Re: Does Bane being a PURELY physical threat hamper him as a villain?
Hated Bane in the comics and wasn't looking forward to seeing him in TDKR. With that being said, I think Nolan/Hardy did a really good job of the character. Nolan said that Bane was a classic movie monster. While Bane was more then just muscle (in comparison to his appearance in Batman and Robin), I still think I prefer the more cerebral characters. Would have loved to have seen what Nolan would have done with Riddler.
