I wonder how many of these spy photos would leak if these movie sets let their security pack the kind of assault weapons that Bane’s goons have got. You’d figure that “Joe Getty Images” would be less inclined to shoot some snappies of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES if there was a possibility of him getting shot back at.

Batman is so sporting in a fight.

A lot of us figured that this new Bat-movie was going to be setting more action during the daytime since sunlight factored most heavily into the imagery of the teaser trailer. That choice may be a boon creatively, but it may have just busted on-set secrecy wide open since everybody and their mother seemingly showed up to record a battle between Batman, Bane and a whole mess of their respective allies recently.

== TEASER ==

You can see more of the incriminating material at SHH but I want to pre-emptively shoot any naysaying about the look of the costumes down before you maniacs hit the talkback. You see all those people standing around Batman? The ones who aren’t in costume? They’re there to help this all look good for the cameras it’s all being staged for, not for the dudes with their flipcams across the street. Just keep that in mind.

Speculating about this movie when it's so far away is a little silly, but I’ll say that it does look like they’re definitely playing Bane up to be even more of “anti-Batman” with all his gear. Also, Marion Cotillard being all up in this action raises an eyebrow, and I do wonder if that’s supposed to be the “day time action” variant of the Batmboile or perhaps a duplicate pirated by these n’er do wells, instead.

For the record, this leak never would’ve happened if the project stayed in Chicago.

Is it me, or does Bane look a little small in these pics.

This is not what it looks like!  As said in the article, were not seeing it through the cameras their set up for, based on previous Nolan films  I'm sure it will look amazing.

Break his back!!! break his back!!! O wait... I don't think that bane could even pick batman up... ummmmm..... CGI break his back!!! CGI break his back!!! 
Welcome to the future where we cant even hire a jacked guy to play the role of a jacked guy we just edit it in later :(

I guess Bane will not be using the venom to gain mass. I don't even see any of the plugs on him. I know the movie is going to be great, but I am very disappointing in casting of Bane. Tom Hardy is too small to play the role. As a DC fan this is all we got no Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman or Justice League film for 2012.

I hate that comic book fans just complain about everything. These are spy photos so when you click something that says spy photos it should be obvious that this is not the way it was meant to be seen. Which would be hire a no talent "jacked guy" when they have available an amazing actor who has a good relationship with the director. This sounds like the same b****assness I heard when Heath Ledger was announced as Joker and I am sure you all enjoyed that performance. So shut up up enjoy the movie when it comes. 
In Nolan I trust!

Im pretty pumped this is filmed in my home city, Pittsburgh!  Lets not bash it too bash b4 it comes out ;)

I still think The Avengers will be far better than anything Nolan is doing with this movie.

#12 Posted by sesquipedalophobe (4907 posts) - - Show Bio

I like the part where Batman looks into Bane's beautiful eyes.

#13 Edited by Fnz (42 posts) - - Show Bio

I like the  Bane's "military" outfit but he should be MUCH bigger... He's my favourite Bat-villain so I have high expectations :)
Nevertheless, I'm waiting for the movie, because all of this is a spy-foootage and it' will look much better on the screen, for sure.

#14 Posted by batmanboy11 (244 posts) - - Show Bio

Before anyone goes crazy with speculation on the batmobile, let's remember that Wayne Enterprises built them, and "Miranda Tate" is supposed to be high up there, so...
#15 Posted by Burnstar1230 (216 posts) - - Show Bio

Looking at Bane, it reminds me of a Black Scorpion villain....not a good thing. I'm not expecting him to use Venom and getting huge, but no amount of good  CGI would make him look bigger than Bale without looking silly.

@cdeoleo:  O I have full faith in Nolan and I know the movie will be awesome and i'm sure Hardy will make an awesome Bane. I'm just saying that Bane is huge in the comics and not very big in those pictures. Gerard Butler worked out for 8 hours a day for 6 months straight to get ready for 300 and ready he was.. He was a skinny that naturally got big because he was playing a strong guy...

"For the record, this leak never would’ve happened if the project stayed in Chicago." true, but I seem to be getting a recurring theme of 'crumbling cityscapes' for this film - I think industrial Pittsburgh is the perfect place to pull something like that off.

nothing a few good angles won't fix.   good cinematography has been making little people look intimidating for a long time now.   haven't you ever seen people argue about Schwarzenegger's height?   online, he's listed as being six-foot and above, but if you ever catch any anecdotes, they usually end with people being surprised about how short he is.   personally, I'll wait until a trailer with some more Bane exposure to make any real judgment.

