03/03 Tom Hardy’s Bane’s facial expressions.

Now, we came here not as conquerors, but as liberators to return control of this city to the people. And at the first sign of interference from the outside world, or for those people attempting to flee, this anonymous Gothamite -this unsung hero- will trigger the bomb. For now, martial law is in effect. Return to your homes, hold your families close… and wait. Tomorrow you claim what is rightfully yours.

A Case for Gay Bane

riddle-me-chris:

The above panel is from an issue Secret Six written by Gail Simone. The girl he’s in bed with is named Spencer, a stripper whom Scandal Savage set Bane up on a date with. Bane takes her to a carnival, talks about growing up in the most hellish prison in the world, defends Spencer from muggers, and subsequently beds her. Now, I like Gail Simone. I like her writing. But for some reason this issue just felt false to me. I don’t know if this story was her own idea or if editorially mandated due to the upcoming release of The Dark Knight Rises. I wouldn’t be surprised if this little romance was mandated in order to affirm in the eyes of the readers that Bane has a solid case of the not-gays so we won’t be questioning it in TDKR. But for some reason seeing Bane in bed with a woman just feels contrived and wrong to me. I had never assumed Bane was gay before or for that matter really thought about his sexuality at all, but this year in the comics and on screen we’ve been asked to believe that Bane is all about the ladies. I just don’t buy it.

That moment in TDKR made me cringe without exactly knowing why. Imagining Bane and Talia al Guhl together just seems horribly wrong; like seeing a rhinoceros mating with a panther.

Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying Bane is gay because of X, Y, or Z. I can’t support that at all. It’s not canon. I just think he should be gay. Feel free to disagree. This is just my opinion. I just think it fits, I think it’s believable, and I think it can easily be worked into his backstory (not to fall back on tired prison stereotypes, but it could work). He’s just such a completely male-oriented character that seeing him being romantic with a woman just seems forced to me; like creators just write characters (particularly strong alpha-male characters) straight by default. We really don’t have any gay villains in Gotham (that are canon anyway). We’ve got a few gay/bisexual heroes, but no gay villains. It seems to me that there’s a diversity vacancy here; one which Bane could nicely  fill (no puns). I’m not saying we have a quota to fill, I just think gay Bane would work better than this:

I mean think about it. How cool would it be to have Batman’s most intimidatingly formidable villain be like, Yeah, I like dick…

Uh, not you, Dick. Figure of speech. You just… keep doing your thing, Man…
