Some really cool details for the upcoming film were released recently:

From Empire:

Chris Nolan says ” The Prologue is basically the first six, seven minutes of the film. It’s the introduction to Bane and a taste of the rest of the film.”

Nolan: ” With Bane we are looking to give Batman a physical challenge that he hasn’t had before.”

THE BREATHING MECHANISM: ” He was injured early in his story. He’s suffering from pain and he needs gas to survive. He cannot survive the pain without the mask. The pipes from the mask go back along his jawline and feed into the thing at the back where there are two canisters of what ever it is..the anesthetic.”

Nolan: ” Our story picks up EIGHT years after The Dark Knight”.

“What our IMAX prologue is aiming at showing is that Bane’s a very different kind of villain than Batman has faced before in our films.”  Nolan continues, “He’s a great sort of movie monster, but with an incredible brain, and that was a side of him that hadn’t been tapped before. Because the stories from the comics are very epic and very evocative – very much in the way that Bruce Wayne’s origin story is epic and evocative. We were looking to really parallel that with our choice of villain. So he is a worthy adversary.”


From Drew McWeeny at Hitfix,

“Our first best look at what he’s got up his sleeve will be the six-minute prologue sequence in IMAX that is playing exclusively in front of the 70MM IMAX engagements of “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.” The people who I’ve talked to who have seen the six-minute segment just smile at the mention of it, and I’ve been told to expect something on a much larger scale than the opening bank robbery from “The Dark Knight” which played in front of the IMAX prints of “I Am Legend.” That’s going to be the moment where we really get a sense of what tone to expect from this one, and I’m willing to bet it’s going to be very different than either of the first two films.”

Tom Hardy on Bane: “He’s brutal. He’s a terrorist. A really horrible piece of work.”