Brokeback Gotham, perhaps?
#18 Edited by Ruudi9 (17 posts) - - Show Bio

It could well be that Bane gets his ass kicked the first time he meets Bats, then gets all venom'd up and giant for the replay. Also, not in any shots do we see that it is Tom Hardy, it could be a stunt guy doing the 'smaller' role or some such. 
@Sky_Jokiel: Have you seen him Bronson era? He put on some meat for that role.

C'mon Pittsburgh! Up the ante on the security, we've seen too much. 
Jeez, give that town one thing to brag about and there's loose lips and camera phones all around. They're only filming in the parts that may sorta could kinda look like Chicago or New York anyways....

#20 Posted by Bestostero (5782 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm still not convinced on the overall look of Bane.

#21 Posted by darth bul (133 posts) - - Show Bio

it looks good

#22 Posted by King Quisling (2073 posts) - - Show Bio
I think Hardy as Bane looks awesome. The spoiler-ish leaked photos just get me more excited for DKR. People worried about Bale as Batman when Begins was announced. They worried about Ledger when TDK was announced. It's only natural they would worry about Hardy as Bane. I have confidence that Nolan knows what he's doing with both Hardy & Hathaway. I can't wait.... Next summer seems too far away. :P
Side Note: I've said it before, will say it again, I'm sure Bane breaks Gordon's back.

#26 Posted by goldenkey (3033 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't mind the mask.  The rest of the outfit looks stupid.  Gotta see the movie to see how this going to work, but if the fight coreography is anything like Dark Knight was, then it's going to be gay.  Batman Begins fight  scenes worked so much better because the camera was so close, you had to guess what was happening a bit, but in Dark Knight, they had Batman moving so sloooooooow.  It was the only thing about the film I did not like.  No way in hell is Batman that slow.  He would get his ass handed to him.

I wish you comic vine folks wouldn't even post this or at least not an image on the newspage at all. I want to stay as cold from dark knight set photos and other things as much as possible. I would have been livid if I had seen Two-Face before I finally saw TDK.

I felt the same way while watching the Dark Knight.   So much of it felt bizarrely like deja-vu, especially the street where Batman and Joker play chicken using the bike and semi-truck.

He's not Bane, he's the Puck of Alpha Flight.

I think that the pics look great.  I swear, Marion Cotillard gives off such a Talia vibe in those pics though. But who knows for certain? And those ones that look like paratroops with Marion...who ar those? I can guess they can only be two things, one that horrid Gestapo like SWAT team that was part of GCPD's HQ during the Batman: Year One storyline...or League of Assassins (Shadows) henchmen.  One way or another, awesome pics!

It looks like Marion Cotillard and they've said she's not playing Talia. She's billed as Miranda Tate.

THE TUMBLER RETURNS! And the Bat-Pod looks much more modified than the last incarnation.

I was hoping they would upgrade the Bat Tumbler to the Batmobile that we all know and love.

I don't like how bane looks in this movie. Bane should be a small slim dude who transforms to a big dude on steroids
#45 Posted by RichIII (14 posts) - - Show Bio

Lets not forget that the Tumbler Batmobile from the pictures is actually the 1st Prototype that Lucius Fox let Bruce test in Batman Begins when he visits Wayne Enterprises for the first time since his "return from the dead", and Bane looks alright considering his first movie debut:

I like the way Bane is looking. Next year can't come soon enough

#47 Posted by ImperiousRix (1144 posts) - - Show Bio

I wish Bane looked more imposing.  I think without Hardy's massive arms exposed, he doesn't look so good... :/

#48 Posted by shawn87 (2797 posts) - - Show Bio

Awesome pictures. I know Bane is getting a lot of criticism and I can understand why. I have faith that Nolan knows what he's doing. I know nothing about making movies and yes Bane looks small but like someone else said, we're not looking at it through the actual cameras. Perhaps they're doing something to Bane we're not seeing that will show up in the final footage. Regardless I'm ecstatic about this movie

I really tried not to click on this, but I couldn't resist.  Love Bale in the last pic. "LOL. Elbow in the face. I'm Batman."
