If those unending paparazzi photos of Tom Hardy as Bane on the set of 'The Dark Knight Rises' haven't given you a clear enough picture of Batman's most life-threatening foe yet, good news: the January issue of Empire Magazine features Hardy-as-Bane on its cover, in all his muscle-bound glory. Also, Christian Bale, as Batman, holding a ray-gun.
Not much more information to glean from these covers, but, hey: pretty cool. In the issue, Hardy calls Bane a "terrorist" as well as "a really horrible piece of work." Good luck, Batman!

The January issue of Empire is already in the hands of subscribers; check out Coming Soon for some scans.
