The first photo of British actor Tom Brady as the villain “Bane” was released on the net yesterday. Bane will be the main villain in the upcoming Batman movie, Batman 3: The Dark Knight Rises.
But who is “Bane?”
Bane is the test subject for a drug named Venom, which grants him superhuman strength and durability. The character first made an appearance in the 1997 film Batman & Robin starring George Clooney.
The Dark Knight Rises began filming a couple of weeks ago. Anne Hathaway will take on the role as Selina Kyle AKA Catwoman and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt as officer John Blake.
Christian Bale reprises the role of Batman. Michael Caine returns as Alfred the Butler, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.
The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20, 2012.
