Dark Knight Rises Teaser

It seems that the respirator from the photo released prior is Bane’s “mask”. No articles since then to suggest a second version resembling a Luchadoor front is probably for the best.

Batman and Gordon clearly get the crap kicked out of them by The Prison escapee (regardless on where Bane’s birthplace is internationally). My theory on The Hospital scene is Jimbo talks to Bruce Wayne (since he too is wearing a wristband) having found out his secret identity after the confrontation shown at the end of the preview which appears to be in the improved Batcave.

Whether or not Chris Nolan and company will actually have the brilliant assassin break Batman’s back (which made this villain so popular in the first place) is still up in the air. I hope so, otherwise what’s the point of bringing in this character?
