Taking on the role of Bane in The Dark Knight Rises was a very easy decision for Tom Hardy and he’s very confident that his character will not disappoint “fanboys.”
Tom recently spoke with Total Film about how he was asked by Christopher Nolan (over the phone) to star as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.
” ‘Hang on a minute. You’re asking me to come round the world with you in a Batman movie, playing a villain, and the only downside to it is I have to wear a mask? Hmmm, let me think. I’ll get back to you… No, I’m f***ing there, man! Anything you need.’ ”
And that was that!
“I think Bane’s f****ng cool so I’m really excited to play him,” Tom explained. “It’s not the guy in Joel Schumacher’s film, but it shouldn’t disappoint fanboys…”
And Tom was able to transform himself into the character with the help of his mask saying “it allows a performance to be free.”
We can’t wait to see it!
