnews has a good 1080p behind the scene video of TDKR it's got some cool stuff. And it's got idiots using flash cameras during filming
Macksimus - 11/7/2011, 9:08 PM
uhhhhh...that's not Hardy. That's his stunt double.

Howlett - 11/7/2011, 9:19 PM
Banes retainers are the best.
BatSlam - 11/7/2011, 9:29 PM
i am pretty sure those pics are hardy, they just have some cosmetics on his head and neck
BatSlam - 11/7/2011, 9:57 PM
god i would love to just drive down the e-way on the bat pod just once, and see everyones face. I wish its engines actually had that continual turbine exeleration sound that it does in the movie instead of just a normal engine, but its kind of impossible, just awesome.

I would also love to drive down the e-way in a black tumbler but if i did i would go to jail because the 1st asshole that was on the road i would run them the [frick] over. and then back up over them .... then hit the jets and run them over again.
musicsuperhero1 - 11/7/2011, 10:02 PM
prob some of my favorite pics so far. i love the behind the scenes stuff...with actors prepping and even cuttin' up between takes. very fun.
TinyBirdcage - 11/7/2011, 10:56 PM
Batman really has the best comic book movie suit so far. Out of all the recent movies he has the best. Not better than my DC Universe online costume though.
BLITzSTREAK - 11/8/2011, 1:45 AM
I wont even read these Humans comments.... I know this movie WILL BLOW US AWaY
Boss2 - 11/8/2011, 4:32 AM
God damn all this nolan fans here, accept that Bane looks not "cool" he looks, like he is on his way to Mordor with his best Friend Frodo to destroy a mighty ring!
TheDetectiveComicRises - 11/8/2011, 5:00 AM
Cool Batsuit!
marvel72 - 11/8/2011, 5:53 AM
i want to see a more comic book style batsuit.
marvel72 - 11/8/2011, 6:08 AM
@ brazilianbatman

the comicbook costume is the best look also the animated shows are the perfect adaptions of batman.

so your point being is....
rbfn04 - 11/8/2011, 8:32 AM
@brazilianbatman wolvie's yellow suit can't be used as a reason for not having bat's suit in the movie.

You're going with an extreme to prove that something way subdued can't be on screen? really?
Fantine - 11/8/2011, 9:23 AM
dahamma - 11/8/2011, 10:00 AM
shoot....i would love to see wolverines yellow/blue suit on the big screen lol
DoctorSnide - 11/8/2011, 10:19 AM
That's def the same scene they shot in Pittsburgh just the beginning portion. I bet anyone it is. I hope we get some more of Batman gliding in the air jumping off roofs or out of plane/into planes, etc.

