The Dark Knight Rises (2012): New Promo Art Shows Jacked Bane


Were you worried that Tom Hardy wasn't "big" enough to play Bane in The Dark Knight Rises?!

Bane uses the drug "Venom" to enhance his size and strength in the comic books.

However, some fans just aren't sold on the idea of Hardy playing the opposite to Batman, as they deem him too small.

Well, a new promo image has surfaced which features Batman vs. Bane, with Bane looking pretty jacked!

Sadly (maybe for some?!), while it is just "art," it still looks pretty cool!

As to why Bane might look "small," here is my theory.

The image is from FilmCellsLtdt (Via CBM), who will be selling The Dark Knight Rises film cells soon.

What's a film cell?

From the FillCellsLtd site:

Our FilmCell presentations are double matted, and include 35mm clips/strips of film that are individually selected  from the movie.  They contain a mini movie poster or unit photography, and a descriptive plaque including:  item name/logo, licensing/trademark and limited/special edition details.  The presentation also includes a Trend Setters Ltd. official embossed/foil certificate of authenticity, and is mounted in a stunning frame.
