Bane’s strength is revealed in new Dark Knight Rises trailer

The newest Dark Knight Rises trailer has been released, and it does contain a spoiler that could ruin the story for you. Don’t watch the trailer or read this if you don’t want to be spoiled.

Things are not looking good for our dark crusader. The trailer reveals that Bane knows of Batman’s true identity. He calls out to Batman by saying, “Mr. Wayne,” as he catches Batman’s right hook with his hand. What we see next is Batman getting pwned by Bane’s push kick. I mean, his ass was flying backwards by the power of Bane’s kick. That’s definitely a hint that Bane’s physical strength is enhanced.


At the beginning of the trailer, there are a bunch of quick cuts, one featuring Bane punching through a concrete wall. It looks like Nolan’s comfortable with keeping Bane’s physical strength intact to some degree. I was worried that he wouldn’t have his incredible strength in the movie because Christopher Nolan likes to keep his film grounded in reality. I don’t have to worry about that now.

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20, 2012.
