I need to talk about this. Tom Hardy’s choices on how Bane moves throughout TDKR are brilliant. Take this scene for example. Notice how Bane does not twist at the waist at all. He turns his body through the movement of his legs, not his torso. Why? Because of his back injuries. Anyone with a bad back knows twisting is a no-no. He doesn’t even twist his neck as he turns. Most people turn their heads first as they turn around, but Bane’s injuries would limit that. These limited movements also give Bane that wonderful overall lumbering appearance, like a big man. Bravo, TH!
