'The Dark Knight Rises' deleted scene explored Bane's backstory

By
A deleted scene from The Dark Knight Rises would reportedly have explored Bane's origins.

The backstory of Tom Hardy's masked villain was partially explained in Christopher Nolan's film, but costume designer Lindy Hemming told GQ that a cut scene would have gone into more detail.

Digital Spy's to-camera verdict on the trilogy's long-awaited conclusion.


Specifically, the scene in question showed Bane being critically injured as a young man, and later being taunted by his peers for his disability.

"The thing that you should have seen during that sequence is [Bane] being injured in his youth," Hemming said. "So one of the fundamental things about his costume is that he has this scar from the back injury."

She later continued: "If you look at the film, unless they've cut it - and I'm sure they haven't - there's a whole early section for Tom Hardy where he's fighting and being taunted by people.

"He's got chains on him, and he's standing on a wooden thing while people are attacking him. And in that scene, he's wearing a much more ragged, primitive version of the mask."

Writer Chuck Dixon, who co-created the character of Bane, recently stated that he was pleased with Hardy's portrayal.
