On-Set "Dark Knight Rises" Photos Have Revealed Bane's Costume, And It's Going To Give You Nightmares

The “Dark Knight Rises” trailer has already leaked; now, photos from the film’s Pittsburgh set have revealed a glimpse of the trilogy’s newest villain.

Tom Hardy (“Inception”) stars in the film as Bane, the antihero who fells Batman in the graphic novels.

On the big screen, Hardy’s terrifying wardrobe seems to nod Hannibal Lecter.

Outside of Anne Hathaway‘s turn as Catwoman, Hardy’s contribution to the movie is one of the most anticipated.

Opposite Christian Bale, he fills the void left by the late Heath Ledger‘s Joker character — and fans of the films are particularly fascinated by director Christopher Nolan‘s bad guys.
