Dark Knight Rises Bane Costume on Newsfeed - Nerds, I hope you are not around that girl you like because what I’m about to show you is going to make you crap your pants. Just released is a photo of actor Tom Hardy playing the character ‘Bane’ in the new Batman film by Christopher Nolan. In this sequel to the blockbuster Dark Knight, Bane is a criminal who is physically enhanced to become a killing machine. Hardy clearly started crazy workouts because he looks like the human version of a pit bull and sacrificed any visible sign of a neck. I use a Shake-Weight, so were pretty close.