TDKR Summary_ Batman gets beat up, Bane takes over Gotham, Bruce takes time to heal, retrain, and regain his confidence again, comes back, outsmarts banes and wins. They rebuild the Bat Signal. He's the hero Gotham doesn't deserve, but the one they need.
PapaEmeritus - 11/8/2011, 10:31 AM
I'm not sure about a comic book style batsuit, but for sure the Arkham City batsuit would be perfect!
PapaEmeritus - 11/8/2011, 10:34 AM
Although the armour fits well in Nolan style.
BlackRobin98 - 11/8/2011, 11:13 AM
I def agree that Bane's suit is too 'baggy' and he does not look bulky enough. I was always holding out hope that some how SOME how he would look bigger on film but unless they have some really realistic upgrade plans in post production I do NOT see that as happening!! Do you guys remember the teaser trailer!! Bane look huge (or atleast 'the right/decent size' as he - very Bane/Knightfall like - LUMBERED toward Bats to engage in the 'break-him' fight (if not breaking him atleast give him a sorely humiliating defeat, I mean I don't think ANY one - whether you've indulged in every spoiler or NOT - thinks that Bats comes out on top in that fight, its obvious, to any one with a passing idea of waht this film is going to be that there will be - like most "knightfall-esq" interpretations - two fights one where Bane comes out on top and the 2nd where Bats after training or getting better - prolly in this movie I'm guessin the first fight Bats was just out of practice and down after the events of TDK for so long think; Gordon; ",..and then you were gone" but yeah as Bane lumbers 2ward Batman he looks like he means business and Batman is backing up looking helpless basically barely holding up a fighting stance in futility! ANYway the camera angle or whatever made him look a lot bigger and more threatening and i was HOPING that would continue. But the fight on the streets of Gotham/nyc (so with all the comparisons of Gotham to NY, Goth being NYC on steroids and crack, we finally get a Goth that films @leasat in part in NYC) but that fight, I mean bats may as well be fighting any ordinary League of Shadows thug/goond!! I mean seriously. And I" a hug fan, I love the previous films and they are my fave movies! I have the greatest hope for this film not only being BETTER than the Dark Knight (tho I think the legend of Ledger - hey thats great word play lol - but I think the legend of Ledger will keep 'Rises from ever acheiving the best outta the trilogy status. I mean its a double whammie, not just his iconic performance but HOW he embodied the Joker and had the advantage of doing that to Batmans greatest villain - I mean who knows Bane outside of Batman fandom?? Average joe movie goers even know and were expecting the Ridder (a J.Depp Riddler more than anythign else. I literally remember haing sex with my G/f and it was actually ANNOUNCED on the radio as LEGIT news back in 09 that Depp as actually CAST as the Ridder so at least at ONE point it was a rumor that became 'official' some how. SO yeah I think no matter how great the movie is or could be you just can't beat The legend of Ledger. MAYBE this film could be considered better among Bat/CBM fans but never with average joe movie goers. Ppl UNDER estimate how many Ledger/'impressed with &wanting to see a great Joker performance as they recognized the character from growing up' average joe movie goers that that film brought in. I remember on opening night at midnight you could virtually PICK out - while standing in line - which fans were Bat/CBM fans &which were there to see Ledger @his best &in his final performance/curous average joe movie goer and of course you had the G/fs there with they fan boy boyfriends who were dragged along either with a passin interest Or a promise from they bf that if she saw this one tonight over the week'nd he would see Mama Mia with her ya know? lol Sorry so long as usual. SO what do you guys think about Banes size and the fight(s) so far? are you concerned? Do you think its weak?
Greengo - 11/8/2011, 12:46 PM
@blackrobin: thanks for clarifying
aRandomSinisterClone - 11/8/2011, 12:46 PM
dont know if anyone else is going to vote today, but i always write in Harvel Dent for any judges positions, n bruce wayne for anything else.
BatSlam - 11/8/2011, 1:41 PM
@Greengo, thats right, and don't forget it because he is not a virgin, he made sure to clarify that with us, just so we all know. But who listens to the news while getting it on? I can't get a boner with out the theme to 60 minutes coming on!!!!
superbatspiderman - 11/8/2011, 2:15 PM
I think that they will use camera effects in post production to make Bane look bigger because we really can't have a Bane who is shorter than Batman. That just will not do.
Boss2 - 11/8/2011, 3:23 PM
@Strange1 and @HipstersAREdouches for Nolan Cocksuckers like you two, there should be a new sign at "Public Square" the name would be "Caution Nolan Cocksuckers" and the symbol would be a little yellow smiley, which sucks a cock.

Guys like you would even say "WOW THAT LOOKS SO COOL" if Bane been played by Verne Troyer, get a life you little Nolan cocksucking faggots.
BlackRobin98 - 11/9/2011, 2:04 AM
@Greengo: just doing my job. I know my comments turn out long but hey it takes all kinds to make a world. How boring what the world and even this forum be if everyone was the same. I just happen to be the big mouth kid but I have equal right to be here as every one else.

