Re: The "Nolan's views on Batman villains" thread
Bane's original mask looks more like a death's head. Its not at all luchadoresque whereas his TAS mask is.
On Chris B's Batman fansite there's old "leaks" you can find pertaining to TDKR. One of the more interesting ones included Talia, Black Mask and the Bat. Perhaps Nolan was going to use Black Mask at one point? I think he could be slotted into the film in Daggett's place if you wanted.
"Never call him that!" Spittle sprayed from Theon's lips. "Ramsay Bolton, not Ramsay Snow, never Snow, never, you have to remember his name, or he will hurt you."
"He is welcome to try. Whatever name he goes by."
