“Smallville’ gig was another one of those things I got through WWE. At that point, I had absolutely no aspirations to pursue acting.” – Dave Bautista
Dave Bautista made clear on social media that for over several years, one of his fantasy film roles is Batman’s villain Bane. However, the wrestling symbol turned movie star doesn’t just talk the discussion. During his appearance at the JusticeCon (through Collider) promoting his role in Zack Snyder’s “Army of the Dead,” Bautista uncovered he coordinated a gathering with the Warner Bros. and DC Movies to pretty much demand the role of Bane at whatever point the studios choose to revive the villain character on the big screen. “I need to play Bane so bad, I went to Warner Bros., had a meeting with them, and even had a meeting with DC, strolled in the entryway and said, ‘I need to play Bane,'” Bautista said. “I’m totally serious.
They were a little like. ‘Woah, we’re not in any event, projecting Bane.’ I was like, ‘I couldn’t care, I’m playing him.'” Bautista may need to stand by some time before Warner Bros. chooses to bring Bane back to the big screen. The character was broadly played by Tom Hardy in Christopher Nolan’s 2012 comic book tentpole “The Dark Knight Rises.” It’s an exhibition that keeps on drawing the headlines even after all these years after the fact (see Nolan saying a year ago that critics didn’t know liked Hardy’s performance that much.
So could Warner Bros. revive Bane with Hardy’s work actually waiting in the minds of the movie lovers?
At least there was a 15-year gap between Robert Swenson playing Bane in “Batman and Robin” and then Tom Hardy playing Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Given that Warner Bros. and DC Movies are all set to embrace the multiverse, it’s entirely conceivable Bautista could get his opportunity to play Bane shortly. The upcoming “Flash” film will star two adaptations of Batman, one played by Michael Keaton and the other by Ben Affleck. There’s also Robert Pattinson’s “The Batman” dispatching in March 2022, directed by Matt Reeves. The producer is bringing new iterations of Penguin being played by Colin Farrell, Catwoman being played by Zoe Kravitz, and the Riddler being played by Paul Dano to the screen invites Bane springing up in the sequel, hopefully. Bautista is unquestionably expecting it.
