Bane Co-Creator Chuck Dixon Says Christopher Nolan Got The Character Right
Chuck Dixon: "Well, I know more from the interviews with Christopher Nolan than I do from the little I've seen of the movie. Nolan has read and appreciated the comics featuring Bane and clearly intends to make him what he was created to be: Batman's intellectual and physical equal. My biggest fear was that he would be portrayed as a musclebound thug rather than a musclebound criminal genius. It also helps that actor with Tom Hardy's talent will be playing him."
