UPDATE!!! Until confirmed otherwise, take the following with grain of salt
This morning, I received an e-mail from a source that wishes to remain anonymous, he claimed to have seen the upcoming 6-minute prologue of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES’ and he’s also got details on BANE, played in the film by Tom Hardy.
This unnamed source said he guaranteed this validity and so if WB kindly asks me to remove this post, I’ll be more than happy to oblige.
Check out the descriptions below and let me know what you think? Credible or not?…
Nolan has significantly rewrote the story of Bane from the comics. He is raised by Ra’s al Ghul and his up bringing mirrors that of Bruce Wayne. It’s a mirror of Bruce, except it’s darker and twisted. Bane is trained to be an assassin for the League of Shadows. He kills political figures that are deemed unfit by the LOS. So he is a bit of a Che Guevara/ Jason Bourne type character. A revolutionary and an assassin. He comes to Gotham to start a revolution by revealing the cover up dealing with Harvey Dent and killing the Mayor, among other key political figures.
It is one of the assassinations ordered by Ra’s al Ghul. A mind blowing action sequence set aboard the Hercules plane, involving some innovative camera work ala Inception hallway fight scene. Bane and his mercenaries hijack a military plane transporting a dictator of a country which is in unrest (think Saddam Hussein type figure). He successfully kills the leader, but makes some mistakes along the way and is unable to safely land the plane. Because of the resulting injuries from the accident, he has to undergo complicated surgeries and that is how he winds up with that scar down his neck and the need for the mask to numb the pain.
