Re: The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan)

Let the bitching over Catwoman's mask commence.

Spoiler:
I like its Julie Newmar-inspired look.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan)

I never understood the rationale behind putting female comic characters in high heels. Its rediculously impractical and in all the action scene they wear stunt boots anyway. Dumb dumb dumb.

Once again, it's been confirmed that her heels are lined with blades so they can be used as a weapon. Nolan doesn't have a habit of putting flashy shit on costumes just for the hell of it, everything has a practical application.

Bale's face looks so weird in the cowl sometimes.

Here's Bane all shredded. Looks like there will be several body types used in the film.

Compare that pic to the one where he was all back in his profile. That was more of a Bronson build. Here, he's lean. It's as plain as day.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan)

Screen presence has never been about how "big" you are in the frame. I still have coworkers who think Nolan's going to CG Bane into some hulking behemoth. It's about the framing, intensity, etc... and isn't part of Bane's appeal his smarts? He's just physically got the upper hand on Batman.

It's funny that in Goyer's draft of Batman Begins, he had a moment where Alfred had to stop Bruce from going to his birthday party because he forgot to take off the makeup from his eyes.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan)

Quote:
'The Dark Knight Rises' star Tom Hardy talks about playing Bane and inventing the villain's controversial voice: 'It's a risk.'


When Christopher Nolan asked Tom Hardy to play the villain in his third and final Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, due July 20, the director doted on one job requirement in particular: the budding star would have to wear a mask that looked like a leathery baboon mouth with metal casings for fangs – a sort of steampunk respirator as fashioned by Francis Bacon. “I think he worried it would be something I might not consider because wearing a mask might damage my career or something. He thought I’d be worried that the audience couldn’t see my beautiful face,” says Hardy, who also worked for Nolan in the filmmaker’s 2010 Oscar-nominated smash Inception. “Like I care. It’s Chris Nolan! I would wear a paper bag over my head for that man.”

To play Bane, a willfully evil and possibly unstoppable force of mind and might, the British actor wanted to develop a distinctive voice, one that evoked (albeit elliptically) the comic book character’s erudition and ethnic heritage (Bane hails from a fictional Caribbean country). Hardy sought a sound befitting a man steeped in malevolence and old soul wisdom and who could trace his roots to ancient Latin culture. “There were two doors we could walk through,” says Hardy. “We could play a very straightforward villain or we could go through this very quirky door, which is totally justified by the text but may seem very, very stupid.” Not surprisingly, Hardy decided to go for the second option. “It’s a risk, because we could be laughed at—or it could be very fresh and exciting,” he says. While some found his dialogue incomprehensible in the IMAX-exclusive sneak peek attached to Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol last December, the actor asks for patience. “The audience mustn’t be too concerned about the mumbly voice,” says Hardy. “As the film progresses, I think you’ll be able to tune to its setting.”

Bane’s motivation as a villain remains one of Rises’ best-kept secrets—although the trailers suggest his master plan requires the razing of Gotham and the death of Bruce Wayne. Does Bane represent a specific political or philosophical complaint? The answer is… maybe. “I think the politics of the film are going to be hotly debated one way or another, as they were in the last film,” says Nolan. Listening to Hardy compare Bane to the scarred, clown-faced villain who terrorized Gotham City in The Dark Knight, you almost get the feeling of a revolutionary usurper with tremendous resources. “The Joker didn’t care—he just wanted to see the world burn, and he was a master of chaos and destruction, unscrupulous and crazy. Bane is not that guy,” says Hardy. “There is a very meticulous and calculated way about Bane. There is a huge orchestration of organization to his ambition. He is also a physical threat to Batman. There is nothing vague about Bane. No jokes. He’s a very clean, clear villain.”

Re: The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan)

In every pic I see, Bane looks soooooooo underwhelming. I have no doubt that Nolan is crafting a great film, it's just that in my mind's eye, this is not Bane.