@Marvelslam72 Don't worry Marv, I'll answer your question withOUT being a smart tail like the other guy. "I wanna see a batsuit that looks more like the comicbook one" (btw I hope you mean DC52 b/c those 'tighty blue-ies' briefs over tights have got to GO, their like the one curse the golden/silver age gave us. Lucky Marvel always got the cool stuff, I don't remember any of your guys having to wear their 'pants inside out' showing they man-panties lol. BUT you wanat a more comic book style suit. I got good news. You will get your wish! B/c after the Nolan trilogy the next Director WILL indeed go str8 from the pages of comicB/graphic.N style. MEANING we have seen extreme Gothic/Gotham; the city is otherwordly, timeless and in a world we can't imagine but enjoy while we visit it in pure escapism ('89) We have seen the whole fantasy world/Burton style world where anything is possible and super natural ('Returns) and we have seen EXTREME neon super city, minatures OVER dose where the villain actors think that Jack's Joker and Jim Carey's 'The Mask' is the ONLY way to do a Bat baddie and all villains (male or female) look like they got their garb from a 'Villain uniform outlet store' like nurses and hospital staff get there Dickies and scrubs from a work uniform store (Schmuck-man's Forever/B&R) and of course starting in '05 with Nolan/Goyer we got the 'realistic'/grounded in a powerful city that could be Detroit/NYC/LA or yes even Chi-town on steroids both economically/size and scope (like my comments lol) and of course corruption&crime where we get a Batman that is basically a vigilante highly trained in a form of ninjitsu that has evolved over he years from one-on-one to one-on-MANY and from the battle field to urban warefare who is simply fighting crime in an advanced SWAT style tactical crime fighting 'full body walking utility belt' I mean think about it, take away the theatric 'animal motif' you could call him "SWAT Man" (and I think Catwoman is shaping up to be similar. They simply use 'creature motifs' b/c criminals are a 'cowardly and superstitious lot' in FACT I fully expect Catwoman to not be self named, the media/cops will prolly 'attatch the name to her' - much like the ydo in Marvel films, like Iron Man &Hulk with Abomination. THAT is why I suspect she does not have 'cat ears' pursay or a cat cowl. Personally I think that would look more ridic than a man dressed as a bat at least in Nolan's world. And btw I think The Catsuit looks bettter for Catwoman than the Nolan batsuit looks for Batman. ANY way yeah the next set of films will be based on a str8 from the pages of comic.B/Grapic Novels. ANd the suit will prolly be 'cloth' with Kevlar-ish pads/plates in the chest and maybe shoulder areas. They have options. Just look at the City of Scars suit. I think that suit is awesome and it proves that an actors natural bulk can show THRU a batsuit. Now just imagine THAT suit with Warner's budget behind it? THAT is how a comic book Bat suit would translate to film ladies and gentleman.You would not even have to touch the cowl. BUT again THAT is how Robin will be able to FINALLY WORK in the next set of films. T hey will be no origin story (except for Robin whther he's in the first film or the sequal(s) of course) they own't be bound&restricted by 'keepin it real(istic)' and they can do more bizarre villains like Scarface, maybe Croc, Clayface ect, but I would say start with Joker or Hush. And you guys will FINALLY get the Roman Sionis no doubt ;-)
BlackRobin98 - 11/9/2011, 2:35 AM
@Batslam; some days you just CAN'T get rid of a bomb(!!!) huh? lol let me ask you? I trust NOlan too (film wise its ; in Nolan we trust) BUT having said that, do you have ANY concerns about Bane? I LOVE Nolan, and the lesser credited but completely deserving GOYER, I mean think about it, he put the heart and soul in the story and was responsible for what we got in the 'BEGIN'ing (lol) Nolan freely admits that he did not even KNOW bout Batman in the comics, he was no comic book expert and Goyer was actually very busy at the time but he told him that he HAD to do it b/c it was so important even tho Goyer had already given him his ideas/input for free (yes I watched the special features lol) but do you ahve ANY concerns about bane? I mean here s the thing. EVERY one loves to quote that we doubted Nolan in Begins, and he delivered, we (*not ME tho) dobuted and were outraged with Nolan for the last go around b/c of the Ledger casting and the non 'perma-white' Joker and as haters put it; "we dont want our Joker looking like he got into Moms make up case" BUT the fact of the matter is those villains were still reconizable! Think about it. Begins; "BOTH" Ras'es LOOKED like Ras, you could tell he was that character. Wantabe was no 'wanna be' lol he the classic more 'comicbook' recognizable Ras look, whereas Liam had that grace, charm, deep exuding of wisdome and intellect as well as endless charisma of Ras. When he spoke you could close your eyes and SEE Ras (thats Y I loved him in the original animated series, that was my fave Ras performance, certainly voice acting wise, it was brilliant. BUt PUT Ken and Liam together and you GET a definitive Ras al Ghul!! Scarecrow! Ok he did not have the red hair but he would not have looked half as menencing and I did not even think about that until my brother pointed it out. If he naturally had auburn or red hair, that woulda been cool but 4him to dye it, I think that would have looked cheap and less threatening. The mask was PERFECT!! In fact I have always said I think it looks even better and MORE intimidating in his DK cameo! He did not have the matching rags get up, instad of a suit, he had on a 'suit' lol BUT he WAS Scarecrow. Carmine Falcone was 95% spot on from TLH and who cares anyway. (but for the record the only thing he was missing was the mustache, he was not tall and slender and lacked that mid-Easter European/old world gentleman gangster grace and he didn't command a room as the Carmine of the comics seems to do, but again who cares, most Bat fans dont' even know who he is. LASTLY the Joker. Say what you want, the man had the Joker staples/and musts; purple suit, white face/make up, green hair, 'squeaky-like clown voice and of course his signature psychotic cackle and I loved how he controlled it and shortened it to keep it as far from Nicholson comparisons as possible, some how I ALways knew he would do that; not be constantly laughing, very often for no apparent reason. SOOOO with ALL that said (sorr yso long as usual) BANE. can you honestly say with a STRAIGHT face that if you had no idea who the cast villains were & this was a month after TDK's dvd release, Ur shown a teaser screen test shot of Tom Hardy's Bane, WOULD you know who he is and who he's playing. Hell you may not even know who the hell the ACTOR is let alone who the villain is! ALSO, he is not big enough! I said this in my ot her comment. IN the teaser the way they had him lumbering toward a near giving up in the fight Batman, seemingly in the Batcave, he looked HUGE & @the least taller and a size or 2 larger. I mean I think that is the best teaser villain reveal of all time. That less than 4secs of screen time has given more goose bumps than RL Stine in his prime! He looked threatening and like BANE. But NOW; all these shots we are seen and pics, he just looks and even fights like an ordinary League of shawdows thug. I mean I want(ed) to give the benefit of the doubt TOO! I figured that maybe he htye'd do someting in post produc and or he would translate larger and more thraatening on film/in the scenes much like that teaser. WRong. And I mean he even looks small in that Trench/pea coat thing. If he looks small in that, just think of when he takes it off. YES I trust in Nolan but I have serious doubts bout Bane. It just seems like instead of a hulk brute we're getting more of an agile martial artist; think Kyo dai kin (night of the ninja/day of the samurai; episodes from B.A.S) I guess its just a diff take.

