Following the images leaked earlier today from the India production of Christopher Nolan's third Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, comes a potential spoiler-filled description of what the shooting may entail. The Dark Knight Rises Community has the scoop which, for the time being at least, should only be considered a rumor.
"Eyewitnesses and crew members told us of a particular scene being filmed," the site reports, "where a bald-headed child wearing ragged clothes emerges from the well and pulls his hood over his head. From the conversations, we reckon this is a young Bane, emerging from a vat of Venom, trained by Pence's Ra's al Ghul. The years of addiction to Venom builds him to be a massive monster with amped up senses, intelligence and physical prowess."
Is this the route that Nolan will be headed with Tom Hardy in the role of Bane? Reports have not, as of yet, confirmed the actor's presence in Jodhpur, but if this is, indeed, a young Bane, the entire India-based production may only be securing flashback sequences. We'll have more on the film as information develops, but please share your own speculation below.
Starring Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Juno Temple, Josh Pence, Daniel Sunjata and Nestor Carbonell, The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20, 2012.
