A few weeks ago, Tom Hardy said he would love to come back and resume the role of one of Batman’s most physical enemy, Bane. The question is, could this ever be a reality? Most fans of Batman either really enjoyed his portrayal of Bane or was really disappointed and left making jokes about his voice (but who didnt joke around with his voice?, even South Park hopped on this). One thing that strangely bothered me was the fact that Bane had no Venom, the juice that gives him his super strength. With Tom Hardy wanting to come back and play Bane once again, DC has an opportunity to correct a wrong. Now, if you are a comic book fan, you are aware heroes and villains are easily brought back from the dead (if Bane even died in The Dark Knight Rises). The problem is, how can Bane be reintroduced?
The answer comes in the form of the upcoming film, Suicide Squad. Now we enter my ridiculous idea, what if Enchantress brought back Bane? Let’s say she finds Bane’s badly injured/dead body and begins to heal him through her magic. Now, i doubt this would be a thing, but hey, imagine the plot twist. This would only be the start of Bane however.
What if Enchantress was in fact, working for none other than Hugo Strange to bring back one of Batman’s most physically foes? Lets just say there’s a bigger plot in the DC cinematic universe that involves Hugo Strange wanting to take over the world, starting with Gotham and Metropolis. His first act though would be to bring back Bane. At this point I may be just giving DC a ridiculous plot to go with, but hey, you can’t tell me this would be worse than The Green Lantern movie. I already apologize for bringing up that movie, let’s hope Deadpool goes great.
Moving on, why would Hugo Strange want to bring back Bane? Think about it, if your a nerd in school, who would be someone you want on your side? That`s right, that muscular dude who could defend you. Why would Bane listen to Strange though? This is where we bring in the Mad Hatter, which would be hysterical if they brought in Johnny Depp for this. The Mad Hatter would use his mind control technology to put Bane under Hugo Strange`s control.
Now it’s time to introduce the venom to buff up the already monstrous Bane. Hugo Strange is no fool, he knows Bane got defeated once and he doesn’t want that to happen again. So naturally, Hugo Strange develops Venom and thanks to the mind control, Bane readily accepts it. Now I know this isn’t how Bane gets the venom in the comics, but hey, since when does DC or Marvel always stay 100% to the comic books.
Some of us may not want Tom Hardy back, some of us do. Either way, if that were to happen, I just provided DC a great way to do it.
