With a big-budget film like 'The Dark Knight Rises,' there were many drafts of the script, costumes, concept art and the like that did not make the final cut. For one, we all know that one of Bane's original design was more akin to the comic book villain than the one Tom Hardy portrayed on the screen. For another, the promotional artwork went through a number of changes as well. Just take a look at these gun and ammunition-themed posters that Warner Bros. almost used to promote Christopher Nolan's final Batman film.
In Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Rises' Batman/Bruce Wayne faces his most dangerous and enigmatic foe yet: the muscular, masked Bane (Tom Hardy). There were a lot of questions left unanswered about his character, and it appears those answers were left on the cutting room floor.
Well, except for an answer to "what the hell does his voice sound like?" which is a question that's been eating away at our collective pop culture consciousness for weeks now.
There are many reasons to be scared of the 'Dark Knight Rises' version of Bane. He's big, strong, referred to as a ruthless killer, has lived in prison for the majority of his life and even Catwoman is scared of him. But the main reason we'd piddle in our pants if confronted by him, and no one seems to have picked up on this, is that he looks like a relative of the 'Predator' aliens.
