Is This Our First Look at Bane in The Dark Knight Rises?

Could this early Bane concept art tell us what Bane will look like in The Dark Knight Rises?

Scoops Opinion



I found the following concept art months ago and have not posted it up until now because it would have been pure speculation that Bane would even appear in the The Dark Knight Rises. Now that Tom Hardy has been confirmed to be portraying Bane in the film, it becomes a disticnt possibility that this could be the concept art Christopher Nolan has chosen to bring the character to life on film.

These images were posted on CONCEPTART.org back in Oct. by Humza Khan and he had this to say concerning the images over the course of three separate posts.

These are some concepts that I have done to get onto the Christopher Nolan Dark Knight sequel / Batman 3 team.

I posted these to promote myself because I am still trying to get on to the project. These are posted here to help get as much exposure as possible and to help get hired.

My design of Bane is closest to the comics, especially the Knightfall story arc.

This version of the character was born and grew up in prison to pay for his father's crime, committed his first murder at age 8, and was a vicious fighter who was a pretty big guy before he was injected with venom.

In the comics, instead of attacking Batman head on, he realizes Batman too smart for that. So instead, he attacks Arkham Asylum and releases the inmates. This forces Batman to spend 3 months hunting them all down until he becomes exhausted and sleep deprived. Only then does Bane break into Wayne more and breaks Batman's back, paralyzing him instead of killing him for the sole fact that he wants him to live in shame and defeat.

In my character design, Bane's biggest threat is his tactical machiavellian mind over his sheer size and enhanced strength. The design of suit is suppose is drawn from the comics but with some adjustments taken from swat and military armor to have it designed for close quarter urban combat.



Hawksblueyes: What do you think. Is this what Bane will look like in The Dark Knight Rises? Would you be happy if this is how he appeared on film?
