Tom Hardy is Reuniting with Christpher Nolan on Batman 3

11 Comments

Oh, Mad Max, will we ever see you again? Maybe. Possibly soon. Hopefully.

Until then, though, the new Mad Max himself, Tom Hardy will be reuniting with his “Inception” director Christopher Nolan on the third “Batman” film. No word yet on the role Hardy will play in the movie, just that it will be a “lead role”, which probably means he’s playing Bat’s latest villain. Or ally. Or one of those.

Let the guessing commence!

Nolan is expected back to direct “Batman 3″ for Warner Bros., which if it picks up after the events of “The Dark Knight” (and there’s no reason why it wouldn’t), will find Batman (Christian Bale) once again playing the outlaw protector to Gotham City.

It’s interesting casting, though. If Hardy has indeed been tapped to play the latest villain, he could very well be everyone from The Riddler to Bane. I mean, the guy is a chameleon. Check out his two latest roles below and you’ll see what I mean.

Yup, this is the same guy:

    Yeah I was thinking same thing. I could see him playing either of the roles. I’d actually love to see him as Deathstroke, or Deadshot. He’s got the personality for it.

      I agree, it’s VERY possible. It’ll be a surprise character like one of those more than likely(I hope).

      He’d be a decent Croc, but after reading the “Joker” graphic novel by Brian Azzarello and drawn by lee Bermejo, I can’t see Croc as anyone but like Michael Clark Duncan or someone built like that.

    Oh man,oh man,oh man! Could he be Hush?! I don’t think he’d be right as The Riddler or Bane but it’s possible he could be either one of those but something about him makes me think he’ll be portraying a NEW character to the big screen,one who hasn’t been explored yet in any Batman film.

      I was thinking that too. I still think Hush would make for a great villain. Sure they’d have to tweak the story a bit but it’d be rather itneresting. They could almost play him like “Wrath” from “The Batman” with aspects of Hush, like why he wants to take Batman down and such.

    dead shot would be awesome need more rare villianse in comic book adaption movies not those mainstream popular villains like joker 2 face … i love joker but i want to see some new face of evil

    Maybe he is not suited for this role.. I’d be pleased if Keenu Reeves will replaced him

    Tom Hardy is a great actor. He’ll kick ass in any role.

    I have a good feeling that he’ll play HUSH, or maybe THE RIDDLER.
