The Dark Knight Rises (2012): Empire Magazine Batman vs. Bane Covers Revealed

Body

Empire Magazine held a contest where they let the readers decide the cover of the next issue, which will feature Christopher Nolan and official images from The Dark Knight Rises.

As we see from the reveals below, Bane was the victor!

This is the second "official" image (here's the first) to show Tom Hardy as Bane, with Cosmic Book News revealing Bane's costume description - first!

Regarding the two covers, while I did vote for Batman -- as I wasn't sure what he was holding, I can now say the Bane cover looks the better!
