His father was a British mercenary who died leaving his rebel girlfriend pregnant with their baby. She was thrown in jail and he was born and raised there.Bane was born in the fictional Caribbean Republic of Santa Prisca, in a prison called Peña Dura ("Hard Rock").
The character's gone through many name changes. He was a minor (and stupidly used) character in the execrable Batman & Robin movie with the real name of Antonio Diego. He's been played, or voiced, by veteran Latino actor Héctor Elizondo and in next year's Justice League Doom by Argentinian American actor Carlos Alazraqui.
In Nolan's universe, the character will be played by British actor Tom Hardy. I've yet to come across anything about the new film's character origin and fear that Nolan has just wiped clean any of his Latino roots.
Is this the right way to put it? Yes. I guess it is.
That's it for today's Latino Washout Report.
