While The Joker was an agent of chaos and destruction in "The Dark Knight", Tom Hardy says his Bane in "The Dark Knight Rises" is a villain with a completely different approach.
"Bane is not that guy. There is a very meticulous and calculated way about Bane. There is a huge orchestration of organization to his ambition. He is also a physical threat to Batman. There is nothing vague about Bane. No jokes. He's a very clean, clear villain" the actor told EW recently.
Meanwhile Warner Brothers has unleashed more photos from the film, this time high-res and crystal clear versions of some previously released ones including some great quality shots of Christian Bale and Hardy in costume.
