Here's our theory why these enemies are working together in Arkham City.
Because he does what he wants, he's the god damn Batman
It's not unprecedented. Bane has teamed up with Batman in the comics in the past. Unfortunately I'll never be able to purge my mind of the hatchet job they did to the character in that god awful Batman abortion, Batman Forever. I've always liked the character in the comics and I've always felt he was underutilized.
Because he doesn't want his back broken again.
"Work with me Bane, or I'll hit you with the damn car again."
"No Bane, this time I break you"
He looks so scary in the new film :(
Because he's not just a brute...he's pretty smart you know
Wow, can we have spoiler-free titles? I'd prefer to not know anything about the plot.
Slightly off topic but I was looking at the recent set photos from The Dark Knight Rises and couldn't help but laugh at how small Bane is compared to Batman. Honestly, I can't understand why Christopher Nolan chose one of the lamest Batman villains to serve as the antagonist of his final Bat flick, especially since Bane had already appeared in Batman & Robin.
Would you care to elaborate on why you consider Bane "one of the lamest Batman villains"?
IMO there is nothing unique about him. He is a very overrated character that feels like an evil alternate of Hulk. And I never found his appearance to be anything special, he has always looked quite bland to me. There are an amazing amount of cool Batman villains who have not been portrayed on screen yet. Hugo Strange, Deadshot, Blackmask, Anarky and Hush just to name a few. It's really disappointing to see that none of them will appear in TDKR and instead we are just going to see Bane and Catwoman again.
But lets face it, that wasn't REALLY Bane in Batman and Robin. That was the biggest "throw a character into a movie for filler" out there. Bane is actually a very good villian: very intelligent, very strong, and very evil for being in prison his ENTIRE life. Whole new breed of bad guy. Good portrayal in Batman The Animated Series. Set pics should never come out, people take things out of context. It could have been Bane pre-venom. When you see him in the teaser trailer he's huge.
Just to clarify, I'm not saying TDKR will be a bad movie by any means, I'm expecting it to be on the same level as Batman Begins and TDK, which to say is f**king awesome. But I really wanted to see a Batman villain who has not appeared on the big screen in some form. When rumours had broke out about Hugo Strange, Black-Mask and Deadshot being possible villains I became absolutely ecstatic, especially because Hugo Strange is the father of all Batman villains (ie, the very first Batman super-villain). But soon afterwards it was announced that none of them would appear in TDKR and instead we would just see Bane and Catwoman. I don't know about you but that was a serious let down for me. I have never liked Bane because he possesses many of the chracteristics of previous Batman villains such as the intelligence of Hugo Strange, the brute strength of Killer Croc and the madness of the likes of Joker, Two-Face and Mad-Hatter. That is just my opinion man and nothing can change that. I may not be excited about Christopher Nolan's choice of villain for the movie but I still believe TDKR will be an amazing, jaw-dropping piece of work and you can be assured I'll be at it on open night.
Agreed, personally I wopuld have loved to see The Clock King or Mad Hatter, but I guess that would be in the same vein as Scarecrow, a lesser villian. Catwoman just has no f%cking place in it, they did the romance in the first two movies and she died, let that aspect go.
