Tom Hardy performs at Heinz Field for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

Yesterday thousands of extras filled up Heinz Field for a scene in The Dark Knight Rises. Bane showed up, and while it’s hard to hear him, we get our first listen at what he might sound like. Check out the video of Bane’s scene and photos from the shoot, courtesy of some really brave fans. No huge plot points are revealed, but if you’re avoiding spoilers, don’t watch the video!

          Well this is a batman-news site and the only reason to keep coming here is if you want spoilers about the movie otherwise there would be no articles on this site or nothing to talk about.  If chris only told us that bane appeared on the field and that some guy filmed it….we would all probably search for it anyways. 

          I’m not happy about the spoilers either but I don’t think it’s this website’s fault.  Chris is just doing what this site is meant for.  It’s the idiots in Pittsburgh who are camping out in trees next to the sets so they can record every single shot filmed who are to blame.

          Not to throw Shad on your opinon brother, but he can still have the exact same background an NOT actually be Spanish. His father could have been a Brit who was in a foreign country as a political or social uprising occured… Etcetv. Bane ends up the little British boy in a dirty South American Prison! Works perfectly in some ways. Keep the faith!…and don’t eat eachother over this

        I gotta say while it was interesting to hear Bane’s unfinished voice (I swear I laughed sooo hard!!!), this is undoubtedly a huge spoiler.  I was thinking at the football scene there would be a big fight but it seems like Bane will stage a live execution or something. 

        This would have been a really chilling and impactful scene….and now we’ve seen it.  Granted, the scene is nowhere near completion so the effect will still be huge (especially when we hear what bane’s voice will really sound like), we’re all probably still gonna be blown away by it, but still…..add this to the list of huge spoilers.

        I’m turning into the guy who always complains about spoilers yet keeps coming to this site lol.  I don’t even know what I want! hahaha

    At least we know how he’ll sound like in the film so no more spanish related theories for his character but his dialouge sounds like that of a revolutionary :) very interesting,I cant wait to see how this turns out!

  • BaneLuchaLibre

    He sounds like a dorky English man to me.. Hate the voice, i swear i almost though he was about to say DEAR SIR, I’D FANCY CRUMPETS WITH MY TEA KIND SIR.. . Should’ve gone for a deeper/raspy/Spanish voice..

    • Banealghul

      You might think its bad, but Mexican Bane would not work as well in TDKR, Bane is from the league of shadows and they have no connection to Mexican/Spanish whatsoever, it will obviously look better in the final film, after all, the reason he talks with an english accent, is that he was raised by Ras Al Ghul(Liam Neeson) so the british accent works.

      • http://twitter.com/IrishMitchy Mitch Anderson

        Liam Neeson is Irish not English, so that doesn’t actually make a whole lot of sense. Also I seriously doubt that’s the voice we’ll hear come July 2012.

          I know that hes my 3rd cousin, but for batman begins his voice was to sound more english, and after all tom hardy is english, and it is probably rather hard for him to change it

      I can imagine Mexican Bane coming out threatning to destroy Gotham, if he doesn’t get his hourly wage as a school janitor of 1 dollar up to 1.50, lol it wouldnt work especially with Christian Bale saying stuff to him like ” Why do you wanna kill me!!” and Bane replying with “Ce?”

      • Cain

        That was completely ignorant and racist.

        And Bane isn’t even Mexican! He’s from a fictional Caribbean island.  I’m no fan of political correctness, but if you’re gonna stereotype people at least get their nationality correct.

        P.S. Minimum wage is around $7.  And it’s not ” Ce” its “Que”.

    His Voice sounds amazing…

    I’m kinda surprised people are upset that he isn’t Hispanic, why is that such a big deal? This is Hardy and Nolan’s portrayal of Bane, it’s NOT gonna be a direction translation of the comics.

    I think having a creepy, British accent gives the character a lot more depth and personality.

    I like it.

    • BaneLuchaLibre

      There is nothing creepy about a British accent.. It just sounds girly, out of line, not even rude or scary.. Want a creepy accent? African, Iraqi or Israeli, German… that’s a creepy accent.

