Tom Hardy is reportedly signed on to star in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Batman film in an unknown role. Deadline suggests that Hardy might be playing a villain, as there is much speculation concerning the villain or villains in the next Batman installment.
The actors who portrayed the villains in Nolan’s last two installments in the Batman franchise, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, were Liam Neeson, Cillian Murphy, and Heath Ledger. Each portrayed their respective characters with intense dedication and innate actability, fully translating their complex characters from the pages of the script to the silver screen.
Hardy is short on neither dedication to a role nor raw acting talent, as he demonstrated in his award-winning method performance in the 2008 film Bronson. Regardless of what role he plays in this Batman film, he has a distinct flair and charisma that will fit perfectly into the top-notch ensemble cast.
Hardy most recently appeared alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Marion Cotillard in Nolan’s critically acclaimed blockbuster Inception. He is currently set to star in the McG-helmed romantic-comedy This Means War alongside Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, and Chelsea Handler; as well as Mad Max: Fury Road and the John Le Carre adaptation Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.
