Even just going by a few clips, images, and trailers, there’s obviously a rather distinct difference between how Christopher Nolan is using the Bane character in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and how Joel Schumacher used him in ‘Batman and Robin’. One thing that’s been a source of curiosity in terms of Nolan’s version is how Bane’s mask/use of venom is going to be incorporated. I’ll admit that there’s potential for this come off silly, but between Nolan and Tom Hardy, I’m confident they can pull it off. Rolling Stone Magazine (via Collider here) has an image of Bane with his costume explained, including the mask, and you can see it after the jump. I’m sold personally, but you can decide for yourself below…
