First Bane picture and fresh casting news for Dark Knight Rises

It’s been a helluva week for fans of Batman

The first picture of Bronson star Tom Hardy in his Bane get up has surfaced on the web – you can see that to your left with more than a hint of Farscape’s villainous Scorpius about it. The picture was unlocked by a viral game launched to ramp up the anticipation for the Dark Knight Rises.

Three extra cast members have also been confirmed as Full Metal Jacket‘s Matthew Modine, Tom Conti and Joey King. Modine’s character is called Nixon, but no other details are yet known.
