First image revealed for the Dark Knight Rises

The official website was launched yesterday for Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film, the Dark Knight Rises. What was supposed to be a slow release of the first official image turned out to be far too easy for Bat-fan’s to decipher. On the front page were clues and some chanting of “the fire rises” which was quickly decoded to reveal a picture of Bane, one of Batman’s enemies in the new film.

You can see the image for yourself below, but Bane (played by Bronson and Inception star Tom Hardy) looks awesome. In the comics Bane is ridiculously beefed up, however Nolan clearly wants to retain his realism. Bane still looks like Arnie on steroids, but he still looks ‘real’ and not too cartoonish. Apparently Nolan plans to use the IMAX choice of filming to full effect, especially with Bane. Its a brilliant choice of first picture, and one that should get the interest growing (as if it needed any help)

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
