Comic book writer Chuck Dixon was thrilled when he heard that his co-creation Bane (writer Doug Moench and artist Graham Nolan are also credited with co-creating the character) would be the main villain in The Dark Knight Rises. Now that the movie is out, Philly.com interviewed Dixon to get his take on Bane’s portrayal in The Dark Knight Rises:
I am beyond glad that Nolan had the juice in Hollywood to stick to his guns. From interviews I’ve seen, it’s clear he understands the character and he gets what we were going for. It’s not exactly what I created, but he’s physically imposing and Tom Hardy is one hell of an actor. I can’t imagine Bane being better portrayed.
