Dave Bautista has confirmed that he is not playing Bane in Robert Pattinson’s upcoming film The Batman despite his best efforts.
For some time there has been speculation that DC supervillain Bane would be making his way into the DC Extended Universe. Whether or not that would be in his very own solo film or in one of the Robert Pattinson films, however, remains unknown. Guardians of the Galaxy star and Pro Wrestler Dave Bautista has, however, been the longtime fan favorite to play the role. Sadly the actor has confirmed that Warner Bros did not give him the part.
When a fan asked Warner Bros and DC to make Dave Bautista Bane, the actor confirmed that, despite his best efforts, it wasn’t happening:
Unfortunately it’s not. Tried my best??♂️ https://t.co/Dfn6UGzzlb

Plot details for The Batman are being kept under wraps 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 Batman will also feature the hero making use of his detective skills more than what we’ve seen before in previous iterations of the character. The film is also expected to be the first installment to a new trilogy with Pattinson as Batman.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, the film stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
