The other day we jokingly showed you some fan-made sketches of what Bane (Tom Hardy) might have looked like without the mask on in The Dark Knight Rises, including images of him as a clown, an alien, an elephant and Homer Simpson. But today we've got the real thing -- both a behind-the-scenes image of Tom Hardy without the mask on (proving without the mask he looked kinda like, um, Tom Hardy), as well as some concept sketches of Bane and the Bane mask from Behind the Scenes with Batman: The Making of The Dark Knight Trilogy.
These are clearly rough drawings showing an assortment of potential mask combinations, some of which make him look like a crazy wrestler. The second concept sketch is more complete, with the mask looking a bit more menacing and obtrusive than the final version. Check out the images below and let us know what you think.
