The Dark Knight Rises Prologue will focus on Bane hijacking a plane
All Batman fans Listen! Bane is coming to town! Literally.
Just to warn those who want go to theaters without knowing anything about the film you better not read this article due to its Spoiler content.
If you're still are with me, then we'll be going through some juicy content about The Dark Knight Rises' prologue.
The six or seven minute prologue that will be seen before Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol will focus on Bane's inception, played by Tom Hardy, and his attempt at assassinating a Saddam Hussein-type dictator by hijacking a plane.
According to Rama’s Screen, which claims it was sent an email from a reliable source who had seen the prologue, according to the viewer,
'It is a mind blowing action sequence set aboard the Hercules plane'
Which shouldn't be surprising, having Nolan broths behind it.
Bane and his mercenaries hijack a military plane transporting a dictator of a country which is in
unrest (think Saddam Hussein type figure) He successfully kills the leader, but makes some mistakes along the way and is unable to safely land the plane. Because of the resulting injuries from the accident, he has to undergo complicated surgeries and that is how he winds up with that scar down his neck and the need for the mask to numb the pain.'
The film site claims that Bane's story has been radically and beautifully re-worked by director Christopher Nolan.
'He is raised by Ra’s al Ghul [Bruce Wayne's old mentor] and his up bringing mirrors that of Bruce Wayne, It’s a mirror of Bruce, except it’s darker and twisted. Bane is trained to be an assassin for the League of Shadows. He kills political figures that are deemed unfit by the LOS. So he is a bit of a Che Guevara/Jason Bourne type character.'
Bane is described as a 'revolutionary and an assassin' who is hellbent on starting his own uprising.
Christopher Nolan conformed with Empire magazine that Bane would be the focus of the preview but kept tight-lipped about any other details.
The Dark Knight Rises, starring Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway, will be released in cinemas on July 20, 2012.
