      Cool.

      I might need to make some trips down to the city to see some filing.

      In all likelihood, they actually will not be returning to Chicago for filming, which absolutely baffles me considering Nolan's affection for the city (he used to live down the street from where I work).

      Money is probably the reason. Municipal and state govs will offer hefty tax credits to get studio films made in their areas. Perhaps Pittsburgh simply offered better incentives.

      It's rumored to be the Lazarus Pit.

      Seems like an out-of-place story concept for the Nolan films, but I'll trust that he knows what's up.

      Here is a little background on how this was discovered. By the way, I think it's safe to say that this thread now contais....

      SPOILERS!!!!!!!

      Upon listening to the audio from the official site, someone took the audio and put it into an audio program to look at the spectrograph. This is what they discovered:



      Clearly a hashtag for Twitter. From there, everyone started following the user and using the hashtag. Which led to this page:

      http://www.thedarkknightrises.com/image.html

      The more that use the tag and follow the user, the more people that show up on the mosaic. When it was full, it would reveal the image of Bane above. However, someone found the image in the source code before everything was completed.

      Also, someone from over at IMDB had to say this:

      Bane is discovered after Ra's burns down a village with the league of shadows --- every citizen completely wiped out -- they watch as the mayhem ensues.

      However, before leaving, a young boy rises from a BURING PIT, the boy (young bane) is covered in flames.

      Apparently, he doesn't even flinch which makes Ra's intrigued.

      They take him in and teach him everything he knows So basically,

      Bane's only real advantage is that he has a genetic mutation that makes him impervious to pain. No super strength or chemical enhancers (tht i was made aware of)

      Stoked to see the creativity of the TDK viral campaign is still in full effect for TDKR.

      That's exactly how I wanted Bane to look: intimidating, like a muzzled animal ready to kill, but not buff to the point of absurdity or badly mutilated.

      I give them even more credit - I don't use Twitter, have no clue what a "hashtag" is, and would never have thought to analyze the sound file (not that I have the software to do it anyway). Clearly this was not marketed at my demographic even though I will see the movie

      As for the pic - Bane looks way too small, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt since the whole series has been pretty good.

      Bane looks pretty sick. The front tubes on the mask (or whatever they are) look like the bones of a hand.

      That is what everyone is saying, but the general consensus is that they are not.

      I agree. I think they are tubes that happen to look like it in the picture. Of course, as always, now that I've taken a stance on something, I'm probably wrong.

      if you look at the pic of bane, any ideas or knowledge of what that white(cigarette) dot and the red dot a little above and to the right of (eye).

      Call me a sucker but I'd like Scarlett Johansson to play catwoman. She's HAWT as Black Widow. More catsuits, please!
      Attention! I shoot basketball from the front row. I spend hundreds of dollars for expensive tickets. I smuggle in long, expensive cameras and lenses, and security doesn't even bat an eye. That's right. I'm special. All because I want to sell you a 50mm 1.8 lens so you can be just as cool. Have a good day.
