Dark Knight Rises: Bane Revealed…

So starts the viral ad campaign for the next installment of Nolan’s Batman franchise.

Fan Made Poster…

This comes to us from Hero Complex:

In a stroke of viral marketing brilliance, Christopher Nolan gave his intrepid fans on Twitter a sneak preview of “The Dark Knight Rises“: the first photo of Tom Hardy as Bane in the next Batman film.

As fans discovered, tweeting “#thefirerises” helps fill in the hidden Tom Hardy image on “The Dark Knight Rises” website, which launched Friday. Holy Twitter, Batman! What a way for Nolan to mark the first week of filming.

Tom Hardy is becoming one of my favorite actors, and while I didn’t love the movie Bronson, it was his performance in there that proved to me he was the right choice for Bane, and no doubt helped Nolan’s vision as well.

I can’t wait for 2012…

As we are still in the rumor stage surrounding THE DARK KNIGHTS RISES it’s not yet clear who she would play if she does indeed show up in Nolan’s 3rd Bat-film. Most popular guess right now: Talia al Ghul.
