Batista has been able to play some very cool roles in Hollywood so far. He really wants to play Bane and he’s not keeping it a secret.

While speaking at Justice Con, Dave Bautista revealed that he wanted to play the role of Bane so much that he straight-up demanded the role. They weren’t even casting for that part, but he didn’t care.

“Oh, it would be Bane all day long. I’ve made no secret about this. I want to play Bane so bad I went to Warner Bros., had an appointment with them, had an appointment with DC, walked in the door and said, ‘I want to play Bane.’ I’m not kidding. They were a little like ‘Woah, we’re not even casting Bane.’ I was like ‘I don’t care, I’m playing him.’”

Zack Snyder has also made comments about trying to get Bane for Batista, but there are other roles he has in mind for the former WWE Superstar. We’ll have to see what’s in the pipeline for big Dave Bautista, but odds are there will be issues if someone else gets the role of Bane out from underneath him.

H Jenkins

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
