Blurb on the website about the mask being original
Director Christopher Nolan completed his epic Batman trilogy with the monumental “The Dark Knight Rises” (2012), which included the villainous character from the classic comics, Bane (Tom Hardy). And without a doubt, Bane’s “life-saving” mask became an instant iconic piece of movie memorabilia! In the movie, Bane is savagely beaten in prison while trying to save a girl’s life. Doctors perform complicated surgery on him, which allows him to walk, but leaves him in intense completely debilitating horrific pain. So much so, that he must forever wear a special mask that continually induces an anesthetic into his blood and lungs. Of course this “mask” gives Bane the appearance of some kind of monster, or perhaps a life-size alien insect. The mask instantly became one of the most sought after collectibles from the trilogy (I’d want it just for the replica of Tom Hardy’s face and head that’s underneath!!!). Many replicas have been created, but screen used originals have been hard to come by. One of these originals became available when Warner Brothers staged a contest to publicize the release of the “Dark Knight Rises” DVD and Blu-Ray. The grand prize was one of the actual screen used Bane masks from the production.This is that grand prize, which was shipped in a specially made plexiglass display case and life-size rubber head bust which sits on a clear plexiglass column stand. The mask comes with all the documentation from the Warner Brother’s contest, and the prize fulfillment company, as well as a Letter of Provenience from the original contest winner
Wonder how much it will eventually sell for. Hope Tom got the original one he wore
