Tom Hardy was shot in an emotional pose while portraying Bane on set. Wearing the large, restricting costume was difficult for him, he told Empire. "It's uncomfortable because your body's really restricted...It's heavy and it's tight and the costumers need it to look good and solid." He adds, "You got zips and undershorts, underarmor -- body armor -- under that. It's all a bit of a faff. Forget about taking a s--t, that's not happening."
