‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Villain Bane Gets Blamed For Super Bowl Blackout by Twitter Followers

Bane Super Bowl
Warner Bros.

So if you were watching the Super Bowl last night you witnessed the game being delayed because of a power outage. Lots of speculation as to what caused it, blame on Bain.  The one good thing is I guess it gave everyone the chance to take an extra long bathroom break or grab some more beer and make jokes on Twitter that the blackout was actually caused by “The Dark Knight” villain Bane.

Here’s proof that people have entirely too much time on their hands.

(@MoeTrainsTracks): Gotta say, I’m damn impressed by this comeback. All credit goes to Bane and/or Doctor Claw. #2013SuperBowl #SB47



jordan desouza (@djreversejd): Good thing bane didn’t show up during the power outage



jacob spencer (@GingerJakeyBear): Who else thought Bane was gonna show up, as soon as the power went out?



Zach Kohn (@kohnisrad): I’m just going to be a man and admit that I couldn’t think of a Bane joke when the power went out.



Jason Cousins (@I_am_who_knocks): There’s no way that CollegeHumor won’t do a “Bane at the Super Bowl” video now. “What a lovely voice, Beyonce…”



Simon Welch (@Sottle): So from what I’ve gathered from Twitter this “Superbowl” is an event where people watch adverts make Bane jokes and salivate over Beyonce?



Chris Herrera (@ATXBOSS): I really thought Bane was gonna emerge from the tunnel when the power went out! XD



Jake Meyers (@bIgCountry0072): Am I the only one who instantly thought of bane walking out and Randy Moss being the only one who didn’t fall down with the field??



Adam (@FREAKENLOCO): I’m pretty sure Bane was the reason for the power going out.



Kevin Pietrasinski (@KevinPie43): Bane was responsible for the power outage.



February 6 (@Screwstone_): I thought Bane was going to come out when the lights when out just like in the movie



#ItsMySeason2|Apr.13 (@PhazzeMusic): Bane from Batman about to walk out on the stadium.



Connor Drake (@cdrake43): Still pissed the power outage wasn’t bane #whatashame



Richard Lawson (@rilaws): Bane is really gonna ruin the end of this game.



Ketan Khambhayta (@Try2StopMe): I thought Bane was going to come out when the lights went out and shout, “LET THE GAMES BEGIN!”.


(@_Nick626): Stiiiiiiill waiting for the field to cave in and bane announce to the world its coming to an end.
