Bane’s Mask in The Dark Knight Rises


Tom Hardy as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, Total Film exclusive

Batman faces Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. Total Film shares an exclusive new photo of Bane’s face close up. You can really see the detail of the villain’s mask. It reminds me of a Predator mask. It appears metal hands are opening Bane’s mouth. Tom Hardy told the magazine about the experience of wearing the facewear.

  “It’s not as bad as you might think. You just put it on. Work out where you drool goes. That’s it. Mask work is good fun. This one wasn’t painful; there was the stunt mask and there was the up-close on for the sexy glam shots.”

  When you look at Hardy’s expression you can tell Bane is seeing something disturbing…maybe the flying Batwing?
