No discredit to Tom Hardy’s version of Bane, I love that performance, I loved that film. I’d just love a crack at it. I think I could bring an interesting twist to it and I think I could do the character justice. Not only in performance, but also in physicality.”
Dave Bautista added, “I’d love that role where I’d have to go back up to 320 pounds just to play this character, like that it would happen. I could play Bane in a way that’s not only menacing and ominous, but also freakishly intelligent. Bane would be the type of character that’s so menacing and so terrifying and so intelligent, he would hardly ever raise his voice.”
