This.

The need to make him goddamn pseudo-Hulk size is nauseating already. I mean, the fact they've started giving him the armored-vest look is all fine and well, but it's pretty moot when most of his upper torso sticks out of it because of how huge he is. Just have him be the size he was in his original appearance and you'd be ready to go. Hell, I agree with another poster who suggested he be The Rock's size in the comics. Keep the Venom and get rid of those ginormous tubes and tank, which are frankly retarded weaknesses at this point. Something rather creepy they could possibly do IMO, is have the tubes be underneath his skin. At least they wouldn't be such a glaring weakness then.

What is cool though, is that they're actually making him intelligent, which is definitely a step in the right direction.

They made Bane loo so intimidating, so vicious, he brought Gotham to it's knees and crushed Batman, only to have him cry for a girl who put him in the friendzone and basically took his balls with her too and suddenly became boss. What a way to ruin the character of Bane.

Yeah, because people aren't allowed to love each other without having sex. Screwin' is the only way to connect a man and a woman on any compassionate level.


Just kidding, that's absurd.

So much wrong, where do I start...

Have you heard of a connection where sex isn't involved between a man and a woman where a man sincerely cares for a woman without getting in her pants? Did no one teach you that you don't HAVE to always end up in a girl's pants? Bane's love for Talia wasn't exactly like the comics where he wanted the "goodies". He saved Talia as a child and the painful memories of when Talia was telling their history made him cry as well as her leaving to her apparent death since this was it.

Plus, while it will always be debatable that Talia was the true boss or Talia and Bane worked together, I will just say this: they both needed each other with this plan of theirs. Bane brought the muscle and the voice that the LoS needed during this siege; Talia brought in the mind in helping the foundation of the energy project as well as being hidden until she could make the move, because of Bane, to get the head chair for Wayne Enterprises.

I think Bane probably had just as much to do with the planning as she did.

This. Bane's personal touch was all over the plan. I mean, I know the social revolution bit was all a ruse in the end, but why would they have even gone with that part of the plan had they not truly believed in the reasons behind it?

Bane disobeyed Talia when he pointed a shotgun in Batman's face. Does that sound like a simple henchman?

Bane was awesome. The acting and voice fantastic. Tom Hardy did a great job.

Physically, it wasn't quite what you'd expect. Casting a 5'8" Bane, who then bulked to 30% body fat was a minor fail. But I liked that he was more realistic than previous Banes. And clever use of camera angles, lighting and stunt doubles made up for it. Not to mention great acting. It's a tough choice for me between Bane and Joker for the best villain of the Trilogy.

In fairness henchmen have been known to not follow orders explicitly if their boss doesn't find out about it. Since they all thought they were mere minutes away from destruction, what difference would it make if Bane killed Batman a few minutes prematurely?

Talia was never going to know. Neither was anyone else.

I never felt Bane was a henchman, but once Talia is kind of awkwardly thrown into the mix, you are left scratching your head as to what kind of relationship/partnership they really had. Seeing them actually interact together and command as a unit would have went a long way in giving us insight into how they ran the new LOS.

Yes, it was all coming to an end, but a simple henchmen WOULD listen to Talia if her plan was for Bruce to "feel the fire". Bane was just beaten by the man who he broke earlier so him saying no to Talia was Bane caring what he wanted before he died from a nuclear bomb and that was to get his satisfactory kill.

Once the reveal happened, I never thought it was confusing or anything. Both needed each other with this plan, imo. If Nolan never made an attempt to say who was bossing who or what have you, I would never care tbh. If you think about it, each person could carry out the term of "theatricality"(Bane as the voice during the siege) and "deception"(Talia as Miranda Tate).

This.
As I understand it, the whole reason why Gotham/Batman was targeted was because of Ras' death and Talia wanted to finish the work of the man she hated, but then loved when he died. However it seemed like the work of Ras vs Talia was much different. Whereas Ras wanted to level Gotham for all the corruption that had grown over the years, Talia simply wanted to level Gotham period. If that's the case, does that make the many revolutionary speeches that Bane gave irrelevant? In other words, were they given as mere distractions to give the citizens hope so that the LOS could finish their grand plan? I was never a fan of seeing the LOS come back, but it would have been more interesting (to me) had Bane really been a revolutionary that was on the side of the "oppressed criminals"
as opposed to Ras hardline on having even a simple thief be put to death.

Talia waned to level off Gotham period because Talia didn't view the city and its citizens as innocent especially after her father was killed. Talia just wanted to plainly destroy Gotham, so of course it was much different than what Ra's wanted to achieve in BB. There's no secrecy in that.

Does it make Bane's revolutionary speeches irrelevant? That's a big no. It was a front as a means to wait for the core to heat up while Bane watches the city go into a martial law state.

Exactly. All that baloney Bane was spouting to Gotham was just bull to give Gotham hope to poison their souls or some such hogwash.

Lol, of course it was hogwash! That isn't the point of what the LoS was trying to do....does anyone actually believe that was part of their plan? They wanted to spew some kind of fake hope and they succeeded, but it was all a joke on their end.

Can you explain that?

I thought it was brilliant how they had bane play the political radical only as a guise to have the people rise up only so he could squash them down literally.

Yeah, at least Ra's and Joker believed in what they were saying. When they're touting their crazy ideals it's great because you know they believe in what they're saying.

That's just it, the people of Gotham did not rise up. They all cowered like frightened sheep during Bane's siege.

But the plan wasn't to get ALL of Gotham to rise up. Bane wanted an extreme 99% vs 1% movement and it happened where cops and businessmen(whom Bane tried to view as the real corruption in Gotham City) were being sentenced and killed. Yes, the idea is skewered from Bane crashing that football game to letting the criminals in Blackgate Prison to run amok, but it was pretty much Bane trying to get the rich and what have you turned upside down.

The people of Gotham didn't do much of anything, to be honest. They were worth less to the story than random NPCs in a video game.
