Re: Bane's place in the rogues gallery post-Rises
Here's what Wikipedia says:
Although Clint Eastwood was discussed for the role of Two-Face in the 1960s Batman television series, reimagined as a news anchor who was disfigured when a television set exploded in his face, he did not appear as the character was labeled "too gruesome and too violent" for the "kid-friendly" attitude that surrounded the show (comics and cartoon strips were subject to strict censorship at this time).
Favourite Films of 2013 (that I've seen):
1. Gravity 2. Prisoners 3. Captain Phillips 4. The Wolverine (Unleashed) 5. Star Trek Into Darkness 6. Before Midnight 7. The East 8. Man of Steel 9. Iron Man 3 10. The Place Beyond the Pines
