Check out more concept art of Bane’s mask for The Dark Knight Rises. Click the jump to see.
Early copies of The Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray/DVD have been leaked. The features that come with the Blu-ray/DVD are the behind-the-scenes documentaries. One of the behind-the-scenes documentaries shows off the Bane concept art that could have been used in the movie.
You can see there were hood-like designs for Bane’s mask. You can also see the early sketch for the design they did use in the film to see how it evolved over development. Another interesting photo is the shot of Tom Hardy as Bane before they digitally removed all of Hardy’s tattoos. It might not have made sense with the character, but the tattoos actually make him look even more menacing.
You can see the concept art and behind-the-scenes down below.
