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.

Yeah, sorry buddy. You didn't stand a chance.

Can Superhero Movies Bring Back the "Too" Sequel?

Looking back on the 2012 summer movie season so far, it’s the superhero titles that are most notable, both in terms of box office and critical attention. And the big three, ‘The Avengers,’ ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ are all quite interesting in terms of their context within their respective franchises.
One is a new kind of sequel that intersects and interconnects four other series, and which will spawn a similarly extended sequel of its own; another is a mostly redundant reboot; and the last is the third installment in a contained trilogy that potentially could hatch a spin-off or prequel or some other kind of follow up that isn’t a direct continuation of the primary hero.
