Re: Batman Begins v.s The Dark Knight Rises
Nolan's Bane, his mask and outfit specifically, should be used in the comics from now on instead of the Luchadore mask. I like the Mexican wrestling style as im a fan of that stuff but it's very 90s now. Nolan actually improved the character IMO.
The Vengeance of Bane stuff is cool. His whole prison origin is awesome and the back breaking in Knightfall is iconic. I also like how Nolan drew from the Bane-Talia-Ra's connection. But the rest of Knightfall was always MEH to me. Never liked how he was in animation/video games. And I haven't read anything great about Bane in the comics since the 90s. So they should move on, and evolve the character in the source material by going with Nolan's version.
Im pretty sure I saw some recent pics of how theyre changing Bane's outfit in the comics bit by bit. It's like a cross between Hardy's Bane and classic Bane. I like that but they should just use Hardy's mask. Just everything basically.
I don't really care for Chuck Dixon that much to be honest.
"Lets make one thing very clear here - Nolan's films are as faithful an adaptation as there is. It pays homage to its source material, remains true to its characters and above all else places the story first and foremost." - jmc
