Deleted Scene From The Dark Knight Rises Revealed
If you look at the film, unless they’ve cut it—and I’m sure they haven’t—there’s a whole early section for Tom Hardy where he’s fighting and being taunted by people. He’s got chains on him, and he’s standing on a wooden thing while people are attacking him. And in that scene, he’s wearing a much more ragged, primitive version of the mask.
It would seem though that she has not seen the film yet and when she found out from the interviewer that the scenes had been cut, she had this to say: Well that's an awful shame, but I suppose you have to cut things. I won't elaborate on it too much, because it isn't in the film, but there was another section that showed you why he had the mask and where it came from.
So perhaps we will see this when the film hits Blu-Ray later this year. The Dark Knight Rises is now in theaters.