@EVERY ONE else, WHAT are you guys thougths about Bane. (btw you think my commz are too long will jus scroll down from now on and I'll surmize it to a single point/question) ARe you guys disappinted? I mean even in 'trusting' Nolan this is kinda pushing it. I mean his image and what we know makes Catwoman look like the greatest CB character translation to film EVER done! Even better than how Spidey looked in the suit in his movies b/c lets face it super hero costume wise it goes like this frtom greatest to least Spiderman (I give an A+) Superman (Returns included) B+ (too early to judge M.O.S translation and lastly Batman; 89 entry level A, Returns C- Forever B+ (Robin B-) B&R D (Robin entry level C) I swear, take away the pot belly, green flesh, fake veins and suit along with the toy-ettic venom tubes and I think Bane looked better in B&R, MINUS the suit and his 'roid pot belly, but doohde was COCKED! So what do you guys think about Bane and the suit? I was SOO hopin for a new suit! Oh I almost forgot my grads on the Nolan suits (drum roll!! Begins; entry level A and the new one in TDK and TDR uhhgggg C+ and thats generous. what do you guys think? bane and the bat suits??
Boss2 - 11/9/2011, 4:39 AM
Aww how cute, look how this Nolan cocksucking groupies getting upset, about what I'm saying, hahaha did it hurt so much?

Keep cool little wankers, go pray to Nolan and everything will be fine, biatches.
Neek2086 - 11/9/2011, 7:47 AM
I Really wish people would stop BITCHING about the size of Bane.. TDKR has a 250 million dolla budget. Bane will be huge, Nolan's not gonna show us set pics of how bane will really look.. he is not dumb.. We've only seen the same set pics since they first started showing them. They are just shooting from different angles, we haven't seen anything until the first official trailer!!!
TheDetectiveComicRises - 11/9/2011, 8:56 AM
I luv these fight scenes it sort of makes me think of Bruce Lee and Han when they finally meet up against each other in the rioting on the island in Enter the Dragon, that is what I think of when I see Batman and Bane finally meet up. I look so forward to The Dark Knight Rises!
Garmanbozia - 11/9/2011, 4:30 PM
The Dark Knight Rises will OWN!

I believe that the reason why haters are hating so much this film is because they know deep inside, by the end of the day when all chips are in play, that The Dark Knight Rises is the best movie out of all the other ones. So they are taking advantage of the occasionally crappy looking, inconclusive set footage that is released to further trash-talk and to draw out their conclusions.

Seriously, don't judge a film based on its set footage. I earlier saw set footage of Inception, and I must say it did not look very sharp. But we all know how great that film turned out to be!
