Yesterday, we looked at how Tom Hardy nailed the voice for Bane in "The Dark Knight Rises."
But how did he end up looking so drastically different from previous incarnations?
We've been going through the Blu-ray combo pack of the film before its release, and last week mentioned there was some great early concept designs for Gotham's reckoning.
It turns out the great Bane was modelled after a bunch of animals including baboons, gorillas, and snakes along with car parts.
There are a lot more designs on the disc; however, we're going to share a few because they're so drastically different from the final result.
"The Dark Knight Rises" comes out on Blu-ray and DVD December 4.
Early designs had Bane in his familiar full-fledged face mask and hood.
Costume Designer Linda Hemming wanted to make Bane look animalistic with influence from spiders and gorillas.
Here's how he may have looked if he was hooked up to his venom serum.
