Darth Plagueis was not the first Sith to master the art of cheating death. There was another, far more powerful Dark Side user who existed for many generations prior to Plagueis. His name was Darth Andeddu, an ancient Human originating from the planet of Prakith. This Dark Lord of the Sith was also the very first to use the title of "Darth" and was capable of extending his own life well past what any Force user had been capable of before.
Darth Andeddu was referred to as the Immortal God-King of Prakith. Knowledge of his existence was scarce following the Jedi Order's attempts to rid any mention of him from galactic records. However, many still knew of his existence and his immense power, which remained attainable well after his eventual death.
It is said that Count Dooku was one of the Sith who set off in search of Andeddu's knowledge and even discovered a Holocron, which contained reference to many of Andeddu's works. It is believed that this is where Dooku learned the ability to conjure Force Lightening - a power he supposedly passed on to his master, Darth Sidious.
YouTuber Star Wars Theory have pieced together a great video, detailing information about Darth Andeddu and the Jedi / Sith who came into contact with him and his relics. Be sure to watch the full video below and consider subscribing to their channel!

With legends destroyed and most of the new content featured around the movies and what happens around them, it would be nice to see a time before the movies and what it was like, I mean the Old Republic cinematics can blow you away with the few minutes they get, imagine a 2 hour movie of that.
And since the rule of two is such a big part of the lore, why not explore the guy who created it and what his time was like that forced him to kill off his own people so the 2 left could become stronger.
True, I feel they're focusing primarily on top tier characters so more people are aware of it and flock to see it. Although with a decent marketing campaign, and the Star Wars tag on it, I feel Disney could pull off just about any spin-off title for any character in the universe. Boba Fett is one I'm interested in seeing only because we saw very little of him in the original trilogy. His back story and various hunts would be very exciting to see explored, imo.
Yeah it's totally understandable to go to the characters that have a lot of fan recognition. It's the safe choice, Bane's never even mentioned in any of the movies by name, he just became one of the more popular EU characters to people tend to know about him(he is mentioned in the Phantom Menace novelization and early script though).
Taking a Legends character and making a movie about them always risks a bad backlash because it's so far away from the timeline they have set up. Bane is a 1000 years before anything we've seen in the movies so there's a risk it could bring confusion.
Buuuuuuuut, it's also a super interesting character that shaped the whole story as we see in the movies. I don't expect it to happen, but it's something I really really want.
