Default Re: Batman Begins v.s The Dark Knight Rises

I prefer the Nolan style mask as well. In profile, it gives Bane a more monstrous profile. (Plus an armored vest and heavy coat are good tactical sense vs a leotard or muscle shirt.) I am thinking of the shots of Bane staring out from the cell, where he's giving Bruce the speech about hope. As I've said numerous times, I feel like this Bane was Bruce's opposite in terms of origins, though that's were the divergence between the characters comes in.
