Director Christopher Nolan is keeping the details of The Dark Knight Rises very hush-hush, but he did give fans a little treat: the first official photo from the film! That creepy masked man you're seeing is Tom Hardy as Bane, a convict who escapes from prison (and has some seriously huge muscles). He's not as horrifying as Heath Ledger's Joker (really, what is?), but it's sufficiently creepy enough to keep us very excited about the next Batman film. How do you feel about it?
