As most New England Patriots fans know after watching him run in 2013, you don’t want to get in LeGarrette Blount’s way.
Especially when he’s wearing a terrifying facemask that makes him look like an infamous movie villain.
The newest member of the Pittsburgh Steelers took the field for organized team activities this week and wowed his Twitter followers by unveiling a mean new facemask.[tweet https://twitter.com/LG_Blount/status/476479026127990785 align=’center’]
Remind you of anyone? Of course it does. Blount’s menacing grill bears an uncanny resemblance to the facemask worn by Bane, Batman’s nemesis in the 2012 film, “The Dark Knight Rises.” Here’s a peek of Blount and his helmet in action.

As if he wasn’t scary enough.
The 250-pound running back sure strikes an intimidating pose, but the Steelers are hoping Blount can translate intimidation into on-field production after signing him to a two-year, $3.85 million contract in March.
