Bane Almost Looked Like a Gimp in TDKR

Bane Look 2

The Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray comes out soon (just kidding, it’s out), and with it will be a bit of concept art showing what Bane was going to look like before they decided on a final version of his mask. As you can see, we dodged quite a few bullets here.

More concepts are below, including one that has him wearing what appears to be parts of a plastic bag, and another which does indeed have the real mask, but also imagines him covered in tattoos like some sort of space-pirate. I think they wanted to go with “mythical warrior from afar” rather than “gangbanger” which is what the tattoos could imply. And I think we’re all┬áthankfully┬áthat he didn’t show up as a pro-wrestler/gimp above.

Check out the other photos below, or see them all on the Blu-ray shortly.
