So Blade has already had his own t.v series and movie trilogy. I never saw the show but i didn't hear many good things but the movies they were....unique. Blade 1: pretty groundbreaking for Marvel one of their first comics 2 film AND the protagonist was black, the movie wasn't too shabby. Blade 2: (My personal fave) Guilermo Del'Torro shows how great of a director he is but the plot is a bit more simple, a gory action flick. The action was awesome and i like the cast, especially Ron Perlman, Luke Gross and other blood pack guys. Blade: Trinity: THIS MOVIE HAD SO MUCH POTENTIAL! Part of the potential: hunted by humans and considered a top threat; this was handled very poorly and became a weak/useless after thought of what could have driven the movie. Vamps getting desperate and get Dracula; awesome concept but again failed to present and the tone/feeling just lacked the darkness and the direction/cinematography were lacking WORST OF ALL, THEY RAPED DRACULA: i don't know why they made Dracula the way they did but c'mon, still a "unique" concept that sucked. I could go on but i won't. Blade was done fairly well throughout his trilogy, a thick dark tone is evident, his lone wolf attitude and his shame of yearning for blood. Wesley Snipes is amazing as Blade and his martial arts prowess shines which help create great action/fighting scenes. David S. Goyer is a great writer (he co-wrote The Dark Knight) and wrote all 3 movies, no idea why the 3rd one blew.
The Jade Giant, Green Goliath or whatever you want to call him is a powder keg of badassnetissity.
1.A man constantly on the run from the government and himself? Bruce Banner/Hulk is one of the most powerful characters and heroic in Marvel U but he fears himself and all he/Hulk is capable of.
2. You won't like him when hes angry. The hulk and Bruce are a complicated equation, hulk is Bruce but Bruce is not the hulk. Nearly all occasions Hulk is his own person that waits for his opportunity to show up. Bruce can't get angry, to excited or get his pulse pounding at risk of turning into his green alter ego.
3. So many Hulks so little time. The most common hulk we have seen is the classic naturally childish and "peaceful" (until messed with) Hulk. We have seen the terror known as savage hulk the barbaric and nigh unstoppable powerhouse but we have seen professor hulk, average minded hulk, the loving hulk and one of his most dangerous incarnations, the war monger, clever tactician the Green Scar. We have seen green, gray blue and red hulks each with their own personality.
How is he not drawing in the big bucks in the box office, he does have 2 movies, live action show and his own cartoon under his belt. This brawling complicated character should be drawing in huge crowds but why he doesn't is a surprise to me. Sure has had 2 movies but neither have fully displayed how great hulk is. The 2nd movie finally had him talk a little bit (not enough in my opinion). we saw the struggle Bruce has with being hulk and his fear of what hulk can do and his desire to rid himself of hulk and his attempt to harness the hulk for heroic means. It was great seeing hi fight Abomination, say Hulk Smash and i loved the movie but i want to see more of the hulks personality well hopefully we will in the Avengers spin off if he is in it and the possible third hulk movie
So Bane is a genius strong man that can deduce the location of the Batcave and his most recent portrayal in Secret Six is great, he ha been given so much more depth, more personality and his eccentricities (like his moral code stuff, protecting kids, respect for Batman, protection of Scandal etc.) are great additions. Bane ha become a really interesting character he is not always the bad guy but always the good guy but usually in the middle it seems but where he thinks he is is the mystery. So he had a MUY TERRIBLE appearance in the so bad its "good" film Batman & Robin. Sadly, he was reduced to a simple buff mute henchman suped up by Venom but without he was scrawny and sickly looking...lame basically. True back then he was not as a strong character with as much depth as he has now but still pretty lame portrayal especially since even without Venom he is still physically superior and he is a flippin' genius. It seems doubtful he will be in any upcoming Batman movies, especially Chis Nolans "realistic portrayals." Even though in Nolans Batman universe is exceptionally awesome, a juiced up, genius enemy can occur in my opinion.
-------------------BANE IN A NEW BAT MOVIE COULD GO DOWN LIKE THIS------------------>
Necessary Details for his movie appearance:
--Venom steroid (either just as steroid or crazy steroid that gives super strength etc.)
--Even without Venom he is strong and smart
O.K either deal with his origin or not...it still has not been entirely cleared up anyway...but it could still be the same: imprisoned very young to pay for dads crime, there he is a self taught genius & cold blooded killer with his stuffed bear concealing a knife. While in prison he hones his body to nigh perfection along with his mind. (this is where it kind of changes) He uses his mental and physical strength to influence his fellow inmates into slowly overpowering the prison that will lead to a revolt and a mass riot/escape. A mole within Banes inner circle reveals the plan to the warden, or some higher up in the prison, who has been trying to avoid government contractors from using "his" inmates for test because he feels their possible deaths as an escape but eventually provides them with his favorite "pet." Due to the tip off the revolt is quelled with violence and the capture of Bane who becomes the new example of punishment. Bane is beaten repeatedly and then put on display for other inmates along with his mutilated inner circle for the week before his testing begins. Bane is taken to the prison infirmary after being beaten for a week but instead of treating his wounds he is bound to an examining table. While bound he endures days of painful tests with no anesthesia and his screams are heard throughout the prison. While not being tortured he develops his unique meditation which causes him to feel no pain and stay calm but as his tests finish he is approved for the first Venom exposure. He has the recognizable tubes installed and his pack that contains the Venom steroid is instead a small pack on his waist that he injects and courses through the small tubes on his body. The doctors, guards and officials watch as the steroid is pumped into Bane and to their surprise he survives and Venom gives him great strength and numbs his pain. (it depends how realistic the portrayal is it can be super human or just really strong along with the Venoms healing potential and increased resilience all depending on the intended realism but i'm sticking with the Nolan practically reality version.) He fakes obedience but eventually fights his way out where he rips his tubes out and now relies on an injection site and the formula beaten out of a scientist. He goes on the run and since he was imprisoned somewhere in South America/Mexico area he takes a boat to the Panama Canal where he begins his journey North after having the crew tend to his wounds and kills them because of his Venom rage and one recognized him from an article. While traveling through he occasionally uses his Venom to fight/murder/break small gangs and becomes a somewhat vigilante and one exploit has him save a Luchador who had lost but gives Bane his mask because he is a "hero." Up until this point we have yet to see his whole face since he was a child. His journey is fueled by a story he had read when he was younger about Gotham and its underworld of crime he thought he would fit into somehow but really wanted to learn more about Batman. He thinks its funny he is considered a hero and continues on to America where he plans on going to Gotham. This very complicated but can be summed up or not even part of the movie.
----------A very simplified take could be the same prison experience with or without the testing but he is found by a drug lord who has Bane use his Venom and intellect to further his goals and provides him with the mask to intimidate (the drug lord could be responsible for the venom instead). The drug lord sees him as a son but is killed by criminals he follows to Gotham where he plans on revenge. While seeking revenge he teams with either another villain or becomes part of the gang world and basically starts breaking backs with his Venom rage/strength. He can either come to conflict with Batman because his activities, believe Batman responsible for the drug lords death, admire Bats and wants to defeat him, selling small amounts of Venom causing roided gangsters or something.
