Nerdy Fact #76

Did You Know?

In a few scenes of The Dark Knight Rises, Bane can be seen quietly knitting in the background. This is a reference to the main antagonist of Charles Dickens’ novel A Tale of Two Cities, who would knit as she watched public guillotine executions. Screenwriter Jonathan Nolan said the novel had a major influence on the film.

Born into a military family, Dylan was not in one spot for a long time, though his nerdy ways followed him wherever he went. Finally settling down in Ottawa to start his career, he pursued a hobby and wished to share his love of Nerdyness with others. And thus, The Nerd is the Word was born!
