It would be a pretty unusual thing for there to be a half hour of extra footage laying around based on how Christopher Nolan makes his movies. With that in mind, there is a big scene missing from the film that we mentioned about a month ago. The scene in question is Bane’s Origin (See below for the description).
Whether this being included in the Blu-ray is just rumor/ wishful thinking or something more, we’ll need to wait a bit to find out.
Here is the description of the scene from costume designer Lindy Hemming:
“The thing that you should have seen during that sequence is [Bane] being injured in his youth. So one of the fundamental things about his costume is that he has this scar from the back injury. Even if he hasn’t got the bulletproof vest on, he still has to wear the waist belt and the braces. In that scene in the prison, where he’s learning to fight the same way Batman learned to fight, he’s wearing an early version of his waist belt. It’s showing support, but it’s not the finished one he eventually wears. He’s also wearing an early version of his gas mask, all glued together… If you look at the film, unless they’ve cut it—and I’m sure they haven’t—there’s a whole early section for Tom Hardy where he’s fighting and being taunted by people. He’s got chains on him, and he’s standing on a wooden thing while people are attacking him. And in that scene, he’s wearing a much more ragged, primitive version of the mask.”
