BANE

Tom Hardy as BANE

The highly anticipated third Batman movie has finally started filming.  Even though the movie is 14 months away, Warner Brothers has already begun the promotional campaign by releasing this photo of Tom Hardy who will be playing the new villain, BANE!

For those who do not know, Bane is one of Batman’s toughest opponents, who once broke Batman’s back. ¬†Many were surprised to learn Bane would be the main villain in “The Dark Knight Rises”, but after making two great films, I think it’s safe to trust Christopher Nolan.

“The Dark Knight Rises” is scheduled to come out July 20th 2012.
