According to an on-set tipster who was in at the filming yesterday, Bane freed a bunch of inmates from Blackgate Prison and delivered (presumably) an anti-Batman screed:

"First scene: small explosion releasing horde of prisoners from the SEI Building (their prison), Bane gives a speech, holds up a photograph, tears it up to applause.

Second scene: horde of prisoners, carrying automatic weapons, yell and charge down the street. Followed by two Tumblers, painted tan and brown (same paintjob as the Batmobile before it was painted black in Batman Begins.) Bane is riding the one in the front, wearing his mask and a large winter coat."

Sounds interesting. And the look certainly seems a bit less silly than the luchador costume he ends up with a lot of the time in the comics, which kind of downplay how serious he is.

From here,

For legality, the origin of Bane,

They should leave his upper face covered, lower exposed. He doesn't look serious there, he looks like Trapjaw.

Ah...but, if my theory is correct that they're ramping up the 'Anti-Batman' aspect of the character, then this is the ideal choice for mask placement. Batman covers his upper-face, to shield his identity while allowing his emotions to be expressed; Bane seems to keep his identity in the open, and masks his mouth to appear more fearful, and add a dread mystery to his expression.

Fearsome is the word you're looking for, not fearful. Fearful is one thing Bane would never want to make himself look.

Agreed, he should give Mortal Kombat back their mask. If anything is going to interest me about this movie, it's going to be Catwoman, still waiting to see her.

I actually think the comic mask is more effective.

Same here!

I mean, a Luchador mask as a lot more reasons to be used, story-wise, than this...huh...SM getup!

"Bane gives a speech, holds up a photograph, tears it up to applause."

Interesting detail with that? Set photos I've seen showed him ripping the photo--and it looked a bit like Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent...

I live in Pittsburgh and watched some of the filming, and from what I understand there were 3 of the camo tumblers. I could see one from my vantage point, plus the one Bane was standing on (I saw him, totally awesome).

Firstly, despite the slight hint that Nolan may be drawing on elements of Hush, or Two-Face in 'The Dark Knight Returns' with that coat, in order to better cement Bane's status as an Anti-Batman, it looks more as if this'll be a scene-specific costume; the photograph previously submitted, as well as the glimpse of Bane in the teaser, shows him bare-shouldered.

Secondly, as silly as it may look, this is all preliminary. Plenty of people mocked the shabby appearance of Ledger's Joker, as well as his 'The Crow'-style makeup, and then the trailers and the movie itself turn up, and BOOM! Iconic image.

Thirdly, speculation time! As the chanting and speech-making would imply, it seems that perhaps Bane's role in the film is modelled partly on the Mutant Leader from 'Dark Knight Returns', an iconoclastic gang-leader...perhaps implying that the theme of the film is leadership, just as that of 'Batman Begins' was fear and that of 'TDK' was chaos?

Nolan does seem to like the facial disguises, though, from Scarecrow's sack mask to Joker's scars, and this roaring monster is no different. I wonder if Bane's voice is going to have the gentlemanly purr of Hardy's role in 'Inception', or the cockney roar of his titular part in 'Bronson', or maybe he'll contrast the bulk and compliment the mask with a creepy rasp not unlike his Praetor Shinzon in 'Star Trek: Nemesis'?

In any case, I look tentatively forward to this film, especially the inevitable glimpses we'll get at Hathaway and stunt doubles as Catwoman, or a new souled-up Batsuit to take on Bane, or even a shot of a vehicle crashing into a building (the backbone of this series).

Or a couple of photos of Michael Caine being cool. I'd settle for that.

I think they should have went with the clothes they picked but let him keep his comics mask.

It sort of explains why there's no Robin in the Nolan-verse. The night he debuted, Bane showed up and... well, let's just say, whose underwear do you think Bane is wearing on his head?

From: [personal profile] whitesycamore
If the underwear ended up on his head then he was either doing it wrong, or doing it right but just... very very thoroughly.

And I'm still not even sure what "it" is. Perhaps you should tell me when I'm older.

He's not pulling off the fluffy collar look very well. I think it's because it doesn't gell very correctly with the jockstrap on his face.

He looks cold.

That coat is an unnecessary fashion accessory. Bane should not let the weather effect him.

Then he TRULY shouldn't have the coat. As I said, Bane should not let the weather effect him.
