This is BANE

No, not that BANE! This Bane!

So, Tom Hardy as Bane, huh? Looks pretty cool to me. After seeing this, it will be hard for anyone to argue that Hardy doesn't have the look to pull of the man that broke The Bat. I, however, am disappointed with the lack of luchador in his look, and I honestly can't understand why they didn't go full mask with this, unless this is some sort of muzzle-type mask.

But honestly, the picture isn't the most exciting news here. To me, the most exciting part is how this was revealed. The promo picture of Tom Hardy as Bane from the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises was released to the public through viral marketing. If you tweeted the phrase "#thefirerises", your twitter avatar would go into the creation of the above picture, and if anyone remembers the viral marketing campaign from The Dark Knight, then you should know we have a lot more in store.

Most likely, the campaign will kick off around San Diego Comic Con, and will last right until the movie is released, if we can base this off of past experiences. So, hopefully some of this will still be around in October for New York Comic Con, because I desperately want to participate.

But what do you think? Are you as excited as we are? Leave your opinions in the comments section below!
