Im a huge Tom Hardy Fan Huge fan and I think he was a GREAT choice for this role and I think he looks jacked and Im a huge Nolan fan (in Nolan we trust) but i have to admit for Bane he looks a little small but only because I see bane as bigger than a human could achieve I guess im looking for something beyond this and before the epic fail that was bane in the previous Batman film

Greatest CBM trilogy ever.

I'm curious to see what CGI miracles can postop do to make this Bane look threatening.

@TheSmytheFactor,

Well I'm not sure we'll get a proper Bane after this one. Only thing I'm thankful is that Nolan didn't pick the Penguin, Croc or Clayface. Should've done Riddler, or someone more in tune with his real world take.

Was Chris Evans that small for Cap.. America?? No He wasn't... I prefer Nolans Bane mask... better than lookin like a nacho libre mask..:)
Nexus6 - 8/14/2011, 1:40 PM
this whole thing looks like a pisstake!
Lert - 8/14/2011, 1:41 PM
i can imagin somehow that Nolan will have something up his sleeve to make bane a more menacing villan..
soaponapope - 8/14/2011, 1:41 PM
it looks like one of those events teams hold for season ticket holders and bane is the reluctant player MC'ing the event
NeoBaggins - 8/14/2011, 1:41 PM
lol he's taller than that couple.
marvel72 - 8/14/2011, 1:42 PM
sub zero reading the lottery numbers epic.
Greengo - 8/14/2011, 1:45 PM
Is he smiling in that first pic?
Greengo - 8/14/2011, 1:46 PM
@neo that's why they won
TayDee - 8/14/2011, 1:51 PM
e looks kinda horrible, i mean i'd rather him be shirtless or vestless than have that weird looking thing on.
RobinNumbah6 - 8/14/2011, 1:55 PM
its starting to grow on me...
soberchimera - 8/14/2011, 1:56 PM
He looks big enough to me. He wasn't really big in the comics either.

xizorkatarn - 8/14/2011, 2:00 PM
Hardy was so cool on set, when the 1st AD announced his arrival on set in costume, Hardy jumped around to face us with both hands waving in the rock on symbols. I don't know if I'll ever be able to erase the image of Bane telling me to rock on...

@soberchimera

"He wasn't really big in the comics either."

What are you talking about?! Even in that strip you posted he's HUGE! Hardy isn't big enough IMO, but all that can be fixed in post production :)
Bardock - 8/14/2011, 2:09 PM
is it me or does bane looks small compared to the cartoon and comics?
superbatspiderman - 8/14/2011, 2:09 PM
Hardy will be amazing as Bane he is just one of those great actors so I think he will knock this out of the park. Bane doesn't have top be 7 foot tall but he needs to be bigger and stronger than Batman.
Nexus6 - 8/14/2011, 2:09 PM
LOL!@Tea, outstanding sir, outstanding!;)
marvel72 - 8/14/2011, 2:11 PM
has hardy actually got any muscles.
speno94 - 8/14/2011, 2:12 PM
i like the mask because you cant really have the mask like in the comics because you wouldnt see tom hardys eyes and facial expressions and his overall performance and will just be another faceless goon like the HYDRA solidiers from cap. I also like the sort of padded military costume he is wearing because if he just wore the mask and a vest like the comics he will be a two dimensional character and a little predictable and cliche like other muscle bound characters in films thats why i like nolans redesign of bane

I guarentee Nolan will make Bane look bigger in post production (remember the end of the teaser trailer?) also, he won't be made too much bigger, as Nolan goes for more realistic approaches to his movies (which I love) so I'm betting Bane is going to have some really crazy attribute ex. Immune to pain, can't be stopped, etc.
RunDTC - 8/14/2011, 2:17 PM
are those tattoos really Hardy's or are they just for the film?
SigmaCenturion - 8/14/2011, 2:20 PM
haha that still looks horrible.
THABATMAN - 8/14/2011, 2:21 PM
I am still looking forward to this movie, but i gotta be honest and say that Hardy doesn't look intimidating as Bane lol oh well. This movie will still be awesome!

Bane has already started on the campaign trail he first visited the people of Pittsburgh.

I don't see anything wrong with Hardy's Bane he looks more lean and cut with camera trickery and a vicious enough fighting style there is no need for CGI which might end up looking bad and like a mistake. Bane's mental edge and fighting capabilities are more important then making Bane look like a professional wrestler. Sure he is that big in the comics but not enough actors are that big and more importantly good.
Bardock - 8/14/2011, 2:26 PM
at least its better than this haha http://www.chartmovieinfo.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/Bane_MOVIE-e1296286325714-250x150.jpg
speno94 - 8/14/2011, 2:27 PM
In any other comic book movie or a batman film directed by a different director bane would look like how he is in the comics because other comic book films are light hearted and dont really have depth or complexity, but because nolans batman films are so realistic, griity, psychological and have lots of depth and complexity compared to any other comic book film bane needs to be redesigned to be a complex and gritty character and not just a mindless muscle bound brute who walks about in a vest and a nacho libre mask throwing batman around like probably any other comic book film would do
RockNRollCC - 8/14/2011, 2:27 PM
@Tea ROFL!!!! If only Hardy did start singing that XD

I really do hope they keep Hardy's tattoos. Makes him look more violent