  • Mgd4444

    Oh my God, I hope they overdub his voice in the studio. Maybe Hardy can’t talk with the mask on and they’ll have him record a new voice when the filming is over. Because, that sounds awful. Not at all fitting the character in my opinion. He sounds like Alfred’s wimpy nephew.

    The more info that leaks, the more nervous I’m getting. I need to stop looking at leaks.

      That’s actually a GREAT point that I hadn’t considered: yes his voice sounds odd, but with that mask on there’s almost no way that’s his finished voice.  It would almost have to be redubed after principle photography is completed.

  • Spailding007

    If you look at ChangeTheChannel’s other videos from the shoot, you’d see that the Tumbler also makes an appearance at the Heinz Field shoot. Question… Why are all the Tumblers in camo vs. black?

    • Banealghul

      Well batmans was black and Bane knows were batman got his tumbler and bane stole himself some from the impound lot at were they are kept, and the original default color of the tumblers is brown camo, batman sprayed his black though, and the brown really matches banes appearance, Basically Bane is a mirror image of Batman, he was trained by the same person as batman in the ninja code, expect bane is stronger because he is pumped up with performance inhancers, but him and batman think very alike.

    hardy said himself that you can’t understand s*** from him talking with that mask on

  • Spaulding007

    To those concerned with Hardy’s vocal portrayal of Bane: This will not be the final product. Frankly, I find it odd they even piped Bane’s voice through the stadium sound system in the first place, with all the echo and reverb bound affect the end sound. I bet they weren’t even recording sound for Bane on that take. I’ve been in films. If there is so much as an errant audible pin drop they will redo the take. For a movie on this scale, they wouldn’t even take the risk. I bet almost all of Bane’s lines are recorded in post prod.

    Three things. First, this is BATMAN-NEWS.COM, NOT friggin’ BOF. Spoilers are posted here. That’s been established since Day 1. Second, I always love how people complain about spoilers that no one made them watch. “I pushed the play button, but it’s YOUR FAULT for posting it in the first place!” Wrong. Finally, it’s mostly been covered, but the voice here can’t be finished product. Even at that, what we’re hearing is from a cell phone camera. Ever tried to record something at a concert with that or a point-and-shoot? Sound kind of gets jacked. Even if that’s the case, I’d wager there’s going to be some post-production work on that.

      First take he said “Behold the instrument of your destruction”. They wheeled out some giant sphere that reminded me of a classic supervillain doomsday device. Possibly something stolen from Wayne Enterprises like the tumblers and the vaporizers League of Shadows used to emit the fear gas in Batman Begins.

        He always said “behold the instrument of your liberation” every take, unless you’re talking about the first rehearsal take where they didn’t pipe the sound through the stadium speakers

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_7IU54CQKYY3HJ2UFEC3NYW4GWM tom

          I’m pretty sure the first take he said “destruction”. Because the line went from “Behold the …” to “This is the instrument of your liberation” which is in the video.

I mean, he must be a totally messed up figure, and he is definitely addicted to something, that is essential for his survival…!

    Nevertheless, I dont think TDKR will be as gritty and realistic as TDK.
    Nevertheless twice, this is gonna be a great interpretation of Bane.

    • Elvisionary

      Why on earth would it be The Joker? The last thing Bane says is “Why don’t you identify yourself to world?” If anything, it’s Batman. Or it’s someone they THINK is the Batman.

      • Spaulding007

        Um, because no one knew the Joker’s identity. And if the crowd was cheering, one would think Bane would be “making an example” of someone Gotham truly despised. Depending on the timeframe from TDK, it could PLAUSABY be The Joker. Can anyone else attest to the fact the person Bane had “hostage” looked like The Joker?

