One is a South American prison escapee determined to destroy Gotham’s dark knight. One is half-dead medieval guard willing to protect his queen at any cost. Both strike widespread fear due to their sheer strength, immense size, and ruthless nature. Who are they? None other than Batman’s supervillain, Bane, and Cersei’s terrifying bodyguard, Gregor Clegane, also known as The Mountain on Game of Thrones. In this edition of face-off debate, we pose the question: who would win in the battle of the brutes?
Before diving into another great debate, we recommend watching Game of Thrones (HBO on The Roku Channel) and The Dark Knight Rises (Fandango NOW, Prime Video, Google Play, Redbox, Vudu) on your Roku device.
