THE DARK KNIGHT RISES - Bane Costume Revealed

Click the images to see them enlarged

"The Dark Knight Rises" has moved back to Pittsburgh and resumed filming, and that's where JustJared.com managed to take some pictures of Tom Hardy in full-gear as Bane, one of Batman's most dreaded villains, as well as Batman's new Tumbler, which is basically the old one with military camouflage. In the pictures, Bane is standing on top of the Tumbler, which has sparked a great deal of speculation on the Internet about what this means in terms of plot. As usual, I will refrain from any such speculations, but I will say that Bane looks like a cyborg from some kind of post-apocalyptic scenario.

It's really too soon to say if he looks ridiculous, or not, because we'll have to see him in action before passing judgement, but I'm sure Hardy is capable of crafting a menacing character, so the costume really is a secondary thing here. There's also a video of the crew allowing a bride and groom to take a closer look at the Tumbler, which is pretty cool.