        3)  In the Knightfall comic storyline, featuring Bane as the main antagonist, the Joker has a short but vital cameo role.

      mmmm….. what about this?

      bane takes the joker out of arkham and kill him infront the crowd to make an statement: I’m not the chaos, i’m the new order, this guy here, he’s the chaos blowing up hospitals and all that kind of shit…. I will guide you to the glory, and to make it happen we all need to kill the batman. but of course the truth is that Bane is with the leagues of shadows, and wants to destroy gotham.how this can happen? who’s playing the joker? i’ve no fuck idea, but i guess that is part of the “trick under the sleeve” of Nolan

      just some wild thoughts :p

    • Joselo

      i don’t if you were there, but i DID and from what i saw the hostage is the actor Alon Aboutboul.

    Once again Batman News delivers!!

    To all the people complaining about spoilers, how is any of this a spoiler?? I’ve followed everything about this movie from beginning to now and I don’t have a clue what’s going on in this scene. So Bane is talking at football game, we have no idea what’s happening or what’s going on. Honest to god the most spoilerish information (in terms of plot) that’s come out so far has been the trailer.

    As for Hardy’s voice, it sounds awesome but rest assured they will re-do in post production.

    The voice really grows on you. And I read on the site FB page that that was a rough first take. People need to go down to the pharmacy, buy a pack of chill pills, go home, pour a glass of water, take the chill pills, sit down on the couch, light up a joint and….chiiiiiiill.

  • M4TTH3W

    The hostage could be Commissioner Gordon.  That’s probably why he’s in the hospital in the trailer.

      Bane had a henchman called “Bird” in the comics….

  • BigBatFan

    I think it’s the mad scientist, definitely not joker. And I dont think Bane is trying to convince people he’s there to create order as such, in the scene he blows up the football pitch and kills all the players and the refs, not very civilised. I still dont think JGL will be a villain, I think he’ll just be an important cop like Gordon has been.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joel.montgomery Joel Montgomery

    Just want to say, I’m glad I’m not the only one who decided to be naughty and take vids/pics.  It’s going to be an awesome scene when it’s all put together in post.

    To weigh in on the conversation, here’s what I caught from my experience:
    1. Every take that they piped in his voice over the loudspeakers, I heard “this is the instrument of your liberation.”2. I have no idea what all exactly happened during our scene as far as real plot is concerned, and I was there the whole day.  We were deliberately kept in the dark about everything except the most basic information that we needed in order to be able to do our parts and act like a real crowd in a real danger situation.
    3. As to the hostage, I was a level down from the guy who recorded this particular video, so I didn’t see very clearly – a lot of us thought it was Gordon because the guy was tall enough to be Gary Oldman and had a similar haircut, but I borrowed a guy’s binoculars next to me and took a closer look.  It wasn’t, I repeat, WASN’T Gordon, nor was it the Joker (Y’all posting in a troll thread, there, folks).  I actually concur with the post that said the hostage was Alon Aboutboul.  No idea who the person is supposed to be in the film, but I know that in the last take they did of this, I’m pretty sure the hostage/guy on his knees was executed in some fashion.  As far as we were able to hear in the audience (whether they cut audio so we couldn’t hear or whatever), the hostage never identified himself to the world, so we won’t know until somebody can find better footage with higher quality or until we see the finished product.
    4. The tumblers were only there to get the crowd excited, from what I can see – they didn’t get used in any of the filming the day we were all there.  All they did was drive around the field and give Hines Ward a ride.  One cool thing about the tumblers, though, is that there IS one that has a large tank-type cannon on top of it, which they used to demonstrate one of the explosives that they littered the field with.  We WERE told that Bane stole the camo tumblers, so I’m not sure whether Batman will have a tumbler in this movie or not.My take on the whole thing is that this scene is just adding to the notion that Bane is trying to break the Bat through a war of attrition and exhaustion.  If people are concerned about spoilers, they probably shouldn’t come to a site that’s specifically dedicated to giving as much information as possible about the movie.  It’s not like we’ve given away that Bane is Batman’s twin brother’s college roommate twice removed on his uncle’s side or something… if you don’t want to know, then don’t visit the site.

