it gave us something we've never seen on film... The end of Batman, or at least Bruce as Batman.
As with so many aspects of the film, that was done far better by the original
Batman in The Mask of Zorro
Yeah, that was a pretty good Batman film.
Assuming that Talia/Miranda is the same age as her actor (37), assuming that young Talia was around 7 when she escaped frm the Pit, and assuming that Bane was at least 15 when he saved young Talia from death? That means that Talia's escape would have been about 30 years before the events of the film, and thus that would make Bane around 45 during his takeover of Gotham City.
Of course, Marion Cotillard could pass for someone in her early 30s, too, which would put Bane somewhere in his late 30s or early 40s.
Late 30s is a stretch, but I suppose it could work if you put Talia in her late 20s and Bane in his mid to late teens. I thought... hey, Bane could be really old, but then again, maybe he isn't. With the mask though, I could still believe that he's in his 50s or older if need be.
