Dave Bautista Reveals He Wanted To Play Bane In The Batman

Dave Bautista Reveals He Wanted To Play Bane In The Batman

Dave Bautista has revealed that he wanted to take on the role of Bane in the forthcoming Batman movie starring Robert Pattinson.

Of course, he didn't get the role, and he's obviously disappointed about that, but there's no reason that he couldn't don the famous face mask on another occasion if the opportunity arises.

That's almost a certainty, given that Tom Hardy's portrayal of Bane in The Dark Knight Rises was only eight years ago.

Anyway, the question arose because a fan was asking about the casting for The Batman, which is a new take on the classic DC universe story of Bruce Wayne and his caped crusader alter ego.

The Twitter user said: "I just read an article speculating that @DaveBautista may be, should be, could be, playing Bane in the new #Batman movie with Robert Pattinson," they wrote. "Please, DC movies...make it happen."

Well, they're not going to make it happen, because Bautista responded: "Unfortunately it's not. Tried my best."

That's all you can do, Dave. That's all you can do.

However, there is a lot to look forward to in The Batman, regardless of whether the former WWE Superstar and Guardians of the Galaxy actor is going to be taking part.

As well as Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz stars as Catwoman, Paul Dano will portray The Riddler, Jeffrey Wright will be James - future commissioner - Gordon, and Colin Farrell will be The Penguin.

Andy Serkis is also on board to play Batman's butler Alfred Pennyworth, and he recently revealed that the film is set to be 'darker than previous' iterations in the Batman canon.

When asked about a 'darker, broodier' Batman, he said: "I would say that's not far from the truth.

"It's very much about the emotional connection between Alfred and Bruce. That's really at the centre of it. And it is a really exquisite script that Matt has written."

Serkis also revealed that he's not looking to Michael Caine's famous performance in the Dark Knight trilogy to inform his own performance.

He continued: "He [Caine] was fantastic. His Alfred was legendary, I couldn't even begin to go there, really.

"You find it for yourself. It's like playing these iconic roles in Shakespeare, you go back, you revisit them and you have to make it your own, and see what it is about the character that connects with you and your personal Venn diagram."

The Batman currently has a release date of October 1 2021.