      Alon Aboutboul is supposed to play as the mad scientist. Hm… I wonder how these lines fit into context with him then?

      oh yeah, now we’re talking… did you film this??  Crearly not gordon

  • Fan

    He did say “destruction”.  In the next take he started to “de….”( like he had forgotten that he was supposed to change “destruction” to another word) and then said “liberation”.   from that point on he daid “liberation” .  That’s how it sounded to me.

    • BigBatFan

       the instrument of liberation must be that weird looking bomb thing, and if that is the mad scientist on his knees then he must have made it, and banes just stole it from him. and then made an example of him, showing the power he had, showing that he takes what he wants.

  • Apdynasty23

    If his voice really is going to sound like that, which I’m ok with because it’s different, then that must be Bane in the teaser; you know, the guy that looks frail climbing out of the well. Remember?!

  • DevGau614

    What is up with the voice?  It doesnt sound like I would think Bane would sound like.  You would imaging bane to have a deep, bellowing voice.  This guy sounds like he’s going to off some football players then have some tea and crumpets with the queen!  Reminiscent of a kookie guy from A clockwork orange.

    I really hope Nolan has something good up his sleeve for Bane… or like some of the rumors state…have a much more menacing secondary villain. 

    As with most things Nolan and Batman, we need to sit back and wait for the final product. 

    • Bubba

       This voice seriously came out of the blue….I don’t think anybody was expecting his voice to be like that.  But I kinda liked it.  It’s an oddly creepy and foreboding voice.  When he spoke, his voice came with a kind of doomsday feel to it.  But in the final product, the voice will sound better so there ya go.

  • iAM nolan

    Maybe Alfred is secretely Bane hahaha, or maybe they were friends at the army

    awsome

  • http://grauskala.blogspot.com/ OneEyedWillie

    I really liked Bane’s voice… he sounds like a 100 years old man! 
    1- And why is that? Venom side effects? He’s vacilating and clearing his throat all the time… something like Jokers liking his mouth tic in TDK! We must see the context of the flick to analyze better.
    2- What is that metallic sphere? In my opinion looks like the earthquake machine that appeared in comics, and match with the TDKR teaser poster!
    3- Who is the hostage? Could be some Batman’s double… Blake? Lucious? Or the mad scientist… some people said that is the scientist indeed! 

    • Bubba

      The first time I watched the video, I was taken aback…really wasn’t expecting that voice.  The second time I watched it I laughed when he said instrument.  Then the third time watched it to analyze it…it was very creepy, almost sinister.  It gave the video a kind of doomsday feel to it, especially when he brought out that machine.  Of course, the final product will make his voice sound better, and hopefully, creepier.  I like so far how this bane is totally different from the comics.  He’s smaller, still muscular, and has a fragile voice…totally opposite of the comics yet it still feels like bane.  We can’t actually analyze too much, since they are definitely going to edit his voice.

      Something else interesting, like another poster mentioned, Bane sounds like a revolutionary.  The mass chaos of this movie, the end of the world/doomsday feel to his voice, the fact that he wants to kill everybody in the field with his machine yet he’s telling them to take control of Gotham and the fact that he’s about to execute someone in front of them (I’m guessing to help convince them).  All this has me wondering what his motive is.  I actually don’t know much about the comics, so I don’t know if the comic-book Bane had a clear-cut end goal, but Nolan’s Bane definitely does.

      Bane ripped up Harvey Dent’s photo, and now this mysterious hostage also stands for something that makes him think a revolution is necessary.  The people who were at the shoot said the character was someone new.  I’m guessing it was someone we don’t know.  Who is this scientist you’re talking about?  I was thinking maybe Mr. Arkham or Lucius or some government official/lawyer..

      • http://grauskala.blogspot.com/ OneEyedWillie

        Well, all we can do is to speculate… but yes, I like Bane’s voice, I think is very unregular/displaced voice which makes him look more bizarre and sinister as you said. He seems to be some sick man or very old man, a guy with some sort of disfunction or illness. Very intriguing!

