    Bane is a very smart and cunning villain in the books, not just a muscle-bound thug. He's one of the few who deduced Bat's true identity, IIRC.

    Good thinking.
    That would fit with Nolan's style with these films of showing how fact becomes mythos.

    As i'm reading comments, Bane also ran the underworld for sometime and even pulled the strings of Joker without them knowing it.

    I believe Nolan will make a better version than this

    Two-Face had also been done before, though only once. And like Two-Face, Bane has been done badly, so Nolan can only improve on the previous depiction.

    Did you see her as Agent 99 in Get Smart? She looked awesome in the black leather jumpsuit and had all the right moves of a skilled fighter.

    Isn't Tom Hardy the one who blamed ST Nemesis for getting him addicted to drugs and alcohol? :guffaw:

    Guess the wanker has plenty of experience for the role.

    One of the few?? At least half the Rogue's gallery and a dozen assorted side characters have figured out Batman's identity over the years.

    Re: Anne Hathaway is Selina Kyle - The Dark Knight Rises

    Fucking Bane? Really? That's more than a little weird. Nolan finds a way to make this stuff work though. And Tom Hardy is good news too, performances in certain franchise killing movies notwithstanding.

    But Hathaway as Catwoman is just 100% awesome.

    I love it. Bane needs a serious interpretation and Nolan is the man to do it! I'm psyched that we're also seeing Catwoman! Anne Hathaway is a gorgeous actor, along with being incredibly talented to boot!

    Yep. Bane was originally conceived to be, more than any other villain, Batman's equal in intelligence and ability; Bane's weakness was that he had come to rely on strength enhancing drugs as his edge.

    Frankly, Bane "re-imagined" as a "bad mirror" of Batman sounds pretty interesting.

    No kidding. :cool:

    She's perfect for the role, looks-wise and acting.

    You're right. I stand corrected...

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I think of Bane as a formidable villain. He's known as the guy who broke and defeated Batman, so topping that, or just creating a story that's equally compelling won't be easy. It would be an interesting twist if Nolan's Bane also broke Batman and the trilogy ends with Bruce being forced to hand over the mantle to someone else like he did in Knightfall. His stint as Batman wasn't intended to be permanent, so in a way, he'd be getting his wish.

    As for Anne Hathaway, she doesn't strike me as an ideal choice, no one does actually, but I can get used to her as Selina Kyle...

    Frankly I'm surprised all of Gotham hasn't figured it out by now. lol

    Re: Anne Hathaway is Selina Kyle - The Dark Knight Rises

    So, having a 3.5hr meeting this morning. Breaking for lunch. Then a 2hr meeting puts one really behind on this today. Page 4 already!!

    Count me as one who says, "What?! Bane....Chris you got me on that one, didn't see it coming!!" I can only hope that Bane will have a more literal translation of the version from the comics. Anything really will be a vast improvement over the random junkie stooge from B&R.

    Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, MEOW!!! I to thought of her from Get Smart in that black outfit she wore there.

    So this means Talia is out then? I no longer want to assume the other female role is going to be Vicki Vale. I mean 99.5% of the internet was sold on Hugo Strange. With Catwoman you could have the love interst for Bruce who starts bad and turns semi-good at the end to defeat a yet to be cast Talia and Bane. Bane has teamed up with Ras & Talia before afterall. I could totally buy Bane being used as an instrument of The Demons Hand to go after Gotham and it's hero.
