TDKR:  New (low-Res) Image Of Tom Hardy As Bane; Nolan Reveals New Info On The Character

A new - if familiar looking - pic of Bane has popped up online. Plus, Christopher Nolan reveals a bit more about the character, including why he needs to wear the mask, and that he's the man who "physically breaks Batman"..

With new images and even the first tv spot popping up, it shouldn't be long before promotion for Christopher Nolan's Batman threequel hits full kilter. For now though, here's a new scanned image of Tom Hardy as grumpy ol Bane, doing that thumbs-hooked-in-armor thing he seems to enjoy so much. Also, as you can gather from the txt accompanying the image, Nolan reveals a few more tidbits about the character. He confirms that the mask her wears is not breathing apparatus, but a means for him to receive a constant supply of anesthetic to keep some terrible pain at bay. He also comments on not wanting to compete with the late Heath Ledger's Joker - ”We didn’t want to compete with Heath. We wanted more of a monster – Bane’s the man who physically breaks Batman. It’s an irresistible force versus an immovable object.”..
