Bane will Rise! For a short while, at least, in director Christopher Nolan's epic trilogy finale The Dark Knight Rises. Total Film has a world exclusive photo of Tom Hardy as Bane in honor of this month's issue, which takes viewers into the dark and deadly world of global uprising. We also have a look at some pages from the magazine, which give a fresh glimpse at Christian Bale's Batman, Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, and Morgan Freeman looking like a dapper chap in his 1%er wardrobe. Check them out!
Tom Hardy has this to say about wearing the soon-to-be iconic Bane mask for the duration of the shoot.
"It's not as bad as you might think. You just put it on. Work out where you drool goes. That's it. Mask work is good fun. This one wasn't painful; there was the stunt mask and there was the up-close on for the sexy glam shots."
He also chatted about his eating habits in keeping Bane a mass of bulk.
"[I was] Eating entire villages of chickens. When I started I was about 160-something pounds. When I was done I was 190. You lift weights. You eat. You lift some more weights. You don't run anywhere because if you do cardio, you drop weight. So it's really good for heart attacks!"
