The Dark Knight Rises Movie Guide

	The Evolution of Batman&#39;s Big-Screen Villains</p>

By Rick Marshall

For every memorable superhero, there's a long line of villains ready to take him (or her) down, and Batman is no exception. Over the years, Gotham's favorite vigilante has amassed an impressive rogue’s gallery that ranks among the best in comics. With the arrival of The Dark Knight Rises, two more characters from Batman's list of foes were added to the character's big-screen canon, with Bane and Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman. We've assembled a gallery of Batman's big-screen foes over the years in chronological order from 1966's Batman: The Movie to TDKR.

    By far the best Bane in a Batman film. Tom Hardy was amazing and exciting to watch ! The Dark Knight Rises Bane wasn't over the top and chessy. Nolan and Hardy both created a character that was realistic dominant dark and could hold his own against Christian Bale. I absolutely love this movie

    In my opinion, the biggest transition from old style to revamped modern day is Bane. In the comics, Bane is more like Tom Hardy's in The Dark Knight Rises (from the trailers that are shown). Bane was a prisoner at a high-end jail and he was used in a military experiment to increase muscle strength and stamina, which proved successful with him. The look and attitude is definitely more frightening and realistic in TDKR than Batman & Robin. Bane is big, bad, and ready to execute the plans for Gotham's destruction!
