So Bane Walks into a Football Stadium…Posted 11:27 pm on Monday, August 8th, 2011 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
In Batman Begins, Ra’s al Ghul poisons Gotham’s water supply. In The Dark Knight, the Joker blows up a hospital and creates a city-wide panic. In The Dark Knight Rises, Bane ruins a game of football. Oh no, not the fans of Gotham Rogues. An extra was able to capture the scene that was located at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, featuring a speech from Bane to the crowd. So far, he doesn’t sound too intimidating, especially with the mask on. I’m hoping ADR will fix all that.
So far everything about the production for The Dark Knight Rises isn’t looking too good, from the look of Catwoman to Bane’s outfit. Now we have this to add to the list. I know Christopher Nolan will prove me wrong.
Also in Batman news, Anne Hathaway defends the cat suit… I mean the not-cat suit.
“I was not going to admit it: I asked someone to send me a few reactions [to the photo],” she said. “And I happen to know that MTV’s reaction was ‘meh.’ ”
Now, we’re not sure about the “meh” quote, but we will admit to using the phrases “cautiously optimistic,” “unflattering” and “underwhelming” in our analysis.
Regardless, Hathaway said that no matter the first impressions, there is a lot more happening with that suit.
“What I am happy to say is, if you didn’t like the photo, you only see about a 10th of what that suit can do,” she promised. “And if you did like the photo, you have excellent taste.”
The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20, 2012.
