Bane Deleted Scene Details Surface

The Dark Knight Rises deleted scene explains Bane's backstory. Costume designer Lindy Hemming reveals what we missed. 

Clocking in at a whopping 164 minutes, The Dark Knight Rises is already a mammoth example of storytelling, but even despite its epic running time, there were a still a few key sequences that ended up on the cutting room floor.

Costume designer Lindy Hemming has been talking about one of those scenes, in which Bane's backstory was fleshed out a little, including details surrounding just how Bane came to require that mask.

"The thing that you should have seen during that sequence is [Bane] being injured in his youth," says Hemming. "So one of the fundamental things about his costume is that he has this scar from the back injury. Even if he hasn’t got the bulletproof vest on, he still has to wear the waist belt and the braces."

"In that [deleted] scene in the prison, where he’s learning to fight the same way Batman learned to fight, he’s wearing an early version of his waist belt. There’s a whole early section for Tom Hardy where he’s fighting and being taunted by people. He’s got chains on him, and he’s standing on a wooden thing while people are attacking him. And in that scene, he’s wearing a much more ragged, primitive version of the mask."

And there we were thinking we couldn't wring any more excitement out of The Dark Knight Rises. Hopefully, said scene will be included on the DVD package, giving us even more of an insight into what put Bane on the road to becoming "Gotham's reckoning".

That would be cool!  I just presumed he learned to fight in the League of Shadows.

 I had friends in India who said they were told they used a certain room in the complex for a training scene and they were allowed to photograph it once they had left.  I'd forgotten about that until now, I'll dig that out and send it to mania.

That stuff really should have been left in the movie, as it was I was having a tough time seeing why the prison pit was the worst hell hole on earth.  I guess when Bruce was there they did only have a mediocre physical therapy program but he had a tougher time in the Chinese peison he spent three minutes in in the beginning of Batman begins.

I wonder if we could understand him better with this more ragged, primitive version of his mask?

Should of taken a tip from Lord Vader. Why couldn't tom just do the voice like James Earl Jones did so it came out clearer? I mean don't record his voice through the actual mask. Record it seperately , add some cool little effect and there ya go.

I'd have to see the scene to really judge, but I'm inclined to think it's a bad idea.  I mean, we are told in the movie that he wears the mask because he was so badly beaten that the mask is the only thing that keeps the pain at bay.  If we had him wearing the mask as a boy, then why was he not wearing the mask in the flashbacks in the film when Talia made her infamous leap?  He's not wearing the mask when Ra's rescue's him, so I'm not sure where timeline-wise this would fall.

And, I had no problems understanding Bane so I've never understood all the hate.  Oh, well...people will hate just to hate, nothing anyone can do.

Bane hates what Talia hates, he love her and what hurts the women you love you would want to crush it, Talia wanted revenge on Batman for her fathers murder and to finish his fathers work Bane wanted to see his love fullfill his plans so he comes to hate that wich make her love sad and angry. Thats why i think Bane hates Batman and Gotham so.
