The official website of "The Dark Knight Rises" released this first image of Tom Hardy as Bane.
"The Dark Knight Rises" launched its official website today for the third installment of the Christopher Nolan-directed franchise.
The website TheDarkKnightRises.com is up and running with strange chanting and a first-look image, and a Twitter account -- @DarKnightRises out of the UK -- is tweeting away with news like this, via Variety, that Matthew Modine, Tom Conti and 11-year-old actress Joey King have been cast in the film, which will shoot in Pittsburgh later this summer.
Warner Bros. launched the official site today, which comes up as a black page with audio of people chanting. The image, seen above, is of Tom Hardy as Bane.
