About

Bane vs. Pink Guy, also known as Bane vs. Filthy Frank, is an image macro series based on a screenshot from the film The Dark Knight Rises altered to include the Filthy Frank character Pink Guy. In the image, the Batman villain Bane is preparing to fight to Pink Guy.

Origin

On July 20th, 2012, the film The Dark Knight Rises was released in the United States. In the film, the characters Batman and Bane (portrayed Christian Bale and Tom Hardy, respectively) fight in a sewer (video below). The image is an alternate angle from this fight.



On September 4th, 2016, Twitter [1] user @artcocopuff posted the earliest known version of the image (shown below). However, the post includes a 9GAG watermark, indicating that the image did not originate on Twitter.