        About the hostage, well, some people said in the internet, that the dead fella is Lucious, some others are saying that guy is Gordon [which i doubt], and another group of people said is the character of Alon Aboutboul [the so speculated mad scientist]. I think must be some very important character to the plot. Alon is supposed to play Hugo, or dr Darkk. But again, is all speculation! But at the deep of my heart, i think the dead hostage is Lucious indeed…

        • Elvisionary

          It’s Alon Aboutboul. Watch this video and see for yourself. It’s clearly not Lucious. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nNaR6dZNb0&list=FL9fP5FCZI-F4

  • The Chicago Bat

    I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that Bane is staging a public execution of Gotham’s mayor.  Makes sense in context of his dialogue…

  • h4v0k_528491

    i like his voice. it sounds a little creepy and cool at the same time

  • Leftysmoke

    Settle down guys. You had to be there all day to really understand what this scene represents. You’re not getting much of a spoiler, besides hearing his voice for the first time. The voice is very creepy, for lack of a better word, and extremely animated. Tom is going to take the cake with this performance. The rest of the scene (hostages falling to their knees) and its dialogue was not played over the stadium PA. Obviously this is an important part of the film and Nolan didn’t want to reveal too much. The way the crowd was arranged, if one of the hostages were Gordon or another important character, it would be extremely hard to make them out. At first I didn’t notice that Bane had hostages, but as we were filming our crowd reactions, I then saw them.

    As for people stating that he has trouble speaking with the mask on, this is simply not true. At the end of the day, he gave out some prizes and spoke to/thanked the crowd for their participation. He did all of this through the mask and his native accent and voice was easily heard. Tom and Chris Nolan obviously brewed up one hell of a personality for their take on Bane.Anyhow, the opportunity I was given to be apart of this production, I will never forget. With that said, I think it’s lame that people who were at the top of the stadium had the audacity to record this part of the scene. I know everyone is entitled to their information, but the information we received prior to filming clearly said NO PHONES ALLOWED. I sat through all of this with my gf, five rows from the field, and STILL didn’t take one picture… That was out of respect to the crew and the film.Regardless, I know everyone will be very pleased with Tom’s performance and this scene is going to be epic. I’m still thrilled that I will be in it. Pure awesomeness!

    • Elvisionary

      Hey Leftysmoke, people who were attending the shoot said they did several takes of this scene and they were saying that with each take Bane’s voice got better and became more suited to his character. Thoughts on that? Do you agree?

      • Leftysmoke

        I’m not sure it could get any “better”. The first time he came out, it seemed like he was feeling out his lines. However, after that, it was pure performance. The “snorting” and heavy breathing was so awesome. He basically sounds like a complete mad man, captivated in his “liberation” of Gotham. With that said, I can definitively acknowledge that Tom will absolutely bank on this performance. I just cannot believe that I have to wait until next summer to see what the rest of Nolan and crew have brewed up. The suspense is killing me!

    Okay, I didn’t read all the comments, sorry about that. First of all, Bane looks awesome, so does Selina. It’s looking to be one hell of a big scene. Just can’t wait for the movie :D. Second: when de big trailer for TDK arrived was it then december 2007? Does that than mean that we could get the big trailer this december as well?
    Third: I think it would be a good move of WB that they’ll attached the first teaser trailer for Man of Steel to TDKR ;D. Considering the fact that it’s released a year after TDKR.
    And the new logo: FANTASTIC!!!!!!

      Pure provocation on Bane’s part…. Towards Batman ofcourse. It’s like hitting him under the belt.

  • Anonymous

    I think the fanboys who feel the need to criticize everything should just not read any Batman news for the next year. You guys are complaining about Tom Hardy’s height but you have no idea how Nolan is filming him. There are camera tricks to make people appear taller. You guys are complaining about Selina Kyle’s costume when we don’t even know if this is the final version. And now you’re complaining about Bane’s voice. Did it ever occur to you that this is meant to show that Ban is sick? For all we know, he’s suffering from Venom withdrawal. So here’s some advice for the fanboys. Go take your ADHD meds and learn some patience before you overreact to everything.

