Tom Hardy for Batman 3?

While there has been lots of speculation about Joseph Gordon-Levitt reteaming with his Inception director Chris Nolan for the next Batmovie, it seems that another one of that movie's co-stars will be visiting Gotham City.

Tom Hardy, who has recovered nicely from Star Trek Nemesis and whose Mad Max role appears to have been delayed is supposedly joining the cast. No word on his role but it's probably safe to say he's a villain. Or an even-older-than-Chris-O'Donnell-Robin!

Details here:

You beat me to the punch, Captaindemotion. I will now spend the remainder of my day sitting in my corner weeping uncontrollably.

Anyway, Tom Hardy did a great job in Inception, so no surprise Nolan would want to reteam with him for Batman 3. I do wonder what role he'll play.

I hope that William Fichtner returns. His face was just way too recognizable to just play a bank manager in the first 5 minutes of the Dark Knight.

Re: Tom Hardy for Batman 3?

I like this casting choice, Tom was fantasticly funny in "Inception" and brilliant in "Rock 'n' Rolla".

Re: Tom Hardy for Batman 3?

I knew it! I was certain he'd show up in the third movie after his stint in Inception. Very talented up and comer and was great in Bronson. And with the delayed production of Mad Max, it all works out. Although Riddler would be cool I still envision somebody like Crispin Glover or Jude Law playing Nigma. Hardy would be interesting though. Maybe he'll just be Ducards brother exacting revenge.

Re: Tom Hardy for Batman 3?

With the delay of production on the new Mad Max films, I thought WB might sign him up to play Lex Luthor in the upcoming Snyder/Nolan Superman film, but it looks like he's headed to Nolan's next Batman film instead.

Good. That makes me indescribably happy.

He did indeed. He's becoming one of those scene-stealing actors, who really adds to any movie he's in. Can't say I would have predicted it from Nemesis but it's nice to see he's gotten over what could have been a fatal blow to his career. As to who he could play, the thing is, he has the ability to play smart, like The Riddler, or physical, like Deadshot or Bane.

Re: Tom Hardy for Batman 3?

This is good news. Great to hear his career is on the upswing (after the false start of Nemesis) and that casting of B3 is going ahead.

Obviously there's gonna be tons of speculation as to his role. He could be the Riddle, but given his appearance in Bronson he could be Bane for all we know.

Hardy is a wonderfully versatile actor, and his physical transformation in Bronson was really indicative of his ability to be a chameleon in any role that he does. Which is probably why Nolan likes him. I was actually thinking that Hardy would be suited for Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder and Chris Nolan's planned Superman reboot, but I guess he's heading to Gotham City instead.

Good. Hardy was great in Inception and the best thing in Nemesis.

Re: Tom Hardy for Batman 3?

I didn't care for him in Nemesis (mainly because I could never buy as a clone of Picard), but I thought he was terrific in Inception. And given Nolan's penchant for reusing actors, this is hardly surprising. I think Joseph Gordon-Levitt would be much better for the Riddler, though.
