The Batman: Dave Bautista Tried His Best to Play Bane

There were recent rumours going around that Bane might be included in The Batman.

"The Batman", directed by Reeves, will star Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, with Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis and Colin Farrell rounding out the cast.

The actor known for playing Marvel's Drax responded to a fan noting how an article speculates Dave Bautista could be playing Bane in The Batman, where Bautista actually says he tried to make it happen.

It now seems as though Bautista was there to pitch himself as Bane for Matt Reeves' The Batman. Obviously this could enhance his physique when the villain uses venom to pump up his body. This would be opposite Robert Pattison's Batman. Take a look at the artwork of Dave Bautista's Bane below. With that in mind, it probably wasn't anything personal as the studio is unlikely to have wanted to shoehorn in Bane just because Bautista wants the role.


It's unclear why the powers-that-be behind the Batman franchise didn't want Batista in the role. Let us know your views in the comments section below.

Plot details for The Batman are being kept under lock and key but the project will be centered on Robert Pattinson as a younger Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his formative years as Gotham City's protector.

The character of Batman's adversary has appeared in two Batman live-action films previously. It is also expected to be the first installment to a new Batman trilogy starring Pattinson.

The Batman is now set to hit theaters on October 1, 2021.