    • Leftysmoke

      I agree. If you look at the teaser, when Bane emerges from the bottom of the camera, he looks absolutely massive. Nolan knows exactly what he’s doing and Tom has one hell of a performance up his sleeve. The voice he has conjured up just proves this point even more. 

      • Autistic Batman

        I agree, bane is going to be awesome :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002501534152 Rob Phas

    When I first heard the voice, I thought Gordon had escaped from the hospital with his oxygen mask. That being said, I don’t have a problem with the voice. Bane still looks badass. I think people expected maybe a low growly voice? I wasn’t sold on Ledger’s Joker voice when I first heard it, and look how that turned out.

  • Rvg_26

    Ok. If you are Nolan, about to shoot what looks like a very important scene, in an uncontrolled set, where you can bet everything will leak out in a matter of minutes, wouldn’t you try and control it yourself? Would it be too far fetched to think maybe he asked Hardey to trow in a funny voice for the couple of cell phones that were surely recording. Personally, I dont mind the voice, its different. I trust Nolan enough to know that Im gonna love this movie however he chooses to do it, but my guess is, regarding Bane’s voice as well as many other things, we are in for a surprise.

    • Cold Pickle

      I seriously doubt it. There is no way Christopher Nolan could meticuously control an environment that large.  Not mention the waste of time it would be to have the actor play out a completely different voice just for the sake of dissuading his audience.  Having the voice leaked is a small price to pay when considering the other steps he took in order to preserve confidentially of details in this shoot.  This voice is very well trained and calculated; it’s not just something that is spilled out.  It has an iconography about it almost as prevelant as the Joker’s so not only am I fan of it but I’m also impressed about how important Christpoher Nolan has made the voice work for all his characters (Batman, Scarecrow, Joker, and now Bane).  Love it or hate it, that’s the voice in the film.  My money is that the sound department is gonna add a little more to his voice though..  Knowing Nolan, that contraption over his mouth isn’t imply cosmetic.  Finally I should add I’m a big fan of the voice.  It’s a complete surprise and is a character of its own that I keep listening to in order to better understand it.

  • TDKR_2012

    I think that bane’s voice is suprisingly cool. When everybody expected to hear a hulkish and monstrous bane (maybe like the bane of batman and robin, loooool) Chris Nolan and Tom Hardy gave us a much more interesting character with unique charateristics. We cannot forget that this is a reallystic bane and not a comicbook bane. And to all of the people who doubt Bane believe in Christopher Nolan, he deserves it.

  • Thejokersmiles13

    …i’ve never been to this site before but am interested in all the ‘hype’ about tdkr since i was an extra during the filming on sunday…i’ve had the chance to be an extra in several movies filmed in pittsburgh over the past few years (the haunting hour: don’t think about it; the kill point; warrior; she’s out of my league; steel town) and the best part of sunday, for me, was the chance to see the ‘out of the ballpark’ professionalism of this production team…absolutely brilliant.

    …on sunday, i left my cell phone in the car as we were instructed.  when i got to the set, i signed the required confidentiality agreement stating that no pics nor anything that happened on set could be shared or discussed with anyone.

    …there is mention of folks hanging in trees with cell phones…or people on the street watching filming..news choppers flying overhead….and there is nothing about that can be done about those situations…and..none of them have signed confidentiality documents.

    …but much of what has been posted here, and on other sites, has been from extras on the set who violated that agreement.

    …and in the posts about spoilers… whether things should be leaked…if that is right or wrong, the only undisputable fact that i see is that when you post pics or info that have come from people who have violated a confidentiality agreement, then you have a business/site whose success is based on the dishonesty of others..are you honestly ok with that?

    My first theory after hearing banes voice is that his character is a young Englishman when he possibly works with a young rahs. Since the Lazarus pits are apart of the mix, potentially, perhaps bane exposes himself to the pit and now he’s immortal. This is why he sounds like an aging Englishman now. The mask may be his only way of staying alive. Perhaps even involving the blue flower chemical within his gas mask. This is all an opinion.
