Get a glimpse of Tom Hardy's transformation into Bane

7:00 PM on 11.21.2012 // Thor Latham

Spoiler alert: he gained weight

Tom Hardy's Bane proved to be a capable foil to Christian Bale's Batman, strange accent aside, and I don't think anyone who isn't familiar with what Hardy looks like would recognize him as the the bulky bad-guy, even if you had two pictures side by side. Obviously his face is concealed, but Hardy isn't really a big guy. They had to make him look appropriately huge for The Dark Knight Rises, because, well, Bane is supposed to be massive in stature. In the spirit of the upcoming home video release of the film, The Sun has shared a little clip from the extras that offers some insight into Hardy's physical transformation. Check it out down below.


I always find it fascinating to see what an actor is willing to go through for a role. Obviously Bale is a prime example of this because that guy goes nuts whenever he's losing or gaining weight for a part, but Hardy's done it himself as well. For anyone interested, I highly suggest you see Nicolas Winding Refn'sBronson, where Hardy has built himself up to look like the notorious British prisoner that the film is named after. As a side note, you also see his penis. Like, alot.
