First Listen: Tom Hardy as Bane in 'The Dark Knight Rises'

Aug 08, 2011

Warning: The following may spoil certain key story points from The Dark Knight Rises. Read and watch the below video at your own risk.

Over the weekend The Dark Knight Rises production took over Pittsburgh's Heinz Field for a scene involving the villainous Bane (Tom Hardy) and his group of thugs. The set up for the scene appears to revolve around Bane barging in during a Gotham football game and destroying part of the stadium, striking fear in all those Gotham citizens attending the game. Bane then gets on the microphone and tells Gotham to take back their city, eventually marching an unknown hostage out in front of the crowd. The video stops before we can see who the hostage is and whether it's one of the central characters from the film (or just some random person), but the video does give us a chance to hear Bane for the first time. His voice appears shaky and almost Darth Vader-like, thanks to the mask he's wearing (which, like Vader, sounds like it's helping him breath).

Check it out below.
